Anyone here investing in precious metals such as gold? And if so, how are things going? I see that gold is around $1200 an ounce now and projected to be at $5000 within 5 years. USD has yearly inflation rate of around 3%, and bank accounts only yield around 2% yearly interest these days. meaning you actually will lose money by just letting it sit in a savings account. I am not trying to turn this into a investing thread, just a thread with people reviewing their methods of buying gold. Are you guys use services such as goldmoney who hold the actual gold for you? or are you buying actual gold bullion and bars?
