Factors Affecting Gold Prices in Howrah

Factors Affecting Gold Prices in Howrah

The following factors influence the price of gold in Howrah.

Demand and Supply 

The demand and supply of gold impact gold rates in Howrah. If people want more gold than is available, the price of gold will go up. Conversely, if there is more gold available than people want, the price will decrease.

The interest rates and gold prices in Howrah are inversely related. This means when the interest rate increases, the gold rate decreases, and when interest rates decrease, the gold rate increases. This is because when interest rates are high, people tend to invest money in other places, like bonds and bank FDs. So there is less demand for gold, and the gold rate falls. However, when interest rates are low, they see gold as a safe investment, so there is more demand for it, and the gold rate goes up.

Inflation

Most Indians like to invest in gold and utilise it as a hedge. In times of high inflation, people usually buy more gold as a kind of protection, driving up the price. Similarly, during deflation, gold prices fall.

Taxes and Import Duty

Customs duty is a tax charged on shipments containing gold when they are imported to India. As a result, when a shift in government policy leads to an increase in customs duty, the market price of gold is immediately impacted. Further, other costs, like distribution expenses, municipal taxes, and GST, also raise the gold price in Howrah.

Currency Fluctuations

Since gold is traded in dollars worldwide, currency fluctuations also impact gold’s price in Howrah. In particular, the conversion of Rupees to Dollars affects prices.
