  • A stronger dollar makes gold relatively more expensive for foreign buyers, thus possibly depressing prices.

Over the past several decades, gold rates have been influenced by many different factors. Gold’s price history has seen some significant ups and downs, and dramatic price changes may be fueled by such issues as central bank buying, inflation, geopolitics, monetary policy equity markets, and more.

One of the biggest drivers of gold is currency values. Because gold is denominated in dollars, the greenback can have a significant impact on the price of gold.

A weaker dollar makes gold relatively less expensive for foreign buyers and thus may lift prices.

On the other hand, a stronger dollar makes gold relatively more expensive for foreign buyers, thus possibly depressing prices.

Fiat, or paper currencies, tend to lose value over time. If this continues to be the case, gold could potentially continue in an uptrend as investors look to it for its perceived safety and its potential as a hedge against declining currency values.

Gold has long been considered a reliable store of wealth and value, and that reputation is not likely to change any time soon. This is evidenced by the gold market, whose prices register negligible fluctuations.
