Precious Metals Buying Guide

Welcome to our precious metals buying guide – whether a newcomer or an experienced stacker, we break down all the essential education around getting started securing physical gold, silver, platinum, and palladium to help diversify your holdings.

Top Reasons to Invest in Physical Metals

Owning tangible assets outside the traditional financial system provides stability amid stock market fluctuations. Precious metals have intrinsic value for manufacturing or beauty purposes aside from monetary worth. These alternative stores of wealth endure and increase when other paper currency-denominated assets decline, offering generational wealth transfer and inflation hedging capabilities unmatched by most asset classes. Learn why families and central banks hold precious metal reserves as crisis insurance and economic uncertainty protection through turmoil.

How Much of Your Investment Portfolio Should Be in Precious Metals?

While holding at least some physical precious metals can benefit most portfolios seeking diversification, recommended allocation ranges vary. Conservative financial planners suggest a 1%-20% share of total holdings depending on your personalized risk tolerance, investment timeline, and target retirement savings. However, historical crisis performance also shows that higher 25%-50% allocations to precious metals weather downturns better for some. Contact us directly and we guide newcomers and discuss specifics around building towards your ideal mix of precious metals suited to your economic outlook.

Which Precious Metals Should I Purchase?

The asset class offers variety to meet different investing goals. Gold and silver represent affordable options with the most liquidity. Platinum and palladium offer additional diversification more specialized relative to demand drivers. Blending across all four precious metals allows customization catered to needs. Within each category, buyers can choose between coins, bars, rounds, jewelry-grade items, or raw precious metal in shot or grain form for those creating custom pieces. Reach out and our experts educate around the pros and cons of each product format to best match personal plans.

When Should I Buy Precious Metals?

Timing entries during repeating market cycles can improve long-run investing performance. Seasoned investors strategically scale into positions on downward trajectory pullbacks ideally in the autumn months when metals mining output peaks. However, getting started right away helps overcome analysis paralysis. Regularly dollar cost averaging even small $50-$500 monthly allocations adds up substantially over years while smoothing short-run volatility. This hands-off approach works for all experience levels rather than watching daily price charts which can feel overwhelming initially. The best time to begin is now!
