Invest in Precious Metals

You want to invest in precious metals? Here are reviews of services that I have used personally. You can also read my article on “8 Ways to Invest in Gold”.

Review of the Interactive Brokers by The Wandering Investor

As a mining and international markets investor, having a reliable broker with access to multiple markets is absolutely crucial. Interactive Brokers is my favourite broker due to a few reasons:

1. It’s remarkably easy to open an account with IB, residents of most countries in the world can open an account with them.

2. The trading platform is easy to use and is lower cost than the vast majority of other platforms.

3. It is the trading platform with access to the largest amount of markets. On one platform I can trade in the US, Canada, Australia, the UK, most markets in Europe, Russia, Japan, India, Singapore, Hong Kong and many more markets.

Review of the Louis James – Independent Speculator by The Wandering Investor

I firmly believe that we entered a cycle in which a lot of money will be made in commodities, including precious metals. One way to play this trend, is to invest in mining companies as they provide greater leverage (and risk) than just holding the metal itself. There are three ways you can go about investing in mining shares:

1. Buy ETFs such as the GDX and GDXJ. As in every ETF, you are not only buying good companies but also the bad ones.

2. Wing it by spending a bit of time online and buying shares of mining companies that seem promising. This is the best way to lose money.

3. EDUCATE YOURSELF. Subscribe to various Youtube channels in the mining space and follow experts.

Louis James is one of them. I greatly value his insight and no BS attitude. He, like me, is more of a fundamentalist than a technical trader. Sign up to his free mailing list (Speculator’s Digest) which provides really good information. Later on you can upgrade, or not, to a paid subscription with greater insight.

I’m a satisfied customer. I subscribe to his entry level service “My Take” which is fantastic value for money as it provides you with analysis on hundreds of mining stocks. It’s really helped guide my investments. Click here to check out the website.

Review of BullionStar Singapore by The Wandering Investor

Holding physical gold is the ultimate insurance policy, and could prove to be very profitable in the years to come. You can buy ETFs like the GLD but ultimately paper gold has counterparty risk.

Physical gold is the real thing.

Storing your precious metals in a safe, rich and wealth-friendly country such as Singapore provides you with great diversification. It’s much safer (and cheaper) than storing them in a bank vault in most countries.

Bullionstar offers great value buying, selling and storage services for various precious metals online. It’s a great concept, and you can even pay with crypto. I encourage you to check out their website and learn about their business concept.

Review of Kraken crypto exchange by The Wandering Investor

Whether you like it or not, Bitcoin has become digital gold. Yes, it is incredibly speculative and its volatility is mind-boggling, but times have changed and Bitcoin is now a force to be reckoned with. I believe that anyone who can afford it, should have some exposure to Bitcoin and other cryptos.

All in moderation of course. Don’t overexpose yourself and please educate yourself on the matter.

Kraken is my favourite crypto exchange as it accepts clients from many different jurisdictions, and you can buy your crypto in various currencies.
