The Best Investment You Can Make Right Now

Investing in stocks is never a sure thing, but these days, things seem more uncertain than ever.

For the past year, economists have been forecasting a recession, only for the economy to demonstrate an astonishing amount of resilience. 

Employment numbers are the best they’ve been in half a century. But it’s hard to shake the looming sense of dread — the feeling that an unknown shoe is yet to drop.

Jerome Powell’s interest rate policy is a big part of the problem. 

He is without a doubt the worst Fed chair of my lifetime. I’d take Bernanke or Yellen over him any day. 

He whiffed badly on inflation — denying it even existed for more than a year before finally coming around. 

Now he’s over-correcting, jacking rates higher even though prices have cooled considerably. 

China is another wild card. Its economy is flagging badly, but Beijing isn’t really doing anything about it. I’m not even sure that they can.

Meanwhile, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has destabilized energy and grain prices.

And to top it all off, we’re now heading into an election year unlike any we’ve ever seen before. 

Joe Biden has a hard-boiled egg for a brain. 

And Donald Trump is going to be spending more time in a courtroom than on the campaign trail over the next six months. 

“Not guilty, Your Honor” is the worst campaign slogan I ever heard in my life.

So while I’m cautiously optimistic (even bullish) about stocks, I think it might be a good idea to hedge our bets a little bit. 

And the very best way to do that is with gold.

Gold has been a sneaky-good investment for a while now. It’s up 7% in just the past six months and 14.5% over the past year.

And regardless of what happens in the short term, gold’s price will continue to rise over the long haul due to one simple fact…

We’re running out.

I know that sounds kind of crazy, but it’s true.

After all, we’ve been mining gold for centuries — millennia, even. 

And especially these past few decades, with more advanced exploration and extraction technologies, we’ve accelerated the depletion of a finite resource.

Whereas in the 1970s every ounce of gold that was dug out of the ground was replaced by 2.6 ounces of newly discovered underground gold...

By 2022, the equivalent figure was only HALF an ounce.

Production has peaked and has actually been in decline since 2019.

Indeed, all the low-hanging fruit — the massive jumbo deposits — has already been discovered and exploited.

As a result, we’ve had to rely on low-grade deposits to make up the difference.

The average reported ore grade is now less than 1.5 grams per ton — a 100-year low.

This is basic supply-and-demand economics. 

And it doesn’t even take into account other economic and political influences, like the weakening dollar.

Of course, there are a lot of ways to invest in gold — coins, bullion, large-cap miners, junior explorers…

But if you want to know the very best, it’s right here.

This latest report from resource expert Luke Burgess gives you all the details on a gold play that’s poised to deliver massive gains.

But you’ll have to act fast, because it’s set to go vertical as soon as September 30.

Trust me, you don’t want to miss out.

Fight on,
