Gold price now within spitting distance of $1700 as € gold closes August at new all time monthly highs
Back on July 27th when the gold price was trading around the $1600 level we put out a piece titled “Gold price heading back towards $1700 in the next few weeks?” – and that is exactly what has happened.
As gold closed out the month of August it got as high at $1693 – just $7 shy of $1700.
Gold $ monthly:
In $ terms gold closed out the month at its highest level since February this year, but in terms of €s gold has closed at its highest monthly level it has ever closed at.
Gold € monthly:
And not to be outdone gold priced in Swiss Francs has also closed at the highest level it has ever closed at on a monthly basis.
Gold CHF monthly:
In terms of £ gold we’ve also got the best monthly close since February this year.
Gold £ monthly:
It would be fair to say that the rally in the last couple of weeks seems to have caught investors napping and a run into $1700 territory this week is certainly on the cards. The next real challenge for the gold price will be around the $1777 level so we’ve got plenty of run left in this price move before any stiff resistance should be met.
A couple of months back many were saying that gold had now moved into a bear market. The fact that gold has just made two fresh all time highs on a monthly closing basis in €s and CHFs would suggest that after a few months of sideways action the bull in gold is well and truly back.
