How much of my portfolio should be invested in precious metals?
Most economists recommend holding between 5-15% of your portfolio in precious metals. Precious metals provide valuable protection against inflation, uncertainty in the futures market, and fluctuating interest rates. Gold is also a great way to diversify your investment portfolio.
What is the benefit of purchasing large gold bars?
Buying gold as bars decreases the premium you pay per ounce. There is no need to worry, however, if you choose to purchase smaller bars; Provident offers competitive pricing on all bullion, regardless of size.
Which mint makes the best gold bar?
Every bullion product offered by Provident Metals is sourced from the best mints around the world. While design may vary between product, each gold bar we offer is composed of investment quality gold, and qualifies for a precious metals IRA.
Provident offers both sovereign and privately minted gold bars to satisfy the investing preferences of our customers. The premium on sovereign bullion is often higher than privately minted bullion because the quality and purity of all sovereign bullion is guaranteed by the government that produces it. Private mints offer bullion with a greater variety of designs and lower premiums, making them the favorite of many investors.
How is the price of gold determined, and when is a good time to buy?
The price of a gold bar is determined by the spot price of gold, as measured on the COMEX (Commodities Exchange). A myriad of factors affect spot price, so you are likely to see constant changes in the price of gold. Dealers have no influence on spot price, but each dealer determines its own premium over spot price. Provident offers industry low pricing and weekly sales to give our customers the most bang for their buck.
