On Monday, gold remains in the green zone, despite continued pressure from the dollar and the positive dynamics of stock indexes. Investors are still concerned about the situation with the spread of the pandemic (more than 100 thousand new cases of infection are registered throughout the world per day); therefore, the demand for protective assets, including gold, remains high.
In an interview with Fox News, US chief medical officer Jerome Adams warned Americans that next week would be "the hardest and saddest day for most Americans" and compared the pandemic with the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 and the September 11, 2001 attacks. He noted that the next week could be a turning point in the fight against the virus.
Considering the above, the situation in the global economy continues to deteriorate, so most experts believe that the medium-term precious metal will retain an upward movement vector.
