He said the prices went up by 6-7 per cent in January as investors started buying the yellow metal speculating equity markets would drop following US President Donald Trump’s inauguration speech.
“But it was all speculative buying. There was nothing significant in the speech which could jeopardize the equity market. The equity markets all over the world reacted positively following his speech,” Bamalwa said.
