Wrapping your head around gold

When it comes to precious metals, gold seems to be getting all the press. Those who have invested in gold – particularly gold coins – have enjoyed a good run for several years.

When it comes to the gold coin, it’s a bull market, and the U.S. Mint is siding with the bulls. The Mint is set to resume selling certain types of gold coins Dec. 3. Meanwhile, the UK’s Royal Mint has dramatically increased production of gold coins as demand for the precious metal continues to surge.

Investing in gold is no longer the game of millionaires and big players on Wall Street. Over the past year, average Joes (and Janes) have taken an active interest in the precious metal.

When it comes to precious metals, the market never closes. Adding gold to your portfolio can give you a lot of flexibility. Should you decide to buy gold bullion, you’re bound to get a good return on your investment. Including gold bullion in a portfolio of stocks, bonds and cash can definitely offer strength and stability to that portfolio during market fluctuations.

Planning ahead – and securing your future with gold – is good business.
