Quarterly Gold Rate in Kolhapur from January 2020 to March 2020:
- In January, the gold rate in Kolhapur had a robust incline of 4.86% as it opened at Rs.3,985 per gram and closed at Rs.4,179 per gram. It slipped to the lowest price of Rs.4,011 per gram on the second and third day of the month only to spike to the highest price of Rs.4,216 per gram by the middle of the second week. The upward trend was sparked by volatility in equity markets due to the escalating Middle Eastern tensions between the US and Iran. It was also aided by the ongoing US-China trade war and rising fears of the coronavirus epidemic that had caused Chinese stock markets to plummet. All these factors led to gold taking on a brighter shine as a safe-haven investment in uncertain times.
- In the month of February, the upward trend continued, only to be slightly lower at 4.28%, having opened at Rs.4,179 per gram and closed at Rs.4,358 per gram. The highest spike was around the end of the month at Rs.4,410 per gram with the lowest price being in the first week at Rs.4,132 per gram. The dip in prices was in response to a rising dollar that encouraged the stock markets and dimmed the shine of gold as safe-haven investment somewhat. However, with the coronavirus escaping the boundaries of China and spreading across the world, gold picked up its appeal again as a safe-haven investment by the end of the month.
- The month of March saw a downward trend for gold, with a –0.49% across the month, with the highest being Rs.4,510 per gram in the second week while opening at Rs.4,274 per gram. It declined to Rs.4,111 per gram by 20 March, picking up slightly by the end of the month to close at Rs.4,253 per gram. This was in response to the coronavirus being declared as a pandemic by the World Health Organisation. With almost every country going on a lockdown across the world, physical purchasing and trading took a hit. The fears of a global recession became all too real which led to even precious metals taking a hit and no longer being seen as a safe haven investment. With stock markets plummeting and economies crashing around the world, investors chose to liquidate their assets, including in the bullion market, choosing hard cash over precious metals in times of unprecedented economic volatality.
