Gold is continuing on its upward path.
The precious metal has hit a fresh three-month high today, rising above $1,237 a troy ounce for the first time since November.
Gold has been on a steady upward trend since December, amid investor anxiety over geopolitics following the election of US President Donald Trump. The rise in gold prices corresponds with a downward trend for the US dollar over the same period.
The yellow commodity has risen 8 per cent this year. But analysts have warned the outlook for gold remains uncertain, with expected interest rate rises in the US likely to dampen demand for the precious metal.
