Gold spot and futures hit new highs. What's behind the recent surge?


The international gold price has been steadily rising in recent months, and last Friday, it successfully broke through its historical peak to reach a new all-time high. The reasons for this surge are varied.

In recent months, the international gold price has risen across the board. In different countries, regions, and economic situations, gold has generally increased in value, even reaching an all-time high last Friday. What are the reasons behind this surge in gold prices?

  1. The intensification of international disputes and a downturn in the economic situation have led to a significant increase in investors' demand and enthusiasm for safe-haven assets. Gold, being the most widely recognized and convenient safe-haven asset, is undoubtedly the first choice of investment for most people.
  2. The overall expansion in the demand for gold has led to a continued rise in its price. Due to the economic downturn, central banks of many major economies have chosen to purchase large amounts of gold, and many investment institutions have also started to hoard gold on a large scale. The consecutive days of price increases have further encouraged ordinary investors to join in, causing the momentum to grow like a snowball.

There are many other factors still under debate, such as whether the Federal Reserve will cut interest rates, the upcoming U.S. election, and the weakening position of the dollar as an economic weapon, among others. It can be said that the current price of gold is not caused by a single factor or a single economy, but by a combination of multiple factors.

Many investors who usually don't focus on investment and the spot or futures markets have also begun to try their hand at participating in the gold market upon seeing its continuous and unabated rise. However, it is still necessary to be aware that every increase has an end, and all investments carry risks. It is crucial to invest within one's own capacity and range.
