Pakistan’s prominent financial expert Dr Babar Bin Dilawar said that gold prices usually move inversely with dollar rates, and decline in gold prices during past few months was because of the decrease of dollar rates against rupee. However, he said, recent decline in price of gold is because of unstable political situation and on international level due to Ukraine issue.
Commenting on the local market situation, he said that the gold prices may shot up at any moment as the local buyers depend a lot on international trading rates to fix gold price.
