Self-Directed Gold IRAs are for those investors who really want to feel solid

With the Self-Directed IRA giving investors the freedom to go beyond the bounds of stocks and bonds for retirement investing, other options like gold have intrigued retirement investors for years. Recently, the American IRA blog explained the advantages of holding precious metals within Self-Directed Gold IRAs.

The post, available at, explained why many investors turn to precious metals within a Self-Directed IRA to build their retirement nest egg. “In times of uncertainty,” the post says, “gold has always been the ultimate safe harbor.”

That certainty leads many Self-Directed IRA investors to consider going beyond stocks and bonds in their search for stability for their retirement portfolio. The IRS allows a wide range of approved investments within a Self-Directed IRA, which is why Self-Directed Gold IRAs are possible. The argument in favor of previous metals is that they tend to hold on to their value even in the face of rapid inflation or trouble in the stock market. A portfolio that includes both gold and silver can add to its stability.

“Self-Directed Gold IRAs are for those investors who really want to feel solid,” said Jim Hitt, CEO of American IRA. “This is not an investment for someone looking to make a quick buck. Instead, it is an investment that says an investor is making long-term stability a priority. With precious metals in a Self-Directed IRA, it is possible to feel certain about your wealth even in uncertain economic times. And you never know when another crash will come.”

The article also explored the regulations that govern the rules of Self-Directed Gold IRAs. For example, those holding gold within a Self-Directed IRA will be expected to hold approved gold/silver products rather than putting in anything they might have found in the jewelry case.
