On Wednesday, Gold climbed to $1,843 per ounce, its highest price in two months, breaking through the $1,829 per ounce resistance level, amidst falling yields and mounting geopolitical tensions. Gold prices continued to rise on Thursday, as the crisis between Russia and the Ukraine escalated. US President Biden has expressed fears that Russia will invade Ukraine and the U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken is scheduled to meet Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Geneva on Friday in a last-minute attempt to prevent an attack against Ukraine, while the EU threatened Russia with economic sanctions. 

Gold price reached almost $1,848 per ounce on Thursday. Gold is a safe-haven asset and the price of the commodity rises as tensions between Russia and Ukraine mount. In addition, the current Omicron wave is affecting inflation and unemployment rates in many countries and the resulting economic uncertainty pushes the price of the commodity up. If the price of gold continues to climb, it may find resistance at $1,877 per ounce, while if the price of gold decreases, the $1,800 level may provide support, while further down, support may be found at 1,782 per ounce.
