The most popular way to buy gold has a big problem: it doesn’t store it.
That’s the conclusion of a new study by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, which found that a large portion of the world’s gold held by households and businesses is not gold at all.
The central bank’s research found that the average American household and businesses store just $0.01 of their gold in a vault.
The researchers estimate that half of Americans are in the “notional” or “notable” storage category.
While that’s not all that much gold in America, the Fed report shows how that fraction has grown significantly over the past century.
As we’ve previously written, there are several reasons why this could be.
One of the biggest reasons is the rise of gold bars.
Gold is a pretty good store of value, and people have been using it as a way to hedge their bets on riskier investments.
The Fed report says that the gold standard has been “severely damaged” by the rise in the price of gold, with banks and other institutions making “many loans” to store it instead of investing it.
The Fed report found that there are still about $20 trillion in gold reserves that could be safely stored.
The majority of that is held in U.S. banks, with about $12 trillion held in gold certificates.
But that is not enough to store a large amount of gold for any given time.
The Federal Reserve researchers found that an average American family would need about $1,400 worth of gold to store $6,200 worth of silver, while a large corporation might need about 10 times that amount to store the same amount of silver.
The Federal Reserve report also says that even a small portion of these savings would be enough to pay for the cost of keeping a gold-backed investment.
But the Fed says that if you store the equivalent amount of cash in gold, it would take about 3.3 months for that cash to accumulate in the vault, and only about 3 days for it to be worth the same as the cash you put into the vault.
This suggests that people don’t necessarily think of gold as a store of gold and silver, but instead as a kind of insurance against loss in the case of an economic downturn.
The researchers also found that about half of the households and corporations that store the gold and/or silver do so only for short periods of time.
That means the majority of gold held is held for about six months, and the majority is held a few years.
The report doesn’t say how much time a family would have to save to get the same cost of storing gold and buying silver as a bank would have, but it suggests that an individual could save $5,000 a year on average for a full five-year period by keeping $5.4 million in gold and $1.2 million in silver.
