Most individuals currently saving for retirement may qualify for a Precious Metal IRA.
- Since 1986, the IRS has allowed individuals to hold precious metals within their IRA.
Physical metal, over time, has always offered a hedge against stock market volatility.
- In 1995, Dr. Raymond Lombra, presented a 40-page report to Congress on the use of gold and rare coins in IRAs. Dr. Lombra stated," A detailed analysis of hypothetical portfolios reveals that over the 1974-1993 period a portfolio consisting of 5% coins, 5% gold and the rest stocks, Treasury bonds, and Treasury bills would have increased portfolio returns at the same time decreased overall portfolio risk."
