Gold held steady at $1,325.20 per ounce on Wednesday, according to Reuters, near Tuesday’s three-month high of $1,332.10. Investors are finding the metal particularly appealing as tensions in Iraq and Ukraine continue.

In Iraq, the first session of the country’s new parliament failed to name a replacement prime minister, decreasing hopes the government could unify and prevent the country’s collapse. Ukrainian forces attacked pro-Russian separatist bases in the eastern part of the country on Tuesday with air and artillery strikes after President Petro Poroshenko announced he would rid Ukraine of “parasites.”
