What do U.S. Gold Investors Say About The Certified Gold Exchange?

Is “America’s Trusted Source For Gold” just a company slogan, or do those words truly represent what U.S. gold investors think about the Certified Gold Exchange?

The Certified Gold Exchange encourages client feedback; in fact, the company sends satisfaction surveys to clients after each transaction. Here are a few examples of real client feedback about the Certified Gold Exchange:

     “When I first did business with you, I was a little skeptical. Nearly 10 years later, I now know that there is nobody in the industry that does it better than you.” - Larry H.; Charlotte, NC

     “Thank you for all the genuine support. With your help I have been able to preserve the wealth in my IRA and profit better than any stock ever dreamed of.” - Linda B.; Boston, MA

Online forums created for the purpose of reviewing gold dealers have also been favorable to the Certified Gold Exchange and its brokers. The Better Business Bureau rates the Certified Gold Exchange as an A+ gold dealer, and every Certified Gold Exchange Trustlink reviewer as of May 2015 gave the company a 5-star rating.

Google encourages web users to rate and review the Certified Gold Exchange using another 5-star system that also allows comments. Each Certified Gold Exchange Google Review poster has rewarded CGE with a perfect Google 5-star rating as of May 2015. Some recent comments include:

     “Above and will not be disappointed.”
     “The staff know their facts.”
     “Best gold dealer ever.”
     “Super service.”

Despite the Certified Gold Exchange’s size, it maintains an impeccable and personable customer service record - in short, the company does a good job communicating with, and managing the expectations of, each client.

     “They have always treated me with great respect and given extraordinary personal attention.”

     “Personable sales staff with attention to your own details.”

Above and Beyond

On more than one occasion, gold buyers have mentioned that it was difficult to open CGE’s boxes due to the company’s “enthusiastic” packaging methods. Rest assured that this is for the safety and security of both the buyer and the seller.

How to Buy Silver from the Certified Gold Exchange

The Certified Gold Exchange actively trades in silver, and many investors who start off with “America’s Trusted Source For Gold” eventually decide to invest in silver, too. The steps to investing in silver with the Certified Gold Exchange are as follows:

1.    Decide how much money you’d like to invest into the silver market, and know where the money is coming from and how much you’re currently earning (or losing). Your silver adviser needs to know these things in order to help you choose the right position and to see if the Certified Gold Exchange can meet your expectations and help you outperform your current investments. Sometimes, it just doesn’t make sense to invest in silver and since all of CGE’s silver advisers are non-commissioned they’ll need to obtain permission from a supervisor before selling silver to someone to whom it doesn’t make financial sense.

2.    Select the silver coins and/or bars you’d like to buy. The Certified Gold Exchange stocks a wide variety of silver investments, including:

     Johnson-Matthey silver bullion bars
     Sunshine Mint silver bullion bars
     American Eagle & Canadian Maple Leaf silver bullion coins
     American Eagle Proof silver coins (with U.S. Mint box and certificate of authenticity)
     Pre-1935 silver coins (Morgan and Peace dollars) certified by PCGS or NGC

3.    Complete the recorded confirmation of your order while on the telephone with your CGE silver adviser, and sign and return CGE’s Shipping Insurance & Account Agreement (SIAA). The confirmation states the specific number and type of silver products that you requested to invest in, and the SIAA allows CGE to ship your silver to you fully insured and free-of-charge.

4.    Take delivery of your silver investments, which usually arrive the day after shipping. CGE ships orders within 3 business days after receipt of a bank wire and within 10 days after receipt of a personal or company check. Your silver will arrive at your door or P.O. box via USPS Express Mail, and your silver adviser will be sure to provide you with the specifics surrounding your order.

Gold Price Falls Sharply on Technical Factors, Competition

The gold spot price fell by as much as $23.40 on Tuesday morning due to a slew of technical factors that combined to force gold closer to the $1,200 per ounce level. As of 1pm EST gold’s spot price was $1,209.40, down $19.50 for the trading session.
Gold’s steep decline today has been attributed by Certified Gold Exchange analysts to a variety of factors, including bearish technical indicators that show gold could lose more ground before rebounding. The yellow metal is at a 5-week low right now because the U.S. Dollar Index has been rising steadily for over a month.

Interest rates have been a key driver of gold and silver prices historically, and current gold price movement indicates this is still the case. Although the Federal Reserve’s head, Janet Yellen, has indicated that interest rates will most likely rise in the first half of 2015, the current prime lending rate of 0.25% has served to boost stock indices. Many U.S. stock markets are at or near record-highs or multi-year highs, causing some investors to divert funds away from other assets.
The Fed, meanwhile, will host a Federal Open Market Committee meeting tomorrow afternoon. This meeting could provide clues or outright answers about when interest rates might start to climb.

Silver’s $645-million one-day wipeout flashes warning

Originally posted on Financial Post:

Silver ain’t for the faint of heart.

The metal’s price swings have rattled investors so much that even a 10 percent rally last month wasn’t enough to boost purchases of exchange-traded funds backed by silver.

While the appeal of precious metals got a boost from stimulus measures in Europe and Asia aimed at bolstering stagnant economies, the rise in value also brought a surge in volatility. A week after nearing a bull market, prices on Jan. 29 fell the most since 2013, wiping $645 million in one day from the value of global funds linked to silver.

“We don’t ever invest in silver since it’s just so volatile,” James Shelton, who helps oversee $2.2 billion as chief investment officer of Kanaly Trust Co. in Houston, said in a telephone interview on Jan. 28. “If we feel we need to invest in precious metals, it will probably be gold.”

The volatility…

Balancing Your Investment Choices with Asset Allocation

A chocolate cake. Pasta. A pancake. They’re all very different, but they generally involve flour, eggs, and perhaps a liquid. Depending on how much of each ingredient you use, you can get very different outcomes. The same is true of your investments. Balancing a portfolio means combining various types of investments using a recipe that’s appropriate for you.

Getting an appropriate mix

The combination of investments you choose can be as important as your specific investments. The mix of various asset classes, such as stocks, bonds, and cash alternatives, accounts for most of the ups and downs of a portfolio’s returns.

Each type of investment has specific strengths and weaknesses that enable it to play a specific role in your overall investing strategy. Some investments may be chosen for their growth potential. Others may provide regular income…

Monitoring Your Portfolio

Originally posted on David Bayer:

You probably already know you need to monitor your investment portfolio and update it periodically. Even if you’ve chosen an asset allocation, market forces may quickly begin to tweak it. For example, if stock prices go up, you may eventually find yourself with a greater percentage of stocks in your portfolio than you want. If stock prices go down, you might worry that you won’t be able to reach your financial goals. The same is true for bonds and other investments.

Do you have a strategy for dealing with those changes? You’ll probably want to take a look at your individual investments, but you’ll also want to think about your asset allocation. Just like your initial investing strategy, your game plan for fine-tuning your portfolio periodically should reflect your investing personality.

The simplest choice is to set it and forget it–to make no changes and let whatever happens happen. If…
