After reaching a record high of $2,051/oz in early August, gold suffered its largest one-day decline in seven years on 11 August, dropping back below $1,900/oz. Gold has already recovered to $2,000/oz. The bout of profit-taking in gold is short-lived as noted by economists at UBS who believe a bounce towards $2,300/oz is on the cards.
In the near-term, gold may move as high as $2,300/oz, particularly if geopolitical tensions rise.
