Recent reports suggest precious metals are plunging, but some investors are holding on.

Nick Barisheff, president of Bullion Management Group, says your clients should cash in on gold since it will continue to rise.

He adds the precious metal has enjoyed a 12-year bull run; according to his findings, gold’s price return has gone up 390% since December 1999, while the S&P/TSX Composite Index has only risen by 46% over the same period.

He also suggests investors should look at uncompromised bullion in his new book, entitled $10,000 Gold: Why gold’s inevitable rise is the investor’s safe haven.
