Every day we are confronted, in the national and international press, with reports about financial events of all kinds. A general feeling of uncertainty is being spread and we are all getting the feeling that we are living in turbulent and uncertain times. The trust in the normal values system is disappearing. The stability of several currencies is suffering under the influence of erroneous political and economical decisions and the current stock prices do not correspond with the realistic situation of the worldwide economy. In any event, I do not wish to talk about uncertainties caused by others, since security can and should be obtained by ourselves. Life is a mirror of our own decisions. The decisions we took in the past reflect how we live today. So, whatever we decide today will affect our way of life in the future. If you make a commitment to a debt-free consumption today, then it will be some time before you can call the object of your desire your own, but you will not feel crushed by a huge burden of debt tomorrow. If you decide to acquire gold today, then you will not need to live in fear of having nothing in the future. It is really not necessary for you to share with others the fear and mistrust in the developments of the current economic situation, but just observe the events with the knowledge that you have already provided for your future security. Is gold better than a currency? Better than the Pound Sterling, Dollar, Euro, Yen or Rouble? Of course we are unable to operate without these currencies in our daily lives. For this reason I venture to say that whilst gold may not be better, it is certainly more secure and of more lasting value than currrencies. Gold has always been a synonym for success, happiness, quality, stability and durability. Gold is simply gold and its history, together with its influence and endless historically related events in the long history of mankind make it unique. As unique as the commodity itself. Gold conveys a sense of stability and trust since it retains its purchase power over a long period of time. Gold is acquired with the intention of evading the effects of inflation and currency fluctuations. Gold should not be the only pillar of security or retirement plan, but should definitely be a part of an intelligent and secure savings or retirement Portfolio.
