Gold—One of the Gifts of the Magi; It protected the Holy Family then—and other families since.
At this Christmas season the thoughts of Christians turn to the birth of Christ in Bethlehem long ago. They recall the visit of the three wise men, not on the night of the Christ Child's birth as it is depicted nowadays, but perhaps as many as three years later. The Magi came bearing the gifts of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. Each gift was rich in symbolic and literal ways, but let's focus on the Gold for a moment. It had special significance then and now. Gold, besides being offered up to kings was a symbol of divinity, an expression of worship and because of its endurance, Gold also became associated with immortality. The Magi's gift of gold symbolized their acknowledgement of Jesus as a King whose Kingdom could not be destroyed by earthly powers. Gold, then and now, had universally recognized value. No doubt it would have enabled St. Joseph to buy food, accommodation and arrange travel for the Holy Family in order to weather a "lethally" dangerous storm in their lives. Historically, Gold, has always helped others weather storms and it may help you weather a dangerous time too, albeit and hopefully, not as serious a situation that confronted Joseph, Mary and baby Jesus.
That gift of Gold funded the Holy Family's flight/escape to Egypt, avoiding, as history records, the "Massacre of the Innocents" ordered by a jealous King Herod, who ordered his henchmen to kill all the little boys in and around Bethlehem that were 3 years of age and younger. (Herod didn't like the idea of having a competing Jewish King).
Even for those of different religions, Gold has an historical resonance. The Talmud, for instance, teaches that one should invest one third of one’s fortune in "land", a third in "business interests" and a third in "Gold".
Two millennia later, we still see Gold as a hedge against the dangers of unpredictable and increasingly chaotic financial markets. It is generally accepted in the financial community, that a balanced portfolio contains several key elements—cash, bonds, deep value stocks, gold and property. Looking forward to the next few years, we believe Gold will be one the most desired of asset classes; it's an international currency, the core foreign reserves of major governments and central banks around the world (central banks' appetite for Gold is at all time highs). It has no third party liability, it cannot be counterfeited, it offers insurance in an increasingly unstable financial world and that in the whole course of human history, Gold has not lost its enduring value. There's something supernatural about the allure and wealth protection offered by Gold.
There are many different ways to participate in precious metals-- stocks in gold mining and various precious metals funds are but two. We still believe that the safe storage possession of physical bullion is optimum; that means gold bullion stored in a safe place, that's allocated and insured. A. D. Vacca/Kingsview Financial can provide clients with access to bullion, safely secured, vaulted and stored with a major Canadian Chartered Bank. While a portfolio that covers all of the main asset classes is always important, now, more than ever, is the time to consider a higher weighting in bullion, despite what mainstream financial naysayers/pundits advocate. The recent pullback in Gold pricing offers an excellent entry point opportunity.
If you have any questions about protecting your retirement or investment portfolio from market uncertainty, call our office for a no-obligation consultation with myself or one of our planners.
Throughout this holiday season and the coming year, we here at A.D. Vacca Financial join with you in giving thanks for the most precious of gifts, far more precious than gold or silver,- which is the love of God and of His only Son Jesus Christ. Remember that Christmas is really a celebration of His gift...for this babe did not stay in the manger, but He grew up and conquered sin and death that we might have peace with God...that we might have peaceful hearts in a world full of turmoil. At this time of reflection on the blessings of family and our good fortune to live in a land with so much opportunity, we wish you the Peace of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Merry Christmas and a Happy New year to all.
