Pakistan’s Gold Price Drops To Rs2,800 Per Tola

Taking full advantage of a weak rupee and elusive dollar, the gold surge sputtered out on Monday, in line with market speculation that the yellow metal was about to experience a significant correcting hiccup.

In the previous three trading sessions, the valuable commodity increased by Rs7,300 per tola. According to information made public by the All-Pakistan Sarafa Gems and Jewellers Association (APSGJA), the price of gold fell by Rs 2,800 per tola and Rs 2,401 per 10 kilos, respectively, to settle at Rs 184,500 and Rs 158,179.

The precious metal had corrections during the first three sessions of last week’s gold price volatility, but it later regained its luster. The price increased by Rs2,000 over the turbulent seven-day period that ended on January 14.

In Pakistan, the price of gold has been “overcast” by Rs2,000 a tola when compared to pricing in Dubai, according to the association. This indicates that the Pakistani gold market is currently more expensive than the global market.

In the current market, gold investors make up the majority of buyers, it should be highlighted. When inflation was rampant, they used to save their money in US dollars to protect themselves from the effects of rupee devaluation.

The shortage of the dollar in the open market, in the opinion of goldsmiths, caused investors to begin shifting their investments to the bullion market. As opposed to Rs228 in the interbank market, illicit traders were charging Rs280–290 in the black market for each dollar.

During this time, domestic silver prices dropped to Rs 2,080 and Rs 1,800.41 per tola and Rs 17,15 per 10 grams, respectively.

Despite anticipation that the US Federal Reserve will be less aggressive in raising interest rates, bullion prices remained well above $1,900 per ounce even though gold prices fell from an almost eight-month high on the international market on Monday as the dollar strengthened. After falling $5, the price stabilized at Rs 1,915 for an ounce.
