How is Gold’s purity determined?

Gold is one of the most valuable metals known to humankind, and it can be used for multiple purposes. Besides, making jewellery, gold is also commonly used to avail funds during a financial crunch.

Thus, it is vital to measure the purity of gold to make the most of its equity. Following are some of the ways.

  • Karat System

It constitutes one of the most common ways to determine the quality and purity of gold. Denoted by “K”, this measurement system depends on a scale that ranges from 0 to 24. For instance, a god article of 1 Karat means that that particular gold item consists of 1 part of gold and 23 parts of other metals or alloys. It also means, the closer to 24K, the purer the gold.

  • Hallmarking

Most gold articles, including jewellery, come with an inscription called “hallmark” that carries the symbol of gold purity, its fineness, date of manufacturing, etc. Most countries, including India, have mandated gold jewellers to carry the BIS hallmark.

  • Other Methods

Besides these, most traders use conventional acid test or use an electronic gold tester to determine gold purity accurately.

Irrespective of the method, assessing gold purity is essential for both buyers and traders.

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.

The connection between QE and Gold is inversely proportional. It means, with the implementation of quantitative easing, the price of gold drops and vice versa. Thus, conservative investors, who believe gold is the future, advises investing more in gold, instead of other modes.
