The Price of Gold
Welcome back to another entry of the Stewart Kuper Jewelers blog! As we start the new year, we want to focus our information on gold and diamond buying. Many people are looking to sell unwanted gold and diamond jewelry but they have a hard time knowing where to look! Well look no further, we have you covered.
What’s the Price of Gold?
The price of gold is constantly in flux. That’s why it is called the ‘spot price’ of gold; it is the price ‘on the spot.’ This is the value, per troy ounce, that the gold markets around the world are operating at. It is based on speculation and changes every few seconds!
Wait, What’s a Troy Ounce?
Good question! A Troy ounce is a type of measurement only used in precious metals. It’s a bit heavier than a standard ounce. Troy ounces are equal to about 31 grams, while a standard ounce is equivalent to about 28 grams.
Ok, So What’s the Price of Gold Right Now?
We can’t in good conscience give you the price of gold here in this blog because by the time you come to it looking for an answer it’ll be out of date.
What Affects Gold Prices? How Do They Fluctuate?
Gold, like other precious metals and markets, fluctuate throughout the day based on whatever economic events are happening. For instance, the value of the US dollar can impact gold prices. The number of buyers and sellers also has a direct influence on the spot price.
Is the Price of Gold the Same Everywhere?
Yes it is! Gold is in a global market and so the spot price keeps the value of gold uniform across the world. Otherwise, there would be the potential for an ‘arbitrage opportunity’ to crop up. An arbitrage opportunity is just a fancy economic word for someone being able to immediately make risk free profit by buying low and selling high, you don’t need to worry about that.
