Gold Investment
Since centuries ago many people investing in Gold or saving assets of their wealth in the form of these metals. Why? Since this precious yellow metal is everybody’s dream due to its uniqueness: a blend of beauty, rarity, and its weathered and of course barely cracked in time.

Gold also has been used as a reserve of wealth and means of exchange in the community. The people generally want to own gold as insurance against things that are not unexpected in lieu of cash.
Even a few years back gold was regarded as an asset that should be owned by investors as part of their portfolio. Gold Investment may be intangible in the form of gold bullion, gold leaf, shares in gold companies, gold investment company, letters of gold futures and gold options.

You should know that the monetary authorities such as the Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has long used its wealth of gold as a reserve. What are the implications? The public would be confident knowing that Central Bank gold saving - an enduring asset and goods that tend not affected by inflation as cash.
Gold investment is still viable for the short term. The reason the world gold price is expected to level or price of 1550 U.S. dollars per troy ounce until the end of 2011. In this week's gold price trading gold on the world market of about 1475 U.S. dollars per troy ounce last month but only U.S. $ 1437.58 per troy ounce.

Initially, following the improving world economy, investors began to invest U.S. dollars, so that investment occur evenly between gold and stocks, which means the increase is linear when the U.S. has also been improved. But recent U.S. economic recovery is slow cause the value of the dollar down, so prices are soaring price of gold.

"In addition to the Libya crisis, the bargaining position of the U.S. dollar is still weak, so many turn to invest in gold. This condition coupled with China and India are aggressively buying gold," Kelvin Han prediction of ATPF Traders Academy after the seminar on gold investments, Saturday (9 / 4 / 2011).

Interestingly, this experts of investment from Singapore predicts, after the price of gold reached the top end of this year, the price will freefall. He even dared to predict the price dropped only worth 1200 U.S. dollars per troy ounce but will rise again. "When the price of 1200 U.S. dollars per troy ounce time to buy. Price then crept up and skyrocketed, could even exceed 1650 U.S. dollars only but can be up to 2,000 U.S. dollars per troy ounce for another year or 2012 so that benefit the investors," said Kelvin.

Since 2001, gold became one of investmnet products that deliver a positive return or result in any calendar year. A money USD 1 million invested 10 years ago when it will be worth more than $ 4 million. Meanwhile, if in the form of commodities will only generate USD 3.57 million, 2.68 million for oil and only $ 1.9 million in bonds

Gold can also be traded for profit so there is good gold spot market and futures. When we went to the bank or mortgage Islamic banks do exist "opportunity cost" of gold store. But cost savings is worth is far smaller than the average increase of gold each year. Opportunity cost of storing gold in the bank or mortgage Islamic banks could be considered much safer than you keep it in your own home.

But of course you are not advised to put 100% of your assets in gold investment or any investing portfolio of assets , it was not wise if you put all your eggs in one basket though gold prices tend to rise steadily from year to year.
