As you all know that, as per the observation of economists, according to the current trend, it seems that the yellow metal is performing better as an investment option in comparison to mutual funds, equities, real estate, and fixed deposits. The weak global economic outlook for the entire year is might be the reason why gold prices are surging. The yellow metal is considered as a financial instrument that does not erode in valuation during periods of economic turbulence. Many global investors are looking for safer investment options including gold as fears over a recession continue to grow.

Therefore, today I am discussing year wise Price of Gold in India in last 56 year. So that we can observe the growth in gold market since 1964 till date.

    The same 18.75 if had invested with a mere return of 10% annually would have yield Rs.68,041.23624 and a good investment of 15% returns annually would yield Rs.31,11,827.701.
    So, gold is not a good idea when it comes to investment. But it is good idea for emergency money(like insurance) as it a very good liquid asset.

  2. SST says:

    returns from Gold needs to be compared against returns from FDs. I don’t think that the picture will be great. based on the above Gold prices, returns are approximately 9% which is at par with existing interest rates on FDs. I feel that there were years when interest on FDs were in double digit. So, investment in gold may disappoint you unless you invested some 5-10 years back.

    Very useful information is provided. People apprears are crazy to hold the metal and a right time to curb the possession. Prescribing a limit to hold jewellery and banning the primary gold without a declartion may solve the problem of inflation in price and such an imposition may also curb black money investment and curb corruption and crimes.
