Due to the complexities of the modern economies, parameters of setting prices of goods pertaining to different economic sectors vary widely. There was a time when gold used to be the most important part of one’s investment portfolio. Also, oil price fluctuations used to send shock-waves across the global economy. But now the situation is quite different. We have to diversify our focus. For example, the IT and the services sectors have also emerged as very important areas for investments and development.
