Risking All of Your Hard-Earned Retirement Money In The Stock Market?

You’ve worked hard to secure your retirement income for the future, but there are uncertain economic conditions, both in the United States and world-wide. There is volatility in the stock market and a weakening U.S. Dollar.

Are these factors putting your hard-earned dollars at risk?
SMG Bullion Can Help You Diversify Your Holdings And Add A Defensive Asset To Your Portfolio.

Gold in an IRA is the ultimate asset. It is the purest form of money, and the oldest, most durable wealth-preserving asset on the planet. Governments can’t devalue it. It has no debts, no board of directors, no politicians or central bankers that can mess with its value. That’s why gold has survived every economy history has ever witnessed, and preserved investors’ purchasing power over a span of some 5000 years and will continue to for your gold IRA.

IRA Basics

A self-directed Individual Retirement Account is an Individual Retirement Account (IRA), provided by some financial institutions in the United States, which allows alternative investments for retirement savings. Some examples of these alternative investments are: real estate, private mortgages, private company stock, oil and gas limited partnerships, precious metals, horses, and intellectual property.

Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regulations require that a qualified trustee, or custodian, hold IRA assets on behalf of the IRA owner. The trustee/custodian provides custody of the assets, processes all transactions, maintains other records pertaining to them, files required IRS reports, issues client statements, helps clients understand the rules and regulations pertaining to certain prohibited transactions, and performs other administrative duties on behalf of the self-directed IRA owner.

It is simple and easy to rollover all or any portion of your stock based IRA into a Precious Metal IRA. Precious Metals are widely regarded as a “defensive asset,” that can provide a level of safety for your principal during volatile times. That is because Precious Metal price movements are often contrary to the stock market’s movements. Precious Metals may also provide a level of diversification to your stocks, bonds and mutual funds and diversification is widely considered a prudent course of action. You may purchase gold, silver, platinum or palladium and hold your investments in an Individual Retirement Account. Many experts recommend that at least 5 – 10% of your retirement dollars be invested in precious metals.

Taking possession of your IRA gold is qualified as a distribution. Under that circumstance, the IRS requires that a possible penalty and the appropriate taxes be paid. To avoid the penalty and taxes you want to have your IRA gold stored at a depository through the gold IRA custodian we provide.

Investors that want to take advantage of a gold IRA use an already designated specialized precious metals depository for the storage of gold. The depository offers a secure safekeeping service and provides easy access for the physical delivery of your gold.
