Global Concerns Over Escalating Conflict: Dh1 per Gram

The deadly explosions in Gaza on Tuesday raised concerns among global investors about the escalation of the conflict, leading them to seek refuge in safe-haven assets.

Market Analyst Insights: Dh1 per Gram

Ipek Ozkardeskaya, a senior analyst at Swissquote Bank, suggested that while the situation in the Middle East may worsen, the market’s perception of the news will gradually diminish, and risk assets such as gold and the Swiss franc will eventually lose their gains. Nevertheless, it remains too early to relax vigilance, as Israel’s potential for an offensive still looms, and a lack of success in diplomatic efforts could lead to a significant drop in appetite.

Safe-haven flows amid geopolitical tensions in the Middle East continue to be a key driver of gold prices, with the risk of further conflict escalation potentially supporting prices.
