What are the Factors that Influence Gold rate in Gurgaon?
- Demand and Supply: Demand and supply is the basic factor that influences gold prices in Gurgaon. When the supply of gold suddenly increases for instance during the wedding or festive season, the gold rates increases. But the demand is not the only reason for the upsurge in the gold rates; demand is also a notable reason for the increase in the gold rate in India. With the constant demand if the supply dips in the market, then the gold rates in Delhi or in fact anywhere in India will increase.
- Central Bank Policies: Every country has a central bank which keeps gold reserves to ensure deficit financing does not decrease the value of currency so much that hyperinflation occurs. If the reserves are running low, central banks can drive the rates up by placing bulk purchase orders from various sources across the globe. On the other hand, the gold rate tomorrow might be less than today’s gold rate because a central bank liquidated some of the gold from its gold reserves and increased its availability in the market.
- Quantitative Easing (QE) Initiatives: The strategy of Quantitative Easing aims to make sure that more money is introduced in the market so that banks give loans more readily to their customers to encourage spending. This is especially true here in India, where RBI has been cutting Repo and other rates regularly to drive economic growth of the country. But this has one bad effect on fixed-rate investments such as fixed deposits as their returns fall, which forces many investors to turn to gold to hedge their interests. Such increase in demand is bound to drive gold rate in Delhi, Mumbai or any other city in the country up.
- Currency Movement: US Dollar is by far the single major currency with which various smaller economies either link their own currency or adopt it as their own. Thus, if the value of US dollar falls, panic starts to set in with investors which force them to buy physical gold and other investment options such as Gold ETFs and Sovereign Gold Bond to safeguards their money.
- Inflationary Trends: Inflation in moderation is a sign of affluence. But in case of hyperinflation, investors consider gold investments safer than currency notes. Therefore, during high inflation, gold rate in Bangalore and other cities in India also increases as at such time investors flock towards the glittering yellow metal.
- Possibility of a Global Crisis: At the time of global crises or war situations, investors lose their trust in their governments and economy and therefore head to invest in gold so that they don’t suffer great losses. It is quite obvious that as more and more investors head for gold, the demand increases which subsequently leads to increase In its price.
