Insights:

Limitations in traditional gold investment

  • Ease of trading– even though there are many gold retailers, but the stores don’t open 24/7
  • Security of storing– the physical gold requires a great amount of cost and there is also a risk of being stolen.
  • Minimum of trading– gold trading previously specified trading units such as one baht or one satang (quarter of a baht). Buyer cannot buy 1/3 satang, therefore, investors who don’t have much funds could not invest in gold.

Advantages of gold

  • Jewelry Industry– gold is popular as a beautiful accessory representing wealth due to its natural beauty until present. 
  • Fiscal economic stability– many countries still use gold as their international reserves as governments around the world continually print out bank notes leading to an inflation or the decrease in value of money. On the other hand, gold owes its status as a precious metal to its rarity, thus many countries choose gold as a mean of protection of their country’s wealth by reserving a large amount of them.
  • Other utilities– gold also provides some advantages to other industries such as the electronic industry, transportation, telecommunications, and medical industries as well.
