Precious Metals


Gold and Silver are two of the most highly-sought after precious metals in the world.

They are used in jewelry, electronics, and coinage. Gold & Silver are widely considered to be an effective hedge against inflation and devaluation, which means that when the dollar depreciates, demand for gold/silver increases. In addition, during times of economic and political uncertainty, the demand for Gold rises due to its high intrinsic value and relative stability.

Gold is often purchased to hedge against inflation risk. Because inflation makes the returns on securities such as US Bonds less valuable, Gold is purchased instead. Because Gold is a real good, inflation will only cause the price of Gold to rise. So, while a rise in prices will make investments less profitable, gold maintains its value. Thus, during times of high inflation, Gold prices also rise.
