Throughout the past week, the global gold price has sustained its upward trajectory, consistently reaching new peaks. This surge has been buoyed by several key factors, including negative economic indicators from the US, a rise in US unemployment rates, and remarks from Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell during his testimony before the US Congress.

Investors are increasingly hopeful that the Fed might initiate monetary policy changes sooner than expected. Analysts suggest that gold has witnessed significant gains over the week and may continue its upward trend as central banks and investors alike turn to gold as a safe haven asset.
