Precious Metals IRA Accounts Have Become The Choice For Security And Growth













(PRWEB) November 07, 2011

The investor who relied on the stock market for growth and security within their retirement accounts have not been happy since 2008. Many consider themselves lucky to have their account values right back where they started 3 years ago. On the contrary, those who included tangible precious metals such as gold, silver, platinum, and palladium within their 401K and IRA Plans enjoyed record growth.

According to Beverly Hills-based Precious Metals Brokerage Group (PMBG), the growth of Silver IRA, Gold IRA, and Precious Metals IRA plans are derived from a combination of inflationary domestic economic policies, increasing sovereign debt, failing confidence in fiat currencies, surging demand for precious metals in emerging BRIC nations, and scarcity in supply. Traditional securities like stocks, bonds, mutual funds, insurance products, and reits, have vastly underperformed commodity based asset classes like precious metals over the past 10 years. A PMBG executive explained, ” In the emerging global economy, buy and hold investing is like gambling. There are too many macro-economic forces at work creating massive volatility. The average retail investor has become a hostage of domestic and world events we see each day on the news. Additionally, US businesses have been inundated with regulations and restrictions that affect their bottom line. This is why precious metals are so essential to one’s portfolio, as they are immune to any/all of these negative and contractionary market forces. Gold, silver and platinum will always have a denominated physical value on the global market as they are universally accepted as forms of currency in all languages, cultures, countries. There is no abstract paper value regarding tangiable assets…and this feature makes them exceedingly attractive in the market today.”

Precious Metals Brokerage Group has become a leader the in the arena of precious metals IRA set-up, having served an array of clients on both retail and instutional sides of the market. A growing number of new investors seeking steady growth and protection from market volatility are taking advantage of the investment freedom a self-directed gold IRA, gold 401k, silver IRA, silver 401k, and precious metals IRA plans offer.

These plans allow for traditional stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate, and many other alternative investment products to be included within an IRA. Since a precious metal IRA plan is self-directed, it provides a maximum amount of flexibility, and give the consumer total control over their choice in retirement assets. The self directed precious metal IRA and 401K plans, also be an investment option which employers can offer to their workforce.

China-AsiaStocks.com Reports on India and China’s Economic Growth Leading to Opportunities for Water Technology and Renewable Energy










POINT ROBERTS, WA (PRWEB) January 7, 2006

http://www.China-AsiaStocks.com (CAS), an investor and industry news portal for the China-Asia sector, provides an exclusive overview entitled “Insights into China and India’s Water and Renewable Energy Market.” China and India’s aggressive economic growth is creating opportunities for foreign investors involved in the water and renewable energy sectors. Perspectives into the efforts of companies that are capitalizing on these markets are revealed by Shell Solar, General Electric, Siemens, solar photovolatics firm XsunX, and water technology company Hendrx Corp. Industry experts, Debra Lew, Senior Project Leader at National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Steve Hoffmann, President of WaterTech Capital, provide viewpoints on current and future opportunities in these developing markets.

Shell Media Relations Officer Alexandra Wright believes, “Solar opportunities are encouraging in both countries as we are looking to bring energy to individual households, and investigating the potential for a system that would power entire villages.”

Tom Djokovich, CEO of XsunX, Inc., stated, “For XsunX, China with about 20% of the worlds population and India with about 17%, represent one of the more compelling opportunities for sustained growth in the utilization of solar energy production.”

Hendrx Corp helps to address the needs in developing countries for increases in water supply and access to improved water quality. General Electric has joined the Ministry of Agriculture of China in a strategic partnership helping reduce the heavy water demands for high spray volumes and chemical runoff into soil and groundwater during the application of agricultural pesticides. Juergen Schubert, Managing Director of Siemens Ltd. India explained that pure and potable drinking water is a big problem in India, especially in rural industrial areas; issues that they hoped to effectively address.

Overview Excerpt: Insights into China and India’s Water and Renewable Energy Market

By Fei Wang http://www.China-AsiaStocks.com and http://www.IndiaStockMarket.com,

January 2006

There has been a dramatic increase in the demand for natural resources of all kinds, especially water and energy in both these countries, which brings enormous opportunities to foreign investors involved in the water and renewable energy sectors. However, due to the differences in the composition of natural resources, population structure, and political environment, opportunities and challenges vary between countries. How do these differences affect doing business in those two countries? Which country has bigger potential for growth in these two industries?

Steve Hoffmann, President of WaterTech Capital said: “Between India and China, China has, at least at this point of time, better natural water resources than India because water systems in China are fairly extensive. India on the other hand, does have a variety of surface water to draw upon, but a lot of their surface water availability comes in a form of monsoons, and many of them are lost during flooding. Therefore, relatively speaking, between China and India, at this point, India is more water stressed than China… “

InvestorIdeas.com Launches New Investor and Industry Portal CoalSectorStocks.com Following Coal Stocks and Growth in the Coal Industry










POINT ROBERTS, WA (PRWEB) February 25, 2006

http://www.CoalSectorStocks.com, a global investor and industry news portal for coal sector stocks, (a portal within the http://www.InvestorIdeas.com umbrella of investor portals) is pleased to offer interested investors a new resource tool for researching the sector. During the past twenty years, the coal market has developed rapidly and according to data from the US National Mining Association, coal production is anticipated to reach 1.16 billion tons, 3.2 percent higher than 2005. The demand and growth due to rising energy prices has created new interest in coal stocks and investing in the sector.    

China is a major factor in the global coal market with the majority of China’s energy production still generated from coal. China is currently the world’s leading coal producing country, producing 2.11 billion tons of coal in 2005. In addition to energy generation, certain types of coal are also essential to the production of steel – this application is also a significant factor in the expansion of China’s coal market. Puda Coal, Inc. (OYCBB: PUDC), a Chinese coking coal producer and Yanzhou Coal Mining Company Limited (NYSE:YZC), provide insight into the critical driving forces behind this particular sector (Also visit our China-Asia portal http://www.China-AsiaStocks.com for recent articles on the coal and steel industries).

As China continues to expand its infrastructure, demand for coal is on the rise globally and within China. Chinese coking coal producer Puda Coal is benefiting from domestic construction’s need for steel, which has increased 25% in the first seven months of 2005. “Driving the demand for coking coal is the mass construction of infrastructure projects that require the use of large amounts of steel, and coking coal is essential in making coke, which is largely used in the steel making process,” explains Puda Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Zhao Ming. “We are now very well positioned to capture the intense demand for the high grade coking coal helping fuel China’s industrial revolution.”

Yanzhou Coal Mining Company Limited also shows great confidence in the coal market. According to a company representative, ”China’s coal consumption will continue to grow. A major driving factor is China’s high economic growth, which drives the demand for coal. In 2006, it is expected that coal consumption in China will reach 2.17billion short tons, an increase of 0.13 billion short tons from 2005.”

Featured Company Puda Coal, Inc.: (CSS and CAS are compensated by Puda Coal as disclosed in disclaimer.)

Puda Coal, Inc. (OTCBB: PUDC) through its affiliates and controlled entities, supplies premium grade coking coal to the steel making industry for use in making coke. The Company currently produces 1.5 million metric tons of cleaned coking coal annually, and management believes it is one of the largest suppliers of top grade coking coal in the Shanxi province of China. Shanxi province provides 20-25% of China’s coal output and supplies nearly 50% of China’s coke. http://www.Puda-Coal.com
