Gold surges to record, US dollar drops

41666.jpegGold surged to a record, extending its rally, as the dollar's drop spurred demand from investors for wealth protection. Silver advanced to a 30-month peak and platinum to the highest level since May.

Gold for immediate delivery advanced 0.4 percent to an all- time high of $1,280.80 an ounce and traded at $1,280.75 an ounce at 3:01 p.m. in Singapore. Futures for December delivery climbed to a record $1,282.30 an ounce. Cash silver reached a high of $20.9587 an ounce and platinum $1,620.75. Should silver exceed $21.355, it will reach the highest in about 30 years, Bloomberg informs.

The gold/silver ratio, used to measure the ounces of silver needed to buy an ounce of gold, has been on a steady decline since late August. It stood at a nearly 8-month low of 61.27, way below the average of 64.38 over the past 28 years.

Spot platinum hit an intraday high of $1,617.5, within sight of a near 4-month peak of $1,618 hit in the previous session. Platinum is on course for a weekly gain of 5 percent, the sharpest in 8 months, Reuters says.

 

Certainly readers already know that the Prosecutor's Office of Nanterre has ordered that Marine Le Pen, secretary of the Rassemblement National (former FN) and parliamentary to the Assembly, be submitted to psychiatric examination.
