How to calculate, Gold & Silver, international prices and MCX price, parity and disparity?

Assume Gold is at $1229 an ounce and Silver at $16.98 an ounce in the international market. How much should the ideal MCX price be?

There is always a difference if I multiply the USDINR rate and try to calculate. So I am assuming there is more to it than just multiplying the USDINR rate with the Gold/Silver $ rate.

Any fixed formula to calculate this parity/disparity.


I have also put up the below on this link along with the formulae used: 

  Gold       Silver    
  Spot in $ (per troy oz) 1,229.00     spot in $ (per troy oz) 16.98

  Final Price per 10 gms 27,367.37          
  MCX Price 26,678.00     MCX Price 37,623.00  
  Parity/(disparity) 689.37     Parity/(disparity) 352.17  

Damn good one . . .Nithin . . .shared it in my FB group . . .

@Nithin, Thanks a lot, never knew such a thing existed.

Nithin ji awsesome , can i get same one like this for copper or can u give me the details where can i get these so that i can calculate it on myself.

Can you please help…as to how to find cif of gold/ silver?
Or can you just help with a numerical example.

The MCX price depends on dollar rate. If we see the trend of gold rates in India, we can find that its rising.
