“Dollar is mostly weakening and that has continued to be the number one supporter of Gold,” said FOREX.com analyst Fawad Razaqzada
The yellow metal remains bullish on the daily charts and has the potential to venture higher amid the weakening U.S. dollar, says Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM. From a technical standpoint, the fact that there have been consistently higher highs and higher lows verifies the bullish bias on the daily charts.”
Germans Investing Heavily In Gold
Meanwhile, according to Deutsche Boerse, which offers Gold-backed securities, Germans have been investing heavily in Gold.
The increase is due above all to the high demand from institutional investors, said Michael Koenig, managing director of Deutsche Boerse Commodities GmbH. However, an increasing number of asset managers, family offices and retail investors are becoming interested in Gold as an asset class.
