In our previous blog post we discussed whether or not it was time to consider adding silver to your self directed IRA. In this post we will review the best ways to add silver to your self directed IRA.
The Oversold Correction Will Eventually End
As time and history have shown us, the oversold situation that we see for silver will correct itself. It is not a matter of if this will occur, but when will this occur. The current situation is poised to reverse and maybe significantly, therefore you should start positioning your self directed IRA to reap the rewards of the future price movement of silver.
There Will Be Price Volatility
Precious metals investing is not for the faint of heart. There will be starts and stops, and pull backs in silver. This means that you should have your silver allocations properly set so as to not be losing sleep over the price fluctuations.
The Global Economic Situation Will Drive Silver
Approximately 57% of silver is used in industrial applications and 30% for jewelry, with investment demand making up the balance. Clearly, global economies are cooling; if growth remains stunted or slows further, silver demand could drop and take prices with it. That being said, keep in mind that all governments and central banks continue to engage in currency debasement via printing. World governments have learned nothing. They will all continue to run major deficits. We believe that these government policies will outweigh any slow down in consumption.
Metals Strategies For Your Self Directed IRA
- Accumulate silver now – Given the premise that we will be seeing some future price action, you should start acquiring silver now while its cheap. There may be pull backs and this presents an opportunity to acquire silver in tranches. For that fact, it makes sense to also acquire gold.
- Buy More Gold Than Silver – Generally speaking, you should hold more gold than silver in a 70/30 ratio.
- Hold More Physical Metal Than ETFs – Its always best to have the physical metal when possible.
As always, one size does not fit everyone. Be sure to consult with your financial advisor before acting on any of our recommendations.
