7 Reasons Why You Should Be Saving in Gold

Gold is an investment that is expected to retain its value or even increase its value in times of market turbulence. The uncertainty of geopolitical and financial instability are the main reasons why you should hold in physical gold.   

1. Gold Hedge against Inflation. 

Inflation is defined as an increase in prices for goods and services in a country. Under conditions of inflation, the prices of things rise over time. Put differently, as inflation rises, every dollar you own buys a smaller percentage of a good or service.

Gold has proved itself time and again to be the perfect hedge for inflation. The real fact about Inflation weakens the Purchasing Power. The value of paper money is worth much less compared to 30 years ago. You can't even buy the same items with the same value. 


2. Gold as a Safe Haven.

Gold is often called the "crisis commodity," because people feel its relative safety when world tensions rise; during such times, it often outperforms other investments. Having a Safe Haven Investment Means You Have Hard Asset

For example, gold prices experienced some major price movements this year in response to the crisis occurring in the European Union. Its price often rises the most when confidence in governments is low. Another good example of the tension between North Korea and the US Government.

Gold is one of the only assets that doesn’t carry any type of risk originating or triggered by another party’s actions or inactions. Counter-party risk doesn’t exist with gold, because you hold your physical gold. 

There’s no other party involved. Nobody can do anything that’s going to impact your actual assets. You’re holding it. It can’t just go away or be stolen by hackers. However, it is important to remember that gold does not provide any income and is therefore not appropriate for investors interested in generating cash flow from their portfolios.
