Gold is insurance

This is a statement made by the former head of the U.S. Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan. Today this is more true than ever

Alan Greenspan made his statement about gold in the context of a reintroduction of the gold standard that was worth considering (the gold standard tied currency to the quantity of gold but was abolished in 1973). However, the underlying thoughts about the value of gold always apply. Gold has intrinsic value, thus differs from fiat currencies. Therefore, the precious metal is better suited for financial hedging than paper money. And a rise in inflation is usually associated with rising gold prices. 

Therefore, an investment in gold acts like an insurance policy, whereby it is not about short-term profit, but about long-term protection, Greenspan said. Today, money can be printed permanently, since currencies are unbacked, an equivalent value is not necessary and is no longer tied to a gold standard. Sometimes the gold price is also compared to a clinical thermometer. If it rises, i.e. the gold price, then it can be assumed that things are not going well with the financial system at the moment. 

Especially against negative real interest rates, gold serves as a hedge. And the state of the financial system can also be seen in the banks' rising penalty interest rates. The number of banks charging customers negative interest rates has increased tenfold in the last two years. Just in the current year, another 150 or so banks have been added to the list. But there is not always an exemption amount. So, it is better to invest part of your assets in gold or gold shares. For example, stocks such as OceanaGold or Kore Mining are recommended.  

OceanaGold - - produces gold successfully and has in its portfolio the Didipio mine in the Philippines, the Macraes and Waihi projects in New Zealand and the Haile gold mine in the USA. The importance of management can also be seen in the two new additions to the board of directors and the resulting increase in the share price. 
Kore Mining - - owns the Imperial and Long Valley projects in California. Both have positive economic valuations.
