Amir Rizk, a gold expert, predicted a decline in gold prices in the coming period for a number of reasons, the most important of which is the expectation that the US Federal Reserve will raise interest rates at its next meeting, which will encourage investors to invest in the dollar as an alternative to investing. into gold.
