GOLD price increases when the macro-economy is falling. Otherwise, gold is a totally dead investment.
On the other side, developed countries have no interested in buying gold. They are focusing more on financial assets.
3. FINANCIAL ASSETS
Also, financial assets give the batter returns than real estate and gold in the long run. We, Indians have fear of losing money because we see the volatile market. Our economy is highly dependent on Foreign Institutional Investment(FII).
