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 diamond investment. 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 midweek from the lows of $4000.
Diamonds are investable but have performed poorly as an asset class; it is considered unreliable to many buyers as they failed to get reliable documentation, 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. Millennial investors seek ethical options and want to invest in assets 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 diversify in such alternatives to generate uncorrelated returns through stocks and bonds. At the same time, the yellow metal remains a robust alternative diversified, which had a 7% y-o-y gain in demand and a 48.9% rise in demand for the gold-related ETF, and the demand by the central banks increased by 67.9%.
The metal remained 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 jewellery, long-term savings, and 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 compared to the US dollar, and the recent decline in the dollar created a growth-like situation. Still, even if the dollar continues to gain and maintain a higher range, it can affect the metal price.
Investors expect the Federal Reserve announcement of the rate cut to normalize the monetary policies, further supporting yellow metal.
The unexpected gains registered by digital currencies like bitcoins have been linked to the risks of market downturns. Still, such currencies have not historically proved 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 haven.
