Gold Stocks In India

Gold stocks are always in the limelight whenever there is uncertainty in the market. Deccan Gold Mines Ltd., one of the only gold stocks listed on the Indian stock exchange is up by nearly 81% in the last one year (as of April 18, 2022). Another popular gold stock in India is Titan Company Ltd. In the last one year, this gold stock is up by a whopping 61% (as of April 18, 2022). Even the war between Russia and Ukraine seems to have no major impact on gold stocks. Kalyan Jewellers India Ltd is up by 17% between February 24 and April 13, 2022. Even Titan Company Ltd is up by nearly 3% in the same period. This kind of performance justifies why gold is one of the most powerful asset classes in the world. And rightly so. Gold is a store of value. It is inflation-proof. It is the perfect hedge against economic downturns. It is one of the most stable and reliable asset-classes in the entire world. And gold has managed to prove its might during every economic crisis you could think of. Be it the great depression of the 1917s. Or the global financial crisis of 2008. Even the recent Russia-Ukraine conflict is a perfect example of how powerful gold truly is.
