On Wednesday, gold prices are still surging their scintillating, now rallying again to reach another high level of more than 1,950 dollars per ounce.
A novel height of prices above 2,000 dollars looks unavoidable, and manufacturers can thank incentive from the Federal Reserve, less yielding bonds, and a weakening United States dollar for that.

During an interview with a media outlet, CNN Business, chief investment managing director and strategist at QMA, Ed Keon said that when rates touched zero, gold is much better than saving money in the bank. He added that historically, gold is a good hedge during times of uncertainty and volatility.
Fed hasn’t proved good against the dollar and weighed gold
Gold inclines to do well at many times when the dollar drops. The Treasuries and the greenback are usually the safe port of selection for nervous and conservative investors. But currently, that step backs on currencies, and bonds are much minimal, and many have collected silver and gold. Especially when problems are surging about a weakening the world’s economy and further cases of Coronavirus in different parts of the United States.
This week, in a report, Joni Teves, a UBS strategist, said that gold had been increased by expanding strategic interest when investors were searching to spread portfolios due to negative real yields and raised macro uncertainty.
Many investors may even be searching forward to the possibility of higher inflation. That’s why the trillion dollars in loans from the Fed and an extra load of debt the United States government is suffering due to Coronavirus stimulus programs can more weaken the dollar.
