Hewlett, NY (WiredPRNews.com) Among precious metals, gold has been the leading investment for centuries. Indeed, in spite of economic shifts and downturns, the leading NY gold buyer claims that gold remains a safe haven against economic, political and social crisis.
The price of gold, like anything else, is driven by supply and demand but also by speculation. Speculation relies on an asset appreciating in price due to factors that cannot be understood at the time of the initial investment. Those factors include things like consumer demand and fluctuating economic conditions.
“Interestingly, the price of gold is mainly affected by changes in sentiment,” said Sy Richards of The Gold Standard of Hewlett, a gold store which specializes in buying and trading gold. “Consumers tend to like gold, so it remains a good investment. “
To become an investor in gold, you must first have an objective in mind. Gold investors fit into three categories:
1. Those who want to hedge uncertainty.
2. Those who want to make a profit.
3. Those who want to combine hedging with potential profit.
Now, with your objective in mind, there are several real world ways to invest, Richards said. You can buy or sell gold bullion (gold bars), gold coins, gold certificates, gold mutual funds and other such options but the largest consumption of gold each year comes from jewelry buyers. Jewelry is a major method of savings in developing economies, he said
In America, many people have unwanted gold jewelry lying around that can easily be converted into cash.
