The Importance of Investing in Gold Today
There has never been a more opportune time to expand your financial assets and take part in the gold industry. There are numerous reasons why investing in gold today is a smart decision - explore some of the most compelling ones today.
Gold allows you to diversify your financial portfolio and stop relying solely on paper currency.
There has been a drastic increase in the use of precious metals such as silver and gold in the electronic, medical and jewelry markets, which will continue to create a higher demand for them. It’s a fantastic time to begin investing in these resources.
Gold allows you another financial investment option outside of traditional retirement savings plans which can easily fluctuate and change for the worst.
Wouldn’t it be nice to invest in a steady, reliable resource? Gold cannot be overproduced or counterfeit.
Additionally, in the event that traditional stocks plummet in value faster than investors can sell them, the gold bullion price historically rises. This is because after a market crash, investors push their currency into precious metal assets instead. When this happens, this ‘gold bull run cycle’ historically has been responsible for unprecedented financial ROI for investors.
How is the Gold Price Per Ounce Determined?
Did you know that mining companies must move an average of 9.4 tons of earth in order to procure the weight of approximately one golf ball sized sphere of pure gold? It’s true!
This gives some insight into why gold prices remain so high. Here are a few other interesting facts about what determines gold price:
The demand for gold within the jewelry industry. Gold is one of the most common precious metals sought after for rings, bracelets and many others. As this market continues to grow, so does the need for more gold.
The currency valuation. Specifically, the demand for gold in China has increased significantly as the yen solidifies its value in relation to USD. When the value of the USD strengthens, the spot price of gold (and silver) decreases. In contrast, when the USD weakens, the spot price of gold increases.
Central bank reserves also play a key part in the buying and selling gold in massive quantities. This has a big impact on prices throughout the world.
Gold is able to retain value as currency weakens in global markets, making it a valuable asset to invest in.
What Does the Gold Spot Price Mean?
The gold spot price refers to the current price of raw gold per troy ounce before any gold dealer premiums and/or taxes. This price is determined by a set of global values and is the same no matter where one is located in the world.
The price of gold is closely monitored to prevent anyone from buying the precious metal in one area of the world and selling it for a different price somewhere else.
