Steps to determine if gold is a good investment

Written By Steps To Faculty Published May 20th, 2010

With the price of gold climbing daily, it is very good to purchase gold and invest in it. So, how to determine if gold is worth purchasing?

Step 1 Determine the karats

The first step is to determine the gold by karat, as it is the actual value of gold. It makes it easier to separate each piece according to karat.

Step 2 Weigh and weigh

You should weigh each gram of gold to determine what the actual gram is. For this weighing digital scales are the best. You can convert the troy ounce price to gram.

Step 3 Contact local jewelers

If you have purchased gold and want to sell it when you are in need of money, you can contact local jewelers and other people who are interested in buying gold. For this a careful search is required to determine a company’s capacity, experience and excellent track record, which can be easily found by reading the reviews of satisfied customers at your local jewelers.

Step 4 Track the price of gold through the commodities market

As the gold prices are rising day by day, you will definitely get more price than the price you have actually purchased the gold. Therefore, you can expect a large margin profit. To do so, follow the FOREX or commodities markets regularly.

Step 5 Know the rules

During recessionary times, people flock to purchase gold since they consider the metal to be a solid investment. However, be careful, when the economy recovers, the value of gold can decrease just as easily. Remember to sell when gold is at its peak price and buy gold when it is not as expensive to truly profit from its investment.

Now that you know how to determine if gold is worth purchasing, go for the gold if the price is right.
