With gold surging to US$1,337 per ounce in the global market, the price of the yellow metal in the domestic market touched a high of K1,082,700 per tical (0.578 ounce or, 0.016 kilogram) on 17 June, according to the Yangon Gold Entrepreneurs Association.
Gold gained in the global market on the back of an escalating trade war between the US and China.
On 1 June, the price of gold stood at K1,048,000 per tical. Thereafter, the price has seen fluctuations, finally crossing K1,081,000 last Friday.
