Highlights

  • Gold prices jumped on Wednesday due to the weakening dollar and the aggressive approach of the Federal Reserve on inflation.
  • The ASX All Ordinaries Gold Index was up 0.64% at 6,208.80 points today.
  • The shares of major gold mining stocks Silver Lake Resources Limited, Perseus Mining Limited, and Newcrest Mining Limited closed higher today.

The Australian equity market closed lower today, as the benchmark index ended 1.65% lower at 7,064.50 points. Today's poor performance came as inflation concerns hurt investors' sentiments, with ten of the 11 sectors falling in the red territory and the Consumer Staples sector leading the losses.

Meanwhile, Gold prices rose slightly as concerns about growing inflation on economic growth led the traders to look at the yellow metal, considered a safe-haven asset. Today, the ASX All Ordinaries Gold Index was up 0.64% at 6,208.80 points.

In this article we will discuss the price performance of three-ASX listed Gold stocks, including Silver Lake Resources Limited (ASX:SLR), Perseus Mining Limited (ASX:PRU), and Newcrest Mining Limited (ASX:NCM).
