Why will Gold become expensive?
Gupta said that the demand for Gold is seeing an uptick as the coronavirus cases see huge resurgence. Gold and Silver are considered a safe haven for investors at a time when the other asset classes including equity are not doing too well or there are economic uncertainities, he said.
Another important factor is the weakening of Indian Rupee (INR) against the US Dollar making imports expensive. That could soon reflect in the prices. He says that it is a good time to buy Gold and Silver as the wedding season and Akshaya Tritiya may push the Gold and Silver prices, further up.
In physical markets gold price was quoted at 48400 levels and Silver price is quoted at 69000 levels. Gold was trading at USD 1757 at the time of filing this story. An upside up to USD 1800 is now open for Gold, the VP said.
