Over time the value of money is eroded severely. You
just need to look at what an ounce of gold would buy a
hundred years ago and compare it to what an ounce of gold
would buy today.
If you were to use as an example of what gold was worth
in US Dollars a 100 years ago in 1917 and then see what
the same value of that dollar would be today, you would
quickly appreciate why gold is such a good long term
investment for your future and that of your family and
In July 1917 gold was worth US$20.67
In 1917 a loaf of bread cost just 7 cents
a dozen eggs cost 34 cents
a quart of milk cost 9 cents
a pound of steak cost 26 cents.
So an ounce of gold at $20.67 would buy 295 loaves
@ 7 cents per loaf of
bread back then.
Work out for yourself how many litres or quarts of
milk or pounds of steak you could have bought with your
one ounce of gold in 1917.
Now if you had saved your $20.67 for a hundred years
in a safe place, well, how many loaves of bread would
you buy today with $20.67?
About THIRTEEN if you were to buy really cheap mass
produced white bread which is probably nothing like the
wholesome GMO free and chemical free bread of a 100 years
If someone had lived long enough and saved an ounce
of gold for 100 years, it would now be worth US $1250
dollars (at time of writing) and it would now buy
over 600 loaves of white bread.
An ounce of gold today would buy 271lbs of beef
steak in the US. Compare that with $20.67 if you had saved the
cash under your mattress for a hundred years... gosh it
would buy just 4.5lbs or two kilos of beef steak today.
There is no contest!
Gold retains it's value in
the real world regardless of what fiat money does.
Obviously there are very good reasons to invest your
money in gold to protect your savings from being eroded
by inflation. Buying gold as an investment is absolutely
worth it because it is THE BEST AND SAFEST HEDGE against
long term inflation
AND you can now buy it in small
Over a long period of time, as the above figures
show, gold has more than kept pace with inflation. It
has markedly increased in buying power when comparing
the buying power of a dollar from a hundred years ago.
Essentially... the return on longer term gold
investment is well in line and in fact well above the
average rate of inflation in India.
A second reason to invest in gold is to balance the
massive movement downward that equity markets suffer
from time to time. Everyone who had money invested in
the stock market would recall what happed in 2008 as the
stock market crashed and fell of a cliff.
It sent investors into bankruptcy
all around the world. Of course those that had a good
percentage of their money in gold were laughing all the
way to the bank as the gold price rocketed upwards as
the stock market bottomed out.
Many people lost the shirt off their backs and have
never recovered since. The gold bugs of course made a huge
killing if they sold off at the top of market when it
hit almost US$2000 per ounce
So gold as an investment in your portfolio will help
reduce the potential for volatility and give much more
security and peace of mind for average small gold
So is buying gold a good investment?
A resounding YES is the only answer an astute
investor could make.
So in the short term is it profitable to invest in
Well it depends on how short the term is. You may get
some staggering returns on gold if you were to buy
during the dips that occur as they are at this point in
time as I write this in February 2017.
If you had bought gold in 2010 and kept it for less
than two years you would have made over 100% on your
investment if you sold it 18 months later when gold
peaked. It's all about timing if you are looking for
short term gains.
On average gold increases at about 10 percent per
year which puts it on a par with real estate as an
investment for the long term. However, just like real
estate it can have swings both ways depending on market
History always repeats itself so don't be surprised to
see another huge movement upwards in the gold price if
anything happens in the world economy that shakes the
foundations of the fiat money capitalists in the world.
In my own opinion, I would be extremely surprised to see
any substantial downward movement in the price of gold
because of the huge unrest that is occurring throughout
the world in the overblown debt ridden countries and

to buying jewellery as opposed to gold bars or gold
coins. There are many disadvantages as far as an

It's not wise to buy gold jewellery as an investment.
You will easily pay double or more than what the actual
gold price is.
Investment in gold coins and gold bars
Investment in gold coins and
bars is a far better option compared to gold jewellery.
The problem is in India where do you buy legitimate gold
coins and gold bars from a reputable honest dealer?
Yes... no wonder so many
people opt to buy the expensive gold jewellery rather
risk buying coins and small bars of gold from an
unfamiliar and untrusted source.

current buy price of gold. How good is that? A no risk
investment that could start you on the path to
You could also buy gold in an ETF which is short for
Exchange Traded Fund.
But could you trust them. A gold exchange traded fund is
a type of fund which invests in digital gold and the
units of this mutual fund scheme is listed in the stock
exchange. They may not actually own any physical gold.
You don't see the pretend gold and you can't have the
pretend gold sent to you because it may well not even
figures in a computer for most of these electronic
trading system they set up. There is little or no tangible gold held
by the ETF. When it is all boiled down it is massive con
because there is nowhere enough REAL gold to fill all
the digital gold orders in the world.
Many people think they own gold
but it is just smoke screen They own digits in a
computer and they don't even own them when the system

somewhere, by all means go ahead and buy digital gold
through an ETF or through a currency Forex broker
somewhere. You will probably get burnt sometime in the

There is all sorts of ways to buy digital gold in the
world via Gold Funds and on the Forex Currency market.
You know, none of it is real. You are buying thin air. If
times get tough those funds and currency brokers just
shut up shop and rip the profits out before you get your
digital gold out in paper or digital money.
You see the trouble is they never had the gold to
start with. It's actually a huge con and one that any
sensible person would never get involved in as far as a
rock solid investment in
REAL GOLD is concerned
So... lets just forget about the pretend gold that
doesn't exist except as digital gold in computers.
That's for the HIGH RISK takers not the long term gold
But by all means go ahead with it if you have a very
big appetite for high risk trading.
As far as gold investment is concerned how much of
your capital should you put into gold?

worth should be allocated to gold. If you own genuine

that any time you want to and you will be paid what the
buy price of the gold is on that particular day.
