There are many ways to invest in gold but the safest way is to outright buy the physical metal. Gold is the only "true money" the world has ever known. It is the greatest hedge against inflation and is a store of value on the rise. I have been involved in the precious metals for many years and unfortunatley seen a lot of good, hardworking people lose a lot of money. Some of this can be blamed on the market (even though last year gold hit an all-time high at around $1920 per ounce) but even more can be blamed on the investment vehicles and the bad advice of greedy CEO's.
Whenever there is a "boom" in any market there will always be good companies and bad companies that pop up to try and take advantage of a hot market. This has certainly been the case in the precious metals market over the past several years. Turn your TV on during the evening news and count how many ads you see for coins or gold investments. These companies prey on the average person who may have heard or read a little something about gold but just do not have the knowledge to make a good decision. An example would be a company selling "rare" coins....well if you are not an expert how do you know if it is REALLY rare? My advice if you would like to by coins is to find a reputable dealer in your city or town, this way at least you know who your dealing with and you may even have some recourse if your unsatisfied with your purchase.
My next recommendation is stay clear investment vehicles that use leverage on physical metal unless you are prepared to lose money. While it is possible to make money it is very rare. These are investments that are full of fees; commissions, interest, account opening fee, storage fees, and spreads which can be manipulated in favor of the firm. It is an unregulated industry that does not require brokers to be licensed....so at the end of the day you are dealing with a SALESMAN. What I am sharing with you is based on my bad experience with a few bad companys. I wouldn't say I am nieve but I did make some poor choices in the past but I am proud to say I am much wiser for it today. I didn't realize until it was to late that the only people that make money are the guys that own the business. I was an independent contractor for one owner who over the course of 2.5 years was wrong on just about every one of his recommendations(
So this brings me to Karatbars International. I have always believed in the value of gold and expect the price to continue to rise. Some experts are even calling for gold to rise up to $5000-$10,000 an ounce over the next 5 years!!! Most people, like me, don't have an extra $1600 a month to buy an ounce of gold......... this is exactly why Karatbars International was formed.
Gold, once reserved for the wealthiest, is now finally available to the masses!!! I would like to introduce the Gold Savings Plan from Karatbars International. This is the first program in the world allowing the purchases of gold in 1 gram increments. Not only is it a great way to protect your hard earned dollars but they make great gifts as well. Exchange your paper dollars for the only "real" money the world has ever known.... GOLD!
These Karatbars are certified by the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) as "good as money". It is FREE to open an account! You can purchase Karatbars and take free delivery, have them stored for free in Germany or for a small fee in Switzerland and Singapore. You can also enroll for FREE in the monthly gold savings plan with a minimum of approximately $70 per month. In Europe, Asia, and the Middle East these Karatbars are already being accepted as payment for goods and services!
This program is a great way to protect your wealth. As we see our FED print money out of thin air we can count on the value of the dollar to continue to decrease. At the same time you can certainly expect to see the value of gold make huge gains and outperform all other asset classes over the next few years.
I hope you found this article helpful. If you have any questions please give me a call....I do pick up my own phone! I would be happy to answer any questions you may have about Karatbars or any other aspect of the gold market.
