Gold & Precious Metals

Why buy gold?

Isn’t it just a shiny rock that sits there? What purpose does gold have? Couldn’t you better spend that money on and investment that actually pays a yield?

Gold is the ultimate fear investment. When the market panics, gold rises. When inflation looks to be rising, gold tends to increase with it.

Gold is the ultimate form of wealth protection. Here’s why.

The yellow metal acts as a hedge for your portfolio. Gold tends to hold its value through periods of uncertainty.

We are 40 years into a fiat monetary experiment. Yet gold has had a place in people’s homes for over five thousand years. Furthermore, the price of gold continues to be revalued as the total value of money in circulation grows.

The yellow stuff protects your wealth during periods of inflation. And maintains its purchasing power during deflationary periods.

Each economic crisis sees gold push to a new high.

Here, you’ll find all our articles about gold, and how the metal can help you protect and grow your portfolio over the years to come.

Is Gold Losing Its Shine to Bitcoin?
Gold has barely reacted to any of the global tensions of late. Bitcoin, on the other hand, has stolen the spotlight. Perhaps it’s become the ‘new’ gold? I doubt it. I’m not concerned about gold’s future. I still believe it will go higher when the time is right. That could happen sooner rather than later.

Why You Should Become an Electrician
You may have heard it referred to as ‘Dr Copper’. That’s because the base metal is so widely utilised that some pundits use it to measure the pulse of the world economy. The copper price has surged to its highest level in six weeks.

Gold to Take Off When the Missiles Fly
Of course, if geopolitical tensions keep climbing, gold could surge higher. But the yellow metal needs to close above the upper black horizontal line. That’s major resistance level at US$1,297 per ounce. If it clears that, gold could revisit this year’s high. That should be good news for gold stocks.

The High Stakes in Copper’s Future

Gold’s War of Words
The yellow metal’s soared 13% this year. Fundamentally, the story for gold hasn’t changed. It has rallied recently on geopolitical threats and a weaker US dollar. The US dollar remains in a downtrend and global tensions, while lessening, are still there.

Is Gold Set to Boom?
Gold’s status as a safe-haven has endured the test of time. It has been through more economic crises than any other asset and has outlived them all. It has been used as a store of value for centuries.

Forget Bitcoin…Buy Commodities Instead
I believe it’s best to stick with private assets that have stood the test of time: precious metals and commodities. They are less volatile than cryptocurrencies. Historically, commodities have outperformed during all wars. With tensions rising in North Korea and the Middle East, resource stocks are a no-brainer for now in my view.
