Gold prices in Pakistan soared to unprecedented levels this week, surpassing previous records and reaching an all-time high, fueled by a significant surge in international rates.

The prominent benchmark of the local gold market concluded the week at an extraordinary Rs245,100 per tola, marking a notable increase of Rs10,300 compared to the previous week’s closing figures.

The ongoing rally in the domestic bullion market has been evident since March, during which the precious metal witnessed a substantial surge of Rs19,100, closely mirroring the upward trajectory of international gold prices.


Notably, the preceding peak for 24-karat gold was recorded earlier in the week at Rs240,000, as documented on May 10, 2023.

According to the Karachi Sarafa Association, the price of 24-karat gold surged to Rs210,134 per 10 grammes, registering an impressive increase of Rs8,831 week-on-week.

Similarly, the price of 22-karat gold also experienced an upward trend, being quoted at Rs192,62 per 10 grammes.

The remarkable ascent in gold prices underscores the dynamic nature of global economic factors impacting the precious metals market, highlighting the heightened demand and investor sentiment towards gold as a safe-haven asset amidst economic uncertainties.
