“Gold is forever. It is beautiful, useful, and never wears out. Small wonder that gold has been prized over all else, in all ages, as a store of value that will survive the travails of life and the ravages of time.” (Gary North)
There’s a huge gap when it comes to finding reliable information about investing in gold.
Unfortunately, almost everyone else publishing information about gold has a vested interest in how they present the precious metal. They’re not trying to help you learn — they’re trying to get you to buy their goods.
Most coin dealer websites give bad information and peddle over-priced “rare” coins to investors who don’t know any better.
Most mining websites peddle so-called mining “penny” stocks that will leave you broke after promising you “get rich quick” dreams.
Most mutual fund websites forget to mention how mutual funds usually underperform, and are extra risky even though they pretend to be safer because they’re “experts” at investing.
So that’s why I wrote this guide — to give you the information you want to have about the basic ways of investing in gold, without worrying about my secret motives. I am not selling gold coins, stocks, funds, futures, or any other gold investment. I’m here to help people looking for secure and profitable gold investments, and that’s it.
The purpose of this guide is to convey the basics about investing in gold. It begins by identifying the popular reasons to buy gold and then reveals different ways to invest in the precious metal. By the time you finish this guide, you’ll know the basics of investing in:
- Gold bullion coins.
- Gold mining stocks.
- Gold mutual funds.
- Gold futures.
- Gold exchange-traded funds.
Each of these methods of investing in gold have advantages and disadvantages — this guide will give you the rundown of each. A couple of these methods of investing are downright risky — some are ok, and some are simply essential.
You’ll find out which is which later in this guide.
When you’re investing in gold, just like when you’re investing in anything else, there are risks and scams. Information regarding risky penny gold stocks, so-called rare coins, and cash for gold will be explained as well.
At the end of this guide, I’ll provide suggestions for the best methods for getting started. Within a few minutes of finishing this short report, you’ll be on your way to being the proud owner of a gold investment.
Remember, the wisest investments fall within the comfort level of the individual and represent educated, unemotional decisions. Let reason guide your investments, and your security and profits will both peak.
