Quotes for June contracts for gold on the New York Comex exchange by 13:46 Kyiv time increased by 0.7% – to $2361.7 per ounce. Since the beginning of the year, the precious metal has gained about 12%.

UBS analysts note that the rally in the gold market turned out to be “faster and stronger than our positive forecasts.” As a result, they raised the forecast for June by $250, to $2,300 per ounce, and for the end of the year – also by $250, to $2,500 per ounce.

According to analysts, a new round of growth prices are expected after the first interest rate cut by the Federal Reserve, as this will trigger the purchase of the precious metal by exchange-traded funds.

Citi analysts also raised their forecast for the next three months by 9%, to $2,400 per ounce. In the second half of 2024, prices could be around $2,500 per ounce.
