Gold jumps to its highest


LONDON: Aug 30 (TNS):  Gold has jumped to its highest since November as investors bought bullion as insurance against falling prices of other assets after North Korea tested its missile over Japan.

Spot gold , which rose for a third straight session, was up 0.9 per cent at $1,320.64 an ounce by 1355 GMT after touching $1,325.94, its highest since Nov 9.

Other precious metals benefited, with silver rising 1pc to $17.60 after touching $17.67, its highest since April 25.

Silver, which broke its downtrend when moving above $17.50, is poised for further gains. If we see this breakout starts to stick, you could argue that silver has the opportunity to do some catching up since the (bullish) investment positioning in silver is much lighter than in gold. Platinum gained 1.2pc to $998.50 after marking its highest since March 2 at $1,006.30.

  2. You really make it appear really easy along with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I think I would never understand. It kind of feels too complex and extremely extensive for me. I’m taking a look ahead in your next put up, I’ll attempt to get the cling of it!
