Even gold can be a gamble...

Sure, buy and hold has worked out pretty well for those who were able to do so. But what if a medical emergency creeps up on you and you're forced to sell some gold RIGHT NOW and end up taking a loss on it?

So yes, a fine investment indeed but also - at some possibly miniscule level - still a gamble.
