EDITOR'S NOTE: Inflation is real, it is huge, and it is here to stay. Not even the most optimistic economists (like Fed Chair Jerome Powell) are holding on to hope that inflation is “transitory” at this point. That means that precious metals like gold and silver are becoming more and more attractive as they are a historical hedge against mounting inflation. If you’re looking to protect your wealth by buying non-Fungible gold and silver, DDQ Invest identifies three trends to keep an eye on. These are: “1. Inflationary forces are coming through and appear more persistent than previously assumed; 2. The return of inflation is positive for precious metals, which have historically acted as an inflation hedge; 3. Many gold miners are positioned to weather higher costs, through new technologies and continuous improvements.” These three trends may suggest that now is the best time in recent history to buy non-Fungible gold and silver.
It is increasingly clear that consumers and businesses are facing a period of inflation of a greater magnitude and longevity than predicted by policymakers earlier this year, amid evidence of rising prices globally. As precious metals specialists, we identify three current key trends for investors in this sector –
1. Inflationary forces are coming through and appear more persistent than previously assumed.
2. The return of inflation is positive for precious metals, which have historically acted as an inflation hedge.
3. Many gold miners are positioned to weather higher costs, through new technologies and continuous improvements.
