Efficient Gold Investing


wealthymattersIn unsettled times, gold remains relevant. It is an asset of the last resort. It comes in handy in times of personal and social crisis. If you have amassed a fortune, it makes sense to geographically disperse it to ensure that all eggs are not in one basket. Moreover gold tends to be a good hedge against a depreciating currency and can be freely bought and stored abroad to be converted to any currency of choice as needed. A further plus is the lower gold rates abroad. So, for readers who have written in to ask about alternatives to BullionIndia, if you can deal with larger quantities of bullion,there is a better option: BullionVault.

The best gold and silver deals are listed on the international professional bullion markets—where most trade and government industries and banks trade—not the Mumbai Wholesale market. But this market only deals gold in 400 oz good delivery bars, which cost around $500,000(3crores) each. The silver bars weigh 1,000 oz. This puts the best prices out of reach of most private individuals. Further good delivery bars are stored in accredited vaults. The vaults have a high minimum monthly charge, so you would need about 15 of these 400 oz gold bars, worth around $7,000,000(43crores), to make it economic for you to open an account yourself. The large starting balance tends to make the system inaccessible to many private customers. With the help of online trading such as BullionVault, you’re able to obtain information from international gold markets and own gold bars. It’s a good thing that you’ll also enjoy cheaper prices in terms of storage. So whether you are purchasing or selling, expect to find top notch international gold prices. BullionVault offers none of the free storage and zero commission on sales that BullionIndia offers. But the small fees are reasonable if you are dealing with larger amounts. You will make back these small expenses in the better rates you get. Also you will be offered priceless security and guarantees.  Read more of this post

The Gold Investor’s Bible


wealthymatters.comThis is the free e-book advertised in ‘The End of America’. Despite the negative reports I decided to look for a copy and read it just to see for myself if it was really as bad as it was portrayed.

I personally find this is a very good book and it has all the basics in one place.You can get a copy here: http://www.capitalsynthesis.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/The-Gold-Investor-s-Bible.pdf .If you are interested in investing in gold,I heartily recommend this book to you.Reading a book doesn’t mean uncritically accepting everything and tossing money into untested ideas.This book will offer you ideas,consider them,test them and if things work for you go for them.

Here is more about what I gained by reading this book with essays contributed by Chris Weber,Jeff Clerk,Steve Sjuggerud etc. : Read more of this post
