Opportunities are Infinite
Continued market unpredictability and the growing inclination for protectionist policies forced many investors to seek safe alternatives in precious metals and diamond jewellery to manage the downside risks and optimize outcomes. The UK’s regulators added a small pricing firm to regulate investment in diamonds. The recent move by the regulators will allow institutions to offer products with a reference price. The regulatory support will ensure transparent pricing and promote long term investment in such commodities.
Gold surged over $1400 an ounce over instability created in the Persian Gulf and US-China standoff. In the same week, Bitcoin surged to $13,000 in the midweek from the lows of $4000.
Diamonds are investable but have performed poorly as an asset class, rather, it is considered unreliable to many buyers as they failed to get reliable documention, regulatory support and safer ways to invest in it. Most investors check the GIA certification to assess the real value. There are various aspects to be considered to get the best options like the setting/mounting and source. The millennial investors seek ethical options and want to invest in assets which are coming from a reputable source – where the mining code of practices, labour rights, human rights, environmental impact and other aspects are ensured. The Kimberley Process Certification Scheme helps to get conflict-free stones and it is assumed over 99 per cent of the stones in the market are conflict-free.
Many investors are diversifying in such alternatives to generate uncorrelated returns through stocks and bonds, while, the yellow metal remains a robust alternative diversifier which had a 7% y-o-y gains in demand and a 48.9% rise in demand for the gold-related ETF, and the demand by the central banks increased 67.9%.
The metal remains bullish when the markets were unstable. Recently, it was supported by the unpredictability created by the next round of trade negotiations, soft global growth and additional stimulus from the central banks. It can be bought as jewelry, long-term saving and as an industrial raw material. Its price continues to remain comparable to currencies and bonds. The key buyers in the South East Asian countries are highly optimistic about it even when the stock markets are positive.
Gold has a reverse movement as compared to the US dollar, and the recent decline in the dollar created a growth like situation, but even if the dollar continues to gain and maintain a higher range, it can affect the metal price. The investors are expecting the Federal Reserve announcement of rate cut to normalize the monetary policies, which will further support yellow metal.
The unexpected gains registered by the digital currencies like bitcoins have been linked to the risks of market downturns but such currencies have not historically proved to be a great alternative and there is no direct relation linking gold to Bitcoin. Some analysts believe that Bitcoin can never match gold as an ultimate safe haven.
