Gold hit new record highs for a third day on Thursday, as funds move in.

The spot price, which closed at $1,044 an ounce on Wednesday, rose above $1,055, helped by dollar weakness.

“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.
