Trade wars and other issues have created uncertainties, resulting in gold price hikes. Some experts believe the yellow metal price may remain above $1400 an ounce until the investors pull back to lock profits.
Share markets globally continue to remain cautious over the recent geopolitical developments. Some expect the metal to recover, where the market's volatility may put it on the path of a new hike as it continues to build a strong foundation above 1200 an ounce.
The weak dollar and increased tensions between the US and Iran resulted in gains in gold that reached a year-high at $1,406.56 an ounce.
Before the hike, it was at $1,410.78 on Friday, the highest since Sept 4, 2013. The US continues to impose sanctions on Tehran, while it may not initiate a war. The controversy resulted in a weakened dollar, which was three months low against other currencies.
The reports by the Fed related to policy easing to counter global slowdown and the issues created by the global trade tensions are responsible for the recent dollar weakness.
Experts predict the resolution of issues between the US and China during the G20 meeting in Japan. An aggressive rate decline on gold items was seen in key markets like China and India, where the sellers offered heavy discounts on them. The rates have been declining due to the weakened dollar.
Since 2016, for the first time, the 10-year US yield dropped below 2 per cent, while the central banks are considering policy easing. Gold was at higher rates, mostly due to global central banks' buying, but in 2019, gold markets were declining.
The last few months' reports find several global central banks like Russia, Hungary, Kazakhstan, China, and other regions were buying the yellow metal – accumulating it, although in a minimal quantity, creating demand, especially when global growth forecasts were declining.
The metal has been used since historical times for preserving capital and during market turmoil and is considered one of the safest investments.
The reports by Kitco reveal Russia has been adding gold to its reserves, and its central banks bought about 200,000 ounces of the metal or 6 tonnes, in May.
The purchase was made before the rally. The reserves of gold in Russia increased from 2 per cent to 19 per cent in the last quarter of 2018 (as per the World Gold Council data). With the latest hike in price, gold retained its status as the most expensive.
Some investors who missed the recent rally are eyeing the white metal silver that may follow the uptrend to close the gap.
