The last few months have been very tumultuous for gold prices in India. There was a downward trend in the prices owing to the wait for the announcement of the US Federal interest rate changes. The prices have now been recovering a bit and are up a bit now. Where in December of 2015 they were down to Rs. 25,724 for 10 grams of 24 Karat gold, they now stand at about Rs. 29,800. The reason the prices suffered such a drop in price was also that the uncertainty of the price of gold was deterring imports and was also pushing the demand down. Since the announcement of the interest rates, the prices of gold have been recovering across the country.
Warangal is a district about 145 km northeast of the city of Hyderabad. It is one of the cities that has been slated to be turned into one of India’s first 100 smart cities. The main economic activity of the city is agriculture with it sporting Asia’s second largest grain market. The city is also attracting investors from the information technology and providing them with the opportunity to set up shop there. It has also been given the status of a world heritage by UNESCO as a result of its strong ties to the history of the country.
Gold as an investment
While Warangal may be an industrial town which is attracting more and more attention from the IT industry, its people also keep a close watch on investment opportunities. These opportunities can even present themselves in the form of investments in gold.
Physical gold: Physical gold is the most common form of investment when it comes to investing in gold. In such an investment, people actually purchase gold in the form of jewellery, not with the view of it being an ornament but from the view of it being an investment and an ornament. Warangal has a good network of gold shops and traders who offer people the opportunity to be able to invest in gold through jewellery.
Buying gold from banks: Another way gold can be invested in, in Warangal, is through the purchase of gold bullion through banks. Banks offer both 22 karat and 24 karat gold along with proper certification for the gold purchased.
Investing in gold ETF: Gold can also be invested in through gold ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds) that don’t require the investors to own physical gold purchased from banks or shops. These funds track the market price of gold and can even be offered in the form of mutual funds. They offer a good opportunity to gain returns through investment in gold markets.
