The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in the early parts of the year 2020 resulted in the gold prices touching record levels. The investors had turned towards the yellow metal to preserve their capital. This naturally meant that the gold prices soared and turned out to be unaffordable for many.
However, things have changed over the last three months as the gold prices fell. This collapse in the gold prices has been attributed to the recovery in the stock markets and the speculation that a vaccine to treat the COVID-19 infection will be released soon. Also, relaxing the lockdown restriction and businesses opening up, powered the rallying in the markets.
These developments over the last three months resulted in the gold prices falling of late. Over November 2020, the price per gram of 22 carats gold fell by Rs 2,720. It opened the month at Rs 49,960 and closed the month at Rs 47,240. Over the last month, it witnessed a reduction of 5.44%.
