(Bloomberg) — Gold surged above $2,000 an ounce on growing demand for haven assets as investors weigh the geopolitical and economic fallout from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Bullion has seen its greatest weekly gain since July 2020. Bullion gains have been extended amid growing concerns about the impact of Russia’s sanctions on global growth. Price pressures are increasing at a moment when Federal Reserve prepares to increase interest rates. 

Prices rose by as much as 2 percent to $2.005.20 per ounce before closing at $2.002.40 at 09:53 Singapore time. Last week, prices rose 4.2%.
