Gold is traded in forms of gold, coins and bars and acts as a perfect hedge against inflation. In India, the prices are dependent on factors like currency, global demand, interest rates and government policies. If the rupee slides against the US dollar in India, gold will become expensive.

The gold price is also dependent on international factors like global economic growth, dollar strength against other currencies etc. Another important factor is the demand for the precious metal. If the demand for gold is not robust, the prices will fall. Another important factor affecting gold price is the interest rate. For example, gold prices fall when the interest rates in countries like US surge. The opposite happens when the interest rates drop.

Silver prices

In India, the price of silver is determined by factors like gold rates, industrial demand, bulk purchases, inflation etc. If the price of gold increases, the silver price will also increase.

According to website Goodreturns, the price of one gram of silver stood at 74.70. In Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata, the price of 10 grams of silver was at 747. In Chennai and Bengaluru, 10 grams of silver cost 782 and 732.50 respectively.
