Care in defensive assets, especially in gold, comes amid an unprecedented soft monetary policy of the financial regulator of the United States. Analysts have not ruled out speculative demand, the price of gold can reach $2 thousand per ounce.

According to leading analyst “Discovery Broker” Andrei Kochetkov, precious metals are always sensitive to the quantitative easing of the Federal reserve system, which in the current year, in fact, plans to print dollars at 10-20% of US GDP, becoming the main purchaser of Treasury bonds for the financing of economic support programs in the background COVID-19. Against this background, is the weakening of the U.S. currency.Gold prices soared above historical high, helped by a weaker U.S. dollar relative to a basket of currencies to the lowest in two years, says the analyst of “Finam” Sergey Drozdov.

However, in the long term there is no certainty that the rise in gold will be sustainable, said Dmitry Pushkarev.
