Gold Prices in Australian Dollars
Gold is bought and sold all over the world, and is often transacted in currencies outside of dollars. If you live in Australia or an Australian territory, you would likely boy or sell gold coin and bullion in the local currency, the Australian dollar.
The Australian dollar can exhibit periods of relative calm and periods of heightened volatility. The currency is often referred to as the “Aussie” dollar for short, and it tends to be a favorite among currency traders. The Aussie dollar can be affected by rising and falling commodity prices, as well as local interest rates. Because the currency may at times exhibit a correlation to commodity prices, the Aussie dollar value can potentially rise and fall along with the price of gold or other commodities.
Gold Pricing in Aussie Dollars
The price of gold in Australia can be driven by numerous factors that affect gold prices all over the globe. Some of these influences on price may include:
- Central bank buying activity
- Interest rates
- Investment demand
- Risk appetite or aversion
- Inflation or deflation
The price of gold may be determined by a pricing mechanism such as the London Gold Fixing Price as well as near-month futures contracts traded on an exchange.
