Top Tips for Buying Gold in 2016

Buying gold is a great way to use part of your portfolio. But it's not always as clear what to do as when you buy stocks.

Here are some tips for gold buying this year so you make the most out of your money...

Gold Coins Are a Good Investment – Know This Before Buying

The Gold Price Is Manipulated by These Two "Types" of Money

The gold price continues to indicate a new emerging bull market.

And there are several factors that have driven gold prices 2.5% higher in recent weeks.

But there are two "types" of money that will dictate where gold is headed in 2016...

Silver Prices Will Keep Rising in 2016 Thanks to One Figure

Typically what is good news for gold prices is also good news for silver prices. And that's what we saw last week when the Fed did nothing and the metals got some love.

The silver price also broke above a key level.

What's more important to note about silver though is this one number...

The "BANG Stocks" Are the Next Group of Profit-Doublers

The market-leading FANG stocks – Facebook, Amazon.com, Netflix, and the former Google, now Alphabet – haven't had a great 2016, with returns in the neighborhood of -15% to just under 5% for the year.

Don't get me wrong – they're still good "holds" for investors wise enough to take the long view and accumulate big, steady gains over a period of years.

Those anemic gains aren't surprising, given that we're all but "officially" in the depths of a bear market.

But… like the old adage goes, "there's always a bull market somewhere," and I believe that's especially true of the basket of stocks I'm about to show you. As uncertainty and volatility rule the markets, these shares have already delivered bona fide breakout gains that most investors would kill for right now.

But you haven't missed out; there's a new technology just hitting its stride right now that could multiply these players' profits exponentially.

And the best part is they're all still available at real bargain prices.

They won't stay that way, though...

This Metals Play Will Reward Investors for a Long View

Most of the time, platinum costs about 30% more than gold. That's been the average for the past 40 years.

But every once in a while, that relationship gets distorted. When that happens, platinum surges powerfully, producing huge returns for investors who get in at the right time and stay the course through any volatility that comes our way over the next few months.

But… that distortion is unfolding now, so it's time to make a move to play platinum.

We won't get another chance like this for years...

Commodities

A Spin-Off and a Second Catalyst Will Make These Shares Soar

It looks like a terrible time to invest anywhere near the materials space. Sell-offs have tanked the price of gold and silver, along with industrial metals like copper and nickel, and even commodities like cotton.

But there's one materials play that will allow you to buck that trend. It's a "pure play" on metals that is all but guaranteed to return double digits thanks to an upcoming spin-off and a second major catalyst.

Here's how to invest in this materials firm before its shares soar...

Gold Prices Today Near 3-Week High on Chinese Yuan Fears

Gold prices today (Thursday) are down slightly after climbing to a three-week high yesterday amid yuan fears, a softer dollar, and a global equity rout.

Here's what you need to know about gold prices today, and why they're headed higher...

Why Silver Prices Are Falling This Week

Bearish sentiment is at all-time, which is why silver prices are falling this week.

Global stimulus has pumped up markets, strengthened the dollar, and threatens to plunge silver to uncomfortably low levels.

But as the world economy prepares for more money printing, here's why silver has more promise than the world economy...
