“Gold is reactionary, but [growth] doesn’t always happen right away.”
— SBC Gold Founder Eric Sepanek

Whenever you flip on the news or tune into the radio, there’s repetitive talk of inflation, more inflation, and how inflation is hurting the economy. It feels as though we’re in an endless loop of uncertainty, leaving many investors unsure of how to move forward.

Why Hasn’t Gold Prices Taken Off Yet?

Gold is a reactionary asset that tends to increase in value as the rest of the market tanks, making it a fantastic hedge against inflation. However, gold’s increase in value doesn’t always happen in tandem with the rate of inflation. There’s usually a delay before the spot price of gold blasts off.

The 2008 housing market crash is an excellent, recent example of this phenomenon. There was an initial spike in the price of gold following the dramatic market drop, but the big gains were slightly delayed with a massive jump occurring a few years later. Currently, we find ourselves in a similar in-between period, but it’s not going to last long. Gold spot prices are primed for growth.

3 Reasons Why NOW is the Perfect Time to Buy Gold

  1. You have options…for now.
    • There are still some excellent gold products investors can purchase to protect their money from the rapid devaluation of the dollar and greenback-linked assets. However, these options are getting bought up quickly. The longer you wait, the fewer options you have.
  2. Premiums are at attractive levels.
    • Premiums increase with the value of gold. Currently, they’re at advantageous lows after coming down from relative highs last year. It’s recommendable for investors to make the most of these lower levels before they spike again when demand reaches new highs.
  3. Gold is getting harder to buy.
    • More and more investors are pouring their money into gold in anticipation of a major economic “supperbubble”. Gold and other precious metals are getting increasingly hard to buy in large quantities due to a finite global supply. You should start buying now before things get even more limited.
