BANGKOK, 21 March 2011 (NNT) – Gold prices are expected to hit a record high once again following the western allies’ military operation in Libya plus the aftermath of twin disasters in Japan, according to YLG Bullion and Futures.

YLG Bullion and Futures CEO Tipa Nawawattanasup stated that the military operation of the allied forces belonging to the US, the UK and France against the Libyan troops loyal to Colonel Muammar Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi will certainly affect trade and investment in both gold and oil markets.

Ms Tipa expected that the gold price would reach a new peak of 1,450 US dollars per troy ounce after it reached a record high of 1,445 US dollars an ounce last week because investors were worrying with the situation in Libya.
