As we come into the week of Dhanteras and Diwali, and the celebrations that go with that, let us talk about some of the financial decisions we may consider at this time. I heard Swarup Mohanty at Mirae Asset Management say this a few weeks ago: “Dhanteras is the time for our Annual SIP into Gold.” It’s true and I’d never thought of it that way.
Buying Gold has been a traditional investment for many. But financial markets have developed to the point that we look at buying Gold as a financial decision – complete with its risks, rewards, and top-down analysis.
(I’m not sure if Mr. Mohanty came up with that expression or if I should have credited someone else. I heard it from him. Please forgive any mistakes in this.)
