Fundamental Report: The gold prices have seen remarkable ups and downs throught the year and as 2024 begins, Dollar weakness has been a prevalent feature in recent gains in both gold and silver. Dollar Index falls below 101 and also geopolitical tensions remain elevated. Dollar weakness has been a prevalent feature in recent gains in both gold and silver. However, investors might witness the dollar falling to a much greater extent in the upcoming months as a result of a decision by Russia and Iran to trade between themselves in their local currencies instead of the US dollar. Recent gains fall on the back of severe dollar weakness, the continuation of geopolitical unrest in Ukraine, the Middle East, and a new announcement by Russia and Iran, but more on that little bit.Multiple news sources including Reuters News announced that Russia and Iran have finalized an agreement to not use the dollar and instead use their local currencies between themselves. This was announced by Iran’s state media on Wednesday. Russian and Iranian banks will now use infrastructure, including non-SWIFT Interbank systems, to complete their trade transactions. This financial trend began this year and is focused on a de-dollarization movement. Multiple countries have been working to reduce the importance and use of the US dollar in international trade. These countries include Brazil, Malaysia, China, and India. It seems their endgame is to set up alternative trade channels that would not utilize what has been the worldwide reserve currency since World War II; the US dollar.
