On Wednesday morning, the price of gold jumped by more than 1% against the strengthening of the US-Iranian conflict.
A few hours after the funeral of General Qasem Soleimani, Iran struck a rocket attack on two US military bases in Iraq. Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif called the strikes in self-defense, under Article 51 of the UN Charter. Donald Trump on Twitter wrote that now the United States are assessing the damage and on Wednesday morning he will make a statement. Later, the Iranian authorities have threatened new attacks on US targets and their allies (Israel and the United Arab Emirates) in the case of retaliation and further escalation of the conflict.
