  1. Price of gold charged in Asia, in the early hours after rebound in the oil price boosted the price of the precious metal as an instrument for hedging against inflating. Gold has moved in the same direction as oil for 11 of the 14 trading days this month the gold market will be looking strongly to the OPEC move. It is expected that OPEC will formalize a cut, and if oil rallies we expect gold to move with it. Gold for delivery in December rose as much as $2.80, or 0.5 % reaching to $595.40.
    Some investors buy gold as it can hold its value better than other assets when inflation accelerates and some invest in the gold, as they purchase gold when the prices are low and sell the when the prices are high they treat this as kind of investment for profit making
