On September 20, the reporter saw in the online shopping mall or official website of Chow Tai Fook, Liu Fook Jewelry, Chow Tai Sheng, Laomiao Gold and other jewelry brands that the price of gold jewelry per gram is about 490 yuan. In June this year, most of the gold jewelry brands sold more than 500 yuan per gram, and some even exceeded 520 yuan.
The reporter found that in some gold jewelry sales stores, some salesmen said that some gold jewelry had a discount of 10-30 yuan per gram, while some stores said that there would be preferential activities during the National Day holiday.

"I think it's appropriate to buy it recently. For about a year and a half ago, the price of 'savings' per gram remained at about 410 yuan." In a bank outlet, a salesperson said that recently the "accumulated savings" products were popular, and he also bought some.
As of press release, mobile banking of Bank of China, China Construction Bank and Industrial and Commercial Bank of China showed that the active accumulated price of "accumulated fund" products was less than 400 yuan per gram, of which the price of such products of China Construction Bank and Industrial and Commercial Bank of China was relatively low, about 385 yuan per gram.
The current or not the best investment period
As for the reason for the recent sharp fall in international gold prices, Zhou Maohua, a financial analyst of Everbright Bank, said that the main reason is that the market is worried about the Federal Reserve's interest rate hike, which will drive interest rates up sharply and weaken the attractiveness of gold. In addition, the strengthening of the US dollar will also put pressure on the gold price denominated in US dollars.
As for gold investment, Luo You, a researcher at Starmap Financial Research Institute, said that in the short term, gold can now be used as part of the household asset allocation plan, but it should be purchased gradually in batches, "At present, it has become a big probability that the Federal Reserve will continue to raise interest rates. For the purpose of income, global capital will flood into the U.S. dollar from non interest bearing gold and other safe haven assets, so that the U.S. dollar index will be in the upward channel, and gold price pressure at the other end of the 'seesaw' will increase sharply."
Duan Fulin, an analyst with Hehualian Futures, said that at present, it may not be the best time to invest in gold. "If the Federal Reserve continues to raise interest rates in the near future, American inflation will be controlled, and the probability of raising interest rates in the first quarter of next year will be greatly reduced, and even interest rates may be reduced. This is a better time to invest in gold."
