    hi all ,
    i have been investing in share market and also in gold as we Indians mostly do..now the markets is in its one of the low times where i m holding my shares as all of them are in loss but yes i also purchased them for a long run. and on the contrary gold which i bought for marriage purpose has its value increased.

    so i think it would have been better for me to go for gold rather investing in shares..
    what do you think?

    share your views and suggestions..

    regds,

    Gold is better than equity only if it is in the form of ETFs.

    Purchase of physical gold is a very poor investment as there are charges for making, wastage etc even for gold bars and when the time comes to convert to cash, you get lower than market price.

    This is not the case with equity as it is easy to transact, both buy and sell. However, the risk is higher than gold.
