Delhi, the national capital, is also one of the largest consumers of gold in the country. All throughout the history of Delhi, gold has been a stable commodity used as jewelries, minted as coins, and also sold as pure gold bars and other forms. Gold rates in Delhi are influenced by various factors that have global implications. The city currently has a large buyer base for gold and related products, with consumers mostly opting for physical gold followed by trading exchanges.
Other than physical gold, consumers can also opt for gold as a commodity, which is traded in various commodity exchanges such as National Spot Exchange (NSEL), National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange (NCDEX) and Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX). The exchanges offer gold as spot contracts where you can buy gold at the spot and get it delivered at the earliest, and also as futures contract, where gold is purchased and sold at a later date, albeit on current prices.

Gold rates around the world record a 4-year high
Nearly a decade after the world was hit by 2008 crisis, things seem to have turned around lately. According to some reports published by major media houses from around the world, gold rates have hit a high for the first time in 4 years.
This happened in 2016, where global demand saw an increase of 2% to hit 4,309 tonnes, the highest level since 2013.
The news was also confirmed by World Gold Council (WGC), which released its latest Gold Demand Trends Report on February 3rd. Known as the global authority on gold, the council stated that 2016 was a year of major political upheaval which brought about a massive overflow of new investors into gold.
Some of the major catalytic factors, the council said, were Brexit, China’s economic slowdown, and the US Presidential Elections among others, all of which boosted investor sentiment towards gold.
The report also suggested that, gold prices fell in India and China by 21% and 7% respectively despite growing demands during the fourth quarter of 2016.
Brexit fears which began in June 2016, on the other hand, brought about a two-year high in gold rates to $1,370 and later increased during November to $1,337.40 when Donald Trump emerged victorious in US elections.

Gold Prices Surge On Budget Day
The price of gold rose on 1st February as jewellers increased purchases, which pushed prices higher. Gold traded at Rs.29,750 for 10 grams on 1st February, 2017, an increase of Rs.200 from the rate on 31st January, 2017.
Gold prices have been rising since 28th January, 2017, and have gained Rs.600 since that day. The rise in price has been attributed to high demand due to the ongoing wedding season as well as higher demand due to market fluctuations abroad.
In Delhi, 99.5 purity gold traded at Rs.29,750 for 10 grams on 1st February, 2017. 99.9 purity gold traded at Rs.29,600 for 10 grams on the same day.
Silver prices also rose, with the metal registering an increase of Rs.300, trading at Rs.42,200 per kg on 1st February, 2017.

Import duty being reduced on Gold
In order to stop the grey market and give boost to the organised players, GJEPC (Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council) wishes Arun Jaitley to bring down gold’s import duty to 5% approximately. They want this to happen in the next budget release.
The export of jewellery has been hampered as the import duty was as high as 10%. This can also increase the chances of gold trafficking. Other than decreasing the import duty, Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council also wants the CBDT (Central Board of Direct Taxes) to offer relief to the gold trade for non-maintenance of the transfer pricing records.
12th January 2017
Gold Prices Increase Again
Due to demonetization, there was no gold for demand. Now, because of the wedding season demand for gold has increased in the market. So, gold prices have increased again and hit a 1 month high. The price for every 10 grams of 24 carats gold is now Rs.28,800 as opposed to Rs.27,000 a month back.
10th January 2017
Poor demand leads to drop in gold rates
The price of gold fell to an 11 month low on the back of reduced demand from jewellers. Prices fell by Rs.250 to end the day at Rs.27,750 for 10 grams. The government’s decision to scrap certain currency notes has resulted in a reduced demand for gold, resulting in poor sales across the country. Both investors and individuals looking to purchase jewellery are playing it safe, with lack of physical money impacting sales. The rates were also hit by the performance of the US Dollar in the global market. Not only bullion rates, the price of Gold Futures for February also dropped substantially, trading at Rs.26,961 on the exchange.
This move follows a mixed year for gold, which saw prices shoot up by over 20% in August, when gold traded at Rs.31,000 for 10 grams. Prices have dropped by around 9% in the last 4 months, with a further drop in rates expected in the near future.

Gold prices drop below Rs.29,000
Gold prices fell by more than 8% in November due to rise in dollar value and the US treasury yields after Donald Trump was elected to the US presidency. Demonetisation of high value notes is also a significant reason for the second straight slump in gold prices. Low demand in the domestic spot market has caused gold prices to drop below Rs.29,000 by Rs.250 to an over 6-month low of Rs.28,800 per 10 gm.
In New Delhi, 99.9% and 99.5% purity gold dropped by Rs.250 each to Rs.28,800 and Rs.28,650 per 10 gm, respectively. Subsequently, silver ready dropped by Rs.100 to Rs.41,100 per kg whereas weekly-based delivery increased by Rs.835 to Rs.41,200.

Gold bounces back on uncertainty in Trump policy
Spot gold was recorded at 0.29% higher at $1,223.41 an ounce after falling to its lowest in the beginning of the week to $1,211.08 an ounce. U.S. gold futures reached 0.2% higher at $1,224.50. The losing streak of gold came to an end owing to the uncertainty in Donald Trump’s economic policies.

It is observed that investors invest in safe-haven assets such as gold, during times of uncertain political and economic scenarios.
Among other metals, Silver went up by 0.7% to record at $16.99 an ounce after falling to its lowest at $16.61 in the previous session in June. Platinum was recorded at $934.20, going up by 0.4%, while Palladium rose 1.6% to record $709.20.
