Interactive gold price chart

For demand and supply data, please see Gold Demand Trends.

Notes

The gold prices used in this interactive chart are supplied by BullionDesk. This price is quoted in US dollars. Where the gold price is presented in currencies other than the US dollar, it is converted into the local currency unit using the foreign exchange rate at the time (or as close to as possible). For example, the London PM fix on 30th October 2013 was USD 1,354.75 and the price for one USD was EUR 0.726. The gold price in euro (EUR) would therefore be calculated as €984.10.1 Like all prices, the gold price reflects not only the inherent value of gold, but also the relative strength of the currency in which it is quoted. For example, the dollar price of gold may increase more in percentage terms than the sterling price of gold, to the extent that the change in price is a reflection of dollar weakness (in this case, against the euro) rather than an intrinsic change in gold market fundamentals. For this reason, our Investment Gold market statistics contain charts showing an index of the gold price in US dollars and local currency units as well as the relevant US dollar / local currency unit exchange rate for countries other than the United States. Public holidays in different countries do not always coincide and therefore the time series that are downloaded from our data providers may contain missing values for trading days in other countries. The approach taken in this regard is to replace the missing value with the most recent value. 1 You may not be able to replicate this calculation due to rounding.
