International Investments: Silver Protects and Profits
By Gary Scott

international investment philosophy

International investments can help protect against a falling US dollar. Precious metals at times also protect against currency turmoil. In 2004 one of our messages shared the fact that I speak at many global investment seminars with Michael Checkan, one of the true foreign exchange and precious metal experts in the U.S. His said that this was the decade of the commodity. “The bull market in commodities had a number of years to still run”. His prediction was that the dramatic upward moves in the metals would only be coming in President Bush's second four years and as the decade for commodities we had something to look forward to over the next 7 years. He has been very correct!

So I took note of what he has now written about silver and share it here with you.

He believes that this bull market will continue throughout this decade and into the next, something like the volatile markets after President Nixon closed the gold window in August 1971. He outlined many reasons why reasons why including increasing demand for physical commodities, rapid growth of Asian economies and supply shortages, which are not likely to be corrected quickly. He also feels that the huge US fiscal and foreign trade deficits will push the US dollar down and commodity prices up.

In Michael’s opinion, silver holds one of the best opportunities for reward. The price of silver since January 2000 has increased from $5.40 per ounce to $14.28 per ounce in April 2006. This is a 175% increase in the last 5 years. Gold's all time high was $850.00 per ounce while silver's all time high was $50.00 per ounce. The all time high for gold could come while the all time high for silver would need multiples to be reached. Bottom line, silver is still cheap at $14.28 per ounce.

Just keep in mind the warning we shared about gold yesterday. Gold and silver are in a price stampede. Their prices will rise too high and then drop. Some investors will make a lot from this because they do not get caught in the mania. Most will lose. Some will lose a lot. Invest intelligently. By all means invest in gold and silver as insurance against currency turmoil and inflation. But, if you speculate and especially if you leverage your speculation, do not risk more than you can afford to lose.

If you’re interested in adding silver to your portfolio, Michael’s firm offers the Perth Mint Certificate Program. Precious metals purchased from and stored with the Perth Mint are fully guaranteed by the government of the State of Western Australia, a politically and economically stable government that boasts an AAA rating from Standard and Poor's.
