The gold price took a drastic decline this week as it averages below 1300’s USD/oz. This a low we haven’t seen since the second week of June, and a drastic decline we haven’t seen in over three years. The gold price has done relatively well for the past three months averaging above 1300’s USD/oz, but this week the gold price has only managed to average above the mid 1200’s USD/oz. The gold price started the week off with a weekly high of 1311.30 USD/oz, but by Thursday fell to 1253.88 USD/oz. This is a decline of more than 3% in less than a week. The gold price today is 1254.3 USD/oz.
