Whenever on the topic of investments, gold should always be part of the conversation especially for those who are working to create a diversified investment portfolio.
Sure, on the short term, gold can be volatile but on the long term gold has always held its value and over the years has been an excellent hedge against inflation. And there are many other reasons to consider gold in your investment portfolio.
Take for example how gold response to geopolitical uncertainty. When there is a general unease over world security there is a human tendency to run to what is safe, which has historically been gold. In many cases, in times of world tension, gold outperforms all other forms of investment.
Gold seems to hold up well during cycles of both inflation and deflation as well. Gold prices have historically performed well and served as a hedge in times of rapid increases in inflation and the purchasing power of gold has often soared while other prices have fallen during periods of deflation. Gold also appears to buck the trends of stock and other financial instruments as well, making it key in creating a diverse investment portfolio.
Another major market trend that brings increased value to gold is the softening of the U.S. dollar. In 2008 gold reached an all-time high of $1,000 an ounce. And due to the struggling post-recession economy, gold prices nearly doubled again between 2008 and 2012. And as the trade deficit continues to grow along with a large increase in the money supply one would expect gold to continue to increase in value.
Many of those that do invest in gold reach out to U.S. Money Reserve to help them with their investment.
