Is Investing In Gold A Safe Bet?

Is Investing In Gold A Safe Bet?Millions of people around the world spend their days working hard, sometimes doing backbreaking labour, to provide for their family.

Others take what they have, and invest; and there are dozens of opportunities on the market. But, only one that has stood the test of time.

Some choose stocks or bonds; others invest in real estate or currencies, but only precious metals, especially Gold, return a real, safe investment.

MoneyWeek, the one of Europe’s largest selling financial advice magazines, said; “We’ve been tipping gold since 200

1. In that time it went from [US]$250 to [US]$1,900 an ounce in 2011 (a 660% increase), hitting record highs each year since 2002.” (1)

In recent years, we’ve seen headline after headline describe the falling value of the US$, and, when the US economy eventually fails, personal wealth will be wiped out with it. Investing in this stuff is more than just making a profit, it’s ensuring you, your finances, and your family have financial security.

Tell Me, Why Invest In Gold?

1) The world’s fastest growing economies are buying as much as possible. The international governing body the World Gold Council (W.G.C.), reports: “Bar and coin investment grew by 78% globally compared to the same quarter last year, topping 500t in a quarter for the first time.

In China, demand for gold bars and coins surged 157% compared with the same quarter last year, while in India it jumped 116% to a record 122t. Taking jewellery demand and bar and coin investment together, global consumer demand totalled 1,083t in the quarter, 53% higher than a year ago” (2).

2) The US$ is the world’s global currency, but for how long? The economy is crumbling under massive debts, and even the government of the most powerful nation on the planet was shut down for weeks while they bickered about finances.

When, not if, paper commodities fail, the money invested in this precious metal will remain safe. Other nations know this, the Times of India reported; “Gold prices touched all-time high” (3), and this is why they are buying Gold in record amounts.

3) The Central Banks rely on a fine tuned network with others; it is a precarious balance at best. It is a well-accepted principle of global economics, that those that have the power to manipulate the monetary supply have the greatest influence over it; not the nation’s productivity or GDP.

The safest way to protect against the downturn of these powers, and shield yourself, your finances, and your future from recessions, depressions, and crumbling economic systems, is to invest in a commodity that does not tarnish. The W.G.C. explains; “the demand and supply dynamics of the gold market underpin the precious metal’s extensive appeal and functionality” (4).

Governments around the world are investing in this metal, because they know that soon the US, and the currencies of other emerging global superpowers will lock horns, and engage in a raging war. When one loses, the economic effects will be felt by millions. By investing in precious metal commodities, nations are building a buffer again the impending damage.

    I’ve considered investing in gold. I’ve been reading about the trends and values and it does indeed seem to be a safe investment, especially if you’re able to buy it when the price is low.

    There’s some risk associated with all investments, but gold has stood the test of time and is globally recognized.

    I know many say gold is too risky or that it isn’t a wise long term investment but I beg to differ.

    Gold is high on the list when I think of top investment opportunities. The price of gold, like anything else, does fluctuate but it’s one of the few things that has historically retained its value.

    I’ve heard gold described as “wealth insurance” because its value will hold steady when other investments falter. I’m not wealthy, and I don’t feel that I can hope to be. I don’t think gold is for me but I do think it’s a great investment for those who have money they wish to protect and see grow.

    My husband and I invest in gold. I think it’s a very safe investment provided you go into it knowing what to expect. We have an excellent financial adviser who was able to answer all our questions and walk us through the entire process from start to finish. I have absolutely no complaints and I’m glad we did it.

    My grandparents were fairly wealthy and I know they invested a good sum of their money into gold. My grandfather said it’s a good idea to break up your assets and that you always want something to fall back on – in his case it was gold.

    It’s definitely a good investment.
