In related news, YLG Bullion International advises investors to accumulate gold as prices consolidate, with expectations of a rise in the medium to long term, particularly after anticipated interest rate cuts by the Federal Reserve later this year.

Global gold prices have increased by 13.2% this year driven by high demand from central banks and institutional investors amidst tightening supply, according to YLG chief executive Pawan Nawawattanasub. Domestically, prices surged by 20.2%.

Gold prices fell from a record high of US$2,449.89 per ounce in mid-May to approximately US$2,380, which was attributed to profit-taking.

However, gold prices remain on an upward trend, supported by several factors such as concerns over global economic growth, geopolitical conflict, and accumulated purchases by central banks around the world. said Pawan, adding that limited gold supply is also driving prices over the long term.

The US Geological Survey reported that only 59,000 tonnes of gold supply remains globally, with an annual production average of 3,000 tonnes. This indicates that gold reserves may last for 19 years unless new deposits are found.
