What is the Gold Rate Today in Commodity Exchanges?
Gold futures have reached INR 50,589 per 10 gram today at Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX).
What Exactly are Gold Futures?
Gold can be bought and sold instantly or traded in futures. With futures, gold is traded for delivery in the future at the current gold price. The day on which the exchange happens is called the ‘Settlement Day’. A buyer has to pay the agreed price to get the delivery of gold from the seller. Usually, the agreement is made between the buyer and seller around 3 months before the date of the proposed delivery. As there remains some time for the delivery of gold whose price can fluctuate daily, both sellers and buyers may move away from the deal. If the gold prices surge, the seller might not go ahead with the deal. On the other hand, if the gold prices dip, the buyer might move away from the deal as agreed. To prevent such an incident, the concept of margin money is introduced. The margin money requirement depends much on market conditions. On the whole, it can be 2-20% of the value you transacted at. This margin money is lodged with the central clearer that prevents both the parties to walk away from the deal.
Why are Gold Prices Rising?
A lot of factors are contributing to the sustained rally in gold prices. Let’s check out such factors.
As Russia has launched a full-scale attack on Ukraine killing numerous people in the European country, western countries led by the US have imposed sanctions on the Putin-led establishment. These sanctions are expected to cause supply chain disruptions for various commodities including Gold. Russia is the world’s third largest gold producer behind Australia and China, and with anticipated disruptions, gold prices are set to notch up further in the coming days.
Stimulus Plan Announced by the European Union
The 750 billion euros recovery package announced by the European Union has also firmed up the rate of gold in the last few days. All eyes are on the US whose policymakers are also looking to devise an economic recovery plan.
Weakening Rupee Against the Dollar
India is the largest gold importer in the world by getting supplies of nearly 800-900 tonnes of yellow metal every year. So, the determination of gold rates in India is dependent on the exchange rate. If the rupee weakens against the dollar or any other global currency, the price of gold will rise in rupee terms. Rupee, which was around 45 against the dollar in 2011, has fallen to about 75 now. Such a drastic fall has led to high gold prices. To reduce the current account deficit (CAD), the government hiked the import duty on gold to 12.50% from 10% in July 2019. This hike has also resulted in increasing the gold rates in India.
Will Gold be in Demand as Prices are Rising?
The high prices of gold generally lead to low demand for the yellow metal. But since festive and marriage seasons are about to kick off in India, a lot of consumers will most likely buy gold and use them in such functions.
