Gold Surges … New Record, Once Again


Gold surges to new record high once againDay, after day, after day, after day … and so on. Gold continues to surge past the previous day’s record highs. It hit $897.30 on the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX), which was higher than the record of $894.40 on Wednesday.

Gold was helped today after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke indicated more interest rate cuts are on the horizon. That resulted in the dollar sharply falling and gold strengthening.

At 5:11 a.m. EST, spot gold was at $893.50.
