The price of the precious metal enjoyed a sharp increase due to investors hoping that the United States would implement a wider-ranging stimulus package in an effort to support the economy after being negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Furthermore, the price of US dollars fell to its record low over the past two years, a factor which has forced many financiers to seek safe havens in which to invest in, with gold ultimately representing their top choice.
