Gold Hits New Record Over $1,900, Again Tops Platinum



The spot price of gold soared past the $1,900 barrier on Sept. 6, at one point hitting $1,920, a new record.

At press time, it was trading at $1,898 an ounce.

Gold had hit $1,900 briefly in late August, but for most of the month traded between $1,800 and $1,899.

Analysts attributed the metal’s continued rise to uncertainty over the world economy.

The yellow metal once again topped its traditionally more expensive “sister” metal, platinum, which at press time was trading at $1,870 an ounce.
