Gold (and Silver) is the perfect investment to make to protect your retirement account, fight inflation, and to diversify your portfolio. Invest in physical assets outside of stocks, bonds, and mutual funds.
Investing in gold has been considered to be one of the most stable and appreciating investments over the long term and gold is one of the safest investments to make during times of economic uncertainty. In addition – gold prices are expected to increase for many years to come, particularly if any of the following events occur:
• Stock Market Volatility, Declines or Failure
• Unemployment remains relatively high or increases
• Currencies fail (including foreign currencies)
• Inflation and our National Debt continues to increase
• Instability and the threat of war amongst foreign nations continues to rise
We understand that there are arguments against investing in physical gold or silver such as:
- Gold and Silver bullion and coins do not pay a dividend
- Gold and Silver prices can be volatile and make significant moves similar to what recently took place in late 2014
However, if you think about the long term nature of your investments, the importance of diversification, and optimizing your portfolio for good times and bad – most reasonable investors and professional money managers typically have at least a small portion allocated to gold or silver in the 5% – 10% range.
Why Gold is perfect for your retirement plan and investment portfolio:
Simply put – gold has been a store of value for thousands of years and has been accepted as a form of money. All currencies that have ever been in existence have failed over time with gold being the only survivor. Physical gold and other precious metals such as silver and platinum, cannot be printed, cannot be manufactured, is durable, and is accepted on a global scale as a form of currency or value. Gold is the perfect savings vehicle and can easily protect your portfolio and retirement account from major market downturns.
Investing in gold and placing a portion of your retirement savings into gold and other precious metals is a smart move no matter how you look at it. In fact, major countries like India and China have been buying gold like crazy, and many billionaire investors and hedge fund managers such as Jim Rogers, George Soros, John Paulson, and Carlos Slim, have been heavily investing in gold. Obviously, they have a strong understanding of the global markets and our current economic state and have turned to gold for good reasons. In addition, China and India alone have consumed more than 50% of the world’s gold on average for each of the past four years during 2010 – 2013.

In fact – a recent cable was leaked by the famous WikiLeaks website, which reveals the real reason behind China’s increasing ownership of gold. In short – it showed that China’s main intent is to make significant gold purchases for the purposes of weakening the U.S. Dollar.
“The U.S. and Europe have always suppressed the rising price of gold. They intend to weaken gold’s function as an international reserve currency. They don’t want to see other countries turning to gold reserves instead of the U.S. dollar or Euro. Therefore, suppressing the price of gold is very beneficial for the U.S. in maintaining the U.S. dollar’s role as the international reserve currency. China’s increased gold reserves will thus act as a model and lead other countries towards reserving more gold.” – Leaked Wikileaks Cable
Setting up an account is very easy and can be done over the phone and through email. In most cases you can easily transfer a portion or all of your existing retirement account. In order to qualify for a rollover of your existing IRA or other retirement account – you must not be employed with the original company that sponsored your retirement account. Once your account is established, which will be a self-directed IRA – it can be funded by making new contributions or from additional roll-overs. If you prefer not to use a self directed IRA account – you can always purchase precious metals on a direct basis just like thousands of investors already have.
