He recalled that “from the beginning of the crisis caused by the epidemic coronavirus infection, gold has secured a status of protective asset”.

“When one after another collapsed stock, commodity, currency and cryptocurrency markets, gold, on the contrary, not only not lost, but only increased in price. The reason is quite simple — in a moment of crisis, investors looking for safe assets that are minimally impaired, namely the gold in a given period of time is the best exhibits these qualities. Furthermore during the crisis of the noble metal is only added in the price”, — is spoken in the comment of the expert.

He notes that “for the first time in 9 years the price of gold exceeded $1,900 per ounce, and today already reached historical highs, trading at around $1942”.
