The Investment Hour: All that glitters…

Gold has reached $2,000 an ounce on the futures market this month and gotten very close in spot terms as well. The precious metal has been trading at multi-year highs for over a year now, since breaking $1,400 over a year ago. This year, the Covid-19 job losses and major economic slowdown supercharged an already surging gold price.
