What Causes and Influences the Price Of Gold?

One of the primary causes of the price of gold in U.S. dollars is the strength of the U.S dollar versus other currencies. The EMU Euro (EUR), Japanese Yen (JPY) and the Swiss Franc (CHF) versus the US dollar are good indicators of where the price of gold is going. As the EUR, JPY and CHF strengthen versus the USD, the price of gold will go up.

The price of gold will also move up or down in the same direction as the price of silver.

Contrary to popular belief, an upset or fearful condition in the stock markets does not drive the price of gold up.
