What are the current gold and silver prices?
The best prices for gold and silver are those that are most reliable. Monex gold and silver prices have been an industry respected reference for decades, with over $55 billion in actual customer physical metal transactions. Over time, gold and silver prices tend to move in concert, mostly in opposition of depreciating fiat currencies. Recently, the price of gold has been about 60 times the price of silver, while historically it was closer to 20 times. Silver prices tend to be more volatile than gold, having relatively higher highs and lower lows. Many investors prefer silver investing because higher price volatility presents greater opportunities to profit, albeit with higher risk. Current trading prices of gold and silver investment quality metals are Atlas preferred prices.
What are Spot Prices?
Origins of SPOT represented the current month, rather than transactions for future delivery, deriving from “on the spot.” Common practice of the metals industry is to publish a bullion benchmark market value, “spot price,” which most universally is a particular trading day’s final settlement price per ounce of the COMEX/NYMEX futures exchange spot month. At other times of the day, metals dealers assess active trading on world markets to infer what they believe a benchmark spot price is. Monex publishes a current live spot price throughout its 11-hour trading day.
How is a Current Spot Price calculated?
Spot Prices represent the midpoint between Monex bullion bid and ask prices per ounce. A Current Spot Price is calculated based on a virtual non-stop price discovery process of most active comparable commodity transactions. For example, if the price per ounce of the current gold “Spot” month is two dollars less than the COMEX/NYMEX futures contract price, then at a time when that future contract trades at a given price, say $1200, it suggests a spot price of $1198. Obviously, market prices can fluctuate irrespective of a COMEX/NYMEX futures contract trading.
