Russia-Ukraine Conflict: Gold Prices Soar to New Peak

NEW DELHI — As Russia invaded Ukraine, gold prices skyrocketed to their highest level in more than a year, Hindustan Times reported.

In India, the gold price today surged by ₹1,400, hitting the peak of ₹51,750 per 10 gms in the early morning trade. This comes amid a steep fall in the stock market with Sensex down by 1432.50 points and Nifty reporting a slump of 410.70 points at the time of opening. Several Asian stock markets also plunged in the aftermath of the Russian invasion.

The bullion has witnessed a spike amid the increasing standoff between Russia and the West. Economic experts say gold is now being historically seen as a hedge against major economic and geopolitical ructions.
