Stephen Innes, a market strategist at Axi said, "the market is very reactive to the polls and liquidity is pretty thin. We had an initial widening in Democrats' favour and that poll has narrowed, (but) it's still quite uncertain, everything's on a knife-edge."

Republicans being the majority of the senate might lead to a little decline but gold’s status remains entrenched due to the inflation narrative, Innes added.

Gold can reach $2,000 by the end of the month.
