Americans have been worried about what will happen to China if we stop buying their goods. But what not many people are talking about is what will happen to Americans if Americans stop buying from China? They will have a lot fewer products and other goods that they have gotten used to getting really cheap.
When you own gold or silver, it isn’t someone else’s liability. You don’t have to depend upon someone else’s ability to pay. This is why it is always so much better to own the physical product instead of a paper product. In the case of purchasing unleveraged gold or silver, you don’t want to rely on an investment bank to hopefully give you your gold when you really need it.
Pay attention to the markup when you purchase gold. There is always a markup, which the broker needs in order to profitably run his service. But sometimes the markup can be outrageous because they are jumping on unsuspecting investors. They may try to sell other coin products that are supposed to have some sort of superior quality in addition to gold.
1980-1981 was the the time that the gold bull run came to an end. This came when high interest rates and a sentiment that markets were the solution and government is the problem. Even if you didn’t sell your gold at its peak, you still would have sold your gold at 0 or 0 and transferred it into bonds that yielded 15%.
So you don’t have to worry about not timing the peak of the bubble that will occur. You will have still avoided the major wealth transfer, and you will then be able to transfer into other assets at that time. But right now there aren’t many better investments right now.
When picking stocks, you should look ahead at what you see will happen in the world. Then pick the companies that will be well positioned to do well in the world that you have imagined. That’s what investing is all about, looking into the future.
If you invest in stocks with a solid dividend, then you can live with the volatility a lot easier. You can find much higher yields right now in stocks compared to bonds. As long as the stock keeps paying the dividend, then you don’t ever need to worry about selling.
