Investing In A Precious Metals IRA

You really can’t avoid hearing about precious metals IRA investing these days. The commercials are on talk radio, they’re on TV; you see ads at your favorite websites, you get emails pitching gold or silver investing . . .

There’s a good reason for all of this. Anyone who wants to protect their portfolio, who is concerned about inflation, who worries about a falling dollar . . . or simply anybody who wants diversity in their investments is looking at adding precious metals.

Personally, one of the things that is causing me to look at gold IRA investing is our Federal Government’s policy of printing more and more money as part of a failed policy to stimulate the economy . . .

You may not want to go ahead and respond to one of those commercials or ads just yet. Because you don’t feel like you have enough information. Now, I’m not saying ignore the ads, ignore the commercials and ignore the emails from the various dealers. In fact, there’s a gold IRA investment specialist that I’ve checked out thoroughly that I’ll recommend later in this article. But there are a number of authority sites that you should also check out as part of getting educated.

Anytime I have difficulty in making a decision it’s almost always due to the fact that I don’t have enough information yet. So with something as important as your investment portfolio and your retirement, I can’t stress enough the importance making an informed decision.

So with that in mind, I’ve taken the time to assemble a number of precious metals authority sites for you to investigate. Now keep in mind, some of these aren’t exactly targeted to the retail investor. And some of them frankly have some “white paper” content that’s very technical and scholarly. But they are all worth looking into to round out your knowledge of gold IRA investing. And since they aren’t selling any physical product, their perspective is valuable.

So here are the sites. I hope you find them helpful:

The American Numismatic Organization:
http://www.money.org/

The World Gold Council:
http://www.gold.org/

The Silver Institute:
http://www.silverinstitute.org/site/

The United States Mint:
www.usmint.gov

Bankrate’s site:
http://www.bankrate.com/finance/investing/invest-precious-metals-1.aspx

These are just a few, but they have more than enough great content to get you started.

Now, about the precious metals investment firm that I mentioned earlier. I’ve checked out a number of these dealers and while some of them are pretty good, my favorite by far is Regal Assets. This is because of their high BBB rating, their guaranteed 7 day delivery, their vast experience with retirement accounts and their overall customer service. But one of the first things that really impressed me was the free gold investors kit that they sent me. It took me at least a couple of hours to go through this thing, and after I finished I felt so much more confident about moving forward with my investments. So in addition, to spending some time at the sites I’ve recommended above, I highly recommend you get your free gold educational kit for IRA investing  and review here.
