Gold Rate in BangaloreWhy to Buy Gold on Dhanteras
Gold is a very popular commodity in Bangalore, and in India in general. Gold rates in Bangalore are decided by international trends. Gold prices are highly dynamic and are affected by a wide range of factors, from strength of the US Dollar to seasonal demand in the country. Gold is purchased in Bangalore primarily as jewelry and ornaments, following the trend of most of the country when it comes to gold usage.
Gold is also traded as a commodity in exchanges such as Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX), National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange (NCDEX) and National Spot Exchange (NSEL). The contracts are available both as spot contracts where gold can be bought and delivered right away, and futures contracts wherein gold is bought and sold at a later date.
Indians have a history of banking on gold more than the actual banks. Gold therefore also acts as an investment portfolio for consumers in Bangalore looking at stable and long term returns from the metal. There are many large and small gold dealers in Bangalore that are exclusively into precious metals and form the backbone of the local gold industry.

Ashada Ruined for Bengalureans Courtesy of Brexit
Ashada – a month-long festival is upon us, but Bengalureans may have to think twice before making any investments in gold or silver. The price of gold is forecast to exceed Rs.33,000 per 10 grams while the price of silver may cross Rs.50,000 per kilogram in the coming weeks. Karnataka is home to over 10,000 jewellery stores, and 40% of them are located in Bengaluru.
Ashada Masa is viewed upon as an auspicious month so far as house-warming and wedding ceremonies are concerned. As a result, many commodities including precious metals are sold at discounted prices. However, this year is expected to be different as the investment in gold and silver by individuals from the UK has increased after Brexit. An increase in the number of investors means that the price of metals have increased around the world, thus making Bengalureans cautious about investing in gold or silver.

Gold Rate Declines Due to Strong U.S. Job Market Data
As strong data emerged from the U.S. jobs market, the gold price recorded a loss in early trading. Gold was trading at $1,358.83 an ounce on 11th July, 2016, a decrease of $11.17 on the previous day’s trading.
The data released from the U.S. showed that over 287,000 new jobs were created in the non-farm sector in June, surpassing expectations and giving a boost to the economy.
While analysts expected data to be better than May’s poor performance, the numbers were higher than all predictions and have served to bolster the view that the U.S. market is recovering.
However, the good performance is still not seen as enough to result in an interest rate hike by the U.S. Federal Reserve, with many industry watchers predicting the current rates will remain unchanged till the next year at least.

What Has Gold Been Up To Since The Brexit Vote?
When Britain announced its intention to leave the European Union, the prices of gold began to rise. The prices have already reached the $1,300 per ounce mark and are expected to rise further to possibly beat their earlier high of $1,400 per ounce. Though the rise in the price did trigger a trend of booking profits and the prices of gold came down, the drop was not more than about 4%. Experts are now fearing that Britain’s exit will trigger an economic crisis in the EU which has pulled more investors to gold as they see it as a safe haven investment. It was expected that the US Federal Reserve will be increasing their interest rates at least twice this year after its last hike but now the odds say that instead of increasing the rates, they might actually cut the interest rates. In India, gold is currently being sold at a discount of about 2.5% since the precious metal is facing some pressure as a result of low demands and increasing prices. The price of gold in India are at their highest in 2 years and it is estimated that it might go as high as Rs 34,000 per 10 grams in the coming months.
