September 27th, 2012 1 comment

If you’re looking for a good return on your investment, buy gold. Why? Because gold has a strong history in preserving value even when national currencies were losing value. If the value of your current investments is being determined by depreciating currencies then it may be a good time for you to start thinking about investing in gold.

Wondering where you fit in when it comes to the ‘type’ of people who have decided to take their hard-earned money and invest it in gold? They are the people you meet in your everyday life, i.e. doctors, carpenters, teachers, and bank tellers. In fact, the next time you see your next door neighbour, ask them if they happen to be a gold investor. You just may be surprised at their answer. What we’re saying is that anyone who has an interest in investing in the gold market can become a gold investor.

6 Reasons to Invest in Gold

The following are 6 reasons why it’s a good idea to invest in gold:

1. Gold utilisation is not keeping up with global gold production. This means the price of gold is going to continue to rise as demand increases.

2. Gold is a universal form of currency. For instance, the US dollar is currently weak with no apparent end in sight due to existing economic policies. Investing in gold is a great way to increase the value of your portfolio because it is much more stable than national currencies.

3. Gold is a form of insurance, and can be separated from most capital assets that rely on someone else’s ability to pay.

4. It’s not difficult to buy or sell gold. In fact, gold can be seen as somewhat of a portable investment that you can buy and/or sell whenever you want.

5. There are lots of choices when it comes to buying gold. There are gold bars, gold coins, gold stocks, gold bullion, gold mining, etc. from which to choose from. It’s important that you recognize there are pros and cons to buying each form of gold, so be sure to do your homework so you can fully understand exactly what you’re buying.

6. Gold forms a properly diversified portfolio. At least 10% and no more than 30% of your portfolio should be comprised of hedge funds, making gold a great choice for creating a highly diversified portfolio.
