With 2023 just days away, many experts are sharing their thoughts on inflation, a recession, gold prices, and more in the new year. Many big banks are predicting a recession within the first half of 2023 and a rise in the unemployment rate. Investors are also worried about what the new year will bring.

Precious metals experts say those people may want to consider investing in gold since they believe there’s a good chance that the gold market will see a major move that could push the metal to new highs.
