11 Jan 2024, 01:02 PM IST Sensex Today Live: Gold Outlook for 2024: Colin Shah, MD, Kama Jewelry

Gold prices have been on an upward trajectory in 2023 and this momentum is expected to continue in 2024. Internationally, the volatility of the yellow metal prices will continue and will be triggered by various factors including the on-going geo-political scenario, strengthening of USD against INR and a pessimistic approach towards the growth of global economy.

Domestic demand for the yellow metal is expected to outgrow and may touch the 70k mark on a domestic level. This rally will be driven by robust demand in the domestic market owing to the rising income levels and the inclination towards yellow metal. On the global level, we expect prices to hover in the range of $1850-2050. Irrespective of the price movement, consumer demand will continue to grow during the year backed by strengthened purchasing power, and the change in perspective towards gold as lifestyle statement, thus driving sales across along all ticket-sizes."

11 Jan 2024, 11:46 AM IST Sensex Today Live: Nischal Shetty, co-Founder, Shardeum on US SEC approving Bitcoin ETFs

 

“The introduction of a Bitcoin ETF marks a significant milestone, bridging the traditional financial markets with the innovative realm of digital assets. This landmark development not only validates the growing importance of crypto but also opens new avenues for institutional investors to participate in the transformative potential of blockchain technology. We have seen that approx 5% to 10% of Gold ownership is through ETFs. With the Bitcoin ETFs, people are expecting a good % of Bitcoin ownership to be routed through the ETFs.

If Bitcoin ETFs reach similar figures as gold, then at the current market cap that’s potentially $50B to $80B in new liquidity. Embracing this evolution, we are witnessing the convergence of two worlds, where the decentralized ethos of crypto meets the regulatory framework of traditional finance, paving the way for a more inclusive and resilient financial ecosystem."
