For over 20 years I’ve been deeply immersed in the world of financial investing, commodity trading and precious metals.

My journey into the realm of precious metals, and particularly gold, began when I first started trading commodities. Oddly enough, I discovered an uncanny ability to decipher gold price movements and analyze gold charts much more easily than with other commodities.

But trading isn’t just about charts; it’s about understanding and being up to date with the underlying forces that drive prices. Intrigued by this, I delved deep into the gold market, and even to this day, it continues to fascinate me.

As I look back, I can appreciate the significance of having planned ahead for retirement. It’s an invaluable lesson that I’m eager to share and help others embrace.

The wealth of gold IRA, precious metals investing and retirement planning information that I have provided here on this site has come from a combination of personal experience and countless hours of personal research. I have evaluated many different Gold IRA Companies over a period spanning more than 10 years, and in fact my first ever evaluation was way back in 2011.

Writing has always been a passion of mine, allowing me to share my findings and experiences with others.

I firmly believe that if something is worth doing, it’s worth doing well. That’s why I take immense pride in providing each and every one of my visitors with meticulously researched, authentic, and substantiated information.

My purpose here is to share with you some of the experience, knowledge and insights I’ve accumulated over many years, and my ultimate goal is to help you make informed retirement planning decisions, particularly when it comes to precious metals.

Wishing you tremendous success in all your retirement and investment endeavours.
