For gold the international interbank spot data is taken in ($/Oz),

silver data taken from international interbank spot in ($/Oz),
copper prices are taken from LME 3 months forward ($/ton),

Correlation analysis shows that there is a good correlation between

gold and euro_usd and then gradually sloping towards silver and then
dow, copper and crude_nymex. Crude has shown the least correlation
to gold and then copper.

The model shows a greater degree of fit i.e R2 of 0.9 and hence
can be considered as a good model for gold price prediction.
The scatter diagram for residual fits shows that the predictor
maximum deviation ranges from -40 to +40 but well remain in the
median range of $2-4. The below scatter chart plots the residual
with date.
Scope for Future Work

•The selection of independent variables was subjected

to availability of high frequency data (daily) so more
independent variables should be introduced.
•Dow and euro_usd shows high correlation and hence
may pose a problem of multicolinearity but P (Probability
of hypothesis) has not eliminated either of the variables.
•Elimination of one of the variables changes the model,
but eventually elimination of Dow from the model keeps
the fitness intact, hence dow can be significantly
removed, future work will include addition of such not
correlated exogenous independent variable in the
•The model may be fitted with Indian data for making it
relevant to Indian market.
