3. Gold investment tips
Throughout history, gold has been known as an investment instrument that is safer than other investment instruments such as stocks. This is because gold is resistant to almost all kinds of trouble, from inflation, economic upheaval or currency fluctuations, to war.
When thinking about starting to invest in gold, don’t limit yourself to just buying physical gold, such as coins or gold bars. Alternatives to investing in gold, including buying shares of a gold mining company or gold exchange-traded fund (ETF), can also be an option.
Apart from that, you can also invest in gold with trading options and futures contracts. However, people who choose to invest in gold through options or futures contracts need to actively monitor their holdings so that they can sell, roll or exercise their options before they expire so they are worthless.
“In addition, each of these options includes a certain level of leverage, or debt, by default, so investors who overuse them and experience market losses can see their losses rapidly increase,” said Dock David Treece, a former licensed investment advisor and member of FINRA Small Company Advisory Board in a Forbes article.
