Indian demand for gold and silver will begin around the 20th of August. The Hindu festival of “Rakhee” marks the beginning of two and half months of festivals in India. Rakhee is a big gifting day also. On the emerging gifting trend in India, mobile phone and electronic gadgets are the most popular. Light weight silver jewelry, silver rakhee and other silver items are increasingly catching the fancy of the one and all in India. Gold is not a big gifting thing on rakhee. I expect physical silver demand in India to rise as jewelers prepare for higher sales on rakhee and follow up festivals such as Krishna Janasthami and Ganesh Chaturthi (mainly in Maharashtra and Gujarat). Even the follow up Hindu festivals are silver consuming festivals. Silver fundamental outlook is bullish for the next three month due to Indian demand and Asian demand.
My experience on analyzing from 2003 is that Indians buy gold in a panic only when there is media hype of a quick rise and a sustained rise. Pure gold jewelry demand is paving the way for diamonds and stones with very little gold content. The lower middle class and middle class people are more and more buying these kinds of jewelry. Another factor for change in Indian gold demand pattern is the young generation (between age 18-30) prefer light weight and budget jewelry and something which they can change frequently. The gold demand pattern in India can be summarized as – lower middle class is now shifting to pure gold jewelry from silver as income rises à middle class is moving to cheap diamond and colored stones studded jewelry from pure gold jewelry à The rich have started moving back to pure gold and pure platinum jewelry from diamonds. This trend will continue. However gold investment demand is on the rise among all classes in India.
