"This is gold's breakout year. We are in the third bull market of my lifetime – and we have a very long way to run,” Rickards said.

Rickards eyes several possible catalysts for an explosion in the gold price:

  • A sharp fall in the USD
  • War threats from North Korea
  • Trade war with China
  • Trump impeachment proceedings

The last week’s increase was linked to a statement by US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who said on two consecutive days that the US administration favors a weak dollar in trade. The dollar sank to a three-year low on his remarks.
