What is a Gold IRA?
The world is as uncertain as ever and the economy is no exception. The problem with a tumultuous economy is that your assets are almost always subject to the whims and woes of your country, banks, market and foreign relations. What is to be done? What CAN be done? Invest in something which remains unweathered by external crises: Gold
How do Gold IRAs Work?
Ever hear about someone opening a Gold IRA? If so, you probably thought that there must be some Tom-Foolery at play. How can someone use their retirement savings to invest in gold when you were explicitly told that such investments were impossible? Not only that, but, we’re not even talking about gold on paper. No, we’re talking about real, physical gold owned by you and stored in an IRS approved depository – to be used at your behest.
Whether you’re a typical investor, a retirement account holder, or just a gold enthusiast – there has never been a better time to get into gold.
Gold is unburdened by economic turmoil, decentralized from governments, isolated from currencies. What that means is gold remains valuable and whole – regardless of external influence. So, down to the brass tax. What can gold do for your assets? If your assets ARE gold, they would be extended the same safety net, no? The same holds true for retirement savings invested in gold. By starting a self-directed IRA and using its funds to purchase gold, you effectively take control of your assets and protect them from economic weathering.
