Bullish Gaps in Gold – Safe Haven Demand Triggered

The Asian session opens dramatically as most of the safe-haven assets got gaps on the back of bullish fundamentals released during the weekend. The precious metal gold prices soared 1% as an assault on Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities bent the appetite for risk, ultimately expanding demand for the safe-haven bullion, while investors anticipated monetary loosening from major central bank meetings.

On Saturday, drones bombed an oil processing plant at Abqaiq and around Khurais area, tapping out daily 5.7 million barrels of crude production. Around 50% of the kingdom’s oil output has been impacted as a result. The news is keeping gold and crude oil on fire.

In addition to this, investors are placing bullish bets on gold ahead of interest rate decision from the Fed, which is very likely to cut the interest rate later this week.
