Business Term of the Day

Definition

The term bullion refers to precious metals in the processed forms of ingots or bars and which are traded on commodities markets.

Example sentence

The demand for both bullion and jewelry has seen a sharp increase ahead of the Indian wedding season and Hindu religious festivals that begin in September.

Comment

Precious metals traded include gold, silver, platinum and palladium, among others. When they are cast into ingots or bars, they become bullion. Purity and mass are the main categories according to which the value of bullion is measured. Coins minted from precious metals are not usually referred to as bullion. Some investors purchase bullion as a hedge against inflation.

Definice

Termín kov ve slitcích označuje drahé kovy ve zpracované formě ingotů nebo prutů, se kterými se obchoduje na trhu komodit.

Příklad použití ve větě

Poptávka po kovech ve slitcích i po špercích zaznamenala prudký nárůst před sezónním obdobím indických námluv a hinduistických slavností, které začínají v září.

Poznámka

Obchodované drahé kovy zahrnují, kromě jiných, zlato, stříbro, platinu a palladium. Když se odlijí do ingotů nebo prutů, stane se z nich neražený kov. Hlavními kategoriemi, podle kterých se posuzuje hodnota neraženého kovu, jsou čistota a hmotnost. Mince ražené z drahých kovů se obvykle neoznačují jako „kov ve slitcích“. Někteří investoři kupují neražené kovy jako zajištění proti inflaci.
