Gold quotes are consolidating around $ 1891 per ounce.
As most experts expected, prices for the precious metal have been strengthening since the beginning of the week, taking advantage of the break in trading. At the same time, the USD Index fell to the psychologically important level of 90 points. The increased interest in gold is also reflected by statistics from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), according to which the number of net speculative positions over the past week increased to 269.2 thousand from 260.3 thousand a week earlier.
In general, against the backdrop of a further weakening of the USD Index and more frequent cases of mistrust of COVID-19 vaccines, investors will prefer protective assets, and gold quotes will continue to rise.
