Quarterly Gold Rate in Gujarat from January 2020 to March 2020:
- In the first month of the year, gold prices in Gujarat recorded an overall monthly incline opening at Rs.4,023 per gram on 1 January. With the increasing tensions between the Middle East and the United States of America and speculations on the trade deal between the United States of America and China, investors shifted to the bullion market due to safe-haven appeal. The price of the metal hit its highest price on 9 January at Rs.4,205 per gram and was the lowest at the beginning of the month at Rs.4,023 per gram. However, with the first phase of the trade deal being fixed between China and the United States of America, the price of the yellow metal dipped with investors with a higher risk appetite shifting to the stock market. At the end of the month, the price of the metal was Rs.4,194 per gram on 31 January recording an overall percentage incline of 4.25.

Opening at Rs.4,194 per gram on 1 February, the price of the metal hit its lowest at Rs.4,163 per gram on 6 February and held steady on 7 February as well. Even though the price of the precious metal showed a declining trend in the first two weeks of the month, gold prices surged in the third and fourth week of February with reports flooding in about a possible pandemic originating in Wuhan, China. As the virus spread all over the country, China went into lockdown with no trade happening in the country. With this, investors shifted to the bullion market as safe-haven and the stock market suffered. The price of the metal hit its highest on 25 February at Rs.4,425 per gram with an overall percentage incline of 4.41%.
- In March, the tables turned for the traders invested in the bullion market. Recording a percentage decline of 1.44 at the end of the month, gold prices fell drastically in the global market. Opening at Rs.4,291 per gram on 1 March, the price of the metal increased in the first week and hit its highest at Rs.4,497 per gram on 7 March and held steady at the same price on 9 March as well. However, with mixed trends in the global bullion market, in the second week, the price of the metal fluctuated heavily. However, in the third week, with most countries going into lockdown to prevent the spread of the novel pandemic, COVID-19, investors chose to cash out on their investments to survive in the crisis-hit market. Due to this, the price of the metal fell drastically in the last two weeks of March. With major bullion trading centres shut to promote social distancing, the price of the metal held steady in the last week with no incline or decline.
