    Gold Investment Avenues in West Bengal

    West Bengal has multiple options for investors who wish to purchase gold. Following are the most common forms that buyers can choose from based on their unique investment requirements.

    p>

    Market trade: E-Gold, future contracts and ETFs (Exchange Trade Funds) are the most popular opportunities so far as gold trading is concerned. Most investors choose ETFs as they not only provide good returns, but can also be traded on the Mumbai Stock Exchange. Future contracts are also attractive offers for investors to consider as they provide protection against market fluctuations and buyers have the option of taking possession of their purchase on a predetermined date. E-Gold is mainly purchased by investors who don’t really want to take possession of the metal, but rather sell it at a later date for a profit. E-Gold may be bought and sold via the National Spot Exchange Limited and investors are afforded the option of physically owing the metal should they prefer to do so.

    Over-the-counter: A large number of gold investors in West Bengal prefer to buy gold in the form of jewellery, coins and bullions. Gold coins and bullions can be purchased from major dealers and banks across the state, but local prices are often dictated by international rates. Majority of the investors generally choose to purchase from local dealers instead of banks because the prices charged by dealers are significantly less. Banks charge slightly more than dealers because of quality assurance.

    • Price of gold holds steady after decreasing by 2% due to trade concerns

      On Thursday, 26 September 2019, the price of gold steadied from its 2% fall in the previous days. The rise in prices compared to earlier this week was attributed to investors falling back on the bullion due to uncertainty of the ongoing trade war between the United State of America and China.

      However, bullion prices couldn’t go higher as the value of the US dollar increased against other currencies. The value of the dollar increased as the democrats in the House of Representatives launched an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump. This resulted in investors seeking refuge in the dollar.

      Due to this, the value of gold decreased by 1.8% which was the highest one-day percentage fall in three weeks. Spot gold recovered marginally on 26 September rising by 0.3% to be priced at $1,507.86 per ounce. U.S futures were up by 0.2% and priced at $1,514.80 an ounce.

      Amidst uncertain geopolitical issues such as the U.S-China trade war and the impeachment inquiry on the president, the market is not likely to leave an opportunity to buy gold. The U.S. dollar has been steady in the markets as investors remain confused about the ongoing situation of the trade war.

    • Gold Prices Decline for Three Days Straight

      Gold prices recorded a declining trend in the country as losses were posted for a third straight day in succession.

So far as global markets were concerned, gold prices recorded a marginal decline at $1492.15 per ounce.

      Internationally, gold prices had increased to a six-year high, crossing $1550 earlier in September 2019 due to fears surrounding the trade war between China and the United States of America. Many were expecting growth to slow further, but gold prices have since eased as China and the United States extended certain tariff concessions as they gear up for their talks in October.

      Interest rates were cut by the United States Federal Reserve this week, as expected. Reduced interest rates enhance the appeal of non-yielding assets such as gold. However, investors are cautious as the Federal Reserve is sending mixed signals regarding future easing.
