Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 18, 2012
Investing Gold and Silver have been and continue to be common place for a growing number of American Investors. In addition to direct purchases of these metals in order to take physical possession, more and more Individual American Investors are looking at current Global Economic and Geo-Political conditions and investigating how to diversify a portion of their retirement assets into “Physical Precious Metals.” But what about Platinum? Most individual investors know little about how to evaluate if or to what extent Platinum should play a role within their Precious Metals investment portfolio. PMBG identified three key aspects to help first time and/or newer Platinum investors and released a Common Sense Guide to Investing in Platinum, offering how the pragmatic investor can approach the process.
Within their new guide are the three key areas that most first-time or newer Platinum Investors benefit from knowing ahead of a purchase: I) Knowing the history of performance, II) Learning what type of Platinum product to focus upon and what prices to expect and III) Using key criteria for finding the right Precious Metals dealer to work with. Why? Because the fundamental case for increased platinum prices in 2013 and beyond remains strong. Within 2012 Platinum has oscillated in price between just below $1,400/oz to just above $1,700/oz (a 20%+ variance) based upon several macro-economic factors (such as the Eurozone Crisis, an election year, a third round of Quantitative Easing and more significantly a South African Platinum Miners’ Strike that started in August – most notably at Anglo American Platinum - the world's largest platinum producer). Experienced followers of Platinum will recall that it has already been above $2,000/oz during first half of 2008 and went above $2,200/oz twice during the same period (above the price of Gold). Current levels have some experts signaling a significant move up within 2013: http://www.thestreet.com/video/11780267/why-platinum-prices-could-spike-in-2013.html
For most individual investors, buying platinum typically means needing to get more familiar with a new investment option and starting from square one in terms of knowing how to go about it. PMBG has now made that process easier for millions by offering a Common Sense Guide to Investing in Platinum, whether minted bars or minted gold coins (usually in 1oz increments), such as the Platinum American Eagle and Canadian Maple Leaf Platinum Coins.
