Gold prices in Egypt jumped, during today’s trading, to rise by 8 pounds once, compared to yesterday’s prices.
Naguib Club, former general secretary of the gold division of the Cairo Chamber of Commerce, told Masrawy that the price of a 21-gram gold today increased to 790 pounds per gram, compared to 782 pounds yesterday.
The price of a gram of 18-carat gold was about 677 pounds, and a 24-carat gram was about 902 pounds, and the price of a pound of gold reached about 6320 pounds.
Globally, gold prices rose on Friday, to a two-and-a-half-month high, and are heading to achieve the best weekly performance in 6 months, supported by the decline of the dollar and a decline in US Treasury bond returns, while investors are cautiously awaiting the US non-agricultural jobs report due to be released later today. .
By 05:24 GMT, spot gold rose 0.3% to $ 1820.35 an ounce after reaching earlier in the session its highest level since February 16th. The metal is up about 3% since the start of the week, and US gold futures rose 0.3% to $ 1,820.70.
