In Hyderabad Gold prices plummet reaches three-month low.
Chanda Sreenivas Rao, a member of the India Bullion and Jewellers Association explains that the demand for gold is currently experiencing a slight dip due to the ongoing Ashada masam, a time when no auspicious wedding dates are scheduled.
“The price of gold is likely to hover between Rs 58,000 and Rs 61,000,” Rao predicts.
However, any fluctuations in the global economy may cause the price to rise again.
We can anticipate an increase in sales after Dussehra as well,” he added.
Gold prices have long been influenced by a multitude of factors, including the flow of the global economy, the strength of the US dollar, and overall market sentiment.
Buyers and investors keenly watch these indicators, as they hold the key to the future direction of gold prices.
Since June 21, gold prices have remained below the Rs 60,000 per 10 grams threshold, signalling a downward trend that could provide some relief to gold enthusiasts.
After enduring months of relentless surges, this unexpected drop offers a sliver of respite for buyers seeking to make a golden investment.
Commenting on the situation, Murali Krishna, Managing Director of Manepally Jewellers, suggests that this downward trend may only be temporary.
The current decline might persist for the next month. However, after that period, prices may resume their ascent,” he said.
