Every time hyperinflation rips through an economy, the middle class gets completely wiped out. It is very alarming to watch the purchasing power of an entire life savings reduced to that of a few pennies. Those savings represent years of real labor, real time, effort and sacrifice exchanged for corruptible pieces of paper that politicians and bankers can destroy at whim.

Three Good Reasons to Own Precious Metals Now

Investment experts have long-recommend portfolio diversification and that 10% to 20% (and sometimes more) of an investor's assets be devoted to tangible assets such as gold , silver and platinum bullion and bullion coins. That's prudent asset diversification strategy at any time. But in today's uncertain political and economic environment, there are many (and very sound) reasons to consider investing in precious metals now. Here are three:

  1. Precious metals have been a solid hedge against a declining U.S. dollar
    The value of the U.S. Dollar declined more than 30% from 2001 through 2004, plunging 5% in just a few weeks. For a long list of reasons, including massive increases in U.S. government deficits totaling trillions of dollars, the cost of a prolonged war against terrorism and a massive trade imbalance, this trend may be just the beginning. This means U.S. Dollars could now be worth less and less every day. Which also means that investments pegged to the U.S. Dollar could be worth less and less every day. Gold, silver and platinum, though, are held and traded throughout the world...and their true value (that is, their purchasing power) is not solely or directly dependent on the falling fortunes of the U.S. Dollar. Precious metals, therefore, can be a form of protection against a falling U.S. Dollar. As demonstrated during 2003 and 2004, as the value of the U.S. Dollar declined, gold and silver prices and the value of precious metals expressed in dollars increased.

  2. Precious metals have been a proven safe-haven in times of war, political strife and uncertainty
    Today's financial markets are increasingly at risk from terrorism, political instability and war. As we saw so after the 9/11 tragedy, financial markets can be closed down, and remain closed down, for extended periods of time. As terrorism incidents continue to increase around the world, it is not unreasonable to expect further (and potentially more severe) disruptions in financial markets, banking and commerce in the future. Whenever and wherever tension or hostilities break out, people everywhere quite naturally gravitate toward the assets they trust most. And today, even in our high-tech-driven 21st century, the asset class millions rely on in times of trouble is gold and silver. Precious metals have always been, and likely will continue to be, a valued form of "wealth insurance" in good times and bad.

  3. Precious metals can offer outstanding price appreciation and profit potential

    Between early April of 2001 and early September of 2011, the price of gold increased from a low of approximately $250 per ounce to a high of nearly $1,900 per ounce – an increase of over 600% in about 10-1/2 years. During a similar time period, from late November of 2001 to late April of 2011, the price of silver increased from a low of approximately $4.00 per ounce to a high of over $48.00 per ounce – an increase of over 1,100% in just 9-1/2 years. These are just two examples of the long-term profit potential possible in the precious metals markets. Also notable is that recently, there have been periods of significant price volatility in the precious metals markets where prices have moved suddenly and dramatically, both higher and lower. In such volatile times, precious metals can produce impressive short-term investment returns as well. Robert James knows a way to buy, sell and trade precious metals using up to 4-to-1 investment leverage, It can be a powerful short-term trading vehicle during periods of rapidly changing precious metals prices. And many financial experts have predicted and continue to forecast volatile gold, silver, platinum and palladium prices in the months and years ahead.


Gold Fever

While the value of the dollar has dropped like a stone, gold predictably stays constant and holds its own. Between 1971 and 1980, a decade of inflation, gold’s purchasing power rose 15 times in real terms, and far surpassed other classes of assets. From 1929 to 1934 gold’s purchasing power rose 17 times during deflation. Gold – providing it’s physically owned- tends to do much better than a currency during deflation. The reason being that deflation kills debtors indiscriminately, which is very bad for both depositors and bond holders.

According to the Minneapolis Federal Reserve, since 1935, the dollar has lost 93.5% of its purchasing power. But take a look at how well gold has held up:

In 1935, when an ounce of gold was worth $35, you could buy:

  • a top-quality tailored suit for $19.75 – or 0.56 ounces of gold
  • a family car for $500 – or 14.3 ounces of gold
  • a house for $7,150 – or 204.2 ounces of gold

Today, with gold at $1,060 an ounce:

  • that same top-quality, tailored suit costs $600 – or 0.56 ounces of gold
  • the family car now costs $15,000 – or 14.2 ounces of gold
  • the house averages $181,100* – or 204.6 ounces of gold*

*average house price from 2008 / gold at 2008 price of $880/ounce

Gold is normally a hedge against inflation and financial catastrophe, but at present investors are so preoccupied with the financial meltdown and the short-term weakness in the economy, that they’re ignoring the coming inflation. This maybe a great time to take a position in undervalued, low-cost producers of gold.

Bob Tonachio

Low cost mining companies with small to no hedge positions should benefit from growing gold demand and rising gold prices. And if inflation does start to rear its ugly head again, gold should be the place to be.

There’s certain to be a rush into gold and silver. Taking a position before Main Street catches gold fever is the way to profit big from this trend.

