Gold/Silver ration

Here you can see the relationship between the gold and silver price in USD. As you might have noticed, there is a correlation between the gold and silver price, although silver is generally more volatile.

Why is it worth measuring the 1 kg gold price in USD?

Firstly, gold is mainly denominated in US-dollars, so when you measure the 1 kg gold price in USD, it's easier to monitor how the value of this precious metal is directly impacted by different geopolitical and economic factors. Measuring per kilogram may also be more appropriate if you're planning on investing in large quantities of gold or already have a substantial gold portfolio.

But why measure the 1 kg gold price in USD if the US uses the imperial system?

Although the US is one of the few countries in the world that still measures the gold price per ounce, measuring the gold price in kg in USD may be more helpful if you live in a country that uses the metric system.

  • Most non-US media outlets quote the gold price using the metric system, rather than the imperial system.
  • Measuring the gold price per kg in USD could also make it easier to compare this precious metal's price with other commodities such as silver, platinum and palladium.
  • The "ounce" most often used to measure gold is actually a "troy ounce" which is different from a US-ounce. The troy ounce weighs roughly 31.1 grams. So even if you are using the imperial system, using "ounces" to measure gold can still prove tricky as you will have to do the math to convert from troy ounce to regular ounce. This is also why it can be simpler to look at the price of gold in kilo (or gram) instead.

What affects the price of gold per 1 kg in USD?

The price of gold is impacted by supply and demand, as well as economic and geopolitical events such as central bank decisions, GDP data, political instability and supply shortages.

Why investors flock to gold during economic volatility

Many investors consider gold to be a safe haven which maintains its value over time. When inflation rises and/or the value of stocks and shares fall, the gold price in USD often goes up as more investors transfer some of their wealth to gold. Because gold has intrinsic value and cannot be printed like money, it has a limited supply. This means there is high demand for this precious metal, which is why its price tends to rise over time as more people buy gold as an inflation hedge.

Monitoring the price of gold per 1kg in USD compared to other measurements

Measuring the gold price per 1kg in USD can be helpful for comparing the performance of gold with other commodities, such as silver, palladium or platinum. If you are planning to buy 1kg gold bars, you may find it easier to measure the performance of your investments per 1kg in USD rather than a smaller unit of measurement.

However, other investors may prefer to measure the USD gold price in smaller amounts, such as per ounce or per gram This can make it easier to track the value of smaller investments, such as our 1g gold bars or 1 ounce gold bars.

Why buy gold in 1kg bars in USD
