Due to the intensifying trade war between the US and China, there has been a record rise in the price of gold and silver. At 11 am on the first business day of the week, the price of gold had crossed the psychological level of 39 thousand. During this period, the price of gold rose by Rs 550, ie about 1.45 per cent, and it was trading at Rs 39,300 per 10 grams.
If the same momentum is maintained for the next few hours, then it is likely that the price of gold will cross the level of Rs 40 thousand per 10 grams on Monday itself. In addition to gold, silver saw a rise of Rs 670, or 1.48 per cent, and was trading at Rs 45,275 per kg.
