Online PR News – 03-May-2011 – – Scottsdale, AZ – PreciousMetalsIRA.org is pleased to announce the availability of its new Web site of the same name. PreciousMetalsIRA.org is a free, informational Web site devoted to educating retirement investors about the benefits of owning a Precious Metals IRA.
"Most retirement investors don't know that they can have physical assets in their IRA accounts," says Michael Gold of PreciousMetalsIRA.org. "IRS rules permit individuals to hold both tangible and intangible assets as retirement investments."
Michael Gold says that the key to being successful with a Gold IRA or a precious metals IRA is to follow the IRS rules carefully. "Only certain gold products, like gold bullion, and certain gold coins minted in the US and certain other countries qualify for inclusion in a gold IRA." Michael Gold says that IRS rules require a specific purity for inclusion in a precious metals IRA.
"A gold IRA investment can help offset the volatility of stock and bond market retirement investments," says Michael Gold. "The price of gold, silver and other precious metals is not heavily influenced by what happens to publicly traded companies. As a result, gold IRA investments are ordinarily quite stable, and tend to rise sharply when market volatility undermines the value of cash-based investments."
Unlike other IRA investments, a physical gold IRA allows the investor to take possession of gold assets. These assets are delivered to and stored by a custodian. The custodian manages all purchase and sale transactions, files the appropriate paperwork for the Internal Revenue Service and stores the gold, silver or precious metals IRA assets.
"The value of gold has risen more than 300% since 2007, when pronounced weakness in the major investment markets generated significant cash investment losses. Investors with a significant gold portfolio component have fared quite well," says Michael Gold. "For retirement investors who can't afford to lose additional retirement wealth, or who are looking to make up their losses in stock and bond investments, a precious metals IRA may be the ideal way to protect a vulnerable retirement portfolio.
