Precious Metals Can Add Diversity to Traditional Investment Portfolios, by Eagle Bullion Group

September 26, 2012 Leave a comment

Precious metals such as silver or gold bullion can enhance a traditional investment portfolio by adding stability that stocks just cannot provide in the current economic climate. The demand for silver has gone up over recent years even as supply has diminished, leading to increased investment and profit potential. Since 1960 the U.S. government’s stockpile of silver has diminished by 20 million ounces, partly because of the increased need to utilize metal in technology and manufacturing. Gold has always been considered a worthwhile investment, and continues to increase in value. Gold serves as a hedge against inflation, holds its value throughout the world, and unlike real estate, gold is easily liquidated. As confidence in world governments’ abilities to maintain currency values plummets, more investors are favoring gold and silver as an investment choice.

Eagle Bullion Group of Jupiter, Florida, offers accounts for the buying and selling of precious metals, including gold, silver, platinum, and palladium. At Eagle Bullion Group, clients have the benefit of paying a one-time management fee for the lifetime of their accounts.

The Importance of Precious Metals By Arthur Soriano, Eagle Bullion Group

If the federal government suddenly became available as a public offering, you probably wouldn’t want to buy too many shares of stock in it for two reasons. First, because of our country’s enormous debt; and second, because every dollar you have basically is a share in the government, and you know that the dollar’s value is depreciating.

The U.S. currently owes $400 billion in interest payments alone. In business, any company that owes more money than its actual worth is considered a debt pit, and our government has fallen into its own hole.

Fortunately, other, more valuable assets exist in which you can invest: precious metals. For the first time in many years, foreign banks are buying up gold, creating excellent price support. Following their lead, central banks thinking twice about holding on to American dollars are also investing in gold and other metals such as silver, which currently outperforms gold.

In effect, the value of precious metals goes up as our currency’s value continues to drop.
