For the first time this year, gold has broken past the psychological barrier of $1300, jumping slightly above the significant price point on Friday before dropping back down. The market has been waiting for this to occur as international political tensions have been on the rise recently. As mentioned last week, the strained relationship between the United States and North Korea have investors relying on the safe-haven of gold as an investment. This has been further emphasized by the recent joint military exercises undertaken between South Korea and America.

Furthermore, this week has shown more fear in the international community in light of the terrorist attacks in Barcelona. While this may have caused more of a speculative jump in gold prices, it highlights an important atmosphere of political fear. This sentiment remains prevalent and is causing the bullion to continue to rally.
