Subsequently, gold become a medium of hedging for future investment. In order to forecasting future price changes and to make a wise decision, investor or trader should have clear understanding regarding the factors that have a potential to influence the gold price. Thus, to comply with this situation, investors need to know the determinants that have possibilities to influence the price of gold in Malaysia in order to predict its movement in future. The purpose of this study is to determine the determinants that will affect gold price in Malaysia comprises 32 observations of the independent and dependent variables on a yearly time series data over 32 years period from year 1982 to 2013.
