As major proponents of physical precious metals ownership, we often discuss reasons why we feel it is in your best interest to acquire and hold physical precious metals such as gold and silver.
While we can list numerous reasons for our opinion on the matter, we also felt it might make sense to address why we believe you simply cannot afford not to own physical gold, silver or ideally both. The three reasons listed below are in our view very legitimate concerns, especially in the current economic environment. Ignore them at your own peril:
1. The Dollar May Continue To Lose Value
The idea of fiat or paper currencies losing value over time is nothing new and nothing earth-shattering. Throughout history, paper money has lost value with the passage of time-and all of the money printing seen in recent years is not going to help. As your paper money loses value, your purchasing power declines. In the simplest of terms, this means that goods and services get relatively more expensive.
2. Investment Returns May Yield Little Compared To The Past
Some have referred to it as the “new normal.” Others might simply refer to it as stagflation. Whatever you want to call it: The current outlook for global economic growth appears to be stagnant and an era of below-average economic growth appears to be upon us. What might this mean? Well, for starters, investors may have to look elsewhere for yield. Stocks will, if they haven’t already, eventually run out of gas. Interest rates are likely to remain very subdued for some time to come. Investors will have to look elsewhere…We feel that a logical choice for many investors will be hard, physical assets like gold, silver, and other commodities.
3. There Could Be Significant Changes Seen In The Global Balance Of Power
Although the dollar still enjoys its status as the world’s reserve currency of choice, that status is becoming weaker with the passage of time. With the recent admission of the Chinese Yuan by the IMF to its Special Drawing Rights (SDR), China could potentially be in a position for its currency to gain more favor and eventually challenge the dollar as the global reserve currency of choice. This could potentially have very far-reaching effects on the U.S. dollar as well as global trade as we know it today.
Physical precious metals like gold and silver have been considered a reliable store of wealth and protector of value for centuries. In fact, we feel these assets are the only true form of real money in existence.
Isn’t it time you got some?
There are a lot of potential economic and geopolitical issues that could change the way global trade is done and as such some major changes could potentially be seen in global currency and interest rate markets. Isn’t it time you began acquiring and holding hard, physical assets that may potentially gain in value during such a period while also possibly providing an effective hedge against a loss of purchasing power? Isn’t it time you began acquiring and holding physical gold and silver?
