The third largest city in Kerala, Thrissur, is the Cultural Capital. It is filled with beautiful temples, like the Vadakkunnathan Temple, the Thiruvambadi Sri Krishna Temple, and the Paramekkavu Temple. The city is also home to the largest church in India — Our Lady of Dolours Syro-Malabar Catholic Basilica, and the oldest mosque in India — Cheraman Juma Masjid.

Given Thrissur's rich religious backdrop, it is no surprise that the city attracts thousands of domestic and international tourists. Consequently, the markets for gold and silk are ever-booming in the town.

Thrissur also plays host to numerous festivals every year. Thrissur Pooram is celebrated in April-May, and Puli Kali is celebrated in August-September. During both these periods and numerous smaller festivals around the year, Thrissur observes a large influx of tourists and, thus, sees an increase in the purchase of gold articles.

Factors Affecting Gold Prices in Thrissur

  1. Economic Instability
    When there is economic turmoil, there is a significant negative impact on investment assets. The stock market fluctuates, interest rates keep changing, and uncertainty about future stability exists.
    At times like this, gold comes to the rescue. People crave the stability and security that gold offers and invest in gold. The opposite happens when there is economic stability. It gives people the safety net required to undertake slightly more risky investments.
     
  2. Demand and Supply
    During festivals, there is an increase in the demand for gold. And since supply is generally fixed for the year, the effect increases prices. The alternative happens during periods of low demand. There is excess supply, and the price falls.
  3. Inflation
    Gold is often used as a hedge or a risk management measure against investment portfolios. Inflation can be a real issue for those who hold a portion of their portfolio in cash or cash-equivalent instruments.
    The price of gold rises during inflation and offsets the loss in the cash component of the portfolio. This common practice of using gold for hedging increases gold prices.
  4. Interest Rates
    Over the past few months, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has decreased interest rates steeply. This is done to combat inflation in the economy and is beneficial in the long run. In the short term, however, it eats into the returns earned from fixed deposits (FDs).
    Thus, people buy more gold and invest less in FDs when the interest rate is low. The demand for gold increases, and the rate of gold increases as well.
  5. Value of the US Dollar
    When the value of the US dollar rises, investors flock to it, leaving behind the safety offered by gold. Rising dollar rates thus result in dips in the price of gold.
  6. Import Costs
    India's gold output is low and not enough to satisfy our never-ending consumption of gold. Now more than ever, many Indians are also starting to invest in gold. This is further increasing the country's demand for gold.
    Thus, India has to import most of its gold from other nations. Two-thirds of the total gold imported comes from South Africa. If there are hikes in import duties or additional associated costs, this will increase the gold price in Thrissur.

Gold vs. FD

Both gold and fixed deposits are popular investment instruments. However, both share some differences, too. To begin with, returns from FD are guaranteed and fixed. Market fluctuations or economic conditions don’t affect your interest income.

On the other hand, gold rates can fluctuate. This is because gold rates get decided daily. They could go up or down based on economic conditions. But per historical trends, gold rates have always gone up in the longer term.

How is the Purity of Gold Evaluated in Thrissur?

Gold is valuable only when it is pure. There are instances where customers are duped with impure gold. Hence, confirming the purity of gold is crucial.

The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is a government authority that certifies the purity of gold. According to BIS, the following factors are to be kept in mind when buying gold.

  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.

  2. Karat

    Karat is a scale to gauge gold's purity. While 24 karat gold is the purest, it is too soft for use. Hence, other metals are added and the gold available in the market is often 22 Karat.

  3. Jewellers Identification Mark

    The gold you buy should also carry an identification mark by an authorized jeweller. This helps ensure the gold is from a credible source. The mark can also be helpful in the case of disputes.
