What Is A Gold IRA?

A gold IRA or precious metals IRA is an “Individual Retirement Account” in which physical gold or other approved precious metals are held in a Secured Third-Party Custodian of your choice. for the benefit of the IRA account owner. It functions the same as a regular IRA; it holds physical coins or bars only instead of holding paper assets.

Why Is Gold So Vital?

In 2008, during the last stock market crash, I watched many of my clients, friends, and family lose more than half of what they'd "saved" for their futures, and now the experts are warning that the cycle is about to go back around the full swing. As the global debt reaches an unsustainable $199,950,079,870,150, economists agree that the end of the dollar as we know it may not last much longer. With gold production cost the highest it's ever been, and the correlation between the spot price of the metal and that production cost being smaller than any other time in history, It might be time to do what my grandfather used to tell me " If it ain't broke then don't fix it." Gold has, is, and always will be worth more than a piece of paper. Banks hold gold to back up their paper currencies, but never have I heard of paper backing Gold up. A man/woman with a stockpile of gold isn't just rich in the value of the dollar; instead, he's very well off no matter where he goes in this world.

Is now a good time to do a rollover into gold?

Gold, more than any other desirable attribute, is wealth preservation. You cannot approach it the way you approach your stock or real estate investments. Timing is not the real issue. The first question you need to ask yourself is whether or not you believe you should own gold. If you answer that question in the affirmative, there is no point in delaying your actual purchase or waiting for a more favorable price that may or may not appear. Cost averaging can be a good strategy. The real goal is to diversify so that your overall wealth isn't compromised by economic dangers and uncertainties like the kind generated by the 2008 financial crisis or the on-going sovereign debt crisis that has produced a deficit of over 22 Million dollars.

What are the mechanics of a gold rollover?

It is quite simple and straightforward. After an initial telephone consultation, the client chooses which trust company he or she wants and then submits the completed paperwork by e-mail, fax, overnight courier, or standard US Mail. The process of opening and funding the account will be handled by the trustees involved in the rollover process.. We traditionally use New Direction , because of their professionalism, up to date. Usually, in about two weeks--sometimes less--the funds are "rolled-over" from the current trustee to the new trustee. At that point, the client can contact Big Thicket to purchase metals for his or her IRA or 401(k).

Is a gold IRA safe?

The real question here is, “Will your retirement account be safe without gold?” 'Because gold prices generally move in the opposite direction of paper assets, adding a gold IRA to a retirement portfolio provides an insurance policy against inflation. This balanced approach smooths out risk, especially over the long term, which makes it a smart choice for retirement investments like IRAs,' explains former U.S. Mint Director Edmund C. Moy.

Can I do a rollover from my current IRA or 401(k)?

Yes. Most precious metals' retirement that we handle begins with a rollover. The current law allows for both transfers from IRAs as well as rollovers from qualified retirement plans, such as 401(k), 401(a), 403(b), 457, Thrift Savings Plan (TSP), and annuities. We have a great deal of experience with this process and can help you navigate it with a minimum of brain damage. Because of the annual fees for storage, insurance, and management (approx. $225/year), precious metals IRAs are most economical when their value is higher, and that is where a rollover makes a great deal of sense. Someone just starting an IRA would need a few years to accumulate a large enough account to make it cost-effective, even with maximum yearly contributions.

The gold price fed on these calamities. In a way, it came to stand for them: it was the re-discovered idol at a time when other gods were falling in a heap of subprime mortgages and credit default swaps and derivative products too complicated even to understand. Against these, gold surged as investors ran to the one currency that has been and always will be the standard of wealth.
