Hedging with gold - Wyoming leads the way
The Permanent Wyoming Mineral Trust Fund (PWMTF) is the oldest and largest fund in the state of Wyoming and weighs around 8.1 billion US dollars. The fund is responsible for the costs of the state enterprise and is at the same time a foundation that is to preserve the assets for future generations. The reason why at least ten percent of the fund should consist of gold and silver is because of the hedging. The aim is to hedge against the risk of holding stocks, bonds and short-term debt securities.
Wyoming is economically heavily dependent on commodity prices. Future generations are to be protected from strong fluctuations. Because Wyoming had suffered severe investment losses in recent months in particular.
There are more and more states that abolish the taxation of precious metals and treat them more like money. Gold and silver, now regarded as legal tender, can thus trick the money monopoly of the Federal Reserve. Basically, the inhabitants of Wyoming can use it to secure the purchasing power of their money. And the renunciation of taxes on the sale of gold and silver reduces the investment costs in precious metals.
If you want to bet on gold with a lever, you can do so with the shares of gold companies that are well positioned. For example Maple Gold or TerraX Minerals.
