The gold price in 2017 has taken a dramatic fall recently.
Since the beginning of March, gold prices are down 4.3% to $1,200. In fact, the metal has declined every single day this month for eight consecutive sessions.
But frankly, it should not come as a surprise. At least, not if you’ve been following me in this space.
After all, I’ve been talking about how the gold price had likely moved into overbought territory and that it was ripe for a correction.
Rare gold anomaly – an event so rare, it’s only happened twice in 20 years! The first time it created $1.25 billion in new wealth virtually overnight. The second time, it created a cash windfall of $6 billion. And it’s about to happen again. Find out more.
And the combination of a pending interest rate hike and a rallying dollar have teamed up to send the price of gold into this sell-off.

- [By Dan Caplinger]
The stock market lost ground on Monday, sending major market benchmarks lower by more than half a percentage point. The Dow lost its grip on the 20,000 mark in the wake of concerns about economic growth and new U.S. immigration policy, and some believe that the broader geopolitical climate could have a negative impact on global commerce that in turn could start affecting multinational corporations’ business prospects. In addition, bad news from some individual companies weighed on the markets, and Transocean (NYSE:RIG), Rite Aid (NYSE:RAD), and New Gold (NYSEMKT:NGD) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.
