If you are wondering what to do regarding your future investment then you should definitely go for gold investment. Gold acts as your body guard. During this hyperactive market era gold has become the strongest commodity. Many Investment experts have often said that gold should always be an essential part of an individual’s investment portfolio. I agree that gold is not a high return commodity but still it is the safest and the longest player in the market these days. Moreover nowadays it is also believed that gold is one of the best protection cover from financial losses in this time of instability. But one has to be very cautious at times also. One should be fully aware of the present market conditions and currency fluctuations as it is inversely proportional to the price of gold. as for instance if the dollar goes weak it signifies rise in the prices of gold. In my opinion buying Gold Bars or depersonalized gold accounts is the best way to invest in gold as it is the purest form of gold and with gold bars you get the best of your money as compared to gold artifacts and similar goes for the metal accounts. During this particular time Gold is seriously becoming very attractive in the market and if you are amongst those who are really looking forward to try your hand in this kind of investment then just keep few things in mind and you’ll be doing a good job. Here are few tips one should keep in mind before investing in gold:

  1. It is a short term investment – Gold is not a good long term investment commodity as it doesn’t gives as much pay back as other commodities like shares and bonds do.
  2. It is a non consumable commodity – It is a recyclable thing which is really beneficial.
  3. It is a safe game – Dealing in gold is often considered as same as the price of gold never falls. When everything crashes down the stocks, market, equity funds, gold prices always increase. That is why people choose it as a safe mode of investment.
  4. 6 types of gold investment – For effective payback one should always invest in 6 different types of gold commodities, which are:
  1. Jewellery
  2. Coins
  3. Bars
  4. ETF’s (Exchange traded funds)
  5. Shares in gold mining companies
  6. Gold Funds

Well these were few things that a person should keep in mind before investing in gold and also look for the best time to release the investment so that he can make the most out of it.

It’s really hard to deal gold these days specially now that precious metals have appreciated in value. i say if the deal sounds too good to be true, then it most likely is.
