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.

The MCX price depends on dollar rate. If we see the trend of gold rates in India, we can find that its rising. http://www.paisabazaar.com/gold-rate/

Check out the updated calculations on this post:

The price difference in MCX & international market commodity rates depends on how MCX calculates the Indian Rupee price from the foreign contracts used as reference. Check out the below note that has been shared by the MCX team for calculating the price of energy, gold & other metal contracts.
