“It’s pretty much all a fund and investor driven rally,” said Michael Kempinski, a trader at Commerzbank, told Reuters. “Those guys like to buy at the highs and have the power to push it through.”

He said gold prices could hit $1,100 an ounce as private investors moved following the increased interest.
