Speaking on gold, silver prices hitting life-time highs and the triggers involved in this rally, Prithviraj Kothari, National President at India Bullion and Jewellers Association (IBJA), said, "Gold and silver prices are rising due to the one-sided physical buying by US-based big investors. Since, the dollar has been nosediving and bond yield has almost gone negative, big investors have found gold, silver and platinum as investment haven that has triggered bulk physical buying by big investors across the world."

Highlighting the reasons for rise in gold and silver prices, Anuj Gupta, Deputy Vice President at Angel Broking said, "The global markets are losing faith in the US economy that has led to dollar crash at the Dollar Index. This crash in dollar has led to lower yield in bonds and other investment tools that resulted in emergence of gold, silver and other precious metals as investors haven. Apart from this, fresh tension between the US and China has added further fuel in the gold, silver price rally." Gupta said that this gold, silver price rally will continue at least for the current quarter till there is some concrete positive news coming in on teh Coronavirus vaccine test.
