Gold buying for DummiesSubmitted by BugMan on Thu, 10/16/2008 - 16:34
I've seen gold discussed a lot, and finally realize that it couldn't hurt to have some stashed, just in case things really do get ugly.
Hypothetically, suppose I have $100,000 in a bank account and want to get gold. How much of my $100K should be invested in gold (or silver?) Should I buy gold now, and if so, what kind and at what price? Where do you buy it? Do you keep it at home in a safe, or hidden elsewhere with a treasure map? How do you know you're getting what you paid for?
Advise me assuming I am completely ignorant about this, which is not hypothetical!
thanks in advance.
