Nifty or Gold, Inflation Adjusted Returns Have Been Lousy for 6 Years

The real thing to note is:
  • Let’s ignore the “high” of 2007 – just to believe it was an outlier.
  • the highs of 2010 and 2015 were much higher in the Nifty, but they are actually lower in inflation adjusted terms
  • As much as it remains true that stocks should beat inflation in the longer term, have they really? Today, we are lower than the highs of 2008 by a large number. We are even lower than the highs of 2010 – and that is literallysix years of nothingness

Is Gold Becoming a Better Bet? Not By Much
