Investors are Moving from Paper to Physical Gold Bullion

The following article written by Jeff Clark of Casey Research highlights a growing trend of investors moving away from paper and into physical gold bullion.

John Paulsen, a billionaire hedge fund manager, was one of the first high profile investors to announce this move, and it continues to accelerate. The chart in Jeff Clark’s article clearly shows investors preference of physical gold bullion, in the form of gold coins and bars, over ETF shares.

Considering that there’s not enough physical gold bullion to account for all of the outstanding gold ETFs in existence, and a trend toward individuals feeling more secure with investments that they can see and touch, we don’t anticipate this trend waning anytime soon.
