Factors Affecting the Spot Price of Gold

The spot price of gold is the current market price for an ounce of gold. The price constantly changes based on various factors. Here are some of the most influential factors that affect the price of gold:

Import Duty

Less than 1% of the world's gold is produced in India. Thus, India is the second-largest importer of this precious metal, for the country to meet its huge demand. Import duties are levied on the price of gold. The current rate of import duty on gold is 15%.

Interest Rates

When interest rates on fixed deposits (FDs) are low, people tend to invest their money in gold, because it is known to provide stable returns. However, when interest rates rise, investors prefer parking their money in FDs to yield higher returns.

Supply and Demand

As with any commodity, the laws of supply and demand play a significant role in setting gold prices. If the demand is high, the prices of gold tend to soar. This is especially witnessed during the wedding seasons of October to February and festivals like Dussehra and Diwali.

Inflation

The value of the currency declines when inflation rates increase. Most investing options fall short of producing returns that outpace inflation. Thus, the majority of individuals begin investing in gold. Due to its immunity to changes in currency value, gold serves as the ideal hedge even when high rates of inflation persist for an extended period of time.

Identifying BIS Hallmarked Jewellery

The precise assessment and official documentation of the proportionate precious metal content is known as hallmarking. The purity or fineness of precious metal items is guaranteed by hallmarks, which are statutory marks used in many nations. The public's protection from adulteration and manufacturers' obligation to uphold legal standards of fineness are the major goals of the hallmarking scheme. Two precious metals, namely gold and silver, have currently been included in the scope of hallmarking in India.

The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is responsible for authenticating and hallmarking gold jewellery in India. Before purchasing a gold item, you should look for the following marks -

  • BIS Mark or Logo
  • Year of Production
  • Identification Number or Mark of the Jeweller
  • Purity or Fineness Number
