After the demand for Gold has increased in the global market, price of the metal has shot up on Thursday, June 16, at the Multi Commodity Exchange. This is the first time in two years that the price of gold has gone past the Rs 30,000 ($444.84) mark; shooting up from Rs 408. Although this is the first time in two years we are seeing gold prices like this, gold prices have gone up 24% since January, said the Scroll.in report.

According to the Scroll.in report, analysts believe that risk-taking investors have decided to stick with the solid asset of gold, creating an inflation of prices. A potential factor for a further rise in prices lies in the members of the European Union. Experts have predicted that if the UK leaves the EU then gold prices could shoot up to Rs 94,213 ($1,400).

Two banks are also responsible for the higher price. Federal Bank Limited and Bank of Japan did not change key policy rates, which did not help to keep the price of gold down. It also is not helpful that the dollar itself has dropped against other currencies.
In Singapore, the price of gold went from $10.80 to $1,302.30 per ounce.
