April 21, 2009 – The future of the United States economy continues to look uncertain, especially after several United States companies and banks posted disappointing quarterly results along with excessive toxic debt, and many wise investors are finding gold and silver coins to be the ideal investments to own at the moment because historically, they thrive during unstable economic times. Risk aversion seems to be the headline for the day, and both the United States Dollar along with gold and silver coins are becoming more popular by investors who want to hedge themselves from further negative economic problems that are resulting because of this financial crisis. It’s very important to understand the simple fact that although the United States Dollar may seem a worthy risk aversion assets in the short-term, the longer-term problems such as inflation or deflation may wither away at the overall strength of the fiat currency. This being said, a proper diversification into true safe haven assets like precious metals could give investors the preservation they seek amidst all these economic problems.

By around the end of the trading day, gold and silver coins are showing a small decrease in value along with their respective spot prices that have fallen slightly today, and gold is currently trading at $883.30 per ounce, a decrease of $1.50 or .17% for the trading day and also a decrease of $33.80 or 3.69% in the last 365 trading days. Keep a close eye on any upcoming economic data, as it may continue to fluctuate spot prices down the road.
