Add that with the beginning of this year, prices for the precious metal fell almost 30 percent , as rising risk appetite and the prospect of global economic recovery have tarnished its appeal. Gold is generally seen as a hedge against inflation, which has ceased to be the center of attention for investors at the moment.
