We all know gold is an excellent way to protect your wealth in times of market uncertainty and political turmoil.
And gold has also become one of our favorite profit opportunities in 2018 thanks to the U.S. Federal Reserve's rock-bottom interest rate policies over the past decade and political tensions in Asia.
In fact, Money Morning Resource Specialist Peter Krauth believes gold prices could rise 300% by 2020.
Which is why we're going to show you the three best ways to buy physical gold online.
Unlike other investments, physical gold protects you from the silent killer of savings: inflation.
Inflation is the rate the price of general goods and services increases. As the inflation rate rises, the purchasing power of the U.S. dollar decreases. That means if your money is sitting idle in a checking account or in a safe, it's worth less and less over time.
But if you invest your wealth in physical gold, you can protect yourself from this savings killer.
Investing in physical gold is not just simple. It can also be a lot of fun!
