Experts believe that due to the continuous upheaval in the global economy including America, the international market is working under pressure. The possibility of a debt crisis, especially in the US, has put American investors in a state of confusion, which has also affected the world gold market. The ups and downs in the world gold market naturally have an impact on the Indian market as well. In such a situation, there is a possibility of continuous volatility in the Indian market at present. Therefore, at present, instead of making big investments in the market, small and retail investors should adopt a policy of making small investments on every major decline.
