Gold Returns : 2013 - 2017
Dec 21, 2017

Returns from gold have been anything but flattering. Mainly a hedge against market volatility, gold prices have remained at roughly the same levels since 2013.

On the contrary, Share market in India has been on a constant upward trajectory during the same period. The only blip seen was in 2016, when gold prices gave healthy returns.

One more reason for the lackluster returns has been the global economy. US interest rates have been on the rise since 2014. This has swayed investors' interest towards government bonds, subsequently reducing demand for gold.

While the US Federal Reserve is also expected to raise interest rates next year, current gold valuations seem to have factored that in.

Certain political developments also warrant a look-in at gold. Rising tensions between US and North Korea and slowdown in Middle-east have been recent concerns. Also, it provides a hedge against markets which are touching new highs every day.
