The price of gold hit a new record yesterday, reaching $1,607 per ounce as concerns that the US debt crisis is no nearer being resolved and fears that the eurozone debt crisis will spread helped to drive up the price.

Gold has increased in value for each of the last 11 days, a new record as investors search for a safe investment during a period of prolonged global economic uncertainty. Gold was valued at £1,000 an ounce for the first time ever.

The eurozone crisis and concerns that the debt crisis in the US could lead to a default has increased the appeal of gold and other havens for investors such as silver and currency vehicles such as Swiss francs. Silver reached $40 an ounce, its best price for two months.

Many investors expect gold to increase still further but by how much depends on certain factors.
