Gold Rate determinants in Pakistan

Gold price in Pakistan is variable and change frequently depending upon several factors. In Pakistan Rupees, it is pegged to the US dollar, and therefore the gold rate depends upon the US dollar rate. Moreover, Pakistan's economy faces inflation at different intervals, resulting in lower PKR purchasing power and increasing the gold rate.

Gold Prices and Global Economy

Gold is one of the determinants of the economic growth of society. The trend of buying and selling indicates the highs and lows of current economic conditions. Gold is among the most expensive metals used in ornaments and anciently used in trade.

In the 18th to 19th-century gold was the standard economic unit of account; later, most countries abandoned the system, yet many still have gold reserves. After the invention of paper currency, it replaced gold coins and initiated banknotes and coins other than gold. Governments and monetary systems now fix the gold exchange rate against currency and few currencies with the de facto gold standard.

US Dollar and Gold Standard System

Us dollar and the gold standard have a vast history of around two centuries. The gold standard is simply a system in which a government links its paper money to a specific gold value. The state of America initiated this system known as the Breton wood system, i.e., pegged their currency to gold's typical weight. Later US-allied nations pegged their currencies to the US dollar till Richard's period. After the great depression, people started saving their money in gold form, and it causes depletion of reserved gold in the US. Nixon banned the redeeming of bullion and gold coins; however, other pegged currencies were still redeemable. At the end of 1976, Nixon completely abandoned the gold standard, and the pegged currencies acquired floating currency standard.

Future gold Rush

According to some surveys, the global demand for gold is 1,000 tonnes higher than the supply. With no new mining potential coming over, reusing most of the gold is in practice. Consequently, less collection is an added factor for changes in gold rates. Inflationary pressures in the world economy are positive operators of gold rates.

The Gold pricing and weighting System in Pakistan

In Pakistan, the standard unit of gold measurement is tola and grams. One tola is equivalent to 11.6 grams of gold. Traditionally the subunit of 1 tola is 12 Masha; however, the system is quite outdated still is in use.

The gold sold in the market is in bullion forms and jewelry yet not sold in pure form. It ranges from 18 Karate, 20 Karate, 21 Karate, 22Karate, and 24Karate gold. The percentage of alloy metal determines the Karate number. For instance, 22 K gold carries 8.33% of alloy metal and 91.67% of pure gold. Therefore the Gold rate varies with the percentage of alloy. As higher the gold percentage higher is the gold rate. It also affects the resell value of the gold jewelry. While you are purchasing gold jewelry, you pay for the whole mass according to the current gold rate. However, when you resell the used jewelry, you will redeem only the pure gold rate instead of the entire group. It's wise to invest in the purest form of gold instead of 18 K or below, which will deduct your investment in the future.

Although 24 Karat gold is available in the market yet the most traded gold range from 18K-22K, the reason is quite apparent as it is easy to engrave and mold the alloyed gold instead of pure gold that is quite soft and malleable. Therefore
