FTSE 250 movers: Gold miners shine

15:03, 12th April 2024

London's FTSE 250 was down 0.2% at 19,739.17 in afternoon trade on Friday.
Gold miners Hochschild, Centamin and Endeavour were the top performers on the index as gold prices surged.

Russ Mould, investment director at AJ Bell, said: "Gold prices extended their recent rally as investors took the view that the global market situation warranted owning the precious metal.

"Central banks have been busy stocking up on gold and investors have followed suit, believing that the asset will come in handy if we continue to see a volatile period on the markets as the timing for interest rate cuts is pushed further back."

Diversified Energy was the top riser as Brent crude remained above $90 a barrel amid tensions in the Middle East.
