If you’ve been paying attention to the news in the last few years, chances are that you’ve heard some information on quantitative easing. This term refers to the government’s attempts to stimulate the economy by increasing the amount of dollars circulating in the world financial markets.
As this video from December 2012 explains, an increase in the money supply can dramatically impact the value of the dollar. For this reason, people across the world are beginning to store their savings in the form of gold and silver metals. This investment helps to diversify their portfolios and can help them retain purchasing power in an uncertain financial market.
Unlike paper assets, precious metals will always have value. To learn more about investing in gold and silver, call Capital Gold Group at (800) 510-9594.
