Gold Price Q & A

What Impacts the Current Price of Gold per Ounce or Gram?

There are many factors that contribute to the current price of gold. The importance of each of these factors on gold prices varies depending on the current economic environment. The key factors that impact the price of Gold are:

  • Strength of the US dollar
  • U.S. interest rates
  • Current events
  • Geo-political tensions
  • Inflation expectations
  • Supply and demand
  • Price of crude oil

For a detailed explanation, read What Affects The Price of Gold."

How is the Current Price of Gold Per Ounce Calculated?

Historically, gold has been highly valued going back thousands of years. Today, there are many contributing factors to the price of gold as mentioned above. In addition, as the central banks of the US, Europe, and other places, diversify their holdings (to include more gold or less) this has an impact on the price of gold per gram, and/or the price of gold per ounce. As central banks add more Gold and move away from paper money, the price of gold goes up.

The current real-time price of gold today, traditionally, has an inverse relationship to the value of the US dollar. When the value of the US dollar is strong, gold prices go down. The strength of major economies also had an inverse relationship – at least when an economy has a significant downturn. This is due to the "safe-haven" status gold has traditionally had in the investment world. Gold prices are historically far more stable over the course of time than economies and other classes of investments.

Supply and demand, of course, also play a key role in the price of gold per gram or ounce. There is only so much gold to be mined and gold mining is not cheap. When gold demand outstrips gold supply, the price of gold goes up. The chief areas of gold demand are in gold jewelry. In 2017, 46% of demand for gold was for jewelry. There is also the use of gold in industry for such things as electronics and medical devices.

How Many Grams are in an ounce of gold?

The price for an ounce or gram of gold remains mostly the same regardless of which country you are in.

Is it true that the price of gold goes up when the stock market goes down?

Much of the time, the price of gold is negatively correlated to the stock market. More specifically, when the markets go down, gold prices often go up. That being said, there are times when the price of gold and the stock market both go up or down in unison. Overall, time has shown that gold prices are not tied to the movements of stocks and bonds and it is for this reason the gold should be an important consideration to protect the long-term value of your investment portfolio.
