As a gold and silver dealer, CMIGS’ mission is to guide and direct investors into the precious metal that best fits their investment goals, while offering the lowest prices available. This includes advising investors as to which precious metal holds, in CMIGS’ analysis, the greatest upside potential. We also consider it our responsibility to warn investors to avoid telemarketer-promoted gold and silver coins that are grossly overpriced.(See Myths, Misunderstandings, and Outright Lies and Old U.S. Gold Coins.)
CMIGS also has as its mission the education of precious metals investors as to the benefits–and dangers–of the precious metals markets. We do this through this website and our Monetary Digest newsletter, which covers economic, political, and social developments that affect precious metals prices. Monetary Digest is published exclusively for CMIGS clients.
We will recommend only those precious metals investments that we believe will provide you the biggest profits, not the ones that provide us the biggest profits. We also recognize that many people buy precious metals not for “profits” but for “insurance.” In such cases, we recommend the precious metal that we believe will meet those goals.
