Gold Breaks Triple Top 1,518 Level – Boosted Safe Haven Demand Plays
Arslan Butt • 1 min read
During the early Asian session, the yellow-metal prices surged to 1,525 area as the global stock indices flashed red amid intensifying uncertainties surrounding global trade concerns. Gold prices have climbed more than 1% due to rising safe-haven demand.
The market is still trading the risk-off sentiment over intensifying geopolitical tensions from the Middle East after the Saudi attacks as well as Brexit issues.
Gold is one safe-haven asset, everyone runs to during times of uncertainty and trade war. The whole situation is likely to keep gold in the range of $1,500-$1,550.
On the other hand, the United States and Japan trade discussions seem to have broken down. Both nations are trying to reach an agreement during this week, but the deal could be based on limitations and are possibly not expected to include changes to tariffs on autos and auto parts.
