What Are Your Best Silver And Gold Options Right Now?

If you’re not paying attention to the price of silver and gold, it’s time to tune in. Market volatility, rising inflation, and a weak U.S. dollar are combining to create the perfect storm for precious metal commodities. What the gold and silver markets are seeing may be the beginning of another bull run, the likes of which have seen silver prices triple and gold reach record heights. All signs point toward risks on the market and good news for precious metals. The window of opportunity to strike gold with precious metal investments can feel long when prices stagnate for years, but when gold and silver prices start to move, you can quickly find yourself looking in from the outside. If you’re not already holding gold or silver bullion, it’s time to get moving. But first you need to know what you’re buying.

The Basics of Disability Insurance

Many people assume that disability insurance only makes sense if you have a high-risk job that involves strenuous activity, dangerous sites, or heavy machinery. However, statistics suggest otherwise. According to the Council for Disability Awareness, one in four of today’s 20-year-olds will become disabled before they retire, and accidents are not the leading cause of disability. Instead, most long-term absences are caused by things that can happen to anyone, from a common back injury to cancer. Disability insurance provides many benefits for disabled workers and their families. Women can use disability insurance to cover lost wages when they take maternity leave. Short-term disability insurance can help protect workers during a serious illness or after a surgery that requires a lengthy recovery period, and long-term disability insurance can cover those with chronic mental conditions. Although the former isn’t meant to last longer than two years, the latter can cover a policyholder from one year up to age 67.

Keep in mind that most insurance policies stop covering policyholders once ...

What Made the Litecoin Price Rise?

However, despite strong negative pressure, the popular altcoin’s market cap has once again reached the USD 12 billion threshold. After a very steep fall recorded on February 20th, when Litecoin shed about USD 78, falling from USD 262.60 to USD 184.68 in only 3 days, the digital currency, frequently described as the silver to Bitcoin’s gold, is heading back up and is currently trading at around USD 205,45.   Improved Market Sentiment and FOMO   The recent rise in Litecoin’s price is said to be due to improved market sentiment about cryptocurrencies in general, with many investors viewing the weaker market as an opportunity to get involved. The FOMO – or Fear of Missing Out – factor is likely at play here, since many new and prospective crypto traders are known to regret not buying into the top digital currencies some time ago, especially considering the impressive gains seen last year. These traders have been monitoring the digital currency markets, waiting for any signs of an incipient rally. As soon as a slight ...
