Incoming US economic data releases before the FOMC suggest that a softer tone on interest rates could be adopted. But whether that will translate into big gains for gold and silver will be dependent on the ability to break past key medium term resistances. However in spite and despite everything, I still remain positive on silver for the medium term to long term and will use the fall ((if any) after the FOMC meet in silver to invest for next year. Long term physical silver investors can buy silver at current prices in small quantities and average it out on any ten percent dip (if any). But for physical silver investors, I need to say one thing, have patience.
The Indian stock markets and US stock markets have been offering much better investment return than gold and silver or any base metals. I still believe that gold and silver have to be a part of everyone’s long term portfolio even at current prices. In India selected stocks will offer more than double the return of gold and silver, but still as a hedge or as a safe haven everyone still needs to have physical gold and silver in their portfolio. In India the real estate sector should give bullion big competition this year. But very small savings can be invested in gold, silver or selected stock and not real estate.
In India taxation advantage in stock markets also lures people to invest directly or indirectly through mutual funds. Gold and silver do not have the taxation advantage as that of stock markets. Unless there are clear signals that gold and silver will give a return of over eighteen percent per year, the pace of Indian investment demand for gold and silver will be on the slower side. (I treat jewelry investment and pure physical gold and silver investment as separate). If silver shows signs of a sustained bull run, it could attract more investment demand as people’s perceptions change and their eyes open. In the long term as long as physical silver prices trade over Rs.31000 per kilogram, the chances of a rise to Rs.48,000 and Rs.63,000 per kilogram will be very high. ( A big unrecoverable crash will be there only if physical silver prices trade below Rs.31000 per kilogram for a few days at anytime for the rest of the year.) There is a lot of speculation that India could cut custom duties on gold and silver this year. If it happens then investment return could fall.
