Gold price globally

The global price of an ounce reached $2,336.

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 in light of gold maintaining 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 the levels of the US dollar is supported by 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, thus supporting the levels of the US dollar.
