The gold price in Pakistan and the international market experienced a notable increase at the beginning of the week on Monday.
Gold Price Surge: Pakistan Market
In the Pakistan market, the price of 24-carat gold witnessed an upsurge of Rs800 per tola and Rs685 per 10 grams, settling at Rs215,300 and Rs184,585, respectively. These figures are based on the data released by the All-Pakistan Sarafa Gems and Jewellers Association (APSGJA). The recent rise in gold prices can be attributed to the prevailing political and economic uncertainty, as well as high inflation in the country. During such uncertain times, individuals tend to view gold as a safe investment and a hedge against instability.
International Market: Gold Price Update
Simultaneously, the price of gold in the international market also saw an increase of $11 per ounce, reaching a settlement at $1,931. This surge indicates a positive trend for the yellow metal on a global scale.
Gold Price Fluctuations in Pakistan
Over the course of the previous week, the price of gold experienced a downward slide for seven consecutive sessions, resulting in a cumulative decrease of Rs8,900 per tola. This decline in price can be attributed to various factors, including market dynamics and investor sentiment.
Silver Price Update
In addition to gold, the price of silver also witnessed nominal gains. As per the data shared by the association, silver prices increased by Rs50 per tola and Rs48.27 per 10 grams, settling at Rs2,550 and Rs2,186.21, respectively.
Pakistani Gold Market: Competitive Pricing
The data released by the association further reveals an interesting aspect of the Pakistani gold market. Currently, the price of gold in Pakistan is Rs3,000 per tola cheaper compared to the Dubai market. This indicates that the Pakistani gold market offers a more cost-effective option for buyers, positioning it favorably against the global market.
In conclusion, the gold price in Pakistan experienced a significant increase at the start of the week, driven by multiple factors such as political and economic uncertainty, high inflation, and market dynamics. Additionally, the silver price also observed slight gains. Moreover, the Pakistani gold market showcases a competitive edge by offering more affordable prices compared to the global market.
