Solo 401k plan and Precious Metal Investment

Solo 401k plan and Precious Metal Investment

A Solo 401k plan with checkbook control is a powerful tool for the buy-and-sell strategy. It offers self directed option, which means investors do not have to wait for custodial approval before making the move. In fact, the account holders act as the trustee and have total control over their retirement funds. Checkbook control also means that transactions can be made as easily as writing a check. Many investors found this flexibility crucial to successfully invest in precious metals and other commodities.

Buy Gold and Silver to Protect Your Wealth against the Policies of Global Leaders

Buy Gold and Silver to Protect Your Wealth against the Policies of Global Leaders

I believe the current geopolitical tensions are going to worsen in the short-term, and while the US dollar may not lose its status as the worlds’ reserve currency any time soon, its dominance is weakening. The greenback’s share of global reserves has already shrunk to under 61% from more than 72% in 2001. Both Russia and China have been accumulating large quantities of gold especially China as they diversify into tangible assets. No matter what media you may believe, the fact is, in the end you have to look after yourself and the way things are going every individual should own some physical gold and silver. These precious metals provide the ultimate insurance against bad decisions made by governments.

Top 7 Reasons I’m Buying Silver Now

Just like gold, our stash of silver will help us maintain our standard of living—but may be even more practical to use for small purchases. And in a high-inflation/decaying-dollar scenario, the silver price is likely to exceed consumer price inflation, giving us further purchasing power protection. The bottom line is that the current silver price should be seen as a long-term buying opportunity. This may or may not be our last chance to buy at these levels for this cycle, but if you like bargains, silver’s neon “Sale!” sign is flashing like a disco ball.

Bubble Mania: Is The Mother Of All Bubbles About To Burst In 2014?

Yes, a “big one” could happen. Stocks look over-priced, gold and silver look “beaten down,” the global credit and currencies bubbles could implode, global derivatives are a potential disaster zone, and our politicians seem intent on creating distractions, “false flags,” and new ways to enrich the military-industrial complex and bankers.

John Hathaway Recommends Buying Gold Like It’s 1999 Again

John Hathaway Recommends Buying Gold Like It’s 1999 Again

Investors should consider gold and gold exposure as an alternative asset class and as part of an overall portfolio. I would recommend that investors average their investment over time instead of buying all at once. The gold price is volatile and it’s very difficult to get the low points. Averaging over time when the price dips can help financially and mentally even out the ups and downs. Consider gold as a very long-term investment, not just a two- or three-year investment.

Eventually we’ll have a collapse or deflationary bust in asset markets. That’s inevitable. Printing money can postpone such a collapse but eventually the bust will occur. Every inflation, whether consumer price inflation or asset inflation, eventually comes to an end. I hold physical gold for the reason that one day I may not be able to remit money from one country to another. I don’t know when this final systemic collapse that I am foreseeing will occur but all I can say is that in monetary, inflationary times, when inflation is measured properly, in real terms: stocks usually don’t do particularly well but gold does.
