2 With gold and silver prices making new highs over the last several years, many investors are just now beginning to turn their attention to the precious metals markets. Gold and silver can play an important role in balancing your investment portfolio as it has traditionally offered a hedge of protection against out-of-control inflation, which may be on the horizon in the U.S. Wise investors seeking to protect their purchasing power know that precious metals offer a powerful solution. CURRENCY IS A PROMISE. GOLD IS MONEY. As various nations and empires have risen, they inevitably attempt to create their own currency. These currencies more often than not, have been paper. When these paper currencies are not backed up by something of real value like gold or silver they are eventually destroyed through bad economic decisions on the part of the nation or empire. Because precious metals have a strong track record of maintaining their value in times of economic crisis,smart investors tend to sell their currency for the safety of precious metals in times of crisis. Time and time again, precious metals have been one of the sole beneficiaries of poor monetary policies. GOLD IS PROVEN HEDGE AGAINST A FALLING DOLLAR AND INFLATION. Throughout history, gold has been considered the ultimate hedge against the ravages of inflation. History shows that as inflation goes up, so does the price of gold. In fact, the five years in which U.S. inflation was at its highest were 1946, 1974, 1975, 1979, and During those five years, the average real return on stocks, as measured by the Dow, was %; THE AVERAGE REAL RETURN ON GOLD WAS 130.4%! Today, a growing number of economic factors are leading most wise investors to one conclusion: A perfect inflationary storm is on America s horizon. Those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it. George Santayana

3 ECONOMIC FORECAST: A PERFECT INFLATIONARY STORM Today, the Federal government and the Federal Reserve are doing all they can to prevent our economic crisis from getting any worse. History has proven that the more government tries to help the worse the situation becomes. So far, Washington s solution has been designed to spur massive inflation: 1) Flooding the economy with trillions of dollars worth of financial stimulus 2) Running the largest trade deficit, budget deficit, and overall national debt in world history 3) Maintaining an easy money policy by keeping interest rates at all-time historic lows While all of these are extremely dangerous economic trends, investors who own gold have experienced double digit growth each year for at least the last ten years! And as things continue to get worse, gold is expected to do even better as more and more investors flee to the safety offered by the precious metal. GOLD: GROWING DEMAND AND DECLINING PRODUCTION Global demand for gold is increasing at unprecedented rates while gold production is declining. GROWING GLOBAL DEMAND Investment demand for gold is rapidly accelerating around the world as investors and central banks seek asset protection from the world s growing economic crisis. Central banks have been net buyers since 2009 and, over the last year, added the most gold to their reserves since Furthermore, both China and India have been purchasing unprecedented quantities of gold, not only at the central-bank level but also by encouraging their increasingly well-off citizens to accumulate bullion. DECLINING PRODUCTION While demand continues to grow globally, gold mining outputs continue to be weak and are not anticipated to rise for several years if at all. Global gold production has not surpassed its record output in 2000, leading some experts in the mining industry to wonder whether the world has hit peak gold. And with central banks as net gold buyers, they are no longer in a position to supply the gold necessary to keep the market in equilibrium. call Tom Cloud at (800) For the best prices including

4 AVOID THE COMMON MISTAKES OF NEW INVESTORS 1. BEING TALKED INTO BUYING THE MORE EXPENSIVE NUMISMATIC (COLLECTOR S) COINS INSTEAD OF SIMPLY BUYING THE LESS EXPENSIVE BULLION COINS AND BARS. A good rule of thumb is to leave rare coin buying to rare coin dealers. 2. BUYING GOLD ETF S AND THEN THINKING THAT THEY OWN PHYSICAL GOLD. Remember, if you don t hold it, you don t own it. 3. HAVING UNREALISTIC SHORT-TERM EXPECTATIONS. Your investments in gold should be viewed as a long-term investment. Gold offers capital preservation first, and capital appreciation second. 4. BUYING FROM MULTIPLE DEALERS. Buying from several different dealers will increase your overall expenses through various mark-ups and the loss of bulk pricing discounts. It is usually best to find one single dealer that suits your needs. 5. KNOWING HOW MUCH TO INVEST. A common mistake is either putting too much or too little into precious metals. For gold, shoot to invest no less than 10% and no more than 25% of your available assets.
