The price of the sovereign bonds is predeterminely fixed by the Government at the issue of the Sovereign Gold Bonds issue. These have maturity period of 8 Years but can be encashed in secondary market; at lower rate before 5 Years of the maturity period

3.Gold ETF’s- These are traded at the stock market where one has to need “Demat” a/c to invest in Gold ETF’s. They are traded at the availing market price at that moment where one can grab the “Traded Price” as per his wish.
