On Thursday, July 6, in the late afternoon (as reckoned in Arizona), the price of silver crashed. The move was very brief, but very intense. The price hit a low under $14.40 before recovering to around $15.80 which is about 20 cents lower than where it started.
Silver prices ‘flash crash’ before rebound
– Silver hammered 7% lower in less than minute in Asian trading
– Silver fell from $16 to $14.82, before recovering to $15.89
– Silver plunge blamed on another ‘trading error’
– Gold similar ‘flash crash’ last week and similar recovery
UBS Group’s (NYSE:UBS) wealth management unit says gold will probably trade between $1,200 and $1,300 an ounce in the short-term, and is recommending that investors buy the yellow metal for insurance.
I have dealt with Chad and his team at the Victoria Bullion Exchange for several years now and have enjoyed their superior customer service, their extremely competitive pricing and simple, secure storage of your physical bullion. The education and personal service the VBE offers is second to none and I even have my Dad owning physical silver now!
Thank you VBE.
Over the past 8 months I have made several transactions with the Victoria Bullion Exchange.
On each occasion I have found the people very professional and each
transaction carried out quickly, efficiently and with out any issues. I highly recommend
them for buying or selling your bullion.
My interaction with the Bullion Exchange has been very positive. The preferable purchase and redemption rates are attractive. I was a first time bullion purchaser this year and the staff at Bullion Exchange made the process informative and comfortable. The extra effort made by staff to meet my product delivery needs was outstanding. I was completely satisfied.
I would like to express my gratitude, and give
my full support to the Victoria Bullion
Exchange. This business is one that I can gladly say, has the best service I
have experienced in recent memory. Denice Bigelow has worked hard in making
herself available during long hours, throughout every week of the year. It was
very easy to reach her personally over
the phone, and in fact I was even placing orders with her over the phone while
she was on business in Hawaii. She always made time to answer my questions
thoroughly, and I never felt rushed.
Invoices were sent out within minutes of our calls, and notifications were sent
immediately when material was received. Chad
Pretsell also contacted me directly to let me know when the order was deposited
with their first rate storage service service. Considering that Victoria
Bullion Exchange is also dealing Internationally, I would say that this is one
top notch company, and I have literally put my trust in them. In this type of
business, trust is number one. Thank you Victoria Bullion Exchange.
Quicker, friendlier, and easier than expected. A solid alternative to Kitco!
My husband and I live overseas. After doing our due diligence, we have worked with the Bullion Exchange for 6 years now and have recommended friends and family. We have bought from the Bullion Exchange, we store with them and recently we have sold back to them. We were hoping the sale back to them would be as smooth as the purchase and it was...painless. We would definitely recommend the Bullion Exchange.
I live over 150 km from the Bullion Exchange. I am elderly and could not make the trip to Victoria so they came to me. The service is impeccable and the Bullion Exchange is now my preferred bullion dealer. Thank you!
Dealing with an online bullion dealer was a bit scary until I spoke with Denice at the Bullion Exchange. I spoke with her at great length and she was happy to do so until I was satisfied in who they were and what they offered. She gave me a business referral as well as a customer referral and I have now made my 3rd purchase with them. Many thanks.
Great company to deal with. I purchased some silver from them and they are storing for me. I couldn’t be happier with the way I was treated and they got me the information I was looking for and in a timely manner. More importantly they delivered on the product I was purchasing. Very professional company.
I want to thank you for the time spent with me educating and counseling me about the Gold & Silver markets. Obviously, I am happy with the results of my investments with you and plan to continue to add to my precious metals inventory. The purchases were easy & hassle free. I look forward towards future purchases and business.
The Victoria Bullion Exchange is pleased to announce we can now purchase Precious Metals through our RRSP’s and LIRA’s. Questrade, the first brokerage in Canada is the vehicle which offers contributors to directly place gold and silver bullion in their RRSP's
As of 2005, the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) now allows Canadian RRSP’s and other retirement vehicles to invest in pure investment-grade precious metals coins. Other major Canadian banks only offer gold and silver certificates, which provide no real protection in case of a major recession or dollar collapse.
Questrade offers the ability to hold physical gold and silver as part of an RRSP, TFSA and other retirement vehicles. Questrade seems to be the best option for 2 reasons:
1. They have the best pricing
2. They allow you to purchase your metals from The Royal Canadian Mint
Whether it’s planning for the future or otherwise, there are many factors to consider when decidinghow much gold to include in your retirement portfolio. It depends on your age,your tolerance for risk, what other investments you own, and your confidence in the economy and the methods you choose to gain exposure to the precious metal.
Why precious metals?
Because they tend to retain their value more than other assets, precious metals have traditionally acted as a buffer against instability. Market upheavals usually have a lower impact on precious metals like gold and silver than on other assets. Financial experts have always recommended placing about 10% of your funds in precious metals as a prudent strategy.
You can place gold and silver in any of 15 different account types that include registered retirement savings plans (RRSP's), tax free savings accounts (TFSA's),individual or family registered education savings plans (RESP's), life income funds (LIFs) and registered retirement income funds (RRIF's). Placing gold and silver in your RRSP also allows you to trade the metals on the spot market and take immediate advantage of favorable market movements.
RSP-eligible gold and silver products
The following .9999 fine products from The Royal Canadian Mint can be placed in your RRSP:
Our preferred relationships ensure that clients receive only premium RRSP approved products,directly from The Royal Canadian Mint. No secondary market product is ever delivered.
