Gold prices hit a new record high

Gold prices hit a new record level when the $ 1500 an ounce mark was reached for the first time in the history of the precious metal .
The rise comes after the credit rating agency Standard & Poor's for the first time reduced the long-term debt rating of the United States from stable to negative, and as the depreciation of the dollar against major currencies continues.
And comes amid growing fears about the worsening U.S. fiscal deficit, and the crisis of European sovereign debt.
One of the issues that have contributed to the rising prices of the yellow metal in recent months, are the middle east revolts erupted, which caused a large rise in prices of raw materials in general, including crude oil and grain, which led to raise fears about inflation and rising prices.
