A fear that Britain might choose to leave the European Union has driven the price of gold in Dubai down. While the price of 24 karat gold had been trading at Dh 157.25 per gram, it fell to Dh 153.25 yesterday. Even the price of 22 karat gold came down to about Dh 144 while the price 21 karat gold came down to Dh 137.25 and the price of 18 karat gold came down to Dh 117.75 per gram. The Asian markets saw a 2% drop in the price of gold where the metal had been gaining over the last few days. The fall in the price is a result of a fear about Britain's exit from the EU which could leave the EU in recession and be an economic downturn for Britain as well. Industry experts are saying that should Britain exit the EU, the price of gold might reach its old 2014 high of $1,400 per ounce and that the dollar might gain some strength too.
