gold news week review 19 october 23 oct 2020

It was another one of those weeks where gold and silver gained upward momentum at the start of the week but tumbled at the end. The prices of the metals were mainly influenced by the movement of the US dollar.

No price surprises were witnessed this week as gold traded around the $1,900 mark and silver stayed around the $24 level. With no other major catalyst around the corner, the US election could be the only upcoming driver that will impact the prices of the precious metals.
