Working with millions of investors we tend to limp along at times when the markets are not strong and it appears that every decision made is a bad choice. In 2022, the markets are freighting, one day up 300 points and the next down 500 points. The interest rates are up and the market takes a crass. It’s so difficult to make an educated decision for your retirement account.
Checking out alternative investments may be the best option for now. If you are into remodeling a house and taking a chance on the real estate market, maybe you could be a flipper or buy-and-hold investor.
But if you don’t want to be hands-on with an investment, consider precious metals as an alternative investment option. With physical precious metals, you are not tied to the stock market and fluctuations there, you are not tied to the dollar and the decrease there, and you are not tied to a particular gold mining company which again is controlled through the stock market.
Owning physical precious metals whether in a Gold IRA or by purchasing with CASH, you have an asset that you don’t need to babysit. Buy and hold is the best option for physical precious metals. Use gold or silver as a hedge for your portfolio against inflation and a potential recession. Having, gold and silver coins available in your safe allows you to liquidate them fast at a local coin shop. You get all the benefits of an IRA if you choose to buy within a Gold IRA.
Don’t stumble on your retirement account. Don’t take the I won’t look at its approach or head in the sand approach. Be proactive, consider a self-directed IRA so you can purchase various alternative investments and reap the rewards of taxation later.
