Throughout much of humankind’s history gold has etched itself as the standard for trade. Gold was a constant that was ‘implemented’ by many countries and sovereigns with different intrinsic values decided by their self-proclaimed economic advisory commissioners. This unequal situation was a window of opportunity to the travelling merchant who was able to obtain more merchandise for lesser gold and unloaded the merchandise for more gold in other regions. This was the dawn of speculation in olden times. Gold standards in the latter part of the 19th century were ‘a bit more uniform’ and currently prices of gold have been ‘controlled’ by the London Gold Fixing. When it comes to selling gold or buying gold, the first thing that potential investors should consider is the timing. If the reasons that drove people to buy the gold in the first place has been resolved and then the need to convert the precious metal back into currency to sustain their lifestyle is a viable option and in fact it would be the right thing to do. People were buying gold for one purpose only, to preserve their wealth. Because if at all the computers did fail on the eve of the year 2000 then paper money would have become worthless. When money becomes worthless the world goes back to ‘barter trade mode’. Wonder how many ducks People need in exchange for a buffalo or elephant? With gold and Silver and gold in Peoples savings People would be able to command the commerce, but how much or how far they command it is totally another paradigm. If you think you are going to walk into the gold trade with 1000 dollars and make a fortune, think again, everything good starts small, and because gold is a good thing by any means, starting small would be the best approach!
An individual will be able to buy the same amount of things maybe more 30 years ago with the same amount of gold or silver, but People can’t buy the same amount of things with the same amount of money 30 years ago. Silver and gold are good investment options due to the fact that silver and gold is ‘accepted’ anywhere and everywhere and all you need is to find a company that deals with precious metal to start off your ‘gold venture’.

There are a million reasons why people would decide on actions based on short term gains or vice versa, but from what I have come to learn, when it involves gold, somehow people become better at what they do and I always think that it is because, gold bring out the best in everybody, after all gold has been part of humanity for more than 5000 years, thus it probably understand us, better than we understand it!
