What will gold do tomorrow

The price of gold can change dramatically in a single day. Knowing what to look for will give clues on when gold will go up or down in price.

Usually, any hint of a major geopolitical conflict will send gold surging upward. The Middle East is especially an area to watch. For example, if Iran threatens to bomb Israel or sink a ship in the Strait of Hormuz, the price of gold will most likely go up.

People look to gold as a safe haven when geopolitical situations look to go hot as in a shooting war or anything that may hinder the shipment of goods.

Labor disputes in countries that mine gold can also send the price of gold up. If miners go on strike at a major South African gold mine, this will reduce the supply of gold and send the price upward. After a labor dispute is settled, the price may fall. Mines that forward sell gold can depress the price of gold. The news that a major gold vein is playing out at a big gold mine can send the price of gold higher.

Anytime the movement of oil is disrupted, the price of gold can surge. If the price of oil moves sharply higher, the price of gold can also go up.

By following geopolitical events, the action of mining companies and the price of oil, a person can get a good idea if gold will go up or down in price.

Remember! When you sell gold in Atlanta to A1 Gold Buyers you know that you get the most for your gold!

What Olympic “Gold” Medals are made of?

Olympic gold medals have not been made from pure gold since 1912 games. The 2012 games awarded 302 gold medals, making the cost to make that many medals from solid gold much too high to be practical. Each host city has an organizing committee that determines the specific composition for each games. However, the International Olympic Committee has certain requirements for Olympic medals. All medals must measure 60mm across and 3mm thick. Gold medals must have six grams of gold plating. The majority, 92.5 percent, is made from silver. The rest of the medal is copper.

Most winners hold on to their medals. However, a few are willing to sell them. The value of the metal within each gold medal is about $600. However, to collectors these medals can be worth much more. Each Olympic medal has a story behind how it was won. The ones from more famous athletes or memorable story lines during the Olympics are worth more.

Olympic medals can show up on eBay, and many are sold through special dealers of Olympic memorabilia. The average selling price for an Olympic gold medal is around $10,000. More famous gold medals fetch a higher price. One expert claims Michael Phelp’s record breaking 19th medal could be worth up to $50,000 at auction. A medal from the 1980 United States Hockey team was recently auctioned for $310,700. It all depends on the event and the history surrounding the victory.

Investing in Gold Stocks vs. Direct Ownership

When you are interested in investing in gold, you have the option of going with gold stocks or owning gold directly. While gold stocks do have some advantages over other stocks, direct gold ownership is the best option.

With direct gold ownership, you get a tangible investment that you can actually hold in your hands. This way, if you ever need access to the investment, you know exactly where it is. With gold stocks, your shares are held electronically in your broker’s computer system. If the system collapsed, your shares would not be worth anything and you could not trade them with anyone.

Another reason that direct gold ownership is better is because it allows you to speculate directly on the price of gold. With gold stocks, they are loosely based on the price of gold, but the management of the company also comes into play. If the company makes bad investment decisions or doesn’t manage its resources effectively, it could devastate the stock price of the company. If you want to own something that is going to continue to go up in value over time, gold is what you need.

Why Deflation is the Biggest Catalyst for Gold and Silver

As the Federal Reserve wrestles with whether to keep interest rates at historic lows, deflation is a constant on the minds of investors and consumers. However, investors in precious metals such as gold and silver should know that deflation is perhaps the best thing that could happen for their markets.

Deflation as a whole is always bad for business. If businesses are not able to sell their goods at rates at which they make a profit, they will not be able to show a profit to their investors in their quarterly and yearly reports. This will scare investors out of companies and lower the indexes. Media outlets will undoubtedly generalize the effect, as they always do, as another recession for the market or a season of bad business.

As the market indexes go down, the investment in precious metals such as gold and silver invariably goes up. Although the effects of deflation mirror that of a recession, it does not necessarily mean that businesses are going bankrupt. However, these facts are not really relevant when you are talking about the emotional plays by investors in the short-term marketplace.

