Michael Maroney: Hi! My name is Michael Maroney from Monex Deposit Company, and today we're going to be talking about why it is so important to protect your wealth by owning gold and silver, and why so many of the world's top financial analysts are recommending that gold must be included in your portfolio. What we will be talking about today are the various ways that you can invest in precious metals. There are ETFs, there are precious metals mining stocks and there's physical ownership of gold and silver. We're also going to talk about where you can invest in gold and silver, finding a source that you can trust, where you can buy it, and where you shouldn't buy gold and silver. We will then discuss long-term investing versus short-term investing in the precious metals market, and how you can determine which way is the right way for you. We will also discuss today how much gold and silver is enough for you and to determine how much gold and silver you should invest in to feel comfortable with. Before we begin, let me tell you a little bit about myself and Monex. Monex is America's trusted name in precious metals. We've average better than 2 billion dollars worth of sales for the last six plus years, and we create a two-way market in precious metals 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year. I've been working at Monex for 20 plus years. I've been in the financial business for over 30 years. So let's get started helping you determine if buying gold and silver is right for you.
