In the best day’s trading in eight years, a Birmingham gold dealer hit sales of almost £10m, thanks to Donald Trump’s election win.
Financial uncertainty around the world following the presidential result has seen demand for gold – seen as a safe haven investment – rocket.
Rob Halliday-Stein, from wholesaler BullionByPost in Birmingham, said: “It’s gone nuts, absolutely bonkers.”
Gold has been trading above £1,050 an ounce, above a six-month low of £821.
Mr Halliday-Stein, who set up his firm in the city in 2008, said: “Trump equals more uncertainty, and normally that means it’s a good time to get into gold.
“This is looking like it will be our best day of trading in eight years.
“We’ve done a good few million already, and it’s getting towards £10m.”
The result caused gold to initially jump 5% although it has now fallen back to more modest gains.
