The fall comes after gold prices rose sharply to US$1,760/ounce on international markets on May 18, forcing the price of domestic gold to peak at VND49.4 million/tael, going way above the VND49.1 million record that was set back in February.

Despite this, May 19 saw domestic gold prices fall in line with global trends, hovering at just below VND49 million/tael.

Experts believe that current Vietnamese gold prices are mirroring that of global trends.
