What is a Silver IRA?

A Silver IRA or precious metals IRA is an Individual Retirement Account in which physical Silver or other approved precious metals are held in custody for the benefit of the IRA account owner. It functions the same as a regular IRA, only instead of holding paper assets, it holds physical bullion coins or bars. Putting all of your retirement funds into stocks and bonds is a very risky thing to do. In fact, it is something that every experienced investor will avoid doing because, after all, putting all your eggs in one basket is never wise! Building a nest egg for a comfortable retirement requires a diversification strategy, so why not start a silver IRA? Even if you are already contributing to a savings plan, such as a 401(k), you can also have a silver IRA. Otherwise known as a “self-directed IRA”, a silver IRA can be relied on as a shield from stock market threats. What’s more, you can diversify your portfolio with more than just shiny silver assets. Platinum, palladium and gold assets can be acquired to make a savings portfolio more balanced.

Why Invest In A Silver IRA?

Silver is Real Money
Silver may not be part of our currency, but it is still money. In fact, silver, along with gold, is the ultimate form of money, because it can’t be created out of thin air (and thus depreciated) like paper or digital forms. And by real money, we do mean physical silver—not ETFs or certificates or futures contracts. Those are paper investments, which don’t carry the same benefits you’ll find in this report.
Physical Silver is a Hard Asset
Of all the investments you own, how many can you hold in your hand? In a world of paper profits, digital trading, and currency creation, physical silver stands in contrast as one of few assets that you can carry in your pocket anywhere you go, even another country. And it can be as private and confidential as you want. Physical silver is also a tangible hedge against all forms of hacking and cybercrime. There’s no “erasing” a silver Eagle coin, for example, but that can certainly happen to a digital asset:
Silver is Cheap
What if I said you could buy a hard asset at roughly 1/65th the price of gold—and it would protect you just as well against inflation? That’s what you get with silver! It is much more affordable for the average investor, and yet as a precious metal will help maintain your standard of living as good as gold during periods of monetary dilution. If you can’t afford to buy a full ounce of gold, silver can be your ticket to holding some precious metals. This is also true for gift-giving. Don’t want to spend over a $1,000 on a present but would like to give a hard asset? Silver just made it more affordable.
Silver is More Practical For Everyday Small Purchases
Silver isn’t just cheaper to buy, but can be more practical when you need to sell, too. Maybe someday you don’t want to sell a full ounce of gold to meet a small financial need. Enter silver. Since it frequently comes in smaller denominations than gold, you can sell only what you want or need at the time.
Silver Outperforms Gold In Bull Markets
Silver is a very small market—so small, in fact, that a little cash moving into or out of the industry can impact the price to a much greater degree than other assets (including gold). This greater volatility means that in bear markets, silver falls more than gold. But in bull markets, silver will soar much further and faster than gold.
