NEW YORK, Oct. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- As the presidential election approaches, speculation regarding a new stimulus deal has affected the markets. For instance, optimism over more federal fiscal aid has pushed the stock market and gold higher at the end the week. To reduce the impact of the pandemic on the economy, various measures have been taken, such as near-zero interest rates and economic stimuluses for business and individuals. Such measures have impact the price of precious metals. "What is happening in gold is we've had a stimulus-on/stimulus-off style news flow. This has whipsawed a lot of gold traders," TD Securities commodity strategist Daniel Ghali explained, according to Kitco News on Friday. "Right now, the focus will continue to be on the election. Election countdown mode is here, so the next 20 days will mostly revolve around that… With both the Trump and Biden agendas estimated to cost between $5 trillion and $5.6 trillion over the next decade, both plans would provide substantial tailwinds for the long gold trade." Coro Global Inc. (OTC: CGLO), Yamana Gold Inc. (NYSE: AUY) (TSX: YRI), Kinross Gold Corporation (NYSE: KGC) (TSX: K), NovaGold Resources Inc. (NYSE: NG), Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited (NYSE: HMY).
In addition to the pandemic and its implications, various recent technological innovations have had an impact on gold demand as well. Various financial services, through which gold can be purchased, have shared recent developments designed to make gold trading easier and more accessible to a wider demographic. For example, the British-based Glint Pay Services announced a new peer-to-peer payment services which allows users to send amounts of gold directly to each other, all within the company's app. "Glint's P2P technology enables gold, trusted globally, to be used as money in electronic payments beyond the existing fiat money system; it frees us all from the whims of government-issued currencies," said Glint CEO and founder Jason Cozens.