Especially in the wake of the Great Recession, investors will take any lessening of profit margin as the effect of a blowback. They will undoubtedly overreact and move their money from speculative companies into investments that have historically been good hedges for bear markets. These investments include gold and silver and will continue to push the prices of those precious metals up and up until some sort of sanity is restored to the marketplace.

This sanity will probably not come soon if deflation rears its ugly head. With the continued resonance of the Eastern economic block edging itself into the markets of the United States and Europe, uncertainty in the marketplace is a virtual certainty until the debt, banks and housing crises of the Western economic bloc are handled in a sufficient manner. Until then, anything that affects the short term profitability of Western businesses, including deflation, will coincide with a rise in the prices of the precious metals market, especially gold and silver.

What Is Gold Used For?

Gold is one of the most valuable precious metals in the world, and it has been considered valuable in every civilization in the history of the world. Besides just being a precious metal, it is also used in many different capacities. Here are a few different uses of gold.

Store of Value
Gold is used as a store of value. It is often crafted into coins or bars and sold to speculators. The value of gold fluctuates frequently, but it always retains some value since it is a physical object and a precious metal. Some people store large amounts of gold bullion as an investment strategy.

Gold is also one of the most commonly used precious metals in the jewelry industry. People make rings, earrings, necklaces, bracelets and other jewelry out of this metal.

Gold is also frequently used in the electronics industry. Gold is considered to be one of the best and most efficient conductors in the world. Because of this, it is often used in the wiring of electrical components. It is not the cheapest conductor out there, so it’s not always used, but it is utilized in many different electrical devices.

Gold has been used in the dental industry for hundreds of years. It’s not as widely used today due to other solutions being available, but some people do still have gold fillings in their teeth.

Medical Usage
In some cases, gold can be used in the medical industry as a treatment option. Some medical conditions and diseases can be treated with injections of solutions that contain gold in them.

In the computer industry, many computer companies use gold as a component. Gold can transmit data well, so it is often used in computer chips and other similar components on a regular basis.

Who knows? Maybe the gold you sell today will be used in your next computer!

What main factors should determine where you sell your gold, silver and other precious metals?

Yesterday I heard first hand another fascinating story of fraud and deceit in this already tarnished industry.

At approximately 6-30 pm yesterday we received a phone call from a very irate and understandably upset “customer”. When asked what the problem was, he advised us that the check we had issued him was not being honored and was “bad”. Well what relief was felt by us. Cold? Callous? Sick? No, none of the above. We just knew immediately it was not our check. How did we know without checking you may ask? Simple. WE PAY CASH!!!. We do not pay by check and that is another important factor separating us from the rest.

Do not be mistaken, we felt terrible for the victim and assisted him in locating the offending gold dealer. (which happened to be closed for business)

In addition we directed him to the local police, whom we work very closely with in order to file charges.

On further examination we discovered that the customer (victim) actually had the gold dealer come to his house to effect the transaction.
Now I am not saying anything disparaging about this customer, except to say that he was ignorant and too trusting.

The lessons I want to share are now simple to understand:

1. If the gold dealer pays by check there is ALWAYS the chance that it will NOT be honored. Sometimes at no fault of the dealer, but perhaps a bank error.
2. If you are inviting a “gold dealer” to your home, you are now showing him where you live and showing them your gold, silver and jewelry etc. In today’s times that could be a very costly mistake; both financially and Heaven-forbid physically. Additionally, it is absolutely illegal in most places to buy precious metals without a permit for that specific address. Yes! That would make many gold parties and the like absolutely illegal.


How to avoid these simple mistakes and still gain.

Come into any one of A1 Gold Buyers’ 18 locations where you will be advised and assisted by a professionally trained buyer in an upmarket, comfortable and friendly environment. Our promise of honesty and transparency will be immediately apparent.

Do not be a victim and do not take chances. Come to the established, tried and trusted gold dealer in your neighborhood.
