First of all, what the heck is a gold IRA? A Gold IRA is a self-directed individual retirement account that allows you to safely own precious metals. Today's infographic, brought to you by American Bullion, does a fantastic job of laying out the perks of owning a physical gold IRA by first addressing the most obvious question: Why gold? First off, gold is a financial asset that does not depend on credit to function. Secondly, gold creates protection on your portfolio, and is fully insured at IRS- approved depositories. And finally, the reason why I'm personally sold on opening a physical gold IRA: gold will NEVER go out of business or rely on decisions of a company's officers.
In strenuous times like this, gold seems like a smart investment to make for your future. Check out today's infographic to learn more about the benefits of opening up a gold IRA account. It could mean the difference between a luxurious future, or a difficult one! [via]
