Stocks took a dive in May, the lowest since May 2012

Wow, it was a very rough ride for stocks in May.

Even more concerning is… this was the worst May since 2012.

Retirement investors worldwide watched their retirement funds caught in a tailspin as the Dow Jones, S&P 500 and Nasdaq all suffered massive losses simultaneously.

At the end of the month, these markets were down 6% or more as hammer blows of trade tensions, political tensions and economic uncertainty.

Early June results have been a bit better, giving investors a welcome reprieve.

But how long will it last? Can you afford to wait and find out?

Expert research shows that adding a portion of gold to your portfolio will increase its risk-adjusted returns over the long term.

Your family’s legacy is important. Your financial future depends on your retirement plan’s ability to weather the inevitable storms of the fickle markets.

These market crashes can strike hard when you least expect. But one thing is for sure, they lie directly ahead.

Many retirement investors use gold to hedge against the usual stock market problems: volatility, unpredictability and uncertainty. That’s one way to keep one step ahead of the inevitable market swings.

Consider the many features and benefits of gold:

  • Safe haven asset
  • Diversification against market swings
  • Privacy and security
  • Ease of purchase and sale
  • Worldwide-recognized asset


Central banks have long used physical gold as a core pillar in their national reserves and a sign of economic solidity.

What role could gold play in your retirement and your peace of mind?

Research shows that holding some gold and silver bullion in your retirement portfolio can lower volatility and increase risk adjusted returns.

Gold may not be everyone, but it could be for you. We recommend you get informed and prepared. For all seasons and all kinds of markets.