When Gold fever hits, prices will explode to the upside, for both the metals and the stocks. let’s look at total gold. If we added up all the gold ever mined on earth, its total value would equal no more than $5 trillion at today’s prices. Let’s look at how this compares to the debt, bailouts and other monetary mischief of current governments…

Of the $5 trillion in gold ever mined…The U.S. government has thrown over twice as much at the economy in the past 12 months. The U.S. debt is more than double this amount so far this year. Total global government bailouts are almost four times larger (and this is a conservative figure; one estimate puts it at $24 trillion).

To Late To Buy Gold ?

At the present time very few average American investors and or their “advisors” know much about gold. Unlike the foreign central banks that are aggressively buying gold to protect themselves against the falling dollar. During the early 1980’s, one had a simple decision to make… Short term money paid nearly 20% a year, and longer-term bonds paid close to 12%. One could even borrow on a credit card at 7% and loan it back to a bank in the form of a CD for 18%.. In those days our country and our dollar, were still the country and the currency of the world's largest creditor. We did not have to borrow billions every day from non-Americans in order to finance our debts. The U.S.A. was a very different country, and had a very different currency, than the USD today.

Bob Tonachio

18% on three-month Treasury bills was available in the early 1980’s. Last week T-bill rates were negative: You had to pay the Treasury to buy their treasury bills. So today we no longer have the alternatives we had then.

During the gold bull market of 1979, almost every knowledgeable person you knew was buying gold and silver. Then Paul Volcker moved into the Fed. When he instituted his new policies to control inflation that were announced in October 1979, we saw escalating interest rates on the USD... It was time to start switching out of gold into the strong dollar. In the 1970’s the Fed lost control and inflation soared to 18%. Gold advanced from $130 to a high of $850 in 1980. Investors who got into gold early made profits of 550%... Enough to turn $100,000 into $650,000. Investors in most gold stocks did even better, with profits of 800% to 1,000%... Meanwhile the Dow was down 23% over the same period. Gold prices soared in response to monetary expansion and budget deficits that were miniscule compared to today. Jimmy Carter’s largest budget deficit was $60 billion… practically a rounding error in Obama’s $3.5 trillion budget. Gold prices fell in anticipation of President Reagan’s tightening of monetary policy, lowering marginal tax rates and reducing the size and cost of government. … However, things are much, much worse today and there is no Ronald Reagan to turn things around. So it is a given why gold bullion has soared 376% since 2000. By contrast the Dow is down 39% over the same period. A $100,000 investment in gold bullion in 2000 would now be worth $467,700.

The Same $100,000 in the Dow would be worth a mere $65,000. The HUI Index of major gold mining companies has soared 1,262% since 2000.. Enough to turn $100,000 into $1,362,000. Adjusted for inflation, gold would have to go to $2,189… double today’s price… Merrill Lynch predicts gold to go to $1,500… Citigroup says… $2,000 and UBS predicts $2,500. Today, millions of Chinese and Indians, as well as their governments, are getting out of the declining U.S. dollar and into gold.

Gold Is The Ultimate Hedge

Gold is purchased and held in huge volumes all over the world by central banks of many major nations, thousands of large and small institutions and millions of private individuals. Gold is money and is the ultimate store of value and safety. Gold has held this position for thousands of years, long before there was paper (fiat) money. Gold has protected the wealth of peoples, institutions and governments throughout all the chaos and turmoil associated with paper money, inflation and deflation, wars, revolutions and natural disasters. Governments cannot debase gold as the ultimate store of value as they can with paper money, and they generally cannot confiscate or tax it. Gold is one of the only true stores of value, and it has significant advantages over other property or assets, such as real estate, which to some degree also represent a store of value. An ounce of gold has held its value and has remained stable throughout history. Physical assets, goods or property which cost an ounce of gold a thousand years ago or fifty years ago still cost about one ounce today. Whatever variations there have been in gold’s value, those variations are vastly less damaging and risky than paper money. It is paper money which is tremendously unstable and a serious risk to one’s wealth. For example, in 1971 a U.S. dollar was worth 1/35th of an ounce of gold, but today it is only worth 1/1,000th of an ounce of gold (assuming a price of US $1,000 per ounce).

From a historical perspective, the only question about the stability of the U.S. dollar and most all other paper money is how quickly the paper money will lose value, not whether it will continue to lose value. The worldwide economic turmoil which began in late 2007, the threats from radical Islamists and other major political instability, the potential spread of nuclear weapons into unsafe hands, global climate change, the ever diminishing supply of oil, etc., these issues virtually guarantee that gold will become much more important as the ultimate store of value and for paper money to become even more unstable, inflated and debased. That is, the price of gold in dollar terms is highly likely to rise far into the future, and to do so dramatically.

Gold has tremendous upside pricing potential, due to the factors stated above, with little downside risk. It is both an inflation and a deflation hedge as well as being highly liquid. Gold can be either exchanged directly for other property or cashed in easily and is universally recognized as money everywhere in the world, there are no exchange rate issues.Gold and other precious metals can be held in both Roth and Traditional IRAs and physical gold holdings are not subject to IRS reporting or taxes (with some exceptions in an IRA). It is highly portable - $100,000 of gold coins weighs only 6.25 pounds (at $1,000 per ounce) Gold is easy to store - it takes up little room, it does not physically degrade over time and it will readily survive a wide variety of temperatures, storage conditions and natural disasters. Unlike paper money, It cannot be devalued by government action. A precious metals IRA a regular account can be set up to provide a simple one-stop shop process.
