Gold Price In Kanpur
India is one of the largest consumers of gold in the world. It is, in fact, beaten only by China and that too by not a very huge margin. In a country that consumes so much gold, it is natural that the effects of the change in the rates of gold will be more visible. The prices of gold have been going through a low period since 2015 but they seem to be on the rise now. The year 2016 began with a low price for both 24 and 22 karat gold but it has been recovering. One of the key factors that can effect such fluctuations can be the US dollar itself. Since gold is traded in USD, if the dollar gets strong, the price of gold can fall since the demand will fall owing to the cost of the dollar.

Other industrial establishment that also find a home in the city include industries like leather production, plastics, detergents, food processing, etc. Gold jewellery is one of the major productions in the city and it is also quite well known for the typical style of the jewellery that is produced here.
