Fees - Frequently Asked Questions

What are Market Closed Prices?

On weekends & some public holidays, the global bullion market does not operate. As such, the spread between the buy and sell prices determined and imposed by our gold suppliers is typically more expansive than the spread during the weekdays.

What is market "Premium"?

 A "Premium" is the excess charged above the intrinsic value of gold content.

Factors that drive Market Premium: -
A) Market Supply & Demand Situations
b) Global & Local Economic conditions
c) Market premium is driven by high demand

On occasion, there may be shortages of physical bullion in the market due to higher than expected demand. The surge in demand may be due to uncertainty or import restrictions imposed by a government. 

Supply constraints are another example that affects the premiums. Logistical constraints that have affected the delivery of bullion from one country to another, resulting in delayed shipment, may affect gold prices.

Closure of operations: - Gold refineries may experience supply chain issues such as a lack of unrefined gold or because they are unable to operate at full capacity.
