How to assess the potential impact of precious metals on your portfolio The best way to assess a precious metals portfolio is to do a thorough analysis.
You may not be able to quantify all of the potential risk factors, but you can assess your overall risk profile and identify what you can mitigate.
A good investment strategy to use in evaluating your precious metal portfolio is a long-term index.
This means that the price of your precious materials is measured in years, not months.
A long-duration index is often a better way to look for potential gains than a simple monthly or yearly price.
The risk profile of a precious-metal portfolio will be different than that of a diversified, short-term fund.
The portfolio in a long term index will be more volatile, but its risk profile will be similar to that of diversified funds.
Long-term portfolios are better for investing in emerging markets, emerging technologies, and commodities.
You might want to consider a long, diversified fund for investment in emerging and emerging technologies.
