All About Retirement….
July 15, 2009
(ARA) – The U.S. dollar continues to decline in value and fears about inflation are growing faster than previously expected. In a short period of time, Americans have lost trillions from their investment portfolios and retirement accounts, thus many are looking for a safe investment in a difficult economy.
For centuries, gold has been a reliable and solid investment, and since 2001, the value of gold has increased 300 percent. Investors who want to protect their hard-earned wealth from the floundering stock market, fluctuating dollar and uncertainty of real estate are flocking to gold because it’s a safe-haven asset with a solid history of wealth preservation and profit.
Some of the advantages of investing in gold include:
- While gold does not earn interest, the price appreciation could more than make up for it.
- Gold production cannot match demand, causing the price to increase due to lower supply.
- Gold funds have reached historic highs in recent years and are still climbing.
- Economic forces that affect other assets are different than those determining the price of gold. Gold helps reduce risk in your investment portfolio.
- Gold can easily be converted to cash.
“Investors seeking short-term profit should look into modern-day gold bullion products,” says John Halloran, senior advisor at the Certified Gold Exchange — North America’s premier precious metals trading platform. “When mainstream investments like stocks and bonds aren’t doing well, many investors choose to diversify into bullion products. Bullion is a debt-free, physical possession asset that you own outright and has a low premium.”
“Long-term, preservation-seeking investors should consider certified gold coins,” says Halloran. “Certified gold coins have historically proven to profit at higher ratios than bullion, while at the same time their non-government confiscation status leaves investors with peace of mind and instant liquidity during the worst of times.
The Certified Gold Exchange only buys and sells the most widely traded bullion bars, bullion coins and certified gold coins with free next day delivery to your door.
