Any other asset type, such as shares or real estate, would fall if gold increased. As a result, it is considered a haven asset.
How to check the purity of gold?
Before buying gold, evaluate its purity, which is measured in carats, with 24 carats being the purest. 24K gold is pliable and liquid, and to become stronger, it must be alloyed with other metals. For example, 22k gold is made up of 22 parts gold (91.6 percent) and 2 parts other metals. The purer the gold, the higher the price.
