The right time to sell gold

The gold market is globally renowned for delivering steady returns, as opposed to the silver market. Although prices go up and down in the short term, the yellow metal is a trusted asset class that delivers good returns in the long term. Often, gold coins and bars behave differently and coins can carry premiums due to manufacturing costs, as well as numismatic value. As an investor, you need to be actively studying gold prices. Nowadays, this is easy to do.

Selling gold for a profit needs an understanding of the gold markets[/caption]The price of gold is the spot price per ounce in USD that dynamically changes all the time. Most reputed gold dealers will have a ticker on their website that tracks the continually changing price of gold. But, selling in a smart and calculated way is all about setting objectives. If youu2019ve purchased gold a few years ago and the price of gold reaches your target price, you can think about starting to sell. Of course, many people sell their gold due to the urgent requirement of funds. However, in this case, you may not realise the amount of profits you had in mind.

Discussing your sale with your broker

A key step in the selling process is to discuss your objective to sell with your broker. A good broker can give you sound advice on whether or not the time is right for sale. Currently, the spot price of gold is quite high at about $1600 per ounce. If youu2019ve studied historical price charts of gold, youu2019ll realise that the all-time high was achieved at the height of the last financial crisis in 2011 at around $1900 per ounce. So, many investors are currently gearing up to sell.
