The Sai Gon Jewelry Holdings Co. (SJC)'s gold was being traded between VND37.45 million and VND38.15 million (buying and selling) per tael, or 1.2 ounces, increasing by VND1.1 million compared with the July 5 session. 

Meanwhile, the price of gold in the Asian market was at US$1,367.5 per ounce, US$23 higher than the earlier session. 

At these trading prices, after converting according to the Vietcombank's foreign exchange rate, the global price of gold was equal to VND36.79 million per tael. 

The price hike was attributed to weak economic data from China and the unstable situation following Brexit vote, which had customers' appetite for gold.
