If you are looking for a way to balance your investment portfolio, the easiest and smartest way is to invest in gold bullion. Of all our precious metals, gold is the most popular to invest in and it is easy to see why. The sheer mention of its name screams wealth and it has been found time and time again to be a safe way for investors to insure their assets against volatile economic times; it increases in value when paper bought stocks and bonds decrease.
In simple terms, when other assets values drop in price, gold often rises. In the economic crashes of 2008 and 2018, many investors in the USA purchased gold to protect against the currency decline of the dollar. This form of investment is known as ‘hedging’ and the smartest investors know that as currency value falls, inflation occurs, also causing higher prices on imports and the value of their other stocks to decrease. The value of gold, however, is rarely affected by such economic trends and is therefore the best investment against inflation.
This trend of purchasing gold has continued to rise in recent years; in 2018, the investor demand for gold in the United States grew by 4%, due to trade wars between the US and China. In the United Kingdom in 2018, due to the continued uncertainty of Brexit, the investor demand outstretched that of the US, with 12% of investors demanding the ability to invest in gold.
It is well known with all these economic forecast predictions and disputes, that we live in uncertain economic times. In 2019, trade wars between US and China have not resolved satisfactorily and with the unresolved tensions between the UK and the EU regarding Brexit, the stock markets are prone to fluctuation.
However, all this uncertainty in the stock market and global politics has driven the price of gold up. In 2019, the price of gold has risen $99 in the US and has increased 11.6% in the UK in June alone. Though it is often hard to predict future trends, it appears a sure set thing that gold prices will increase as demand rises across the globe.
With the worldwide economy struggling and with all the unresolved political tensions driving down the price of paper stocks, there has been no better time to invest in gold.
Whether you are a long-term investor or are just getting into buying stocks, there are a few bits you need to know about purchasing gold. We have discussed the benefits of gold as hedge investments and as insurance in rollercoaster economics but how do you actually buy gold stock? There are a few different ways depending on your investment objectives.
There is the option to contact a leading gold brokers relating to the purchasing of gold bullion, gold certificates etc. The key to purchasing gold successfully is to conduct research online to explore the multiple companies that buy and sell gold online; these are often cheaper and easier to access than traditional gold brokers along with being easier to navigate if you wish to sell.
