The spot price of Gold in Delhi is around Rs 46,500, which is down from Rs 47,000 from the last reporting price on Wednesday. The spot price of silver is Rs 69,500, which is also down by Rs 1000 during this period. The recent rise has been due to the sudden demand for gold and silver, Gupta said.
Price Movement Indicators
The price movement indicators remain same. The strength in US Dollar (USD) is bringing down the price of Gold and Silver in international markets. Gold and USD have an inverse relationship and when one goes down the other benefits. While the price of Gold and Silver is coming down, the strength in USD is neutralising the gains and making it expensive for other currencies.
The prices of Gold and Silver would have come down further for consumers in India if the USD had not become stronger. USD has appreciated quite strongly last week and is expected to gain this week too. This could negate the advantage of falling international price of Gold and Silver, for consumers back home in India.
Impact of US Bond Yields slowing down also helped in upward price movement for Gold and Silver.
