Gold Growth is Stunted
Gold rates fell by a slight margin last week as investors cashed in their gains after the metal achieved its highest growth in the past 30 years. But fears of the investors have not been allayed as the US employment increased and naturally the Federal Reserve would deem it fit to increase the tax on the yellow metal.
Prices went up by 16 percent in March as people thought a tax hike wouldn’t be done after all. China and India have been more conservative about buying more gold due to the concerns that have been floating around since the last year. In addition to that, the gold tax imposed in India has made matters even more dire.
