Learn how to buy and invest in gold and other precious metals.

This website walks the layperson through popular ways of investing in gold, and then compares these methods to reveal the most cost-effective ways to buy gold and other precious metals.

I first developed a deep interest in precious metals back in 2012 when I began reading Jim Rogers’ commentaries and taking in his many interviews available on YouTube. From there I read Peter Schiff’s book The Real Crash. This book’s thesis is highly critical of actions taken in response to the 2008 market crash and Great Recession.

It is Schiff’s view that actions taken by the Federal Reserve in coordination with the US government, merely papered over the problems. He believed that these problems would return with a vengeance in the form of a secondary, and worse, crash. The Fed’s toolkit at that point, would no longer be effective Schiff argued.

I went on to read the rest of Schiff’s books, along with commentary by many other thinkers on the subject including Mike “Mish” Shedlock, James G. Rickards, Frank Giustra, analysts from Morgan Stanley, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, and many others. In the process I took in contrarian arguments as well. The outcome was I became fascinated by the role that gold and silver have played in history and intrigued by the question of their role in the near- and mid-term future.

I’ve tried multiple ways of buying and investing in gold, and started this blog to share the lessons I learned. I hope to save you time and money by sharing my experiences.

The goal of this blog is not to offer investment advice, to make predictions, or to side with any of the individuals mentioned. I’m an amateur investor, not a professional. Only you can decide whether you think investing in precious metals is worth it, and if so, what percentage of your portfolio you should to allocate to them.

But if you do invest, you’ll be well-served to consider ways you can do so as cheaply as possible.

Happy investing,
