Outlook for the Samvat 2080
“With the Indian elections looming and an impending peak in the interest rate environment in the US, the outlook for the Indian equity markets is positive. It is expected that gold and equities will both perform well in the coming months, with gold that might further benefit from the anticipated economic slowdown in the US in 2024. My preferred choice for investment leans heavily toward Indian equities as the favored asset class, the Indian equity markets are poised to outshine not only gold but also other global markets,” said Sunil Nyati, Managing Director of Swastika Investmarts.
