With all the turmoil on the markets, investors cannot get enough of gold.
The precious metal soared to a new high again on Thursday jumping over $1822 dollars a troy ounce.
Experts say it could carry on its run for some time after the World Gold Council said demand is likely to remain strong this year - thanks to big purchases by India, China and world central banks.
