Gold prices have been fluctuating recently, with some days seeing increases and others seeing decreases. Gold prices can be influenced by a variety of factors, including economic conditions, interest rates, and geopolitical events. While it’s difficult to predict exactly where gold prices will go in the future, keeping an eye on these factors can help investors make informed decisions.
Gold historically performs well when the value of the dollar is down, and some experts believe that gold prices will remain high or even increase due to the current economic uncertainty and the decreased value of the U.S. dollar.
Domestic bullion prices continued to rise, with 24-karat gold increasing by Rs3,400 to Rs239,800 a tola.
The price of 10 grams of 24-karat gold was Rs205,590 per tola, up Rs2,915 from the previous tola, according to the Karachi Sarafa Association. Similarly, the cost of a tola of 10-gram 22-karat gold increased by Rs2,672 to Rs188,457.
Due to the Pakistani rupee’s (PKR) ongoing depreciation against the US dollar, which is presently trading at PKR 305.538 per USD, gold prices have increased. When the PKR appreciates against the US dollar, the value of gold denominated in PKR increases since gold is priced in US dollars.
Despite the surge in gold prices, market analysts warn that improving economic data and the potential for another interest rate hike could cause prices to fall.
