Investing in rare earth metals is a means of protecting your currency during times of financial uncertainty. There will always be recession from time to time and growth but the last few years have seen an unprecedented failure of institutions considered infallible. REE are an investment that can be strategically traded too. Like gold and silver, rare metals are tangible assets owned with full legal title by the purchaser and held in storage facilities. Rare earth trading is not subject to the usual financial market trends meaning value is not dependent of market whims.
These metals are the hidden ingredient in almost every manufactured component part or finished product across a broad spectrum of industries High technology products are manufactured at a rapid pace with new technology developed almost before the previous version has hit the shops.
These days, smart phones, tablets and other personal devices account for a huge market that demands rare earth metals. Other items taken for granted such as your car, flat screen TV, clothing, opticals, and medicine all contain rare earth metals. Around 80% of all manufactured products contain rare earth metals and the rate of development of new technologies mean the demand for these metals from industry exceeds actual industry production. This factor gives the metals their intrinsic value and the reason why the price of these metals should increase in value year after year.
Some typical rare earth trading metals include Copper, Indium, Gallium, Deselenide, Tantalum, Molybdenum, Chromium, Cobalt, Zirconium, Tungsten, Zirconium, Bismuth, Tellurium, and Hafinium. It is possible to put together a package of metals that are relevant to certain industry sectors meaning you can take advantage of the demand and supply from those specific industries. For example investing strategically in Copper, Indium, Gallium, and Diselenide would mean your portfolio would be of significance for the manufacture of PV thin-film solar cells. Another package containing Indium, Gallium, Hafnium, Tellurium, Spherical Tantalum Powder, and Bismuth would be a general purpose investment relevant to all key industrial areas.
These REE are increasing steadily in value because of the extreme supply and demand situation created by China’s monopoly of rare earth metals. The rapid growth of developing nations where rare metals are in massive demand, benefit the investor and trader in this market.
Additionally the developed industrial nations of Japan, USA, Germany, and Korea are also in ever constant need of these necessary rare metals for manufacture of high technology goods. It will take time for new mining operations to start up and contribute to the world supply of rare metals and it is unlikely these new ventures will be able to meet exponentially increased demand. This means your metal assets will increase in value and remain buoyant.
Investment and storage of your metals is arranged through reputable rare earth investment brokers who will manage your investment and storage and your trading. The pricing of the rare metals is determined by the fundamentals free market supply and demand and not subject to speculative trading making rare earth metals a solid investment in a growth area unaffected by daily financial markets.
