2. Gold vs. Silver: Which is the Best Investment?

Is there a case for holding both gold and silver?

6. Before Buying a Gold-related ETF Check Out These Alternatives

There are many legitimate reasons to trade in gold and its derivatives. Gold has been proven time and time again to be an excellent “safe haven” investment, a holding that will appreciate in value during times of economic uncertainty. As such, gold may offer some valuable hedging and diversification benefits for a long-term portfolio. A number of exchange-traded products offering exposure to gold prices but not all gold ETFs are created equal. Here’s a quick rundown of factors to consider when making an investment in a gold ETF.

7. Surprise! A Close Look at GLD Reveals What it IS and is NOT

The most common misunderstandings regarding the primary gold ETF, SPDR Gold Trust (NYSE:GLD) is that it buys and sells gold. That is not the case. It is just a paper asset. It is not a way to buy gold and have someone else store your holdings for you. It is just an innovative way to “own gold.” [Below I outline more of just what GLD is and is not:] Words: 1470

8. All Gold & Silver ETFs Are NOT the Same: a Lease vs. Own Comparison

I have always been leery of the two big exchange traded funds, SLV and GLD, because they lease the gold and silver that they sell you. I much prefer the ETFs SGOL, CEF, PSVL and PHYS which actually own the gold and silver they sell you and store it for you segregated vaults. Words: 717

  1. PS: I am referring to Bullion Vault.

  2. Just a few comments in an attempt to be helpful for those weighing these choices:

    –Bullion Vault (BV)’s premiums are the best, but one can only buy and store silver in London, the heart of darkness of the financial world, IMO. Worse, the Rothschild family owns a piece of BV, and that makes them (BV) personna non grata with me, no matter WHAT the assurances. Moreover, the World (anti-)Gold Council, which “supports” BV, has shown itself to be ANYthing but pro-gold and silver, but instead has shown itself to be, if not in the pocket of the anti-gold cabal, at least a friend to it and not to gold, as in with this kind of “friend” gold and those in favor of gold (& silver) / sound currencies don’t need an enemy.

    –GoldMoney (GM) has higher premiums, esp. for smaller amts and esp. for silver, and their storage rates for silver, esp. in london and zurich are quite high. On the other hand, as far as I know, the enemy does not have its fingers in GM. Moreover, the part most don’t consider is that GM charges NO commission or premium for SELLING ones PMs, which one will eventually do, so double BV’s premium or halve GM’s for your true commission (just as in a stock one purchases…one has to take in both buy and sell commissions into acct for actual cost of trading). If buying silver from GM, make sure to store it in HK, as the storage fees are 1/2 that of storage in Zurich.

    Finally, there is the question of PMs being held in storage vs in an account. The fact that GM no longer allows those of us in the US to use GM to pay others in the GM system electronically using gold/silver in our acct (only allowed in the Jersey Islands now), means to me that a GM acct does NOT meet the filing criterion for Form 8938 (FATCA) as the acct is purely a storage acct now, not a transactional acct. (Someone PLEASE correct me if I’m wrong here as I need to know that as well.)…jt

    • JT,
      Thank you for your insights. You seem to be VERY knowledgeable. Could I interest you in writing an article that either (or both) critiques more fully what the above article says (i.e. expand on what you have said) or provide information on a number of other dealers to assist the buying public in making there buying decision. There is going to be a major need for such information in the months/years ahead as the mania phase unfolds so it would be extremely well received i am sure. Contact me here or to editor@munknee.com

      • Hi Lorimer…well, you just read the bulk of my “insights” into the subject. After looking over the choices several years ago, i chose GoldMoney for the reasons I stated. Wish holding silver as not so expensive, but expect the eventual rise in price will make it worthwhile. But beyond what I wrote, i can’t really provide you with much more information than you’ve already provided. Take care…jt

    • I’m looking for one or more places to buy gold and I got the same information about their low premiums and storage prices AND that the wonderful family that is the Rotchilds owns part of it. I share your love for them. The thing is, when the enemy is THE boss, who supposedly owns half of the planet’s wealth, or at least enough to control just about everything, wouldn’t that make something they own the safest place on earth? Or is it the opposite? I really don’t know. What worries me a little is how low their premiums are: 0.12%? Then they GIVE you 4g of free gold just to open an account? Storage at 0.5%/yr? And they can’t even use your gold to play with like banks with your money (10x your money actually)? How do they profit from this? There is “only” 2.2 billions in assets in this company, and around 45,000 accounts.
