Gold is generally acknowledged and can be exchanged easily for any currency in the world. But unlike dollars, yen, or Euros, gold does not get devalued through unfavorable market conditions.
Throughout history, gold has been a safe haven for investors who seek diversification and protection from a volatile stock market. It has been carried as a store of value. It is basically a type of currencies that cannot be changed by the interest rate policies of any government and has conventionally been used as a hedge against inflation.
Gold is one of the premium commodities in India. Traditionally, gold has been sought as a long-term investment tool to hedge against inflation and also act as safe investment. However, over the last decade, gold has become an eye-catching trade mechanism, an asset for all classes of investors.
Gold prices are always on the rise due to uncertain economic conditions like monetary policies, rising labor costs in gold mining companies, some regulations at some places and high volume of currency variation across international markets. India is the largest consumer of gold; the demand for gold is far exceeding supply. Due to this, gold prices have shot up and hence in the near future we might see some consolidation in the gold mining industry.
