Precious Metal Trading – The Next Frontier

Precious Metal Trading Frost International KanpurWhen people speak of precious metal trading they are usually referring to the purchase and sale of gold or silver. However, precious metal trading is not limited to simply physically buying gold or silver at a favorable time and stashing it on your safe, waiting for a good time to sell. There is another method, which involves buying Precious Metal Exchange Traded Funds (ETF).

An ETF is simply an investment fund that is traded in stock exchanges, pretty much similar to stocks. It combines the valuation feature of a mutual fund or unit investment trust, which can be bought or sold at the end of each trading day for their net asset values, with the tradability aspect of a closed-end fund, which trades throughout the trading day at prices that may be more or less than its net asset value. They make an attractive investment vehicle because they are usually low cost, tax-efficient and behave pretty much like stocks.
Precious Metal Trading Tips Frost International
ETFs take many forms and can be hold assets like stocks, commodities or bonds. An astute reader might have guessed by now that a precious metal ETF makes a subset of commodities ETFs. Oil is another big commodity ETF. In essence, a precious metal ETF’s value is tied to the current value of the metals it holds and will rise or fall depending on the behavior of the stock.

All investment is inherently risky. It’s just that the degree of risk is different depending on how aggressive you want to be with your portfolio. When it comes to precious metal trading, the values are generally stable and usually only rise with time. For this reason a investing in precious metals either physically or via a precious metal ETF, makes for a safe and attractive investment option.

It is said that all the gold in the world would fit into a cube with sides of about 21 meters. Which is a roundabout way of saying that gold is a rare and limited resource. This rarity and limitedness is what makes precious metals like gold such attractive investment vehicles. Unless there is a sudden and drastic drop in the demand for gold, you are investing in quite a safe option. And considering that gold has only increased in value in over 6,000 years of human history, you can literally say that history teaches you that precious metal trading is the way to go.

This however, does not mean you put all your investment eggs in the precious metals trading basket. The longer you invest, the more you will find there is no such thing as an absolutely safe investment. If that were true, everyone in the world would be Warren Buffet. When investing and especially when your investment journey is just beginning, it is absolutely essential to have a balanced portfolio, with investments according to the aggressiveness you desire in your portfolio. It can be a good idea to take the advice of a seasoned friend or a professional entity like Frost International. Precious metal trading, whether physically or via ETFs, can make a part of your portfolio; however, it should never be the sole investment vehicle.

Frost International is collaborating with Dream Girl Foundation, a non formal education center, for a period of 1 year to uplift the education standards of children from backward areas. It is their earnest endeavor to improve the operation by giving their valuable inputs and resources to Dream Girl Foundation. In this blog we elucidate the action plan of Frost International for the first quarter (December-February)

Dream Girl Foundation

Primary action plan would not only concern with improving the quality of education, but with nurturing and nourishment of children, and it is divided into 4 phases.

  • First, allocating children in 2 classrooms; currently the NFE center has one classroom where all students study together, leading to unequal education level of students.
    • The focus is to divide students in two groups- one group for children the age of 7 years and second group for children between the ages of 7 to 14.
    • Moreover there will be a separate teacher for each group. This will help improve the quality of education imparted to students.
  • Second, greater emphasis would be placed on teaching English language and poetry in class. It will help in building trust and empathy in students, along with promoting speaking and listening skills.
  • Third, extracurricular activities will be promoted to build mental and physical strength of children. One day of each week will be especially dedicated to teach painting, origami etc.
  • Last but not the least, extending our covered area and increasing the number of beneficiaries with the help of loudspeaker announcement in local areas.
    • Currently the center is covering almost all backward regions of Surya Vihar, and has around 40 children.
    • The target is to add many more students in next 3 months through this campaign.

Republic Day Celebration at Dream Girl Foundation

Secondary Action Plan will aim to start a drive for ‘Donation in kind’, and to introduce etiquette classes making children good Samaritans. To ensure that children remain healthy during the winters, Frost International will start a drive where people can donate their old winter clothes. Also, Frost International will encourage its employees to participate in the drive. There is a need to teach children, who are from different regions and backward families, the importance of good behavior and etiquettes. For this very purpose, a monthly lecture on Personality Development and etiquettes would be conducted.

Frost International Limited Collaborate with Dream Girl Foundation

It is of paramount importance that there is a regular check on the quality of education and overall development of children. Keeping that in mind, general public would be allowed to visit the center on special occasions where they can interact freely with children. Moreover, Employees of Frost International will visit the center every Saturday to teach students and will give feedback to management on the progress of the students. On this republic day, employees of Frost International visited the center to spend quality time with the children. They hoisted the flag with children, and witnessed their dance performances. Along with that, they had a quality interaction with children to map their progress.

A campaign to spread awareness about the campaign would be run on multiple social media platforms. It will help in getting support and increase the reach of our initiative, which will assist us in uplifting the future of more children from these backward areas.

It’s a tough task to execute it, but the collaboration between Dream Girl Foundation and Frost International, would leave no stone unturned to make it a success. After all, the future of children depends on it.

Jammu & Kashmir Relief Fund

Frost International is also in a partnership with Uday Foundation, one of India’s largest volunteer based non-governmental organisations, through which it volunteered in the J&K flood relief efforts.

Torrential rains had caused massive destruction and severe distress in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Several houses, especially in low lying areas, were damaged or entirely washed away. More than 2,500 major and minor roads were damaged, numerous footbridges washed away and more than 100 motorable bridges damaged. During this time there was massive need for immediate medication as a number of people were suffering from various waterborne diseases.

To aid support, Frost International provided medications to serve more than 500 people. This was spearheaded by Mr.Rahul Verma, Founder of Uday Foundation who made sure that the required medicines reach the most critical patients in no time.

Reducing the Carbon Footprint

Besides aid and charity, Frost International is also keen on leaving a clean and green earth for future generations. In pursuit of this goal, we have setup a wind power generation project in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu, to promote sustainable development.

The 4.25 MW wind project is registered under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC).The CDM allows emission-reduction projects in developing countries to earn certified emission reduction (CER) credits, each equivalent to one tonne of CO2. These CERs can be traded and sold, and used by industrialized countries to a meet a part of their emission reduction targets under the Kyoto Protocol. This mechanism stimulates sustainable development and emission reductions.

The Tamil Nadu project reduces 7,753 ton carbon dioxide emissions annually and is eligible to earn carbon credits from December 03, 2012. The emission reduction will assist global attempts to reduce global warming and avoid climate change.
