Why invest in gold?
“Why should I own gold in my IRA?”
It all comes down to a few simple reasons: 1) Protection, 2) true diversification and 3) profit potential. Gold can reduce the overall volatility of your portfolio and help you create a dependable, stable and lucrative future for yourself, your loved ones and even future generations.
Let’s have a look at a recent example of protection and true diversification. In 2010, poor stock market performance, poor savings rates and financial crises had caused retirement savings account values to fall so low that 3 out of 4 Americans nearing retirement had less than $30,000 in their retirement accounts, which Forbes called “the greatest retirement crisis in American history“. This could, and will, happen again. Quoting Forbes:
Americans today are aware that corporate pensions have been virtually eliminated and that the few remaining private, as well as the nation’s public pensions, are in jeopardy. Even if you are among the lucky few that have a pension, you cannot rest assured that it will be there for all the years you’ll need it.
How about diversification? Look at the chart below from Reuters. Opposed to crashing and loosing its value in 2008-2010 an investment in Gold would actually instead have yielded a real and healthy profit.
While other investments flounder, gold and other precious metals offer the comfort and security of physical possession, intrinsic value, accessibility and ease of liquidity worldwide. Take a look at this chart:
