DailyFX analyst Warren Venketas says gold is done being the second fiddle to other commodities and will soon make its way back to $2,000 per ounce. He told Kitco News that it could reach those 2020 record highs next year. He expects the yellow metal to climb to $1,916 per ounce by December. In other news, some experts say the 4% rule won’t work as well in the coming decades due to lower projected stock and bond returns.

Experts say the 4% rule, a popular retirement income strategy, is outdated

Market conditions are pressuring the 4% rule, a popular rule of thumb for retirees to determine how much money they can live on each year without fear of running out later.
