April 11, 2009 – Gold And Silver Investing

Gold and silver investments are still going strong this year. We will, as always, wait and see what it looks like in December before saying “2009 is a great year for gold and silver investing”, but the fact remains that investors who buy gold and silver today are likely to be much happier a month from now than the investors who take a chance on the turbulent stock market.

One of the simplest and most consistent rules of the modern economy is simply that, when stocks and the value of the American dollar go down, the value of gold and silver bullion, as well as gold and silver bars and coins, tends to go up.

Now, with the inauguration of President Obama earlier this year, a lot of Americans were hoping for an overnight reversal of everything our economy has suffered over the last eight years. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case. Wherever you sit, politically, the problems we’ve experienced since 2000 or so have proven to not be the sort of problems that can be fixed with some new bills and a few bailout packages. Climbing out of this hole is going to be a long, trying process.

Americans are probably over the big gold and silver coins buying frenzy that began late last year, but that doesn’t mean we don’t still have a lot of new investors looking to purchase gold and silver for the first time.

When you invest in gold and silver, your investments tend to be much safer than in most any other form of investment. Oddly enough, in healthy economic times, this sort of “backup plan” tends to be largely neglected. When your stocks are making money, when your business is doing well, why bother with gold?

Ironically, though, economically strong periods are probably the best time to buy up gold. The prices tend to be lower, you tend to have more money with which to buy gold, in the first place, and you will probably see a significant boost to the value of your gold coins should we experience another recession.

The smart investors out there today are not only buying gold as an emergency plan B right now. They’re buying gold, and they intend to hold onto it even in the unlikely event that we do pull out of this recession by year’s end.

The economy has its ups and downs, and right now, we’re down. Any smart gold and silver owner knows that these precious metals are not about getting rich quick or getting in on the ground floor of some great way of making cash. Rather, precious metals are, perhaps, the very best option you have of keeping your money in your pocket. You won’t lose your metals investment to a stock crash, corrupt bankers, or inflation. That alone provides the peace of mind gold investors are looking for.

In times like these, of course, that peace of mind is worth, well… that peace of mind is worth its weight in gold.
