Gold prices in Pakistan decline following a significant surge:

Gold rates in Pakistan experienced a decrease on Saturday following a surge the previous day, resulting in the price of 24-karat gold dropping to Rs244,400 per tola, down Rs600.

Dealers noted a similar decline in the price of 10 grams of 24-karat gold, which decreased by Rs514 to Rs209,534. Additionally, the price of 10 grams of 22-karat gold also rose, reaching Rs192,072.

These fluctuations are closely tied to changes in the value of the US Dollar, highlighting the interplay between currency values and gold prices and illustrating the influence of global economic factors on local gold markets.

The price of 24-karat silver remained steady at Rs2,650. Internationally, the price of gold also decreased by $6, reaching $2,337 per ounce.

It’s crucial to note that gold rates in Pakistan can vary significantly throughout the day due to trends in the global market. The provided gold rates are obtained from reliable sources, primarily located in Karachi and Multan.

For the most accurate and up-to-date information on gold prices, individuals are encouraged to consult local gold merchants and jewellers.
