Gold Bullion in the Federal Reserve Game

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

A lot of people take a lot of jabs at the current Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and at his administration. It’s fairly understandable. The economic policy of the Fed, despite being a veritable market unto itself, has yielded a “frustratingly slow” recovery in the words of Ben Bernanke himself.

“Helicopter Ben,” as he is sometimes called in alternative media, is the nickname given to the Chairman of the Fed due to his inflationary policy of wanton money printing. All the stimulus programs we have seen, the Quantitative Easing programs, and the debt-monetization amounts to printing money. The Fed has proved it is willing and able to print money.

The image portrayed is one of Ben Bernanke, leaning out of the window of a helicopter and raining money down, which he could do ad infinitum as the Chairman of the Fed. This fits with his image as a moot academic with little to no business savvy or real world experience. In order to buy popularity and acceptance, he is printing money.

All of this may or may not be true. Politically speaking, hopefully the Chairman of the Federal Reserve knows what he’s doing and is fairly immune to attacks on his image. Economically speaking, however, the policy of the central bank is necessarily causing a lot of inflation in the cost of real goods.

Gold bullion is about as tangible of a commodity as you can get. It is, in essence, the most real good available on the market. Therefore, as “Helicopter Ben” continues to print money, and there are indications he is going to print more of it, the price of gold will continue to skyrocket.

Gold production and supply has changed little since the start of this crisis. But the value of the dollar, which is in question, has changed quite a bit and promises to change even more in the future. As the Fed continues printing money, and there is indication they must print more, the price of gold bullion will continue to gain as a real good in a sea of fake paper.

Gold Bullion Will Be There When You Most Need It

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

This year has started with a lot of overhead baggage menacing its overall survival. I’m not just talking about the United States, but around the world. Things are so bad on the other side of the Atlantic that, as it deteriorates, the impending threat of straightforward monetization of the Eurozone’s debt by its central bank and, clandestinely, by the United States’ Federal Reserve will overwhelm us. We are neighboring highly precarious waters and we just might drown in them.

So, what does one do? Should we save our hard-earned cash in stocks, bonds, and CDs or should we use it to purchase a safer asset? People with a smidgen more understanding about investing than the average person will advise you to purchase the precious metal amidst inflationary periods while others who enjoy a bit more knowledge than them will counsel that during inflationary and deflationary periods or even during periods of uncertainty and instability or when interest rates are negative is the best time to purchase gold.

What do the rich do? First of all, their answer as to when to buy gold is ALWAYS! You see, they do not perceive gold as an investment. Rather, they view it as a store of wealth and truly believe that gold should be on hand at all times. Gold as a store of wealth means the obsession about the gold price disappears. In other words, they do not follow daily prices of gold. They aren’t aspiring at earning short-term profits from gold possession; they are undertaking the sustainment of general purchasing control.

It’s all in the books: because gold has an inverse relationship with other types of assets, it has the ability to protect real wealth. What does this mean? That when gold prices are dropping, other types of assets are most often increasing in real terms. Likewise, when gold surges, these same assets are cascading in real terms.

The wealthy seek security for their families under any circumstances and with the way the global economy is headed, they’re right on target. Physical gold bullion can supply vast wealth in a condensed, globally-accepted form that can be concealed from the meddling of governments. Since the global economy is at a very uncertain point, this way of thinking provides them with a manner in which to escape losing it all if or when economic destruction ensues. Whether you’re a supporter of this type of thinking or not, it really doesn’t matter. This is how the wealthy think and they must know something we don’t, or they wouldn’t be the rich ones. These are the people who prepare for the unthinkable.

Just read something about those who fled from Germany while Hitler was in charge. The survivors deserted houses, businesses, and paper assets to flee their native country. They walked out on savings and securities accounts because if they would have touched them, then the government would have been in tune to what they were planning to do. What did they take with them? GOLD…as much of it as they could conceivably hoard. Again, gold was not considered an investment, but perceived as a manner in which to shroud their entire lives beyond borders.

This is why owning gold is considered a very wise action towards the safety and security of one’s portfolio. Just be prepared. Stop thinking in the short-term and start thinking about owning some gold bullion that will be there when you need it most.

It seems as if gold spot prices are winding down a bit from a zany year 2009, and now may be a beneficial time to consider a short-term, gold bullion investment. The spot price dipped below $1100 per-troy-ounce levels earlier this afternoon, and were hovering at around $1098.80, as of 1:40pm, EST. Many are speculating a dormant global economy until the New Year arrives, and then a swift kick in the pants for U.S. dollar values, to bring in the year 2010. Gold bullion prices historically move in the opposite direction of dollar values, so investors are encouraged to research the short-term benefits of owning one-ounce bullion items like Johnson Matthey bars, or modern, 22-karat America Eagle bullion coins.

Our government backs the weight and precious metal content of American Eagle gold coins, and their prices generally hover just above the current gold spot price. These modern bullion coins’ obverse design is also an inexact replica of the rare, $20 Saint Gaudens, 22-karat gold coin, which was minted from 1907, to 1933. These legendary rare gold coins are widely used as long-term, wealth preservation holdings, because their inherent numismatic value has appreciated remarkably during long-term cycles of degenerated dollar values. Many household investors are protecting their wealth with long-term investments in Saint Gaudens rare gold coins, and diversifying with the aforementioned American Eagle gold bullion, for short-term liquidations. Investors are encouraged to complete their research, and then to contact one of our friendly specialists, who offer institutional discounts on these, and many other bullion, and rare coins to household investors like you.

Many investors prefer to pay the slightly higher premium for the intricate beauty of gold bullion coin, rather than holding less inspiring bullion bars for physical possession. Modern gold bullion coin is an extremely hot investment lately, as the spot price continues to set new all-time record highs, without needing much profit taking time to recover, and resume its’ upward progression. Today, the price of one troy ounce of pure gold only retreated about $5 from yesterday’s newest record high, which supports the theory that investors could be fearing the worst, and acquiring physical metal like gold bullion coin to protect their wealth from plummeting dollar values.

One important thing for bullion investors to remember is that the U.S. government confiscated all gold bullion from American citizens in 1933, and the same type of dollar saving strategy could again be implemented today. To avoid confiscation, a great many investors are converting the bulk of their wealth into rare coins, which are both non-confiscatable, and superb long-term investments for financial safety. Rare coins like $20 Lady Liberty, and $20 Saint Gaudens, 22-karat gold coins are among the best coins for wealth preservation and future potential profit. They possess nearly one full troy ounce of pure gold, and their numismatic value is historically proven to appreciate significantly during long stretches of economic duress. Long term investors are diversifying their rare coin holdings with bullion coins like 22-karat, American Eagles, for short-term liquidations, while rare coins are left to appreciate. Investors can receive institutional discounts on their bullion and rare coin by contacting one of our friendly specialists, who offer these discounts to household investors like you.
