Gold crosses $2,000 for the first time in history

In a historic week in precious metals investment, the price of gold broke through the $2000 dollar per ounce mark.

After crossing the $2,000 milestone, gold continued to register gains yesterday, further adding to its all-time high. Don’t forget, it was only a week prior that gold stormed through the previous, longstanding all-time high of $1,922 per ounce, reached in 2011.

At the time of writing, 6th August at 16:00, the price of gold sits at $2,067.66 per ounce. The continued upward trajectory of the gold price is nothing short of remarkable.

Why is the price of gold soaring?

While indeed remarkable, precious metals expert, Andrew Maguire believes the positive price action gold is entirely logical, stating you “couldn’t ask for a better scenario,” for a historic gold rally. A unique combination of strong physical bullish drivers and paper market forces are powering the gold price to successive all-time highs.

Additionally, amidst the economic uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, the unlimited Quantitive Easing of the US Federal Reserve is weakening the US Dollar. As more US dollars are pumped into the economy, the dollar simply devalues against the price of gold.

Precious metals industry outlook on gold

A wholesaler himself, Andrew Maguire, reports that further increases in the gold price are anticipated among fellow wholesalers.

In this market, Andrew Maguire states that very few wholesalers are willing to sell physical gold bullion at current prices. As Andrew Maguire sees it, very little “vaulted gold bullion will come to sale, at least, until gold reaches $2500 per ounce.”
