Gold leaps on diving greenback

On Thursday, gold managed to grow due to the depreciation of the evergreen buck as well as concerns about talks between the USA and North Korea.

On the Comex exchange gold futures rallied 0.1%, hitting $13,554.8 an ounce. At the same time, the US dollar index, showing the purchasing power of the evergreen buck to the group of six leading currencies, headed south by approximately 0.03% hitting 89.32.

The appreciation of the evergreen buck makes gold less accessible to keepers of other assets.
