Gold price shoots to an all-time high in Pakistan on Friday.

With a fresh increment of Rs750 per tola, the price of 24-K gold in Pakistan soared to an all-time high of Rs163,500.

While the price of 10-gram gold has also surged by Rs643.

Regarded as safe-haven, bullion was still bound for a second straight weekly gain on expectations of a moderation in the pace of US rate hikes.

As reported, the gold rates in Pakistan are around Rs1,000 below the cost compared to the rate in the Dubai market.

Gold is once again attracting safe-haven investment as  people usually take positions in gold during inflationary times and at present inflation is the largest challenge in Pakistan.
