Why Choosing a Precious Metals IRA ?

When you look at the vastly different life outcomes of schoolmates and kids who grew up together, there's always one question to ask: Why should I plan wisely for retirement?

We've all known one of "those people". You know, the type where everything seems to come easily for them. They were popular in high school, got perfect scores without studying, married wonderful spouses and had fantastic kids, worked high-powered jobs, and had made more than enough money to retire before they were 40.

Meanwhile, in the same towns and going to the same schools, there were people whose lives were characterized mostly by struggle. Whether you were talking about grades or money, these individuals had to work hard for everything they had.

These folks generally came from similar circumstances. Family relationships, local culture, and socioeconomic status didn't usually differ substantially or anything like that. So, how is it that some people grow up to be a Donald Trump or Carlos Slim while others --some of whom ran in the same circles and went to the same schools- never reach those heights? This is a question that has stumped and fascinated people for years. Entire books, documentaries, and studies have been published on the subject.

It used to be that parents taught their kids that the only way to succeed was to "work hard". Lots of people grew up hearing about the Protestant work ethic, pulling yourself up by the bootstraps, putting in elbow grease, and so on and so forth. What those well-meaning folks didn't realize was that the rules have changed. How many people out there have worked for 40 years only to live on a limited fixed income afterward? How many people have tackled multiple jobs just to make ends meet?

The 2008 financial crisis further brought home the reality that simply working hard isn't enough anymore. Regular Janes and Joes have to work hard and work smart. This is what separates the investors who make it from the ones who spend their whole lives treading water.

Retirement ought to be about enjoying the golden years. It should be about spending more time with your spouse and kids. It should be about traveling, new hobbies, and doing the things you've always dreamed of but never had the time to do.

Coincidentally, this is where knowing that a precious metals IRA account is the best way to guarantee such a future. Why? Because in terms of results, this is an investment strategy that's practically guaranteed to build real worth and give you real assets.

Many gold bullion distributers act like gold is some sort of magic elixir. Even here we've talked about how gold is an incredible asset that's sure to maintain its worth. What potential buyers don't always get clued in on is "Why" everyone's so confident about this particular precious metal.

This is a shame because the answer is actually rooted in basic Economics...

Supply and Demand

Economics can be complicated but no matter what you're dissecting, it all goes back to the fundamentals: supply and demand. Generally speaking, higher demand combined with lower supply is the money-making combination that makes something valuable. Since there's a limited supply of gold worldwide but no shortage of people who want to own it, gold ,silver,platinum and palladium are a sound investment no matter what's going on in the market.

The 2008 fiasco showed that nothing's guaranteed in the world of finance. One day people were going about their lives like normal and the next they're out of their homes and battling for employment. What many folks haven't realized is that they don't have to live paycheck to paycheck. Why should your financial future be in the hands of a market that's known for its unpredictability? Why not invest in something you can touch? Why not put your money into an investment that's virtually guaranteed to produce results?

We live in uncertain times. As we learned in the recent global crisis, nobody can predict the future. Why should you and your family have to pay for that?

• Hedge Your Bets

In the quest for that Holy Grail investment, many people saving for retirement over-commit and find themselves putting all their eggs into one basket. Sometimes this happens because folks are busy. Trying to put more money in their 401K's and just trying to make it from week to week. Life happens. We get it.

That being said, folks learned the hard way in 2008 that it's possible to lose everything in an instant. Banks and mega-corporations might have tax shelters and other protections, but who's looking out for the little guys?

Gold and silver let you in on the secret that industry insiders won't tell you about: Protect your assets and limit your exposure.

• Have Safety

Naturally, you want to put your money in strong positions. The largest obstacle between aspiring investors and success, however, is running out of funds. You might be making all the right moves, but without enough money you could find yourself in a precarious place financially. So if you're investing and working on your portfolio for the long haul, it's in your best interests to have...more money at your disposal.

Gold alone allows you to stabilize your portfolio and maybe even send some capital towards investments that need it.

• A Viable Long-term Strategy

If you're another one of many people hanging on for dear life in the roller coaster that is today's economy, you've seen firsthand how stocks can be volatile and funds can go under in the blink of an eye. For this reason, tangible assets are becoming more popular. After all, there's something about being able to see and touch your investment that promotes peace of mind.

Gold will always be valuable. That's a simple fact you'll literally be taking to the bank once you've found quality gold bullion to buy.
