Why You Must Invest In Gold Today


Gold. Rare, beautiful, and unique. Treasured as a store of value for thousands of years, it is an important and secure asset. It has maintained its long term value, is not directly affected by the economic policies of individual countries and doesn't depend on a "promise to pay".


Completely free of credit risk, although it bears a market risk gold has always been a secure refuge in unsettled times. Its safe haven attributes attract wise investors. Gold has proved itself to be an effective way to manage wealth.


For at least 200 years the price of gold has kept pace with inflation. Another important reason to invest in gold is its consistent delivery within a portfolio of assets. Its performance tends to move independently of other investments and of key economic indicators. Even a small weighting of gold in an investment portfolio can help reduce overall risk.


Most investment portfolios are invested primarily in traditional financial assets such as stocks and bonds. The reason for holding diverse investments is to protect the portfolio against fluctuations in the value of any single asset class.


Portfolios that contain gold are generally more robust and better able to cope with market ncertainties than those that don't. Adding gold to a portfolio introduces an entirely different class of asset.


Gold is unusual because it is both a commodity and a monetary asset. It is an "effective diversifier" because its performance tends to move independently of other investments and key economic indicators.


Studies have shown that traditional diversifiers (such as bonds and alternative assets) often fail during times of market stress or instability. Even a small allocation of gold has been proven to significantly improve the consistency of portfolio performance during both stable and unstable financial periods.


Gold improves the stability and predictability of returns. It is not correlated with other assets because the gold price is not driven by the same factors that drive the performance of other assets. Gold is also significantly less volatile than practically all equity indices.


The value of gold, in terms of real goods and services that it can buy, has remained remarkably stable. In contrast, the purchasing power of many currencies has generally declined.


Traditionally, access to the gold market has been through: investment in physical gold, usually as gold coins or small bars,or, for larger quantities, by way of the over the counter market; gold futures and options; gold mining equities, often packaged in gold-oriented mutual funds.

Gold Quotes

    Gold was not selected arbitrarily by governments to be the monetary standard. Gold had developed for many centuries on the free market as the best money; as the commodity providing the most stable and desirable monetary medium.
    -Murray N. Rothbard


    The history of fiat money is little more than a register of monetary follies and inflations. Our present age merely affords another entry in this dismal register.
    -Hans F. Sennholz


    As fewer and fewer people have confidence in paper as a store of value, the price of gold will continue to rise.
    -Jerome F. Smith


    Those entrapped by the herd instinct are drowned in the deluges of history. But there are always the few who observe, reason, and take precautions, and thus escape the flood. For these few gold has been the asset of last resort.
    -Antony C. Sutton


    For more than two thousand years gold's natural qualities made it man's universal medium of exchange. In contrast to political money, gold is honest money that survived the ages and will live on long after the political fiats of today have gone the way of all paper.
    -Hans F. Sennholz


    When paper money systems begin to crack at the seams, the run to gold could be explosive.
    -Harry Browne


    In a country whose currency is not convertible into gold, inflation leads to its continuous devaluation in terms of foreign currencies.
    -Michael A. Heilperin


    Until government administrators can so identify the interests of government with those of the people and refrain from defrauding the masses through the device of currency depreciation for the sake of remaining in office, the wiser ones will prefer to keep as much of their wealth in the most stable and marketable forms possible - forms which only the precious metals provide.
    -Elgin Groseclose
