For thousands of years, civilizations all over the world have bought, sold and bartered for gold. Today it’s considered the ultimate insurance policy… an asset that will retain value when everything else falls apart.

But if you’re holding gold merely as a crisis hedge, then it’s time you rethink that strategy…

Because in recent years, as yield has dried up elsewhere, gold and gold miners have emerged as a reliable source for big gains. The price of the yellow metal has doubled since the Great Recession, recently hitting an all-time high of more than $2,000 an ounce.

Yet that’s just a small sign of what’s to come as the Federal Reserve pushes our economy further into unchartered waters. For the first time ever, gold is moving in lockstep with stocks, driving higher as interest rates remain near zero for the foreseeable future.

And that’s precisely why we’ve made gold such a big part of our Modern Asset Portfolio.

Of course, there are many ways to capitalize on gold’s upward momentum. For tips to get started, check out the resources below. And be sure to join the free Manward Trading Academy for the latest updates on what’s happening with gold – and the latest opportunities.
