Gold Tests $1,700/oz Again Taking YTD Gains to 10% As Global Stocks Plunge

◆ Gold reached new multi year highs today, reaching its highest since December 2012 at $1,702.56 per ounce prior to profit taking in gold futures saw gold fall back to $1,670/oz.

◆ Gold prices rose above the $1,700 per ounce level for the first time in more than seven years, as stock market routs continued due to concerns about the impact of the rapidly spreading coronavirus

◆ The health crisis and economic crisis being triggered by the pandemic is impacting risk assets and driving investors towards safe haven gold which saw gains of over 6.5% last week and nearly 10% year to date.

◆ Global stocks are crashing with the Nikkei closing down 6%, the Euro Stoxx down 7.8%, the FTSE down 6.5% and S&P futures down another 5%

◆ Already massively overvalued stock markets are in full on crash mode as investors anticipate a severe recession or Depression as the coronavirus becomes the ‘straw that break’s the camel’s back’.

◆ Gold is one of the top performing assets in the last twelve months and so far in 2020 with a gain of 28% in the last 12 months and 10% year to date. Year to date losses in stock markets are between 12.75% on the S&P and losses of 19% on both the Nikkei and the Euro Stoxx 50.
