Precious Metal Pricing

Here at Gold Trader (www.thegoldtraderstore.com) and The Diamond Shop (www.iwantadiamond.com), we pride ourselves in taking the time with each of our customers and educating them on our process.

Do you know how gold and other precious metals pricing is determined?  It’s actually very interesting!

Precious metals actually trade freely on and off exchanges so the market prices of gold and other precious metals is determined by supply & demand along with the exchanges of these metals, tracked by the worlds markets.  The Comex exchange futures markets in New York and the largest market in London stay close in line with each other which enables other markets to determine their prices by these two large world markets.

Unlike stocks on the stock exchange that have set trading hours and closing prices, precious metals trade all around the world, 24 hours a day.  There is no official closing price.

Many people think that the price of gold is somehow tied to the success of the stock market and that if the market goes up gold goes down.  That’s not the case.  Gold prices can react to almost any international occurrence not just to the US Stock Market.  When Brexit was announced last year, gold skyrocketed in overnight trading.  Gold will typically see pronounced gains during times of fiscal uncertainty and weakness during economic booms.  The single best indicator is the US Dollar, as that trades against every currency.  So a simple (though not 100% of the time) indicator would be: dollar value up, gold value down…dollar value down, gold value up.  One thing we can say for sure is that nothing you or we do will ever impact precious metal prices.  It’s all controlled by powers much great than us!

Another thing we can say for sure is that Gold Trader will give you the best and highest prices for your gold and precious metals. To compliment that, our BUY PRICE GUARANTEE can pay you even more!  Because, we know that gold, silver and platinum prices can change every minute of every day!  With our BUY PRICE GUARANTEE, you will receive your payment the day you sell.  Then 30 days later, if the price of the precious metal you sold is higher than it was on the day you sold, we’ll send you more MONEY, as if you’d sold at the higher price.  Some restrictions do apply so make sure to ask about our BUY PRICE GUARANTEE when you visit Gold Trader!
