In India, the demand for gold is witnessing a steady rise. As an investment, the yellow metal is regarded as one of the best hedges against inflation. Gold can be held in paper, like gold ETFs and sovereign gold bonds, or physically i.e. as jewellery, gold bars and coins. Its rate varies across cities due to local market factors such as its supply and demand, state taxes and transportation charges (of physical gold). This article focuses on how lucrative gold investments are in the city of Indore and its rates over the recent months.
A number of factors have an impact on the gold rate in Indore. Here is a look at a few:
It is important for users to stay updated about the rate of gold, as even a small variation can cause a significant loss. The gold rates today are very high when compared to that of a decade ago. Prior to making a purchase, people are advised to compare the different rates charged by jewellers in the city. The bigger ones tend to charge higher in making charges.
If one wants to buy physical gold, all that the individual would have to do is go to a jewellery store and purchase gold jewellery and/or gold coins. Other than physical gold, users can buy gold ETFs. To buy gold ETFs, the individual can ask his or her broker to buy the same after opening a broking and trading account. Sovereign gold bonds are also listed, and people can buy them in the same manner as listed shares are bought.
A few factors to keep in mind before buying physical gold are as follows:
Level of purity: The purity of gold is measured and termed in Karats. The purest form available is 24 Karat (KT). However, this is too soft for making ornaments. Jewellers mostly use 14, 18 or 22 karat gold in their jewellery. The level of purity has a bearing on the rate of gold.
Making charges: An important element that has an impact on the gold rate is its making charges. Some jewellers fix it as a flat making charge per gram (of gold) or as a percentage of the gold value.
Hallmarking: It is advisable to check for BIS hallmark while buying physical gold. The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) has been set up by the government for ensuring that people do not get cheated while buying gold.
