Gold Enjoys Resurgence Among Variety of Investors

Release Date: 
Monday, June 14, 2010

The New York Times reports that global concerns about inflation, deflation, government borrowing, and sovereign debt have led private and institutional investors across the spectrum to develop "gold fever" as they seek an "age old refuge" from these economic crises. The Times article noted that gold's major supporters include liberal financier George Soros, Fox News personality Glenn Beck, and top New York hedge fund manager John A. Paulson who earned billions betting against subprime mortgages.

Among the people now moving to gold is Daniel J. Arbess, who manages more than $2 billion for a hedge fund. According to the Times, Mr. Arbess would not have taken a second look at gold a few years ago. Now he's a firm believer because of the risk to "fiat" currencies, i.e., currencies which are not backed by gold.

"'Indebted countries may soon be forced to choose among three politically difficult alternatives: sharp cuts in expenditures, debt default or printing money to pay off debt,' he said, with the last option the most likely outcome. Gold, he said, is a logical hedge against this risk, because firing up the printing presses ignites inflation."

You should review Goldine's Account Agreement along with our risk disclosure booklet, Coin Facts for Investors and Collectors to Consider ®, prior to making your purchase. Goldline has a spread or price difference between our selling price, called the "ask", and our buy-back price, called the "bid". That spread varies depending on coin or bar you acquire. Spreads on 1 oz bullion coins, 90% silver dimes and quarters, and one ounce and larger bullion bars are 13%. All other coins have a spread of 28%. There is also a 1% liquidation fee when you sell your coins back to Goldline. The market must go up enough to overcome this spread before an actual profit is achieved. Precious metals and rare coins can increase or decrease in value. Past performance does not guarantee future results. Coins are a long-term, three- to five-year, preferably five- to ten-year investment. We believe precious metals are suitable for 5% to 20% of the average investment portfolio though others may recommend a different percentage.
