Investing Your Retirement Account in Precious Metals
IRA’s or Individual Retirement Accounts, can be invested in precious metals. Many investors are taking advantage of (currently at the time of this writing) lower cost per ounce for gold, silver, platinum, and other precious metals to add stability and a hedge against inflation to their account.
While investing an entire IRA in metals is more for the person with serious pessimism about the economy and the future, investing 20-30% of your retirement account in metals can be a smart, conservatively played hedge against any potential market instability or currency devaluations.
There are plenty of resources for purchasing metals with your IRA account, and even investing in actual coins and bullion where you take physical delivery or store your metals in a vault can be arranged. Ideally you want to be sure your metals are safe!
