Gold & Silver: The Hottest Economic Commodity Right Now

Share

The U.S. dollar is a form of fiat currency, meaning it is created and controlled by our government. New money is constantly being printed and put into circulation every day. However, these actions mean the dollar decreases in value and is therefore hard to stabilize. The value of the dollar stems from our government’s ability to regulate it. Contrary to popular belief the U.S. dollar is not backed by any real commodity, which is why constant shifts in its value occur. The United States currently has a never ending stream of debt that is increasing with each passing day.

Gold and Silver, the non-fiat options

The unpredictability of our nation’s currency has left many people to consider non-fiat options such as gold or silver. Unlike printed currency, gold and silver are metals derived from the Earth. Real gold and silver cannot be mass-produced in the same way that paper currency can. Gold can always be recycled but its original supply is not subject to human interference in the same manner in which paper currency can be affected. As a result, gold and silver are stable enough to stand against inflation, devaluation, and other financial stressors that markets can create. Those seeking to bulk up their 401k or traditional IRA should strongly consider switching to a precious metal IRA so that they benefit from the hedge created by gold or silver.
The dollar is a paper currency that has been subject to deflation at an alarming rate over the last few years. Therefore, many people are considering gold or silver as viable options for their long term financial security. Gold and silver are both considered solid financial investments for those seeking to retire comfortably or provide for their loved ones in the event they can no longer do so. Placing your wealth and assets into gold or silver commodities is a great way to diversify and spread risk amongst any investment portfolio. Furthermore, those interest in buying gold and silver for investment purposes will find comfort in the fact that such purchases are typically accompanied by Certificates of Authenticity.

International affairs and the dollar’s value

The United States is a key player in world affairs. Over the years, our nation has been involved in many international and global conflicts. During wartime, the dollar has always decreased in value. The volatility of American politics and government means that our continued involvement in such affairs is likely to occur as terrorism continues to affect the economic market. From an economic standpoint, this means that people are likely to see consumer goods and commodities rise in price. Mediocre job reports further dampen the economic outlook as people are consuming less of American manufactured goods and products. If you are in possession of gold or silver you can come out a real winner due to the substantial profits these investment items can offer.

Protecting investment portfolios with gold and silver

Investors benefit economically in that they are safely shielded against stock market crashes or other economic failures that can easily consume traditional capital ventures. The dollar is far too weak to overcome the devastating impacts that such incidents can cause in a timely manner. Furthermore, the government will only respond in the worst way possible: circulating more cash. Recovery from such economic ruin may take years that you cannot afford to waste. The responsible person knows that his or her economic vitality can only be strengthened or secured through gold or silver investments. That is why you need to add gold or silver to your new or existing investment portfolio right away.

Why it is the best time to invest in precious metals

To truly understand the amazing potential of precious metals you must consider that sixty percent of the growth that has occurred with gold happened in 2009 to 2012. This huge surge in growth means that gold and silver is the best economic commodity in terms of value. Economic experts predict that gold and silver will continue to rise as time goes on. Don’t sit and wait for economic down turn to hit you hard! Ensure your financial longevity by obtaining the many benefits that these precious metals have to offer you. Silver prices have fallen to an all-time low and there has been no better time to get into the market then right now. However, the secret will not last forever so act now!

Gold’s Role In Your Portfolio

Share

shutterstock_95115148Asset allocation strategy — sounds a little tricky to most investors, when really it is quite simple. Think of it as your total investment portfolio divided into a mix of different types of assets and asset classes reflecting your investment goals and risk tolerance. One of the keys to a successful mix is to hold assets that historically do not all move in the same direction either up or down at the same time, thereby “balancing” your portfolio. Ideally, when some assets are in a decline, others are performing well, mitigating your losses.

Some asset allocation strategies take a weighting approach that requires you to continually rebalance your portfolio. In this scenario, you would buy more of an asset declining in value, and sell an asset that is increasing beyond a previously determined percent of return or loss. Obviously in this scenario, timing is important and “rebalancing” is continuously required to maintain an ideal mix, bringing us to the subject of gold. Continue reading our market analysis

4 Reasons to Hold Onto Your Gold

Share

us-debtLiving in the age of immediate gratification, instant information, and faster and easier access to just about everything, it seems we are losing our ability to be patient.

