Reasons to Invest In Gold

January 4th, 2010 No comments

Peter August was recently interviewed by Exponential Growth Strategist Dr Marc Dussault for a series of YouTube videos explaining gold and silver investment strategies and why anyone who wants to increase their wealth should consider gold and silver bullion to protect their investment portfolio. Today’s 4-minute video briefly explains the reasons to invest in gold.

Reasons to Invest In Gold


Hi, I’m Dr Marc Dussault and I’m here with Peter August of Australian Bullion Company.  And the reason we created this YouTube video is I’ve been talking with Peter for quite a while that a lot of people think that gold investment is only for rich people.  So we just want to take 2 or 3 minutes very briefly and you’re gonna see the big words that Peter is gonna be pulling out of the thesaurus today.

I’ll try to keep them small.

Now this is just take 2 of this YouTube video by the way and take 1 was quite funny; and we went through a few points but let’s get started.  First of all there are 105 ounces here on the table and you can see the size cause this is just a regular blackberry mobile phone.  This is 20, 20, 20, 10, 10, 10, 10 and this is five 1 ounce gold coins.

Gold bars.

I’m sorry, gold bars.  So this is what it actually looks like, that’s what it sounds like.  And it’s actually very heavy; it’s an amazing thing to actually touch.  How much is this actually worth by the way?  What we actually have on the table here.

We’ve got well over $120,000. Read more…

Peter August On The Gold Price


It has soared to record highs on news that India’s Central Bank has bought 200 tons of it from the International Monetary Fund.  The 6.7 billion dollar purchase over the last 2 weeks of October surprised the markets.

It was the biggest single central bank purchase over such a short period in the last 30 years.  The price of gold jumped by more than US$30 to an all time high of $1,087 an ounce.  The country has until now has been the biggest consumer of the precious metal, primarily because of its deep seated affection for jewelry and gold ornaments.  Experts say India’s interest in diversifying into bullion is a sign that gold’s run has only just begun.

For a while there had been a sort of a philosophy that gold no longer was relevant in a modern society, but with all the printing of money that is going on around the world gold has become the ultimate safe haven and has become the safe asset of choice, not only by individuals but by central banks.

The change of attitude appears to be due to a shift in strategy by investors to hedge against a weaker dollar and the threat of inflation.  It also heightens speculation that there may be more official purchases.

The Chinese we know are very worried about holding so much US denominated debt and cash.  You’ve got the Middle East petro dollars that need to be recycled into a store of wealth that they can rely upon.  There’ll be no shortage of takers.

The IMF plans to sell about 400 metric tons of gold this year in an effort to shore up its finances and increase lending to developing countries.  India’s purchase represents about half of that amount.  The question now is who will buy the rest of the IMF gold.
