A vaccine for Covid-19 is on the way, so gold investors should probably pack it in, right? After all, a valid and distributable vaccine will likely create euphoria, and push the stock market up and gold down. The economy will recover, maybe even roar, and with it fear of the pandemic will disappear and leave little need to own gold and silver.
At least that’s the consensus view among many mainstream outlets. We know this because the kneejerk reaction to Pfizer’s vaccine announcement on November 9 caused the Dow to soar 3% and gold to fall 4%, with silver crashing 6.2%.
But does that signal the end of the need for gold and silver? Are those mainstream analysts right, that it’s time to sell since a vaccine is coming?
