Factors That Impact Gold Prices in Panaji

Detailed here are some of the most crucial factors that impact gold prices in Panaji:

Inflation

Inflation is the rise in the cost of goods and services. It can significantly increase gold prices. The price of gold typically changes in direct proportion to inflation. This means that higher inflation causes gold prices to rise since the value of money decreases. 

Rate of Interest

Under normal circumstances, interest rates and gold prices have historically had an inverse relationship. Investors sell gold when interest rates rise to make more money. However, as the interest rate falls, more people choose to purchase gold. This drives up both its demand and price.

The Market for Indian Jewellery

Panaji's households have historically seen gold as a strategic asset. Gold has a unique position in Panaji. It is used during elaborate wedding ceremonies and as jewellery during significant festivals like Diwali. As a result of the increased consumer demand, gold prices rise throughout the wedding and festival seasons.

Protection Against Uncertainty

When the market is volatile, people frequently choose to invest in or purchase gold as a commodity. The value of gold is consistent over a long period. This makes it a better option than other assets.

Geopolitical Condition

Investors view gold as a haven during political unpredictability or geopolitical unrest. This increases demand and leads to a price rise. Gold demand in Panaji tends to increase during such crises, making it a crisis commodity for parking funds. 

Exchange Rate Impact on Gold

Given that the vast bulk of physical gold is imported, the price of gold in rupees will rise as the rupee depreciates versus the dollar. Therefore, a falling rupee could reduce India's appetite for gold.

How is the purity of gold assessed in Panaji?

The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), a government agency, verifies the purity of gold. According to BIS, the following aspects should be considered by buyers of gold.

BIS Label

Jewellery that has been BIS hallmarked will bear the BIS logo. This mark is mandatory as BIS is the only recognized authority in India for gold certification.

Karat

The purity of gold is measured using the karat scale. Despite being the purest, 24-carat gold is too delicate to be used. As a result, more metals are added, and the market's gold is frequently 22 Karat.

Mark for Jewellers' Identification

Additionally, the gold you purchase needs an identity mark made by a licenced jeweller. This makes it easier to verify the gold's legitimacy. In the event of a dispute, the mark can come handy to identify the seller.

How is the Purity of Gold Evaluated in Panaji?

  1. BIS Mark

    Jewellery hallmarked by BIS will have a BIS logo on it. Remember that since BIS is the only authorized laboratory in India for gold certification.
