KARACHI: The price of gold in Pakistan fell on Saturday as concerns regarding rupee-dollar parity triggered uncertainty in the commodity market.

During the outgoing week, the precious commodity lost around Rs4,300 per tola or 3.35%.

Earlier, speaking to Geo.tv, AA Commodities Director Adnan Agar had said that the price of gold in the local market is completely dependent on two factors.

“Currency movement and international price changes have a significant impact on the price of the precious commodity in Pakistan,” he had elaborated.

Meanwhile, the precious metal recorded a decrease of $12 per ounce in the international market to settle at around $1,846.
