Palladium saw an increase on 4/19, while all other metals took a dip.
Even though gold took a small dip earlier this week, the yellow metal has been surging recently. In fact, the value of gold has increased 12 percent this year. Intesa Sanpaolo, a bank noted for its forecasting abilities, is predicting that the surge will continue. Gold may fall mid-year if the Fed decides to raise interest rates as expected, but prices will likely bounce back by the end of the year. The recent surge can be pinned on geopolitical uncertainty seen around the world. Factors contributing to the rising gold prices include upcoming European elections and Brexit, tension between the US and the Middle East, US relations with Russia and China, and an increase in demand in India.
