To be a successful Investor, you must be willing to hedge(bet) against the consensus... and be right more than 50% of the time.  Most individual Investors own no physical Gold or Silver and see it as a "losers" game.  But if you research the portfolios of the banks and most Wealth Management Funds, they have between 10% to 15% of their wealth into physical Gold and Silver.  I suggest you should ask yourself, if Gold is only for losers, why has the price of an ounce of it gone from $32 in 1967, to $1700 in 2018 ?   Are the CEO's of the major banks losers for purchasing so much Gold?  And why does the USA Treasuries have over 8000 tons of Gold?  The US dollar is the preferred World Reserve Currency, but these "losers" are still holding onto a whole bunch of Gold.  And that begs the question, why are there so many sources out there suggesting that only losers invest in physical Gold, when some of the most influential players in the financial markets see the benefit in Gold.?....maybe there's something to it !

 

If you’ve spoken with a successful professional Financial Adviser who truly had your best interest in mind, they likely informed you that it's been used as the absolute determination and protection of wealth for thousands of years, and continues in its role to this day. The USA has been the premier Reserve Currency around the world for many years now. And why?   Mainly because of one fundamental reason that has stayed the test of time.  They have more Gold to back up their financial system, than any other country.

 

First of all, let me start by stating this one main fact that can not be disputed.  If you had invested $20,000 into physical Gold in 2001, as of April 2017, you  would be sitting on $93,000+. That’s an increase of  465% !

Secondly, most people are not aware of how Canadian banks are allowed to operate, and why a currency collapse is a certainty.  Prior to 1995, the backs used to have to follow strict “Fractional Reserve  Banking” requirements, which meant they could only loan out about 10 times more money than they actually had.  But now, that safeguard has been abolished, and the banks can loan out as much money as they want!…..money they don’t have.  Sounds unbelievable  doesn’t it?   But hopefully now you can see why the banks are filthy rich, bringing in Billions of dollars every quarter, as the money they loaned you for your house mortgage, does not and never existed.  So you and all your neighbors are paying the banks real money in interest fees, on money that the banks never had in real, or in any asset holdings.  Pretty sweet deal for them, but it’s totally unsustainable in the long term, and one day soon, the entire system will be forced into devastation, and a new currency will have to be created.  And along with it will be enormous human suffering.  Only people who have true items of wealth will be protected, while the majority of individuals will have to start all over again, just like our great grandparents did when coming to this country in the early 1900’s.

But before you start to convert your hard-earned paper money into Gold, you'll first need to research the history of it, and compare it to what you probably know best, paper money.  Here, I'll share with you some basic starting points that you should consider, but is definitely not intended as an exhaustive argument for investing into gold, but rather just some points of discussion that you may want to consider.

When people ask me, "Why invest in Gold rather than RRSP's", the first thing I usually share with them is something they already know..... Gold has been used for thousands of years as a transfer of wealth(currency).  RRSP's have been around for, oh let's say, about 65 years.  Gold has stood the test of time, and has many uses as a commodity as well.(jewelry, computer circuits, etc).  RRSP's are good to start fires with, but that's about it as they're just paper.  Gold has always been sought after, and is always high-priced, relatively speaking as compared to paper money.  There is no time in history when Gold became worthless, and people just threw it out.  However, that's what happens to RRSP's and Paper Money Currencies quite often.  

 

In North America, back in the early 1970's, we went off the "Gold Standard" and went to a "FIAT System".  The Gold Standard is where a country backs its currency with a physical commodity of wealth, namely the physical metal called Gold.  The more gold the country owns, the more credibility it has to prove to its trading partners that they are what they say they are, and are able to pay back loans, etc. if needed.  The Fiat System on the other hand, is based on nothing.  It's basically an understanding that groups of counties have with each other, that they will all be truthful when it comes to how their country is doing financially, and that they will be able to "pay up" anytime it's required......can you see the problem with this?  If not, it's best you do research into all the ramifications of currency failures over the years around the world. 

 

Now maybe you're asking, "Why is Gold the metal of choice?"  The main reason is very basic.  "An honest day's pay, for an honest day's work".  Gold is difficult to get.  There are no easy short-cuts to get Gold.  Whether it's through mining, prospecting, or buying from a dealer, it's a hard thing to get, or costs a lot.  There's a lot of physical labor, sweat and tears involved, so to get more Gold from the earth, it takes an honest day's work.  Now compare that to Paper Currency.  When a country wants more, they just hit PRINT on their computers, and another 50 million in $100 bills are printed.  How easy is that?  It takes virtually no physical effort or real work.  In a few hours, the country just declares itself worth millions more in value, but really did nothing to get there.  Can you now see that the Fiat System is a flawed system that cannot sustain itself?  Below is a good video more fully explaining where we're at today.

