Markets in chaos: What's next after gold's 6 months of losses?

Kitco News

With September now behind us, gold has posted six months of consecutive losses. The last time something like that happened was in 2018, which marked the end of a bear market for gold. Could we see the end of a major selloff here?

There were critical price gains this week that could signal a significant turnaround for the precious metal. Key developments helping gold prices are the contagion risk from the volatility in the UK markets and escalating geopolitical tensions.

Here's a look at Kitco's top three stories of the week:
