How is the price of gold determined?

As one of the most bartered assets worldwide, gold finds its place in innumerable futures markets. A few of the most renowned markets across the world include the New York, Chicago, Hong Kong, Zurich, and London Mercantile Exchanges.

Metals are exchanged in COMEX, an essential business sector for a number of precious metals, including but not limited to gold, silver, copper, and platinum. Short for Commodity Exchange Inc., COMEX merged with the York Mercantile Exchange in the early 20th century. Upon the merger, it became the foremost division responsible for the exchange of precious metals. This includes the determination of the spot price of gold.

In the case of spot price determination, calculations largely involve the front-month futures contract that is traded on the COMEX. “Front-month” relates to futures trading in that it is the contract month whose expiry date is closest to the current date, both of which are usually around the same time.

Gold unit conversion:

31.1035 grams of 24-carat pure gold = 1 troy ounce,
1 kilogram of 24-carat pure gold = 32.15 troy ounces.

The gold spot price per ounce can vary according to the following factors:

  • Currency and Economic Strength: The correlation between the dollar and the price of gold is negative. This is why times of economic struggle lead to an increase in the price of gold. This is largely because gold is usually considered a stable investment as opposed to other forms of investment.
  • Social, Economic, or Political events: Uncertain environments usually increase the price of gold since it is considered a safe haven for investments. In fact, geopolitical uncertainty, economic uncertainty, and wars have a positive correlation with the price of gold.
  • Buying power: In some cases, high transaction volumes can also directly influence the spot price of gold on the whole. This usually occurs when gold is purchased in bulk by large entities, including whole countries, multinational corporations, or multibillionaires.
  • Market speculation: Because of the volatility of gold prices, investors may bet on the prices of gold, which leads to fluctuations in the spot price.

Why should one invest in gold?

Gold has immense historical, economic, and cultural significance. Owing to its rarity, gold is considered one of the most valuable precious metals. Owned by wealthy families throughout centuries of modern human history, gold today is a popular investment because of its stability in a relatively volatile market. Gold is an excellent way to hedge against the rapidly changing futures market, inflation, and also a way to diversify one’s existing Precious Metals Investment Retirement Accounts. The form in which gold is traded is of significance as well. Physical bullion bars and coins are today the most preferred forms of gold in the market. In addition to these modes, paper certificates are also used; but due to their lack of physical ownership, they are not as frequently used. Unlike bars or coins, paper certificates are statements that signify the ownership of a determined amount of gold that is stored securely.

Owing to its stability in spite of a volatile currency, gold is an excellent and reliable commodity to invest in and is an excellent way to diversify one’s investment portfolio.

Gold of sizes anywhere between 1g and 400 oz can be purchased worldwide. Bullion Hunter carries a broad range of gold products to suit all kinds of buyers; from dedicated investors to collectors.

Are gold spot prices the same everywhere?

Gold spot prices do not vary with geography. It is because of this invariability that an arbitrage-free gold market can exist.

What is the gold/silver ratio?

Quite simply, the gold/silver ratio is the buying power for gold that is obtained from the ownership of silver. Mathematically, it is the number of ounces of silver required to buy one ounce of gold. This ratio is derived based on a number of variables, including changing prices of both metals over a period of time. This ratio helps investors understand the worth of silver relative to gold, and to highlight overpricing trends of either commodity. Thus, the gold/silver ratio can directly impact an investor’s knowledge of whether buying or selling both commodities is favorable to the investor at a given point of time.

What are bid and ask prices?

When buying gold from a dealer, the price paid by the buyer is known as the ‘ask’ price, while those who sell their previously purchased gold to a dealer pay the ‘bid’ price. The difference between both prices is called the spread, or the bid-ask spread.

Why can't i buy at the gold spot price?

When a gold commodity is sold, the manufacturer usually marks up the price before selling it to a dealer. In turn, before selling the commodity, a dealer then accommodates distribution costs and a minimal dealer fee by marking up the price further. It is at this new marked up price that the commodity is sold to investors and buyers. Bullion Hunter provides a number of investment forms for gold, the lowest markups on gold spot prices, and free shipping.

What is the difference between an ounce and a troy ounce?

The United States uses the troy ounce standard of measurement to measure gold. Created by England in the 15th century, this standard has been in use since 1828 for standard coinage. The difference between an ounce and a troy ounce is only ~3 grams. While an ounce is around 28.349 grams, a troy ounce is about 31.103 grams.

Why does the price of gold change so frequently?

While the rate of gold is a relatively stable value, it is still influenced by a number of factors, such as fluctuations in current events, currency values, supply and demand, buying power, and market speculation.
