Gold prices reached a 3-week high yesterday after the terrorist attack in London pushed gold to $1,251.30 per ounce – the highest it’s been since February 28.

Gold prices have risen over 4% in the last seven days as global equities slumped and risk aversion returned to markets. Gold has consolidated on the gains of the last seven sessions today and prices are marginally higher just above $1,250 per ounce.

London’s worst attack in more than a decade left five people dead, including the assailant and the police officer he stabbed, and at least 40 injured.

The history of these attacks, including those in France, Germany and Belgium last year as well those in Madrid and London more than 10 years ago, show there was little impact on economic confidence or financial markets. However, these attacks, despite being tragic were relatively small in scale and not of the magnitude of the September 11 attacks in New York.

The concern is that with economies fragile and markets looking very over valued, a spate of new terror attacks or indeed what is termed a terrorist “spectacular” akin to ‘911’ or simulated attacks across the western world as warned of by Isis recruits, could be damaging.

Markets are now also getting jittery about President Trump’s ability to push through policies that may benefit the U.S. economy. This is creating doubts on the so-called reflation trade that has seen stocks become “irrationally exuberant” in recent weeks.
