Gold Nears Record Highs In Euros as Deutsche Falls To New Record Low Showing Bank Contagion Risk

by GoldCore

* Gold has consolidated on recent gains this week and has crept higher in all major currencies (see LBMA prices below) and is nearing all time record nominal highs in euros

* Deutsche bank’s new record low at €5.80 underscores German and European banking contagion risk

* FTSE 100 opens slightly higher after trading delay of 90 minutes on trading trading services ‘issue’

* GE falls the most in 11 years after Madoff whistleblower calls it a ‘bigger fraud than Enron’

* Gold prices are marginally lower today but are currently set for another higher weekly close as safe-haven buying continues

* The wider economic, monetary and geopolitical backdrop will support safe haven assets and investors without an allocation to the precious metal should cost average into physical gold
