How to Buy Gold - Online Gold Bullion Investing

Commodities / Gold & Silver Sep 21, 2007 - 08:08 PM GMT

Commodities

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week US interest rates were cut by 0.5% as a direct consequence of the credit crunch. This sparked a sell off in the US dollar to new lows not only against other currencies but also sent commodity prices soaring, including a soaring Gold price hitting a 27 year high.

Russian and Chinese governments together with private investors are all buying gold bullion in strength as the credit crunch shows the inherent weakness in the world governments monetary policies, which may be about to ignite hyper-inflation. Owning physical gold is fast returning as the favoured way to secure wealth against the rising tide of fiscal irresponsibility as governments continue to devalue their currencies by printing money, as evident of soaring money supplies in the range of 12% to 20% per annum.


BullionVault.com is a revolutionary online market for private investors to buy gold, and later sell, directly within international high-security vaults. Customers trade gold with each other, or BullionVault.com, at the best price in a multi-currency real-time market. The service launched in May 2005 and is proving immensely popular. All bullion is held in the Brinks vault of choice in London, Zurich or New York. All accounts are openly audited daily.

BullionVault is currently being promoted with 1 gram of FREE gold bullion, stored in their Swiss vault, which is valued at $24 FREE

Buying gold - The easy and safe way for personal investors to Buy, Sell and hold gold at market pricesBullionVault is owned by Galmarley Limited , which is company number 4943684 registered in Great Britain.

The services are delivered by their own computer system hosted in separate locations in Britain and USA, which we connect to and manage from their London offices. Galmarley is involved exclusively in gold and gold related information technology.

Feedback from Galmarley's many tens of thousands of visitors inspired the development of the BullionVault service. Interesting features include:

* Daily audit proves gold ownership down to the gram using anonymous client aliases.
* Robot traders provide automated 24/7 dealing.
* Extensive use of open source components in the system development.

Here we explain the basics of the BullionVault user interface.  If you want to understand how the business gives you better gold prices you should also check out their FAQs and Brochure, both available from their home page.

There are navigation links to the most commonly visited site areas.  Press the menu bar buttons to go to other BullionVault screens. 

Easy order entry

Before looking at the different order boards it's worth getting the hang of the order details panel.  You'll see how easy it is. 

You'll need to be logged in to see the order details panel on the right side of your screen.

The Order Details

Clicks in many different places on screens cause order details to be automatically filled out with sensible guesses at what you want to do.  This makes it very easy to fill out your orders, and often all you have to do is look carefully at the order we generate from your click, and confirm.

Confirming an order

Your order details are offered for your confirmation.  Only when you confirm does your order get passed to the market for validation, matching and/or posting on the order board.

Were you successful ?

Don't rush off just yet!  When you confirm an order one of three things could happen.

  1. Your order fails validation.
  2. Your order executes in its entirety
  3. Some or all of your order can't be executed, and what's left is posted as a limit on our order board [shown here].

You need to read the response to see which one of these occurred. If you are not sure what has happened go and check your open orders on the orders menu.

The Order Wizard

The wizard offers a different route to filling out your order. It lets you fix one variable in an order, and works out suggestions for the others.

For example, you could set the wizard to 'fix my order value' setting it at $1,000.  The wizard checks the market and sees how much you should bid for, and what price you should offer. Press the 'Suggest' button and the optimal results are displayed - if possible. If you like the suggestion you press 'Proceed' and the wizard drops you into the buy/sell panel, ready to trade and confirm.

The Order Board Screens

There are three main order board screens all accessed from the  MARKETS  menu, and they do the same job in different ways.  You can choose your favourite, or use each of them in different circumstances.  Each board summarises the orders which other users have entered, but which have not yet executed, and which are therefore being advertised.

When you're logged in they all have the order details panel on the right hand side.  Broadly what happens is when you click something on the order board (left side of screen) the system has a guess at what you mean to do and fills out the order details (right side).  You get a one or two click order entry, which allows you to grab an opportunity as soon as it's displayed, usually without having to carefully type lots of stuff in.

When you submit an order they explain to you what your order details will achieve.  You have to confirm this for us to proceed and process your order.

BullionVault.com is currently giving a FREE gram of Swiss vaulted gold bullion to everyone who registers (worth $24)- to try the service and learn how to trade. Sign-up is easy, fast and credits you immediately.

Hold Gold in Your Hands!

If your going to buy gold, make sure you can hold it in your hands. The government will take over all gold vaults if there was a disaster

Will they Sieze Gold?

Its likely some governments will sieze goods.

Its unlikely the UK government will be able to sieze my gold in Zurich.

There are reasons, well explained, for not holding gold personaly.

Gold What to do?

I am bit confused what to do as gold bulions are available when prices are really high and when market corrects the price then it becomes difficult to find any physical gold in the market. What is the best thing to do?
