“If you don’t hold it, you don’t own it”

"If you don’t hold it, you don’t own it” (or “If you can’t hold it, you don’t own it") is a catchphrase of the blogger Ponce, who used the tag on Gold is Money Forum and other blogs since the mid-2000s. Many others, skeptical of gold and silver ETFs such as GLD and SLV, have abandoned paper gold and use Ponce’s slogan.

If you are looking to buy ETFs GLD and SLV just remember they are taxed at 28%. There is some question if GLD and SLV actually have the commodities behind these EFTs. My motto is if you don’t hold it, you don’t own it. Buy and keep the real stuff and don’t keep it in a safety deposit box at the bank. Paper gold and/or silver can be as worthless as the US dollar when the US eonomony collapses. I don’t recommend pool accounts either for the same reason.

Maybe we should change the forum motto from

“If you don’t hold it, you don’t own it”
to
“If you don’t hold it, you don’t own it, and the guy who des is probably secretly working with law enforcement nazis against his own privacy policy.”

The way I was told, if you don’t hold it you don’t own it. Buying gold and letting some one else keep it for you is never a good idea. If there ever is a SHTF you will loose your gold.

I’ve been considering putting my money into gold and silver for a year or so now. Where do I start?
A great place to learn about gold & silver investing is: http://www.goldismoney.info (http://www.goldismoney.info)
Do I buy stuff that they actually ship to you?
I’ve heard it said, “If you don’t hold it, you don’t own it!”

The words of a long-time GIM poster who left the forum last year are still frequently quoted and echo loudly in the ears of many metals holders:
“If you don’t hold it you don’t own it.”

Wowzers what an unfortunate fiasco. I know many on the boards subscribe to the “if you don’t hold it you don’t own it” mantra, but this is one of the best examples I’ve seen demonstrating this simple truth.

If You Don’t Hold It, You Don’t Own It
Now where have I heard that before ?
Oh yeah; I heard it over 5 years ago after I had gotten to know Ponce. You see, Ponce and I talk on the phone almost daily

And last but not least, “If you don’t hold it, you don’t own it”. Lately more and more financial writers have been advising to sell paper investments and buy the physical gold and silver. With the recent revelations of the silver and gold ETF funds such as SLV and GLD not having the physical gold and silver they are supposed to, Ponce’s quote has become front and center to preservation of one’s wealth. And a corollary to that quote in view of potential future govt confiscation, “If you can’t hide it, you won’t own it”.
