Factors Affecting Gold Prices in Cuttack

 

  • Inflation
    During high inflation, the value of the currency falls. However, gold rates are not impacted by fluctuations in currency value, prompting people to invest in gold. This rise in demand increases gold prices.
  • Seasonal Demand
    During the festive season, there is a marked increase in the demand for gold in India. The higher the demand, the more the increase in gold prices.
  • Currency Fluctuations
    Gold is traded in US Dollars in international markets. When importing gold, we convert US Dollars to Indian Rupees. Hence, fluctuations in USD affects gold prices in India.
  • Import Duty
    India imports gold in large quantities to meet the market demand. Therefore, import duty plays a crucial role in determining gold rates. Currently, a 15% import duty, including Agriculture Infrastructure and Development Cess (AIDC), is levied on all gold purchases.
  • Market volatility
    Gold prices are impacted during times of market volatility. To put this in perspective, when the Indian stock markets collapsed in March 2020 in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, we noticed a marked increase in the price of gold.

Understanding 916 Hallmarked Gold Prices in Cuttack

 

The rate of gold depends on the quality and purity of the metal. According to the World Gold Council, 24-karat gold is considered the purest — it is 99.9% pure gold by volume.

Similarly, 22-karat gold is 91.6% pure gold by volume. When it comes to making jewellery, 22-karat is the preferred variety. The trace metals present in this alloy add to the durability and malleability of gold, allowing it to be moulded into ornaments. The 916 hallmark refers to the 91.6% purity of 22-karat gold. 

It is crucial to check the hallmark of gold jewellery before buying it. This hallmark is a certification of authenticity. The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is responsible for hallmarking gold and certifying its quality.
