Today's UK gold chart shows you what the bullion price is right now in British Pounds per ounce. This live rate is used as a key reference by professional traders working in today's wholesale bullion market, where they can buy and sell gold for GBP at very low cost.

Today you can trade physical gold in that same large-bar format from as little as 1 gram at a time using BullionVault. Deal for British Pounds, and buy or sell at UK prices matching how much gold costs in the wholesale market, as shown on the live GBP gold chart above.

What moves today’s gold price in GBP will vary day to day, changing from market supply and demand to how much exchange rates, interest rates and the stock market are moving. Wider economic and political factors count too, both in the UK and worldwide.

Only you can decide whether today offers the best time or price for you to enter or exit the gold market. Some investors buy gold when the price is rising. Others capitalise on a downturn in prices – perhaps thanks to a rise in the UK Pound's current exchange rate – to start or increase how much gold they own at lower levels.
