What is QE and how does it affect Gold Prices?

Quantitative easing, or commonly known as QE, is an economic policy. It comes into action, in case other policies have run out of steam and stopped working.

  • Definition of Quantitative Easing:QE is monetary policy that promotes the idea of injecting money into an economy not by regulations, but instead via printing currency. Typically QE is regarded as a short-term solution to boost the economy after a crisis.
  • Significance of QE:Typically, Central Banks around the world uses interest rate manipulation as the primary technique to control the flow of money in an economy. However, lowering interest rates did not work during the economic downturn of 2008 and countries resorted to this method.
  • The Methodology of QE:As already mentioned, central banks inject money into an economy with this method. In case, the inflation is low, and banks are not lending, central banks then print new money and buy assets. This sudden increase in money drops interest rates and the value of a currency, which prompts banks to lend at a lower rate. Resultantly, economic activities increase.