 

When the currencies in North America fail, Gold and Silver will be the only financial instruments that will allow you to maintain your wealth.  You can go anywhere in the world with these precious metals, and the amount of wealth you put into them, can be easily traded directly for food, etc., or traded for the local currency, to be utilized that way.  Or,  if you stay in your country, once a new currency is started up, you simply convert your Gold into that one for your daily needs.  All your RRSP's and old bank accounts holding the old currency will NOT be convertible into the new currency, therefore, for all intents and purposes, will be totally worthless and VOID.

 

Now for a quick word on whether to buy physical Gold and Silver, or Exchange Traded Funds (ETF's).  Well, the main reason to purchase Gold is because of the fundamental advantage it has as being, the real thing.  A real piece of Gold in your hand, is of real value.  A piece of paper that has some ink on it that states you supposedly own some Gold somewhere, is not really worth anything.  Consider the reality, that ETF's are leveraged at an extremely high ratio of real physical Gold, to their issued ETF amount.  Explained in simple terms, for at least every 500 ounces of Gold you pay them for, they only have 1, yes, one ounce of Real Gold in their storage facilities.  BlackRock, a Gold ETF company was recently forced to stop selling, as their ratio grew to over 157 to 1.  I believe you can imagine what will happen when even 2% of the fund holders decide to cash in their ETF's in return for real Gold.  The company will instantly go bankrupt, and everyone who has invested into those funds, will be out all of their investment.  So at that time, it won’t matter what the value of "my Gold" is according to that piece of paper, as the true and realized value will be zero.    This is another reason why I recommend and sell  real, physical Gold.

 

As a last thought, consider this...... Throughout the ages, one ounce of Gold (currently $1750), has always been worth the amount to sustain a family of 4, for one month.(including Food, Clothing and Residence).  When a currency fails because of hyper-inflation, 100 million dollars of that currency will not be enough to buy you one loaf of bread, as it is worthless.(again, review history of currency failures)  But as for Gold and Silver, they have always, and will continue to maintain their WORTH as a commodity, and will allow you to cash-in little-by-little during those rough days, and sustain you and those you love.

SILVER on the other hand, throughout history has been valued to reflect the worth of the average days pay. About 5 ounces of Silver has always been equal to 8 hours work.  For example, back in 1960, when our currency actually contained silver, an decent hourly wage was $3.00 per hour, for a total of $24.00 per day.  Each dollar coin contained .60 ounces of silver.  So .6 x 8 equals 4.8 ounces.  Back then, silver was just under $5/oz.  That means, you would essentially receive 4.8 ounces of silver for a days work.  4.8 oz’s times $5/oz equals $24 per day.  And this is why you can calculate that Silver has been temporarily crushed by all the Shorting being done on the Comex stock exchange.  It’s simple, take 5 ounces of silver, times that by the price per oz, which should give you the average daily wage.  But it only comes to $100, or $12.50 per hour.  Since we know the average wage per hour in Canada is much higher than that, we can safely know that Silver i

If you’ve spoken with a successful professional Financial Adviser who truly had your best interest in mind, they likely informed you that Gold and Silver have historically been used as the absolute determination and protection of wealth for thousands of years, and continues in this role to this very day. The USA has been the premier Reserve Currency around the world for many years now, but why?  Mainly because of one fundamental reason that has stayed the test of time.  They have more Gold to back up their financial system, than any other country on earth.

 

First of all, let me start by stating this one main fact that can not be disputed.  If you had invested $20,000 into physical Gold in 2000 (50 oz’s), as of April 2017, you  would be sitting on $88,000+. That’s an increase of  465% !

Secondly, most people are not aware of how Canadian banks are allowed to operate, and why a currency collapse is a certainty.  Prior to 2014, the backs used to have to follow strict “Fractional Reserve  Banking” requirements, which meant they could only loan out about 10 times more money than they actually had in assets.  But now, that safeguard has been abolished, and the banks can loan out as much money as they want!…..money they don’t have.  So virtually every cent of interest they collect, is free money for them.  Hopefully now you can start to understand how the banks are reporting profits in the Billions of dollars every quarter.  But the scarier part is that this practice is causing huge inflation, which is not sustainable.  Sounds unbelievable  doesn’t it, that the money the banks loaned you for your house mortgage, does not and never did exist, till they created it.  So you and all your neighbors are paying the banks real money in interest fees, on money that the banks never had in any asset holdings.  Pretty sweet deal for them, but it’s totally unsustainable in the long term, and one day soon, the entire system will be forced into devastation, and a new currency will have to be created.  And along with it will be enormous human suffering.  Only people who have true items of wealth will be protected, while the majority of individuals will have to start all over again, just like our great grandparents did when coming to this country in the early 1900’s.

