Gold Fields Limited (ADR) (GFI) Dips As Gold Hits 7-Week Low

Gold Fields Limited (ADR) (NYSE:GFI) shares are 2% in the red in afternoon trading because gold spot prices have continued to decline as more and more investors expect the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates during the next FOMC meeting next month. If the Fed raises rates, gold will not be as attractive of an asset and the potential for future hyper-inflation will be lower. Nevertheless, gold bulls feel that there could yet be substantial upside in the commodity if global conditions continue to deteriorate, although cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin are also starting to eat into gold’s domain of being a safe haven for investors outside of cash and stocks.
