Factors Affecting gold price in India

Gold is one of the most popular investment tools worldwide, especially in India. Like other financial assets, the price of gold also keeps fluctuating. While demand for gold is one of the key factors that determines its market price, a gamut of other factors have a role too. Find below some of the factors affecting daily gold rates.
1. Demand
Like any other commodity, demand and supply economics has a huge impact on gold prices. Increased demand with constrained or low supply usually results in a price hike. Similarly, an oversupply of gold with stagnant or weak demand can push the prices lower. In general, the demand for gold rises in India during the wedding and festive seasons.
2. Inflation
During inflation, the value of the currency goes down. In such a scenario, may prefer to hold onto money in the form of gold. This results in a spike in the prices of gold, which, in a way, acts as a hedging tool against inflationary conditions.
3. Interest rates
Gold and interest rates tend to have an inverse relationship. As the interest rates increase, people tend to sell off their gold to earn high interest. Similarly, when the interest rates decrease, people tend to buy more gold, thus increasing the demand.
4. Monsoon
A major part of gold demand in India comes from rural areas. This demand usually tends to escalate after a good monsoon, harvest, and resultant profits.
5. Government Reserves
Many governments have financial reserves that are composed primarily of gold, and India is no exception. However, if this reserve exceeds the gold sold by the government, the gold prices increase due to an insufficient supply. In India, this reserve is maintained by the Reserve Bank Of India.
6. Currency fluctuations
Gold trade in the international market transacts in US dollars. During import, when the US dollars are converted to Indian rupees, the gold price fluctuates. Usually, if the Indian rupee depreciates, gold import turns to be costlier.
7. Correlation with other assets
Gold has a low to negative correlation with all the major asset classes and thus, makes for a highly effective portfolio diversifier. As per the experts, gold protects one's portfolio from volatility because the factors that affect the returns from most asset classes do not influence the price of gold much. Some even believe that as the shares of a company fall, an inverse correlation might develop between gold and equities.
8. Geopolitical factors
During geopolitical turmoils, such as a war, the demand for gold tends to go up as a safe haven for parking funds. Thus, while a geopolitical turmoil negatively impacts the prices of most asset classes, it has a positive impact on gold prices.
9. Octroi charges and Entry tax
Octroi charge and entry tax are local taxes levied by the tax authorities when goods enter their jurisdiction (state/city). Octroi is levied when the goods enter a city, whereas Entry tax is levied when the goods enter a state. Furthermore, if your gold is valued at more than Rs. 30 lakhs, a wealth tax is levied on it.
10. Making charges
Making charges are usually levied on gold jewellery and may differ from piece-to-piece, depending on the design, as well as from jeweller-to-jeweller. read less

Impacts of QE on Gold Price Today in India

Quantitative easing is widely known as QE. It is another component that impacts gold rates in India. In quantitative easing, there is money supply in the economy for enhancing the consumption. Global central banks buy securities which lead to the extra money supply in the economy. This extra money supply finds a way into global gold investments, which pushes the prices of the metal higher.
An increase in the QE affects the gold rate today in India, which affects all the form of gold inclusive of the popular 916 gold rates in India. Off late, QE happening around the world is not that much. The US is done with its QE phase and there is some kind of easing happening in the countries such as Japan along with the Europe through the various central banks.
At present, it seems very unlikely there will be QE in that country. When the world economy will face any liquidity issues, gold rates could fall in the trade. Along with QE, there are some other components that lead to gold rallying. The withdrawal of QE will bring a fall in the gold prices. The US is now winding down its QE; there could be chances that gold rates in India could be impacted.read less
