This live chart displays the Pound price of gold both now and over the last 10 minutes. A tip from our head of trading is to resize this chart, and place it in the corner of your screen as you get ready to buy or sell bullion. Now tracking the current UK gold price in real time, you will be better able to time your purchase or sale to get today's best rate.

The live gold price displayed on these charts is generated from thousands of bid and offer prices, quoted by thousands of bullion-bank dealers and brokers around the globe. The world's wholesale market is centred in London. So industry practice, as on the chart you're now looking at, quotes the current price for large gold bars settled in London, the UK capital.

When the wholesale market closes for weekends or UK public holidays, you will now see a flat horizontal line on the chart. Even then, BullionVault still provides live prices at which you can buy or sell gold online in British Pounds, US Dollars, Euros and Japanese Yen.
