More About Live Gold Prices
How Is The Live Price of Gold Determined?
The live price of gold (aka the “Spot Price”) changes by the second. Markets around the world are buying, selling and trading gold 24 hours a day. The reason the live price of gold changes is based on several factors that can be fairly unpredictable. The Federal Reserve raising or lowering interest rates, job and wage reports, inflation or a failing U.S. dollar; all of these factors will send the price of gold up or down within minutes. Knowing what factors determine the changes in the live price of gold allow investors to quickly make informed decisions.
Why Should I Pay Attention to the Live Price of Gold?
Paying attention to the live price of gold allows an investor to snatch up opportunity. Historically, the price of gold generally remains more stable over time than other investments and the economy in general. Gold is considered to be a safe haven and a good long term option. But gold is high when the dollar is low and vice versa. Watching the live price of gold can be crucial for decision making whether buying or selling.