     Back in 1972, the USA went off the "Gold Standard" and went to a "FIAT Currency System".  The Gold Standard is where a country backs its currency with a physical Gold.  The more gold the country owns, the more credibility it has to prove to its trading partners that they are what they say they are, and are able to pay back loans, etc. if needed, just by selling their gold reserves.  The Fiat System on the other hand, is based on nothing.  It's basically an understanding that groups of counties have with each other, that they will all be truthful when it comes to how their country is doing financially, and that they will be able to "pay up" anytime it's required......can you see the problem with this?  If you can’t, might I suggest you do some research into all the ramifications of currency failures over the years around the world. No non-precious metals currency has ever survived.

 

Now maybe you're asking, "Why is Gold the metal of choice?"  The main reason is very basic. Think of the saying,  "an honest day's pay, for an honest day's work".  Gold is difficult to get.  There are no easy short-cuts to get Gold.  Whether it's through mining, prospecting, or buying from a dealer, it's a hard thing to get, or it costs a lot.  There's a lot of physical labor, sweat and tears involved, so to get more Gold from the earth, it takes an honest day's work.  Now let’s compare that to Paper Currency.  When a country wants more, they just hit PRINT on their computers, and another 50 million in $100 bills are printed.  How easy is that?  It takes virtually no physical effort or real work.  In a few hours, the country just declares itself worth millions more in value, but did not do any “work” to get there.  It simply created wealth out of thin air.  I hope you’re seeing what I see, that the Fiat System is a flawed system that cannot sustain itself indefinitely. 

 

When the currencies in North America fail, Gold and Silver will be the only financial instruments that will allow you to maintain your wealth.  You can go anywhere in the world with these precious metals, and the amount of wealth you put into them, can be easily traded directly for food, etc., or converted into the local currency and be utilized that way.  Or,  if you stay in your country, once a new currency is started up, you simply sell your Gold or Silver for the new currency, which will have extremely higher purchasing power per dollar than the old currency.  All your RRSP's and old bank accounts which are tied to the old currency will NOT be convertible into the new currency, therefore, for all intents and purposes, will be totally worthless and VOID.

 

     And now for a quick word on whether to buy physical Gold and Silver, or Exchange Traded Funds (ETF's).  Well, the main reason that Gold is a great financial instrument, is that you have “real” estate…..or, “the real thing”.  A real piece of Gold in your hand has real value.  A piece of paper that has some ink on it which states you supposedly own some Gold somewhere, is not really worth anything.  Liken it to a situation where you were lost out in the forest, and you needed a match to light a fire so you didn’t freeze to death.  What would you rather have… one match that you had paid $3 for, or a piece of paper that stated you had a box of 500 matches that had cost you only $25, but were safely stored in New York somewhere?  Might I suggest that this your answer to this question should help you when you evaluate the ETF’s as an investment option.

 Also consider the reality that ETF's are leveraged at an extremely high ratio of real physical Gold, to their issued ETF amount.  Explained in basic terms, for a minimum of every 50 ounces of Gold you purchase from them, they only have 1, yes, ONE ounce of real Gold in their storage facilities.  BlackRock, a Gold ETF company was recently forced to stop selling, as their ratio grew to over 157 to 1.  I believe you can imagine what will happen when even 2% of the fund holders decide to cash in their ETF's in return for real Gold.  The company will instantly go bankrupt, and everyone who has invested into those funds, will be out all of their investment.  At that time, it won’t matter what the value of "my Gold" is according to that piece of paper, as the true and realized value will be zero.    This is another reason why I recommend and sell the real physical Gold and Silver.

 

As a last thought, consider this...... Throughout the ages, one ounce of Gold (currently $1750), has always been worth the amount to sustain a family of 4, for one month.(including Food, Clothing and Residence).  When a currency fails because of hyper-inflation, 100 million dollars of that currency will not be enough to buy you one loaf of bread, as it is worthless.(again, review history of currency failures)  But as for Gold and Silver, they have always, and will continue to maintain their worth as a commodity, and will allow you to cash-in little-by-little during those rough days, and sustain you and those you love.

"INVEST IN THINGS NOT CONSUMED BY FIRE"

Below you'll find a history video, about the life of Charles Ponzi.  I'd recommend you take the time to watch and learn about his methods, then decide for yourself......what investment today sounds like a Ponzi Scheme?  Is it the age old, tried and tested Gold and Silver markets?  Or could there possibly be other things like, Amazon, Bitcoin, Madoff, or even our own government Treasury?

Watch and decide for yourself.
