At the time of corona, which is
better? Investing in gold, currencies, or real estate
Consumer appetite increases on gold
globally after its price rises .. Warnings about the treasure of the dollar and
currencies .. Poor liquidity reduces demand for real estate
In the Corona era, when global
financial markets and economies are experiencing continuous instability, the
process of investing and maintaining funds or the method of using them has
become a concern for many consumers who have financial surpluses, so the
solution to investment and circulation, but how to direct these funds, is a
path of permanent controversy. Some resort to buying real estate or others
prefer gold and a few seek to hoard currencies.
Some holders of financial surpluses
want to put it in trading in stocks or any other type of investment activities,
but the most important advantages of investing in shares are that you own
shares in a company that becomes part of it, and over time when the company's
profits and growth increase in the long term, you will benefit as well From
that, not only with the rise in the price of your shares, but in many forms
such as dividends that the company provides to its shareholders, but in a time
of stock price turmoil, if you do not observe the movement of the ups and downs
of the shares, you will suffer great losses.
In addition to investing in stocks,
you can also invest in gold, which is one of the safe havens that can be
invested in. It is also possible to invest in the dollar, as it is the
strongest currency in the world, and it is also possible to invest in real estate.
Investing in gold:
Gold is one of the safe havens that
can be invested in. One of the benefits of investing money in gold is that it
works to keep money from inflation factors and high prices of other
commodities, such as oil, the dollar, and others, which are located in other
investment methods, and it is considered the most stable investment Even if
there is a decline in periods of the year in its price, it will continue to
increase in the long run. Therefore, investing in gold is the safe haven for
capital and wealthy owners to preserve their wealth and value of their money,
and protect them from inflation factors and other financial market fluctuations.
In order to trade in gold, the
investor must first purchase the gold and then hold it for a period of time and
then sell it and earn profits, and to ensure the success of investing your
money in gold you must buy gold and keep it for a period of two or three years
at the least to ensure the success of your investment, and the best is to save
alloys Gold. It is possible to rely on the method of speculation in gold, but
with a portion of the money allocated for investment.
You can invest in gold through gold
deposit certificates, which are certificates issued by certain bodies such as
banks, and in certain categories, and are an alternative to actual gold. You
can trade daily through these certificates buy or sell without the need to buy
or store gold, and you can recover its gold earnings, as Buying and selling is
done at a specific price.
The ways and types of trading in gold
vary between savings, investment and the stock market. There are many people
who want to buy gold by offering to save and save money, and it is considered a
very successful investment, but the investor must deal with gold in a correct
way in order not to be subjected to losses.
There are ways to buy gold, such as
buying and saving gold jewelery, either in a safe place, or placing it in bank
deposits and treasuries, or buying gold bars and saving them for saving in the
previous methods, and it is also possible to purchase gold deposit certificates
or buy paper gold from central banks, which is a more secure form of purchasing
Jewelery, or raw gold or alloys. The investor can subscribe to mutual funds
that trade in gold, or buy rare gold coins to hold and sell them at a higher
price where they have a great demand.
And every investor who wants to invest
in gold must be well aware that the price of selling gold differs from the
purchase price, and the reason is the costs of workmanship. Many people buy
gold jewelery for the purpose of keeping them to increase their price, but they
find that they lost their money despite the high price of gold, and the reason
is In that to the price of manufacturing, when you sell those jewelry you
deduct the value of jewelry and crafts from the price, which may exceed 10% of
the value of the price, so if you want to buy gold for the purpose of saving or
investing, you must buy gold bars, not gold jewelery.
One of the advantages of investing in
gold is that it is a way to preserve the value of savings despite the rise and
fall of gold prices from one moment to the next, because no matter how low or
falling the price of gold will go up, it needs time.

Real estate investment:
Many people recently try to invest
their money due to instability in the Egyptian market, but many do not have the
ability to venture into the amount and enter into any projects, whether small
or large, this is because of the fear of losing the amounts for any reason and
the different and guaranteed ways to invest without exposure to any risks.
The real estate field is a vivid and
clear example of investment, specifically in Egypt, which is going through a
period of real estate growth at the building level and at the level of buying
and selling, due to the emergence of relatively new areas that encourage real
estate investment more like the New Cairo and Katameya in all its regions, the
city of sunrise, and the future of City , New Heliopolis, 6th of October and
other new or existing new cities planned or planned in the future, as these new
cities create many opportunities for those who prefer to use their money in
real estate investment and whose prices increase well with time and in the
worst case if the price does not increase then it will not happen A loss, so
some believe that investing in real estate is the best option for most
Which is better: investing in
currencies, gold, or real estate?
Many investors ask: Which is better:
investing in gold, or currencies, specifically dollars, or real estate. To
answer this question, it must first be pointed out that gold is the best way to
save surplus funds from need, or that one saves for time and difficult days,
and even It is better than real estate, and the reason is that gold is light in
weight and easy to transfer. If you save your money in a land or apartment, you
will not be able to transfer it to another country, while gold is easy to
transport, for example.
Gold is considered a safe haven in the
sense that it is required in the event of global instability. Gold is a limited
material in the world, and with the increase in the number of people, the
demand for it increases and consequently the continuation of its high prices. Only
sell the entire apartment and not a room.
It is true that gold can be subject to
decline and rise in the stock market, and therefore you may gain or lose from
it, but if you have the expertise to know buying gold when it is falling by
following up on experts and economic news and choosing the place to buy well,
as well as knowing when to sell when there are signs of decline, for example in
such These days Corona's fears are an opportunity to buy gold for investors to
As for investment in currencies,
specifically the dollar, although it is the most powerful currency in the
world, it remains only paper, but given its strength that stems from being the
currency of the United States, the largest country in the world economically
and militarily, it is considered good for savings, but when compared to gold Or
real estate, the dollar should not be chosen, because it remains only a
currency that may be subject to major declines.
We can confirm that gold is the best and most secure way to save, at
least if not for investment and profit, and although many people do not have
experience to know when to buy and when to sell gold, it is sufficient for them
that gold is a safe haven, while currencies remain just papers , The world is
full of political and economic problems, and all of this will support gold in
