Read this before investing in Gold
Gold bullion business was remarkable. Not only experienced investors, and even mothers-
housewives and bachelors who have more money perfunctory, busy-busy shopping commodities.
Marketing that offers investment was no less agile - can come to the house for the presentation.
Therefore, we should understand a few things that affect the investment value of this commodity.
Do not get hit by persuasion or even exposed to hypnotic pseudo-profits.
Here are some things to consider before deciding to invest gold, either through a system of buying
and selling or pawning.
First, realize that the nature of investment - gold investment is no exception - tend to be speculative.
You can profit, could also lose money. Typically, to reduce potential losses, calculation used by
inserting an influential variable. Both positive and negative.
For this reason, it is advisable to invest more money (beyond the monthly operational costs) and not
all at once in one type of investment.
Second, do not be fooled thinking and seduction that gold prices always go up. In this year alone has
several times happened fluctuations. September prices for example, higher than in October. The
increase actually occurs on an annual average prices.
However, the average annual increase that was not always great. In the exchanges of London, during
the year 2000-2001, changes in gold prices even negative (-1.7 percent and -3.9 percent). Or, in 2005
and 2009, only three percent annual increase.
The only period of rising prices reached an 30-percent figure, as many simulation calculations made
while persuading potential investors, is the year 2008. Therefore, the act of persuasion kritislah
marketers or people who will manage your investment.
Third, like other commodities, gold prices are influenced by demand and supply conditions. One
thing to also keep in mind, Bank Indonesia also make buying and selling gold - which is usually used
to maintain monetary stability. Last year, Bank Indonesia and the International Monetary Fund (IMF)
took off as much as 53.2 tons of gold.
When the gold price changes only three per cent, namely in 2005 and 2009, the central bank and the
IMF in the previous year flushed the market with 395.8 and 157 tons. That's the data that was
launched by the World Gold Council.
Currently, there is an agreement of the central bank's so-called Central Bank Gold Agreement, so
that the gold which was released in not more than 400 tons.
In addition, macro-economic indicators such as interest rates, exchange rates, let alone the capital
market indicators, can directly affect the price of gold. If there is an irresistible offer from interest
rates, or there is excitement in the stock market, and could also be in the bond market, the flow of
funds can be moved. The profits will leave the gold hunters.
Fourth, if you ultimately decide the investment in commodities gold, do not forget to discount
nominal profits obtained by inflation. Thus, the advantage gained is that really real or apparent. If
the benefits as promised, let's say 15 percent, while inflation averaged 6 percent, the real advantage
is 9 percent.
However, the data looked in 2005 and 2009, when discounted by inflation, then even greater losses.
In addition, in nominal terms should also be reduced to the cost of storage if you want to keep it
physical or administrative costs eandainya "endorsed" the investment manager.
For this reason, identify investment land before entering into it. And make sure the funds are
invested more funds (instead of daily fee). Do not even fall. Also, remember well the message
Warren Buffett, whose wealth magnets American business reached $ 39 billion: "Never invest in a
business you can not understand."
Buffett seemed to want to emphasize, do not get stung by poison behind the sweet seduction of
