One of the hottest topics today involves investing for retirement. There is a time for nearly every investment option. And a time to leave a particular investment.
Without a doubt now is the time to be investing in silver and investing in gold. Both can be held within your IRA. Both precious metals are poised for explosive growth. I hold silver bullion in my IRA with Equity Trust. They allow various options including real estate. But now is the time to be focused on silver and gold as you work on investing for retirement. I like the idea of directing my own account. I'm not tied to the minimal offerings of a typical IRA or 401K plan.
Continued actions and reactions by the federal reserve board to artificially increase the currency supply combined with the sinking housing bubble and the soon to burst dollar bubble have created the perfect scenario for silver and gold to soar to new high levels.
Gold and silver have always been considered safe havens in inflationary times. As the federal reserve rushes to print fiat currency in a frantic effort to keep the stock market bubble inflated, it is only pushing the real problems down the road. And adding fuel to the already smoldering inflationary fire. Click here for details on how this could cripple many 401k accounts.
Carefully read the following paragraph from highly respected metals expert Michael Maloney...
" Throughout the ages many things have been used as currency; livestock, grains, spices, shells, beads and paper. But only two things have been money. Gold and silver. When the paper currency becomes too abundant and thus loses value, man always turns back to the precious metals. During these events there is always an enormous wealth transfer and it is within your power to transfer that wealth either away from or toward you."
Notice how he differentiates between currency and money. They are two very different things. I strongly recommend that you read his book, "Guide to Investing in Gold and Silver." It will provide the following insight...
1.) The essential history of economic cycles that make gold and silver the ultimate monetary standard.
2.) How the U.S. government is driving inflation by diluting our money supply and weakening our purchasing power.
3.) Why precious metals are one of the most profitable, easiest and safest investments you can make.
4.) Where, when and how to invest your money and realize maximum returns, no matter what the state of the economy.
5.) Essential advice on avoiding the middleman and taking control of your financial destiny by making investments directly.
Timely information is vital. You won't hold silver within your IRA to own coins. You will do so as part of investing for retirement. You will fund that retirement and not be caught off guard by any economic trauma. Click the link below for a 90 minute video that will explain further. Kind of a long one, but certainly worth the time. Good planning requires effort.
This book will enlighten you. It will cause some anger and concern about the people we send to Washington to serve us. And for sure it will empower you!
