The Gold price closed today on the rise for the fifth session in a row. The futures maturing in April NYMEX gained 0,3% to $1.388,60 an ounce. It was from last January 13 that the gold price did not reach these levels. The price of yellow metal benefited from the unrest in the Middle east and from the weakness of the dollar . Today in many countries in the Middle East there were protests and violent clashes. Egypt agreed to let Iranian warships pass through the Suez Canal , The risk of a confrontation with Israel, which called Tehran's move a "provocation ", has increased the appeal of gold to investors.More and more investors are therefore increasing their positions in gold, the ultimate safe haven.
