Time to Invest in Gold?

With inflation potentially around the corner, should an investor start/increase their holdings in gold?  I have usually focused on equities and bonds but maybe time to diversify.  Thoughts?

You should always have a diversified portfolio across all assets.   Add crypto to the list.   Don't run around chasing returns by jumping from one asset class into another if you're not fully versed in the assets.

Gold holding and gold coins 🙂

Seems like a pain to hold physical gold.  True?

Agreed.  Well diversified with the exception of precious metals and crypto currency.  Not ready to go crypto but maybe metals.

You should incrementally add both.

 

Precious metals are a bigger problem to invest in because you get screwed on the bid/ask for the physical assets.

The premium dealers charge for phyz can be significant. Example, right now it is roughly $12 and change per oz. of Ag and $173 for Au, for American Eagles.

Unless you own physical gold then you don’t own gold. You own accounting tricks on a ledger.

Does Ag have a higher upside?


The silver market is a complete fraud. The overwhelming majority of it is “paper silver”, with only a small portion actually deliverable.

Precisely. If/When that manipulation is broken, silver should find it's true value. Considering it's worth in electronics alone, it should be priced in fiat much higher.
