Investors generally buy gold as a hedge or harbour against economic, political, or social fiat currency crises . The gold market is subject to speculation as are other markets, especially through the use of futures contracts and derivatives.  Gold price has shown along term correlation with the price of crude oil. This suggests a reason why gold is sold off during economic weakness.

Now-a- days most banks also sell gold coins. Buying physical gold has high transactional costs and also if bought from a non-reputed jeweller, it also has risks in terms of getting duped on purity of gold.

In India, e- gold is offered by the National Spot Exchange Limited (NSEL).An investor needs to register as a client with any NSEL member.
