Gold Hits Record $1,009, Oil $111, Euro $1.56

Gold hits new record at $1,009

Bloomberg
March 14, 2008

Gold surged to a record $1,009 an ounce in New York as the Bear Stearns Cos. bailout and a plunging dollar increased demand for the precious metal. Silver also gained.

Bear Stearns got emergency funding from JPMorgan Chase & Co. and the New York Federal Reserve. The securities firm said its cash position had “significantly deteriorated.” The dollar fell to a record against the euro and a 12-year low against the yen. Gold has jumped 19 percent this year, while the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index fell 13 percent.

“Gold’s assault on $1,000 is happening for a good reason,” said James Turk, founder of GoldMoney.com, which had $337 million in gold and silver in storage for investors at the end of February. “Gold is not only an inflation hedge, it’s a catastrophe hedge. Gold is becoming increasingly important as the credit crunch continues to spiral out of control.”

Gold futures for April delivery rose $5.70, or 0.6 percent, to $999.50 an ounce on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange. The price reached the highest ever for a most-active contract at 10:45 a.m., topping yesterday’s record of $1,001.50. The metal has tripled in the past five years.

Silver futures for May delivery climbed 23.5 cents, or 1.2 percent, to $20.655 an ounce. The price has gained 38 percent this year.

“Gold at $1,000 is a clear sign of a lack of confidence in the dollar and the Fed’s handling of monetary affairs,” said Adrian Day, president of Adrian Day Asset Management in Annapolis, Maryland.
