Many investors are turning to gold as a hedge against inflation and to add balance to their portfolio amid an assortment of economical issues.
(PRWEB UK) 23 November 2012
Spot Gold was up 0.1% to $1,731.36 an ounce on Friday morning, heading for a weekly gain of 1% this week.
A weakening US dollar pushed gold prices higher as the euro firmed amid Greek bailout progress. The dollar suffered its biggest weekly drop in 2months, with a loss of 0.8% this week.
A weaker dollar is good news for buyers holding other currencies, making dollar-priced commodities more affordable.
Gold has also benefitted amid worries about the US fiscal cliff, with tax hikes and spending cuts expected to take place early next year.
A spokesperson from Physical Gold said:
“Gold has continued to make good progress this week, benefitting from various global factors. Many investors are turning to gold as a hedge against inflation and to add balance to their portfolio amid an assortment of economical issues. Gold bullion bars and coins are a good way to protect your assets as the value of currencies continues to be unpredictable.”
Physical Gold is continuing to watch these latest gold developments with interest.
