we use the word "investment" too loosely sometimes. purchasing is more accurate, because there is no return or yield on gold...it is what it is. You are locking in the purchasing power of your paper money at whatever rate that you bought in.
you could conceivably use your PM holdings by leveraging them in the new paradigm which may then give a yield of some sort. I have ideas myself of how to do this, but I have more research to do.
at some point we will want to get out of gold or silver, but when? the best advice i have heard so far is: when fear is at its greatest.
which makes sense because it is afterall a flight to safety, and we are only at the beginning of a big wave of fear.
