In this highly volatile international financial climate, gold's value, relative to most national currencies, will soar
Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) March 1, 2007
The global economic and financial market looks increasingly precarious and global trade imbalances are at unprecedented levels. Rising U.S. interest rates and high oil prices now threaten to push the system to a breaking point.
"In this highly volatile international financial climate, gold's value, relative to most national currencies, will soar," said Kevin DeMeritt, a top gold investment advisor of Lear Financial, Inc., the parent company of Gold Central, one of the top gold coin companies in the U.S.
"There are six key reasons why investors should own gold coins," adds DeMeritt.
Inflation - Today, a number of factors are creating the perfect inflationary storm: major tax cuts, a spike in oil prices, a mammoth trade deficit, and America's status as the world's biggest debtor nation makes owning gold coins a viable hedge against inflation.
Declining dollar - Gold is bought and sold in U.S. dollars, so any decline in the value of the dollar causes the price of gold to rise. However, now that it has been stripped of its gold backing, the dollar is nothing more than a fancy piece of paper.
Gold as a safe haven - Gold has often been called the "crisis commodity" because it tends to outperform other investments during periods of world tensions. When international crisis is eminent, the public begins to distrust paper assets and turns to buying gold coins for a safe haven.
Supply and Demand - Gold production is declining and global demand is outpacing supply. Both India and China are in the process of liberalizing laws relating to the import and sale of gold in ways that will facilitate gold purchases on a mammoth scale.
Store of Value - Gold price may fluctuate but over the long run gold has consistently proved to be an effective preserver of wealth. It has also proved to be a safe choice in times of economic and social instability.
Portfolio Diversifier- Gold is an important part of a diversified investment portfolio because its price increases in response to events that erode the value of traditional paper investments like stocks and bonds.
