The Telegraph is reporting today on the ‘New Gold Rush’:
With the discovery of gold there in 1848, the California Gold Rush brought 300,000 people into the state, transforming what was then a backwater into the embodiment of the American Dream.
Gold was down $13.90 to $869 yesterday and silver was down 43 cents to $16.73. Gold traded flat in Asia and has fallen marginally in early trading in Europe. But with oil prices rising and inflation pressures increasing internationally, gold will be well supported at these levels.
After last week’s more than 3% gain in gold, gold surged to nearly $890.00 in early trading in Asia prior to succumbing to subsequent profit taking. The London AM Gold Fix at 1030 GMT this morning was at $887.25, £453.91 and €573.60 (from $863.50, £434.64 and €556.74 on Friday).
A firm note tracked the Gold price overnight and it is currently $888.90. Closing above $880 adds to that positive tone and the next resistance level stands at $897. The London AM Gold Fix at 1030 GMT this morning was at $887.25, £453.906 and €573.604 (from $872.25, £445.48 and €568.61 yesterday).
