Gold prices and exchange traded funds (ETFs) are adding to their gains on improved confidence about debt in the Eurozone and Washington’s moves to assist small businesses.

Gold has also been given some support by a better-than-expected fourth-quarter GDP of 5.7% and an increase to 61.5 from 58.7 on the Chicago Purchasing Managers Index in December, gold prices have been gradually improving, as stated by Proactive Investors UK.

Steven Halpern at Blogging Stocks likes the prospects for smaller gold miners. Producers are selling gold at historically low prices and major producers are struggling. For those reasons, juniors and exploration companies are in favor at the moment.
