As someone who keeps gold and regularly checks the price, I thought I’d cover the gold price movement in the last decade. Here’s what happened to gold prices between 2008 until mid-2018. Think of this article as an explanation of the 10-year historical gold price chart below.
For the benefit of this article, I’ll use price of gold per gram, not per kilo. Most people track the price that way anyway (unless they’re from the US, in which case they use ounces).
If you’re keen to collect something, why not collect gold coins and gold bars? They tend to appreciate in value in the long run. If you get bored of your collection or need money, you can resell it and get back what you paid (and perhaps more than that). You can’t say the same for most other collections.
In this collaboration post with buysilvermalaysia.com (which actually sells a lot of gold too despite the name), we would like to share some interesting gold coin and gold bar designs for your visual pleasure. Your inner pirate will appreciate this.
I never really understood Malaysian stocks. Like, I know how to get them and all, but I don’t get them. I don’t know how to answer, ‘Which Malaysian stocks should I buy?’
(For the record, this is how you get Malaysian stocks: open a CDS account, add some money, buy the stocks you want at the price you want and keep it until you want to sell it)
This went on for a while until someone from Asukabu commented on one of my posts and mentioned the app. You can learn about Malaysian stocks, he said. I’m like, okay, sure I like learning, I’ll try it out.
Using Asukabu to survey Malaysian stocks
There was this lightbulb moment as I was using the Asukabu app. It kinda clicked after that. Ohhh, that’s how you select a company, from a million* companies out there.
