Gold is now focused on $1,700/oz
Increasing demand for the safe havens on the back of COVID-19 concerns boosted the price of the ounce troy of Gold to levels last seen in January 2013 in the vicinity of $1,700. Furthermore, rising open interest and volume coupled with the positive price action are supportive of extra gains in the short-term horizon.
