Investment Options

When it comes to how you should invest your money there are a few basic and simple rules you should follow. You want to have some cash around, of course, just in case of disaster. You also want to have a few month's worth of the mortgage tucked away in a deposit account or CDs again, just in case of a job or medical emergency. After that you want to have some long term bonds and a healthy slice of equities.

It's all called diversification and it's a very important part of making sure that you have a spread of assets.

Now, within that spread of assets you should also have some much more speculative investments. These could be in options on stocks, in alternative investments or perhaps in commodities. One of the most interesting commodity investments at present is in silver. More is used each year than is mined, there isn't enough recycling going on and the above ground stocks are shrinking all of the time.

One of the best ways of gaining exposure to this opportunity is by the purchase of physical ingots or coins of silver and one excellent way to do this is through hte Monex Deposit Company. Click through the link to see what they can offer.
