If hallmarking data are anything to go by, the proportion of spurious jewellery in the country might have shrunk significantly in the past five years. Often, Indian gold jewellery has been frowned at for its doubtful purity level. But that may now be a story of the past. If hallmarking data are anything to go by, the proportion of spurious jewellery in the country might have shrunk significantly in the past five years. In 2018-19, the proportion of hallmarked Indian gold jewellery stood at 80 per cent, a major improvement from 2013-14, when only half the gold jewellery produced in India was hallmarked for purity. Hallmarking of jewellery is not yet mandatory in the country, but the government has a plan to this effect ready for a rollout. The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), which oversees hallmarking, also provides data on the number of jewellery pieces that were hallmarked in a year.

Experts recommend buying gold as the fundamentals supporting a rally have not changed. The price of gold has fallen about 10 per cent over the past 50 days. At one point, gold price on the MCX was down about Rs 7,000 per 10 gram. Prices in the international market are still elevated as there was a $300 per ounce spurt in July and the subsequent fall was a little over $200 per ounce. This fall, however, is being seen as an opportunity to buy for those investors who missed out on the earlier rally. The rise of the dollar, improvement in yields, US stimulus delay, the US Federal Reserve’s decision to not push rates into negative territory, and fears of a third wave of Covid-19 have led to traders selling all assets, including equities and gold, and buying the dollar ahead of the elections in that country. Experts recommend buying gold as the fundamentals supporting a gold rally have not changed.

Two years ago, Joanie Lemercier, a French artist known for his perception-bending light sculptures, took on a new role as a climate activist. He attended protests against coal mining, projecting lasers onto excavators and government offices with dramatic effect, and began a campaign demanding Autodesk stop selling its design software to fossil fuel operations. He also took a closer look at his own energy use, which included a hefty heating bill for his studio in Brussels, electricity for the high-end computers to render his creations, and dozens of flights each year to exhibitions around the world. He tracked it all down to the watt and vowed to reduce his energy use by 10 percent each year, a goal he had successfully met. Then, a few months ago, in the course of a few minutes, his progress was erased. The culprit was Lemercier’s first blockchain “drop.” The event involved the sale of six so-called nonfungible tokens, or NFTs, which took the form of short videos inspired by the … [Read more...] about NFTs Are Hot.
