As the world is not acheiving a stable economic environment, we ought to own some gold. This is my attempt to analyse the trend and identify a good entry range.

Gold has been in an uptrend for 3 years (late 2008 to around sep 2011).
It roughly followed the blue trendline.
The more times the price bounces from the trendline, the more important it is.

Gold is approximately on the confluence of the green and red trendlines. Confluence of trendlines is the point at which two trendlines meet and is considered an important lele.

If price is unable to sustain above the confluence, it is likely to fall and hit the red trendline. If it falls, the price will come around 1450 USD per ounce. That would be a good entry point to buy gold gradually over a period of 3-6 months keeping a stoploss of 10%.

If the price sustains above the confluence, wait for its behaviour for the next three months before deciding to buy. Visit my  blog for updates.
If the red trendline is broken, the price can see a fall of 10% or more.

PPF interest rate cut to 7.9% but are other investment options better? Here's a comparison

The Public Provident Fund (PPF) will now offer 7.9% but experts say it is still a good option for investors. Given that consumer inflation is down to 3.65%, the real rate of return of the PPF is a healthy 4.25%. 

"This is quite impressive for an option that offers assured returns," says Amol Joshi, Founder, PlanRupee Investment Service. "Investors should continue to take advantage of this long-term tax-free product," he adds. 

Even if you compare the PPF rate with the 10-year government bond yield, the scheme is attractive. "The 10-year bond yield is a better benchmark for PPF than consumer inflation," says Manoj Nagpal, CEO, Outlook Asia Capital
