gold news week review 3rd 7th August 2020

Although gold and silver soared last week, with gold to a record new high, they both declined as the week came to an end. Gold surpassed the $2000 USD ($2794.08 AUD) price last week, and set new records for Gold in both USD and AUD. Silver prices, which have been proven to rise tremendously in the past, often following a strong and sustained gold price rally, also went up as well.

Widespread media coverage among other factors like low real yields and the weakened US dollar, remain to be the major causes of the metals’ price surge.
