How is the gold spot price calculated?

If you want to buy gold, it is interesting to know how the gold market works. The price of gold is constantly changing and many factors influence this fluctuation. Supply and demand, current events or even market speculation all have an impact on how the price of gold is determined.

The “spot” price is the cash price equivalent of gold at which professionals trade gold on stock exchanges. Gold and other precious metals (silver, palladium and platinum) are bought and sold 24 hours a day on the New York (COMEX + NYMEX + CBOT + CME), London (LBMA), Sydney, Hong Kong and Zurich stock exchanges. These stock exchanges influence and determine the spot price of gold.

Gold price history

Since the end of the gold standard in 1971 and the end of the convertibility of the US dollar into gold, the price of the yellow metal has continued to rise. Since then, investors from all over the world have been buying gold for its safe haven status and as a hedge against risk. The gold price is very closely followed.

In the 1970s, the oil shocks had a major impact on the price of gold: 60% in 1974 and even a 293% increase between 1979 and the beginning of 1980. Geopolitical tensions and conflicts also influenced its price. But in the 1980s and 1990s, gold was abandoned by investors. Gold rebounded again in 2001 following the World Trade Center attacks and in 2008 with the subprime crisis. Thus, the price of gold over 20 years rose from 303 euros per ounce in January 2000 to 1553 euros in January 2020!

In 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic has a strong impact on the price. In March, gold underwent a sharp correction following massive ETF sales on the stock markets and regained its role as a safe haven from April onwards. In the following months, the price of gold broke several records, reaching an all-time high of $2089 per ounce on 7 August 2020.

What is the gold price in the United Kingdom?

In the United Kingdom, the price of gold is determined on the basis of LBMA Gold Price, a price administered by the ICE Benchmark Administration Ltd., an independent third party provider that provides the price platform, methodology as well as the overall administration and governance for the LBMA Gold Price. The price is set in US dollars. Sterling and euro prices are available but these are indicative prices for settlement purposes only. Gold prices are set twice a day, at 10:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. This Gold Price is established on the basis of electronic auctions conducted on the ICE Trading Platform auctions, the final prices of which are then published as the LBMA Gold Price.
