FXstreet.com (Córdoba) - The Australian Dollar is rising sharply against the Dollar helped by gold prices. AUD/USD is back above 0.9100 and rose to 0.9118, posting a fresh intra-day high.

Gold recently rose to $1,095.55 reaching a new historic high after finding support at $1,087.60.

The GoldCore Bullion Services Team affirms: The new record high price and the price at these levels is not extreme given that the India central bank buying shows that there is a huge appetite for gold around these price levels as the average price paid for the 200 tonnes (bought by the Reserve Bank of India) was around $1,045/oz. (…) Our start of year forecast of gold prices over $1,200/oz in 2009 looks quite possible, especially with two of gold's seasonally stronger months upon us (November and December).
