Gold price globally

In a related context, the global price of an ounce reached $2,336.

On the other hand, global gold prices witnessed a recovery during Thursday’s trading in an attempt to compensate for the losses that gold incurred during the previous sessions, which pushed it to record its lowest level in a week. This comes as gold maintains its gains ahead of the main data issued by the US economy this week.

The main reason behind the decline in gold prices over the past two days is the rise in the levels of the US dollar, which yesterday recorded its highest levels in two months against a basket of major currencies. Which pushed gold to decline further in light of the inverse relationship between them.

The rise in US dollar levels supports the significant decline witnessed by the Japanese yen, which reached its lowest levels since 1986 at above the level of 160.00 yen per dollar, which supports the levels of the US dollar.
