Gold is always considered as a valuable diversifies in times of economic and geopolitical uncertainty
A couple of months ago, the economic upswing was still firmly established, production expanded, and unemployment was declining. It all changed with the advent of the coronavirus or, to be precise: things turned really sour with the politically dictated lockdowns. As a reaction to the spread of the virus, governments in many countries ordered shops and firms to shut down and people to stay home. The inevitable result was a close-to-complete breakdown of the economic system. Whether it were smalls MSEs or giants like RSBL businesses were hit completely and so were the lives of hundreds of millions of people who were thrown into outright despair; in India alone 120 million workers lost their jobs in April 2020.
In US too, jobs numbers weren’t quite appealing. Even though the U.S. ADP private jobs reports were stronger than expected for May and there was a decline in initial jobless claims. Still investors believe that the numbers won’t remain positive for long. RiddiSiddhi Bullions Limited agreed with the numbers projected by a survey of Bloomberg. Nonfarm payrolls are expected to drop by 7.5 million in May (compared with a 2.76 million private job losses estimated by ADP) and jobless rate is anticipated to jump to 19.1% from 14.7% in April, as per the Bloomberg’s survey estimates.

RiddiSiddhi Bullions Limited, one of the top gold dealers in India that gold will continue its streak but albeit with a few hiccups here and there. One can expect a few dips in the price of rsbl gold in the coming week as economies begin to unlock improving conditions and as well as risk appetite for asset classes by investors. However, one should not expect the price of rsbl gold coins to drop sharply. The rising tension between US-China in tradeoff and a weak dollar will ensure the price of the yellow metal remain on the higher side.
