Gold now targets the key $2,000/oz mark
Prices of the ounce troy of Gold remain on the rise and surpassed the key $1,900 mark to clinch all-time highs around $1,945 during early trade on Monday. Rising open interest amidst a positive performance is indicative that further upside remains in the pipeline. That said, Gold could well be on its way to test the critical barrier at the $2,000 level per ounce in the short-term horizon.
