Heavy metal trading
Give your portfolio some real weight
The gold standard. Gold medal performance. Born with a silver spoon. On a silver platter. Precious metals have come to represent solidity, wealth and impeccable taste. As an investment product, they represent diversification and, for many investors, a strategy for hedging against stock market volatility, currency instability, and geo-political risk.
Now you can buy gold and silver in equities margin and registered accounts.
Where are my precious metals held? Can I keep them myself?
Gold and silver is stored at the Royal Canadian Mint, at IDS Canada or at Brinks Canada Limited. All storage options allow you to hold precious metals in an equities trading account (including registered accounts such as RRSPs or TFSAs). You can also have your gold and silver shipped to you to store yourself.
