If you're not familiar with the value and longevity of metal investing, allow us to further explain its importance and why precious metals is the right investment for you.
Gold has been one of the most popular and enduring forms of investment for people around the world. The many advantages gold has to offer attracts all kinds of investors—from the small business owner to the financial professional to the most sophisticated investor—because gold and other precious metals fulfill a wide range of investment strategies.
Unlike paper or “soft” assets such as cash, stocks and bonds, gold and other precious metals give the buyer a tangible object of growing value. Gold has value in and of itself and is not dependent upon the backing of a financial institution, government or other third party to support its value. The value of soft assets fluctuate relative to other world currencies, while the value of gold and other precious metals depend on the forces of supply and demand. Financial advisors recommend a diversified portfolio contain both "hard” as well as “soft” assets.
As the value of the dollar goes down, as history has shown and is repeated today, the value of gold has gone up. Every day our buying power erodes, leaving us with less ability to purchase the basic necessities. Gold is one of the few assets that has an inverse relationship with the U.S. dollar, making your investment in gold more valuable. Over the long-term, gold has been shown to serve as an effective hedge against inflation.
You may be shocked to learn how horrible U.S. Stocks have performed in the last ten years. Let’s say you invested $100,000 on January 1, 2000 in the NASDAQ, your portfolio would only be worth $48,768 on Jan. 1st 2010.
Gold has out-performed Stocks with an investment of $100,000 rising to $382,521 followed by Platinum and Silver. Palladium has not seen the returns of the other precious metals but we believe it will be the star of the metals complex in the very near future. Just like any investment past performance is no guarantee of future value.
