Physical precious metals make a perfect all-climate hedge for your investment portfolio—but many investors shy away from buying gold and silver.
One of the reasons is the legendary volatility of the precious metals market. After all, you want to be sure to buy at the right time and at the best price.
A MetalStream account with the Hard Assets Alliance allows you to accumulate gold and silver bullion every month… much like a savings account.
This dollar-cost averaging over time makes the precious metals price on any given day less important—and lets you focus on your long-term investing goals.
When you apply MetalStream to your SmartMetals® account, you are buying fractions of a 1 oz gold bar, a 100 oz silver bar, a gold 1 kg bar, or a 1 oz gold Canadian maple leaf coin. As soon as your "savings" have reached the equivalent of a whole bar or coin, they will automatically be converted to your own, fully allocated whole bar or coin.
Your gold and silver bars are held for you in non-bank vaults in Salt Lake City or Singapore. Your metal will sit safely in storage on your behalf, and you may take delivery whenever you want. There is no fee for converting.
With MetalStream, you set the amount you wish to invest each month—minimum deposit is only $100 per month—and forget it. Whether markets fluctuate up or down becomes a minor consideration. The main thing is that you'll be steadily building your precious metals holdings while taking advantage of the price smoothing effect of dollar-cost averaging.
For your convenience, MetalStream uses the same ACH (automated clearinghouse) system millions of people use to automatically pay monthly mortgage or credit card bills. You can also enroll using checks or wire transfers. And it's 100% free to set up.
On a set day each month, you'll make an automatic transfer to your account, which we'll invest in silver or gold per your instructions. As soon as the metal in your account reaches a whole unit of your preferred precious metal (or metals)—say, an ounce of gold—simply log into your secure account and, with a couple of clicks, convert your holdings into whole bars.
Based on your instructions, the metal will be delivered to you or deposited into your account in one of our storage facilities. Of course, you can log into your account at any time to cancel MetalStream or change the type of precious metals you buy or the amount you invest each month.
MetalStream streamlines the process of buying precious metals over time—it's incredibly simple and impressively cost-effective. This account feature introduces a completely new dimension for individuals looking to incrementally build their precious metals holdings.
