An in-depth guide to making gold a serious part of your portfolio

Gold, the long forgotten store of value that was once the center of the global financial system, suddenly matters a great deal again. It has become a leading asset by virtue of its strong performance, and its booming demand has made it the only financial asset that remains in an uninterrupted bull market. And yet gold remains one of the least-owned financial assets in investment portfolios today.

Hard Money helps investors move beyond the simple, yet widely accepted notion that gold makes sense in today's financial environment, and explores ways to magnify potential investment returns driven by precious metals. This reliable resource examines the investment vehicles (bullion, stocks, derivatives, and even rare coins) and strategies (aggressive, conservative, passive, and variations) aimed at beating the price of gold as it rises, and ways to protect a portfolio should the metal decline.Identifies five key drivers that should continue to push gold higher in the years aheadExplores the ins and outs of investing in gold and making this precious metal a part of your portfolioExamines the pros and cons of multiple ways to buy gold via coins, ETFs, mining and royalty stocks, and other investment vehiclesAuthor Shayne McGuire is a highly-regarded expert on gold

Written in a straightforward and accessible style, Hard Money offers key strategies to enhancing returns with new methods for investing in gold.
