Traders in Dubai’s famous Old Gold Souk told ArabianMoney this week that trading volumes are a little below those of a year ago, but the value of transactions is significantly higher due to the rise in the gold price.
In a gold bubble surely you would expect some increase in the volume of trading in one of the world’s oldest gold markets in the City of Gold. The souk is a magnet for buyers from around the world and particularly from Arabia.

Holy Grail ~ Hunters And Collectors
Woke up this morning,
from the strangest dream
I was in the biggest army,
The world has ever seen
We were marching as one,
on the road to the holy grail
Seeking fortune and glory
It's a short song, but it's one
Hell of a story, when you
Spend your lifetime trying to get
Your hands on the Holy Grail
Well have you heard of the Great Crusade?
We ran into millions, and nobody got paid
Yeah, we razed four corners of the globe,
For the Holy Grail.......
