Gold prices are trading down by 0.1% at Rs 46,015 per 10 grams.

Gold prices edged lower in Indian markets today after falling more than 1% in the previous session, helped by a subdued dollar, although Federal Reserve's plans on reducing stimulus to the US economy kept the bullion on track for a third straight week of declines.

In global markets, gold prices plunged after record gains in global equities and benchmark 10-year bond yields in the United States.

Speaking of the precious yellow metal, how lucrative has gold been as a long-term investment in India?

The chart below shows the annual returns on gold over the last 15 years...

As you can see, barring just two years - 2013 and 2015, gold has delivered positive returns in 13 of the last 15 years.

Even with the recent volatility in prices, gold and silver remain among the best performing commodities this year to combat the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic.

Moving on to stock-specific news...

Among the buzzing stocks today is Dilip Buildcon.

Shares of Dilip Buildcon jumped over 8% on the bourses in intraday trade today after the Supreme Court confirmed the appointment of the company and VPR Mining Infrastructure as mine developer and operator for the Pachhwara Central Coal Block mine.

The total contract value of the deal stands at Rs 321.6 bn.

The Pachhwara Central Coal Block is located in the Pakur district of Jharkhand and was reserved for end use by the power sector. It was allotted to Punjab State Power Corporation (PSPCL) for its captive utilisation.

The mineable reserve of the block is 382.1 MMT (million metric tonnes), which was to be exploited over 55 years by selection and appointment of a mine developer-cum-operator through a competitive bidding process.

The consortium of DBL and VPR emerged as the L1 bidder in the reverse auction conducted by PSPCL and consequently the letter of award (LoA) was issued in its favour. On 21 September, a Supreme Court bench took the decision in accordance with Section 11 of the Coal Mines Act of 2015.
