Gold hits record levels


In light of expectations for a softened monetary policy, increased tensions between Moscow and NATO countries, as well as the stock market downturn, the price of gold continues to show growth, reaching a new peak.

This surge has astonished both investors and traders, sparking discussions about the prospects of further increases in the price of this precious metal.

Recent data has shown that gold has surpassed its previous historical maximum, reaching $2127.45 per troy ounce, which is a significant increase compared to the previous record set in December of last year, when it reached $2071.98.

The rise in gold prices implies a global shift among central banks towards accumulating precious metals in search of diversification away from the US dollar. This move is driven by concerns about persistent budget deficits undermining the real value of the dollar and potentially contributing to inflation.

Additionally, the attractiveness of gold for central banks lies in its material nature, separated from the complexities of the financial system.

The precious metal has reached a 50-year high against the currencies of most major developed and developing economies. The trend, demonstrated by the low volatility of gold, underscores broader market sentiments.

Techopedia, a firm specializing in chain measurements and price forecasting, anticipates that by 2025, gold prices could exceed $2700. Factors contributing to this include high demand in physical markets and geopolitical tensions in regions such as the Middle East and Europe.

While today’s rise in gold prices may represent a temporary peak, some experts believe that the precious metal will ultimately recover and surpass its previous highs. Gold’s status as a safe haven asset in times of uncertainty could propel it to new highs in the coming years or even sooner.
