Governments around the world have enacted epic levels of stimulus, even at the cost of budgetary prudence. This combination of money supply expansion, fiscal stimulus and rising government debt is bullish for gold, especially at a time when real interest rates in most of the world’s major economies are negative, which has slashed the opportunity cost of allocating to gold in global multi-asset portfolio.
