On Friday, Gold prices were steady making the safe-haven asset an even more desirable asset for investors whose concern is currently in the upcoming French presidential elections and the ongoing tension in North Korea which has shaken up most investors.

Buying Opportunity

Gold purchasing has also been expected to go up with the recent pullback on Thursday opening a buying opportunity for physical purchases especially jewelry shops and makers seeing an increase of 100% from retail sectors which accounts for the gold coming close to a rally above $1,300 before the week ends.
