News About Gold rate in Raipur
Gold Growth is Stunted
Gold rates fell by a slight margin last week as investors cashed in their gains after the metal achieved its highest growth in the past 30 years. But fears of the investors have not been allayed as the US employment increased and naturally the Federal Reserve would deem it fit to increase the tax on the yellow metal.
Prices went up by 16 percent in March as people thought a tax hike wouldn’t be done after all. China and India have been more conservative about buying more gold due to the concerns that have been floating around since the last year. In addition to that, the gold tax imposed in India has made matters even more dire.
4th April 2016
Gold Rates Increase Yet Again
Since Wednesday, there has been an increase noted in the rates of gold. While in India the prices increased by INR 400 per troy ounce, they increased by 18 dollars in the international market.
Per troy ounce gold now has a price of INR 49550 and 10 grams of gold is right now at INR 42471.
31st March 2016
Gold to Fall Even More in the Near Future
Gold prices have been on a decline since the comments from US Federal Reserve officials. The comments apparently hinted that gold will have a lesser value as tax rates are hiked on the yellow metal for at least twice this year. That in turn has strengthened the dollar and made commercial gold more accessible to people who are fans of the yellow metal.
24 carat gold in Dubai retailed at 147.25 dirhams on Sunday while 22k, 21k and 18k variants of the metal were on the market at 138.50 dirhams, 132 dirhams and 113.25 dirhams respectively. Spot gold on Thursday had a 0.6 percent decline. Seeing the constant underperformance of the metal, more than half of the retails opine that gold still has its worse days ahead.
