Gold

The Foundation of Wealth

From the dawn of civilization, gold's beauty and luster has produced a rare mythical quality unmatched by any other metal. It is one of the earliest and most valued metals known to man. For centuries, men everywhere have dreamed of finding gold. Men have mined it, bartered with it, and even died for it. These facts are not so surprising when you consider it's rarity, durability and unusual properties. Today gold has thousands of uses. It can be found in everything from calculators to spacecraft, jewelry and much more. It's virtually indestructible, resists corrosion, blocks 98% of radioactivity, and conducts electricity. Its uses are almost endless and have just begun to be tapped.

Worldwide Liquidity

Perhaps the most amazing feature of gold is its stability as a standard of real value. Although its value may fluctuate, history proves it's buying power tends to remain the same. Gold has been the most coveted metal in the world and single most trusted international medium of exchange for thousands of years. Trade between countries is frequently based on gold value as it is the most reliable currency. While paper currencies have devalued, eroded by inflation, and become virtually worthless, gold has maintained its purchasing power. Gold has been the established monetary standard for centuries. 

Why Gold? Why Now?

When there's a crisis, individuals and central banks accumulate gold. There are many straws in the wind right now. Most of us have an uneasy feeling that "something's just not right" – but we can't pin it down. What's interesting is that the world's central banks laid in more gold last year than they've done for the past 50 years! Shouldn't we be paying attention too?

Gold Is Money  

Gold is not used as a currency today, but its role as money makes it superior to any currency. In fact, gold has been money longer than any currency in history. Gold has been a store of value for at least 3,000 years, while one of the longest currencies in history, the British Pound Sterling, is about 1,200 years old. Even the United States of America has used gold as money more often than not in its history.

One of the crucial promises of money is that it serves as a long-term store of value. Gold fulfills this promise better than any fiat currency.

Gold Is a Tangible Asset  

If you buy physical gold, you can hold it in your hand, something you can’t do with most any other investment. Real gold can’t be destroyed by fire, water or even time. Unlike other commodities, gold doesn’t need feeding, fertilizer or maintenance. And since there’s only so much gold available, it has an inherent value that these other commodities don’t have. 

 

There’s another advantage to gold being a tangible asset: it can’t be hacked or erased. Unlike brokerage accounts, bank accounts and payment services like credit cards, gold bullion is out of reach from hackers and identity thieves. Even if the 1’s and 0’s that were used to create your account are deleted from existence, your gold will be safe and sound. In today’s world, it’s probably a good idea to have some of your wealth outside of the digital form.

Gold Has No Counterparty Risk  

If you hold gold bullion, no paper contract is needed to make it whole. No middleman or other party is necessary to fulfill a contractual obligation. That’s because gold is the only financial asset that is not simultaneously some other entity’s liability. 

 

This is important because gold will be the last man standing when bubbles pop or a crisis hits. That’s a powerful tool to have in your portfolio when things start to go wrong in your country or economy. 

 

It also means gold won’t go to zero. It’s never happened in its 3,000+ year history. That’s a powerful feature, especially if you asked former shareholders of companies like Bear Stearns, Enron or Lehman Brothers.

 

Gold will always have value. You can always sell it if you need currency. Physical gold cannot go bankrupt or broke. Gold bullion will never default on promises or obligations.

Gold Will Protect Your Portfolio in Times of Crisis 

One of gold’s strongest advantages is that it can protect your investments — even your standard of living — during periods of economic, monetary or geopolitical crisis. And depending on the nature of the crisis, gold can move from a defensive tool to an offensive profit machine. 

When a crisis strikes and drives fear higher — whether it’s from investors worried about the stock market or a full-blown event affecting the livelihood of all citizens — gold is a natural safe haven. Fear is what drives people in a crisis, so the greater the worry, the more gold is sought and the higher its price goes.

A lot could be written about the various crises that are possible today, but the point is that the level of risk in our economic, fiscal and monetary systems is elevated. There are so many risks, in fact, that the gold price is likely to make new all-time highs in response to some of these crises playing out. 

For these reasons and many more, the gold market certainly appears to represent an outstanding investing opportunity. The Synergy Metals Account makes investing in  bullion and coins convenient and flexible, offering up to 4-to-1 investment leverage, and it can be a powerful short-term trading vehicle during periods of rapidly changing gold prices. Today, a growing number of investment analysts, financial advisors and commentators are speaking out about the many wealth protection and profit potential benefits of owning gold and other precious metals.
