An Introduction to Gold

History of Gold


Over the past 5,000 years, from the Egyptian Pharaohs and the merchants of 14th century Venice, to world governments in the space age, man has treasured Gold for its utility and value during times of both prosperity and disparity.

Through the rise and fall of great dynasties and civilizations, gold has maintained its purchasing power as a reliable store of value for millennia. Gold has been used as money since 560 B.C., when King Croesus of Lydia created a Gold coin in his own image. Ever since, it has continued to increase its long-term value, and remains the world’s most universally accepted form of money.

Today, the demand for gold continues to flourish globally.


Wealth Protection During Uncertain Times

The only constant in the world (and throughout history) is change. And when those changes bring uncertainty, people and investors move into Gold as it is a Safe-Heaven Asset. When large corporations go bankrupt, economies struggle, stock markets crash, pandemics arise, wars or civil unrest erupt, governments fail, and/or currencies collapse; you can count on Gold to preserve your wealth through it all. Deflation and inflation, depression and prosperity, boom and bust, war and peace, Gold has stood firm as a store of value and a trusted medium of exchange.

Paper assets can soar in perceived value. However, many times this is the perception management of inflation, in which the dollar is actually losing it's true value, which is why it takes more of dollars to purchase the same things. History proves that Fiat (paper) money is designed to go to zero through inflation, whereas Gold has intrinsic value in which it maintains forever. Paper money is a debt instrument. Gold is an asset of wealth in its own right. It does not depend upon any government’s, corporation’s, or individual’s promise to repay.

Why Own Gold?


Gold is first and foremost a form of wealth insurance – protection against the periodic setbacks suffered by traditional paper assets, including stocks, bonds and currencies, especially the US dollar.

In the last several years, we have seen Gold fulfill its role as wealth insurance in the face of a series of crises involving everything from terrorist attacks to bank failures. However, in the 1990's, Gold’s key role as wealth insurance was not so apparent to investors. The 90’s were characterized by rising stock markets, a strong dollar, low inflation, stable interest rates, and peace and prosperity. Most investors saw little need for Gold in their financial plans.

Just because a portfolio did fine without Gold during the 1990’s does not mean that the protection it provides was not needed. A weakening dollar, market crashes, investment bank collapses, and international turmoil are all cyclical events we continue to witness. Those that held Gold through these times have not only protected their wealth, but have seen the price of their Gold rise substantially.

The simple fact of our history has continued to indicate Gold must be a permanent fixture in every portfolio. And at ITM Trading, we also practice what we preach. Every Gold & Silver Analyst and Consultant including our President and C-Level Executives, all purchase Gold regularly within the framework of our proprietary strategy.
