What Determines the Spot Price?
There is a global interest in gold, and it can be traded across a number of different exchanges from Hong Kong to London or New York. The key exchange that determines the live U.S. spot gold price is the COMEX. This had previously been a part of the New York Mercantile Exchange but is now with the CME Group out of Chicago. In the value calculation, data is taken from existing front month futures contract, but factors such as fluctuating currencies, bond and stock market turmoil and geopolitical reasons also impact the price.
Will I Be Getting the Spot Price?
The Spot Price of Gold is for an ounce of raw gold that has just been mined from the earth. However, this is for direct purchase from the mine and doesn't include any of the costs of refining, transporting, pouring into molds, minting/stamping, assay, packaging (if any), and distribution of the final product to you the investor. The price you pay for an item includes the spot price with an added premium to cover the manufacturing, operational, distribution and retailer costs.

When Are Gold Prices Best?
Gauging when to buy is a personal investment choice. Supply and demand have a significant impact on the price of gold, and through a 24-hour period, the price can move significantly. The spot price chart takes into account the banks, markets and investors operating overseas and throughout different time zones, which is why the price may move in either direction all day long. Though the gold market may experience extreme changes in pricing, there are also long periods of time where quiet trading and consistent price activity take place.
What Should I Buy First?
Your budget and the gold spot price will influence how much gold you are able to buy, but gold bars are often a cost-efficient way to get a lower premium over spot. Gold coins are typically minted by government mints, have a face value and may carry an additional numismatic or collectible value.
