A week after the price hike, the Bangladesh Jewelers Association (BAJWS) has reduced the price of gold by about Tk. 2,000 per Tola. The new gold price will be effective from January 13. However, the price of silver will remain unchanged.

This information was given in a press release of Bajws on Tuesday (January 12). On January 5, the price of gold was increased by Tk. 1,983.

According to the press release, despite the global economy, dollar and oil depreciation, rising and falling prices in the international and domestic gold markets in the face of the second wave of corona, the price of gold has been reduced to cut business stagnation and keep the consumer in mind.

According to the new price, from January 13, the price of good quality, that is, 22 carats per gram (11.664 grams) of gold has been reduced by Taka one thousand 983 to Taka 72 thousand 667. The price of 21 carat gold has been fixed at Tk. 69,517, 18 carat gold at Tk. 60,769 and traditional gold at Tk 50,447 per Tola. On Tuesday, the best quality or 22 carat gold (11.664 grams) was sold at Tk. 74,650, 21 carat gold was sold at Tk. 71,500 and 18 carat gold was sold at Tk. 62,752.
