Money making idea: Should you buy Gold? 54% gains expected in three months, experts give thumbs up
On Rs 1.75 lakh investment portfolio, an investor can expect up to Rs 80,000 in two to three month time, say commodity experts
On account of surging crude oil prices in global merchandise and US Federal Reserves’ view to keep interest rates unchanged, gold prices are likely to break its immediate resistance at Rs 33,300/10 gms at the Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX) and move forward towards Rs 33,800 to Rs 4,000 per 10 gram prices in short-term (two to three month), say experts. Currently, the MCX gold future for April expiry is at around Rs 33,200/10 gm levels. Since the margin money required for the gold investment is 5.25 per cent of the lot size (1 kg) means around Rs 1,75,000 and on this investment return could be in the range of Rs 80,000 as Rs 1 surge leads to Rs 100 gain in gold investment at MCX.
Speaking on the gold outlook Anuj Gupta, Deputy Vice President — Commodity and Forex research at Angel Broking told Zee Business Online, "The crude oil prices in the global markets are surging due to the sanctions on Iran and Venezuela and output cut by Russia. This would put pressure on the Current Account Deficit (CAD) of the Indian economy as the majority of India's oil demand is being met through imports." He said that pressure on CAD would lead to lowering of the Indian rupee against the US dollar, which is expected to fuel the gold prices in domestic markets.
