  4. 4. 1. INTRODUCTION « The destiny of mankind is based on its currency. » Jacques Rueff Three years of fund management with specialization in the gold and silver markets since August 2008, led me to develop Goldbroker.com. Goldbroker.com is the result of my experience as an investor in the gold market since 2008, a solution in response to the problem: how to invest properly in the gold and silver market. Many solutions exist to invest in gold and silver, but you will not find a safer alternative to hold physical gold and silver in your own name, stored outside the banking system and of your country of residence, than Goldbroker.com. Since 2008, the economic and financial crisis resulted in inflationary monetary policies that destroy the purchasing power of all currencies. Investing in physical gold and silver can help you protect your wealth and your purchasing power, but you need to know how to invest successfully in this market, and avoid the pitfalls like the investments in «paper» gold, certificates and ETFs. There are now very few investments left providing protection and a potential capital gain: the stock exchanges have collapsed several times, real estate in many countries has fallen sharply or is still overvalued, while at the same time gold has an average annual performance of around 20% for 10 years, making gold one of the top 3 investment of the last decade. Goldbroker.com has an experienced team (lawyer, accountant, entrepreneur and traders) and strong financial backing. Egon Von Greyerz, one of the most important Gold and Silver fund manager in Switzerland has recently joined the Board of directors of Goldbroker. com to provide his expertise. Our main partner for the management of secure storage is reliable and recognized by industry professionals in Switzerland : Rhenus Logistics.

  8. 8. 3. BUY PHYSICAL GOLD A. Why invest in physical gold ? - Gold is the only form of money that has not been destroyed through 5000 years of history. - Gold is becoming money again : For 2000 years, money was made of gold and silver coins. Since 1971 and the end of the Gold Exchange Standard by President Nixon, we have been living a currency experience of paper money. As all previous experiences in the past, this experience will fail. - Gold is undervalued : Adjusted from the real rate of inflation (not the one published in the media), gold should be much higher, some say around 10 000 dollars, to take into account the trillions of dollars that have been printed since 2008. The Dow/Gold ratio is a good indicator of the fact that gold in undervalued. - The end of the dollar as the world reserve currency is unavoidable. In view of the inflationist monetary policies of all the governments, the purchasing power of the dollar is destroyed. Countries with big dollar reserves know that, and are literally fleeing the dollar and investing in tangible assets to protect themselves. - Other international currencies (euro, yen, swiss franc) are no alternatives. All these currencies are based on “paper money” and follow the same long-term fate as the US dollar, which is going back to its intrinsic value of zero. - The true impact of the derivatives has not yet been experienced. Warren Buffet called the derivatives “weapons of mass destruction” and, in the coming years, this market will implode, trigerring a domino effect that in turn will destroy our monetary system based on fiat money. - Investment demand from investors is just starting to rise. Few people own gold today so it’s impossible to speak of a gold “bubble” when this asset is under-owned. - Investors are realizing that Gold ETFs are not the safe haven they’re supposed to be. Gold ETFs are not backed by 100% physical gold. Owning Gold ETF shares doesn’t necessarily mean investors own physical gold. ONLY invest in physical gold. - The production of gold by mining companies can’t rise, because the credit crunch made structural investments nearly impossible and gold is becoming harder to mint. So  physical gold offer is stable and thus is not pushing the price down. - Central banks are not selling gold any more. To the contrary, a lot of Eastern and Middle East central banks are actively buying gold in order to limit their exposure to the devalutation of their dollars and euros reserves. - The gold market is very small. All the gold ever produced during History represents a 20 square mile block. - Gold has proven during centuries its capacity to hold value and to protect against inflation. > Click here to see the gold spot price Invest in physical gold by opening an investor account here Goldbroker page 6 - BUY PHYSICAL GOLD

  12. 12. 3. BUY PHYSICAL SILVE A. Why invest in physical silver ? - Silver is even more undervalued than gold. Throughout History one ounce of gold used to buy 15 ounces of silver. Today you can buy around 52 ounces of silver with one ounce of gold, meaning that silver is extremely undervalued based on historical valuation against gold. See the Gold/Silver ratio - Silver is driven by monetary and industrial demand : Silver is used in many products as well as in the industry for a lot of applications. When silver is used it’s merely destroyed. Silver is the second commodity in the world in terms of uses and applications. Industrial demand is not going to fade when silver price skyrocks because silver is used in very small quantities in all these different products (computers, cameras and so on). Even If the price of silver goes very high, industrial demand will still be there. - As gold is becoming more and more expensive to buy, people are turning to silver to protect themselves against inflation. In Asia for instance, people only have the option to buy silver in view of their salaries. This huge demand for Asia didn’t exist during the last bull market in the late 70’s. - On the silver paper market, huge short positions will have to be covered one way or another by the bullion banks. This short covering will send the price of silver to very high levels. - Besides, it’s said that for each once of physical silver in existence, bullion banks have Goldbroker page 10 - BUY PHYSICAL SILVER sold 100 times more silver in the form of paper certificates. Now when all the silver investors will try to convert their silver certificates into physical silver, ETFs will go bust and physical silver will skyrock. This huge offer of “paper” silver has driven the silver price down for many years by creating a fake offer in the market. People are now waking up to this fact and are investing more an more in physical silver. Only own PHYSICAL silver. > Click here to see the silver price Invest in physical silver by opening an investor account here B.
