Coronavirus became the only major factor shaping gold demand
Gold prices can arrive amid a growing uncertainty around the coronovirus epidemic and negative interest rates, which are increasingly used by central banks in many countries.
Analysts at Swiss investment bank UBS Joni Teveza believe that gold prices may rise to $ 1800 an ounce. According to him, in the near future, UBS will focus on a target price of $ 1,790 per ounce.
Last week, the World Gold Council published a report on demand trends for precious metals in the first quarter of 2020, stressing that the global outbreak of coronaviruses is “the biggest factor affecting gold demand.”
“As the scale of the epidemic and its potential economic impact began to emerge, investors looked for safe assets. Against the backdrop of global uncertainty and financial market volatility, gold received the highest quarterly investment in the past four years,” the report stated in.
