The Ultimate Gold Trade

By: David Morgan, Silver Investor,

What a week for the precious metals! Gold blasts past $1000 per ounce, and silver trades above $21, and then suddenly the floor drops out from under both metals.  In fact, the financial markets in general seem to be reeling from the announcements of further interest rate cuts by the Federal Reserve and Morgan buying Bear Stearns for $2 per share when this company was trading for $170 about a year ago.


What does this have to do with the ultimate gold trade?  Plenty, but we need to develop some background first.


Most good investment ideas are really rather simple, yet many investors get lost in the day-to-day ups and downs of the markets.  Would you like to utilize an investment strategy that could maximize your profit opportunities, minimize your risk, and take very little time or effort?

Would you believe that you could have invested in a decade-long strategy that could have been used to maximize your investment returns, produced gains far in excess of the average investor, and allowed you to spend virtually no time checking your investment returns?

If an investor had bought into the Japanese markets in the early 1980s, had ridden all of the ups and downs, and then cashed out in 1990, the investment gains could have been fantastic.  That investor could have sold at the top of the Japanese craze, bought into technology stocks at just the right time in the early 1990s and, again, could have ridden them all the way to the top in the year 2000.  Again, the gains in that decade could have been truly spectacular. 

Since early in the year 2000, I have been advocating a different decade-long investment strategy, one that I believe has the potential to produce even greater returns than the examples from the 1980s and 1990s.  That strategy is to move largely out of paper assets . . . and into commodities.  I believe that commodities are now in a bull market and that this bull market could last ten years and perhaps longer.

The top-tier of all the commodity markets is money, real money—gold and silver!  During times of economic uncertainty and during the final days of currency destruction, gold and silver rise to the occasion; neither has failed the way every fiat currency throughout history has.

Right now some are having doubts about this precious metals bull market!  You must be made aware that it is the function of a bull market for the “bull” to shake off as many people as possible on the move up to the final climax. We who invest in precious metals are now experiencing one of those times.

However, had you invested in this sector when I was pounding the table in the year 2000, when the financial markets were inundated with the next great technology stock, you would now have the luxury of a large cushion of profits when these corrections take place.

Although the ride is tough, if you start at the beginning, it is easier to hold on to the bull. Is there still time to get into the precious metals? Yes, but few will be willing to climb onto the bull’s back, because the mainstream will be calling gold and silver dead.

The Ultimate Trade—Simply, Buy low hold on through all the dips –Sell High!
