Gold Hedges on Concern Over Increase In Oil Prices

April 7th - For the first time since 1981, gold is seen to be taking a leap today up to $600 against concerns over oil prices. Sources at Bloomberg report that, "Gold for June delivery rose as much as $9.40, or 1.6 percent, to $601.90 an ounce on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange, surpassing $600 for the first time since Jan. 6, 1981. It was at $597.80 at 9:13 a.m. local time."

Christoph Eibl, head of commodities trading at Zug, Switzerland-based Tiberius Asset Management AG has said, "We're entering bubble territory... Prices have moved away from reality, and are no longer linked to fundamentals.''