Even though we all know that “good things come to those who wait” and “patience is a virtue”, it seems we have become very impatient, especially where our investments are concerned. Some people persistently choose investments providing immediate gratification versus larger, long-term profit potential, and this can be especially damaging to your retirement. However, buying gold and other precious metals consistently over time, also known as dollar cost averaging, can really pay off over the long term. Buying gold and silver incrementally, and especially when the market is down, results in you owning more when your metals eventually regain greater value.

Is Gold Set to Rally?

Share

Gold prices climbed to a three-week high of over $1,200 an ounce Friday, reacting to news of China cutting benchmark interest rates to help stimulate economic growth. Making more than a six percent gain this month on increasing physical demand and signs of nations adding to their reserves, some are convinced that gold has hit its bottom.

Peter Boockvar, Chief Economic Analyst at The Lindsey Group, is one market guru who just called gold’s recent dips a bottom for gold.

He stands behind gold as a true form of currency:

Bottom line, gold is money and is not just a contra dollar play, it is a contra fiat currency asset in a world where fiat currencies are being created to an extent the world has never seen.

5 MAJOR BANKS FINED BILLIONS FOR RIGGING FOREX MARKETS

Share

no trustWe are all aware of some of the drawbacks of paper currencies, and over the last several years, we have seen how currencies can be inflated, deflated, overprinted, and devalued. But the latest jaw-dropping news is about currency manipulation, and it’s not just a notion.

Global regulators have fined five banking giants $4.2 billion for attempting to manipulate foreign exchange markets. British banks HSBC and RBS (Royal Bank of Scotland), US banks Citigroup and JPMorgan Chase, and Swiss lender UBS, have all been fined by one or more of the following regulators: Britain’s Financial Conduct Authority, the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority, and the US Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.

The Financial Conduct Authority reported that “ineffective controls” at these five banks (with Barclays still under investigation) allowed traders to put the banks’ interests and their own bonuses ahead of those of their clients. Continue reading our market analysis

Get On Your Own Gold Standard

Share

James RickardsIn a recent article, Pentagon insider and bestselling author, James Rickards explains the importance of starting your own, personal gold standard by including physical gold in your long-term savings plan. Establishing financial independence from the actions of the government and central banks is critical to the survival of your hard-earned savings.

“If some scenarios play out, you are going to see the price of gold go up… a lot. And it may go up a lot in a very short period of time. It’s not going to go up 10% per year for seven years and the price doubles. It’s going to chug along sideways, maybe in an upward trend, with a lot of volatility. It will have a kind of a slow grind upward… and then a spike… and then another spike… and then a super-spike. The whole thing could happen in a matter of 90 days — six months at the most.”
—James Rickards

Investment Manager Says Hold Onto Your Gold

Share

In a recent article published on FE Trustnet, Thomas Becket, chief investment officer at Psigma Investment Management, stresses that now is NOT the time to sell your gold. He believes that today’s low price levels and the anticipated geopolitical events standing on the horizon present a tremendous buying opportunity for investors. In fact, he’s confident in saying that…

Gold’s benefits will eventually shine through.

And…

In the short term the price can certainly fall further, but looking further out we expect gold to gain.

He expects gold to gain for these 3 reasons:

  • The same reason gold performed so well 2008–2011 — inflation and instability.
  • Japan and Europe accelerating their stimulus measures with excessive money printing.
  • Increasing demand for gold amongst consumers and central banks in ’emerging nations’, particularly in Asia.

A Resurgence in Demand May Be a Turning Point for Gold

Share

Gold made its biggest one-day gain in five months on Friday, climbing more than 2% in a $30 jump, closing higher than $1,170 per ounce. The surge is due to a weaker dollar and a mediocre jobs report.

Recent low price levels have been very attractive to buyers in China and India, where Bloomberg suspects a great resurgence in demand “may signal an end to the longest price slump in more than a decade.”
