Is Investing in Gold a Good Idea Now?

Investing in gold has been a popular choice for investors for centuries.



Investing in gold has been a popular choice for investors for centuries. It has been valued as a store of wealth and a safe haven asset that can protect against economic uncertainty. In times of rising inflation and falling stock prices, investing in gold can be an excellent idea. In this article, we will explore the reasons why gold is a great investment in such times and why investors should consider including it in their portfolio.

Inflation is a significant concern for investors because it erodes the purchasing power of their money. As the prices of goods and services rise, the value of currency declines. This makes it more expensive for investors to buy the same goods and services, reducing their purchasing power. Inflation can also lead to lower interest rates, which can further reduce the value of savings and investments.

Gold is often considered an inflation hedge because its value tends to rise during periods of high inflation. This is because the price of gold is tied to the global supply and demand for the metal. When inflation rises, investors often seek out assets that are considered safe havens, like gold. As more investors buy gold, demand for the metal increases, pushing up its price.

Another reason why gold is a great investment when inflation is rising is that it is not tied to any particular currency or economy. Unlike stocks, bonds, or real estate, gold is a physical asset that can be held outside of the financial system. This means that its value is not directly affected by the performance of any particular economy or currency.

When stock prices are falling, investors often look for alternative assets to diversify their portfolio and reduce their risk exposure. Gold can be an excellent addition to a portfolio during such times because it has a low correlation with stocks. This means that when stock prices are falling, the price of gold is often rising, providing investors with a way to offset losses in their equity investments.

The price of gold is also less volatile than the stock market. While stock prices can fluctuate dramatically in response to news or events, the price of gold tends to be more stable. This makes it a useful asset for investors who are looking for a way to preserve their wealth without exposing themselves to the risks of the stock market.

Another reason why gold is a great investment during times of economic uncertainty is that it is a highly liquid asset. This means that it can be easily bought and sold on the open market, providing investors with a way to quickly convert their assets into cash. This can be particularly useful during times of economic stress when access to cash may be limited.

Investing in gold can also provide investors with a way to diversify their portfolio beyond traditional assets like stocks and bonds. By holding a mix of assets that are not closely correlated with each other, investors can reduce their overall portfolio risk and potentially increase their returns. This is because diversification can help to offset losses in one asset class with gains in another.

There are several ways that investors can invest in gold. One way is to buy physical gold, such as coins or bars, and hold it in a secure location. Another option is to invest in exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that are backed by physical gold. These funds track the price of gold and can be bought and sold on stock exchanges like regular stocks.

Investors can also invest in gold mining companies. These companies are involved in the exploration, extraction, and sale of gold. Investing in gold mining stocks can be a way to gain exposure to the gold market while also benefiting from the growth potential of individual companies.

Investing in gold can be an excellent idea when inflation is rising and stock prices are falling. Gold is often considered an inflation hedge because its value tends to rise during periods of high inflation. It is also a safe haven asset that can protect against economic uncertainty.

America in the Hands of Arrogant Fools

The field is tilted, and top officials have been paid off; still, we must win



As retail crime sprees proliferate across the U.S., this civil and social catastrophe is roundly ignored by the mainstream media as usual. Hundreds of youths marauded through the Chicago’s Loop and Lakefront, for example, breaking into stores, stomping on vehicles, lighting fires, and thoroughly pulverizing defenseless people. Similar occurrences have taken place in New York, San Francisco, Portland, and Minneapolis, among other cities.

A Dubious Future?

I circulated some links about such mayhem to some of my Conservative high school classmates. One wrote back saying, “Maybe we’ll win back power and save this country. Maybe we won’t. I don’t know anymore. Whereas I used to be a little bummed about getting older, I am now glad my shelf life isn’t that long…”

She continued, “The turmoil, though, isn’t just about my feelings or the feelings of our generation. While it hurts my heart to watch America being destroyed by arrogant fools, it’s about what is going to remain of this good and great country for the next generations if the progressives aren’t stopped. I keep vowing to turn off the news, but I won’t allow myself to become ignorant. Too many have.”

Another classmate wrote back and said, “I read that incoming (in Chicago) Mayor Brandon Johnson and outgoing Mayor Lori Lightfoot each essentially said the weather was warm… and the kids have been denied, so it’s all understandable. Ridiculous excuses for lawlessness. The Left is trying to destroy the country with all the Soros-appointed DA’s.”

What America Was

Another classmate, Tony, a perceptive individual with numerous grandchildren, wrote back, “Our country is in steep decline. I don’t know how to help. My grandchildren will never know what America was. What’s good is bad and what’s bad is good. We have to stop rewarding the worst of us.”

His words shook me to the core. What will our children and grandchildren experience in a declining America as they grow up? Will they ever know that most communities, most of the time, were peaceful? That the law mattered? That elected officials intended to serve, not to generate personal wealth?

What will anyone know if no traces remain? If truth no longer matters? A case in point: some school districts now issue textbooks which claim that Donald Trump did collude with Russia to win the 2016 election.

From the Durham report on down, this assertion has been so completely disproven over the last five years, it is astonishing that any author or publisher would have the gall to print such lies in books, let alone in textbooks. Such falsehoods are being stamped into precious young minds, intentionally poisoning them and molding them to adopt far Leftist causes.

We Have No Choice

As parents and grandparents, we need to be as vigilant as the law allows. As citizens, in a still-free society, we must uphold what it means to have a democracy, to hold public office, and to be accountable.

As we’ve witnessed too often, for years now, the Left seems to be above the law. Regardless of their crimes, from the highest levels of government to small towns, no appropriate redress is made.

The U.S. Department of Justice constantly delays or avoids issues. Consider the countless revelations being exposed about the Biden Crime Family and how they massively sold out America to line their own pockets. Maybe action will be taken this time, but it seems doubtful. The nation’s chief law enforcement officer, Attorney General Merrick Garland, is corrupt and complicit. He belongs in prison, but still he rules.

Have whistleblowers now started to come forward because they’ve been anointed by the Left? Have the Democrats determined that by dooming Biden, they can install someone else as president? They are fairly sure that he and the inept, widely unpopular Kamala Harris, certainly useful puppets, will lose big time, even with the Democrats’ massive cheating.

Preventing the Tragedy

We have no choice but to expose and circulate the facts about the lawlessness of the Left, the manipulation, the unending crimes, and the election tampering. Indeed, exposing their sheer evil is a mission we cannot shirk.

If we want to prevent the tragedy of kids growing up never knowing the true America, the clock is ticking. There are no timeouts, the field is tilted, and top officials have been paid off; still, we must win. Not just for ourselves or our children and grandchildren, but for the entire world. Yes, the ramifications are enormous.

The left has long worked to overthrow America and all that it stands for. They have been working at it since early in the 1900’s and it took up more speed in the late 60’s and early 70’s with the rise of the radical left. PolitiCrossing founder Chris Widener explains the three-pronged attack and how it is almost complete, as well as the only things we can do to save ourselves and this country we love.
