The financial markets continue on an unsettled course, and perhaps now is the time to consider re-balancing your portfolio with a World Class Asset with a history of offsetting the uncertainty in stocks and bonds.
APMEX Chief Executive Officer Michael Haynes talks about the instruction from the 2008 financial crisis, when Gold proved its worth as both a source of liquidity and enduring value. Many analysts are stating that today’s situation may be similar to 2008 all
across Europe and potentially, on a global scale. If history is our teacher, Gold could once again prove itself as a long-term storehouse of value during uncertain times.
You may not be able to predict the future. But one thing is certain: If you’ve allocated your investments among asset classes that
historically do not move in the same direction, you’ve got a degree of protection for your portfolio. If you haven’t diversified, perhaps now is the time to improve the balance in your portfolio with all four asset classes: stocks, bonds, cash and Gold — the fourth asset class.
Historically, Gold prices have moved independently of stocks. In fact, beginning three years ago, you can see in the
chart how Gold bounced back from the 2008 financial crisis, while the S&P 500 continued to struggle.
As you consider your own portfolio, keep your investment horizon, at least the next 3 to 5 years, as your guide. History suggests that any pullback in Gold prices is an opportunity to add to your position in Gold.
