Wild stock market swings, the shrinking dollar, terrorism, unsustainable Federal deficit, fragile global economy, plummeting 401(k) and IRA values – how does an individual find financial security for the future in such tenuous economic times?
Buying gold is as far away as you can get from today’s complex investment products. Traditionally, physical gold is one of the safest investments you can own, as all risk of default by any other entity is eliminated.
Simple, tangible gold assets increase in value in times of economic turmoil, terrorism, war, inflation, and market uncertainty. Consider that from April 2009 to October 2011, gold went from $885 to over $1,600 per ounce, a staggering 81% increase. And according to many experts, gold prices are expected to reach $2,000 per ounce in the next twelve to eighteen months.
While the purchasing power of the dollar over the last two hundred years has declined dramatically due to manipulation and removal of the gold backing from currencies worldwide, the value of gold has proven to be very stable, with purchasing power that has remained the same or even improved. For example, in the 1920s, both a $20 bill and a $20 gold coin would buy a tailor-made suit.
Today, that same gold coin (now worth over $1,600) will still buy a nice suit, but the $20 bill won’t even buy a decent tie. Gold value doesn’t rely on accounting tricks, the whims of the stock market, new business investment, or consumer spending. It is simply a precious asset that for more than 5,000 years, people throughout the world have used as a store of wealth.
When you buy gold, it also offers immediate accessibility and liquidity for any emergency. No one has a crystal ball, but it is evident that we cannot trust Wall Street for financial security. It simply makes sense to put your financial future in the safest asset available – physical gold.
