Holistic view on gold investments
How do you become rich through investing in gold? The matter of fact is, investors should hold a long term view on gold and not expect quick returns from the precious metal. They should consider it as a form of diversification to lower risk for their investment portfolio.
Very often, I read articles from many bloggers in The Finance.sg sharing their own stock investments. Many of them pumped in hundred of thousands of dollars on shares, REITs and ETF. Their investment performances were impressive indeed but if the stock market plunged suddenly, large portions of their investment values would be wiped off overnight. How many of these investors can stomach such market swings? That I don’t know but all I know is that every portfolio must be balanced and focusing too much on stocks in your asset allocation is not healthy at all.
Believing in physical gold
Like many gold investors, I only believe in physical gold. In fact, according to London Bullion Market Association, on most trading days, 90% of transactions happened in physical gold and only 10% are in derivative market.
