Recently, due to the fluctuation of global economic and financial health, the world had witnessed the declines of many financial assets from as traditional as equities to the modern as mortgage. In contrast, the gold commodity impressively exposed to roughly doubling their price, that had derived by many factors. Based on other research theories, it is said that the currency exchange rates and the inflation rates have positively influence upon the gold price change. Except for the stock market price, some said it has positively influence upon the gold price while some said oppositely, relying on the substitution relationship of the gold and stock market in a country. If the stock market price has a positive influence upon the gold price, it means gold is not an alternative to the stock market, and vice versa. Because these determinants’ influence upon the vary of gold prices were based on other researches and theories, it does not prove how approximate the robustness of each factors’ influence upon the gold price. Based on this research’s results, overally, these independent variables were proven to be positively correlated with gold price along with a high degree of total variable explaination to the gold price change (R2).
