  • Introduction to the Physical Gold Market

The physical gold market provides investors several product options. The choice of tangible gold product is largely a matter of the investors’ goals and resources.

Gold is primarily purchased as a store of wealth, as a “hedge” against inflation, and as insurance against fluctuations and depreciation of paper money. Though less common, gold is also purchased for its bartering potential. If necessary, fractional gold products (those that contain less than one troy ounce of gold) could be used as a medium of exchange. However, because silver is available in smaller denominations and therefore more convenient, it is the preferred barter metal. Even a one-tenth ounce gold coin would cost approximately $214.00 to $225.00 (as of June 7, 2023). Varying “premiums” (which include dealer premiums and commissions, all shipping costs and insurance) and Independent Retirement Account (IRA) regulations are also important to consider when deciding between the different products. Currently, the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) allows specific physical gold products to be included in a self-directed IRA if certain rules are followed.

I’ve been investing with Tom Cloud since 1999. Tom’s service & advice has been a tremendous blessing to me and my family. The assests that I’ve purchased have grown more than 300% during a time the broader stock market is still down from its highs in 2000 & 2008. I count Tom amongst the finest business men I’ve ever worked with, he’s demonstrated strong integrity & wisdom over the 13 years we’ve worked together.

My husband & I were referred to Tom by a Ministry that we fully support & trust. Six years ago, our stock portfolio was not appreciating at all. Since that time we have averaged over 20% per year on his recommendations. The things we like the best are his integrity, fast responses, candid assessments & especially how quick out products arrive.

I have valued Tom’s advice for over 27 years. As an MD, I have to work with people that i can trust as so many people try to reach me. He has continually provided honest staright forward information & very fair prices. He has helped me in other areas besides his expertise that has also been invaluable. Even when metals were flat he would never try to get me buy more and would give me honest assessment of the market. Thanks to Tom Cloud, my retirement account has more than tripled. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

My working relationship with Tom Cloud & Cloud Resources Group, Inc. has spanned a 20 year period. The service & business relationship has always been one upmost priority. Tom is always very well-informed & knowledgeable about the current market situation and his customer service is exceptional. Anytime I have ever needed a re-sale of assets, Tom has always been quick and efficient in completing the process at a very honest & fair price. I trust Tom Cloud without hesitation because our relationship over the past 20 years has proven one of confidentiality, efficiency and honest business.
