    Default Gold

    Anyone got any knowledge on whether its worth buying gold right now ? what with QE, potential -ve BOE rates, etc.. Im no expert but I was 'advised' by some (unqualified) person that it might be a clever move.... ie. move liquid assets to gold...

    Thanks

    Psst, MeIsMark, do the opposite of what he recommends. It's a proven strategy.

    Never try to time the market. The only reason to buy gold is as to minimise exposure for your whole portfolio. I use palladium, rather than gold for this purpose.

    I prefer minimised exposure to uranium, although I'd also consider cobalt thorium G. Zeity may weigh in with advice on that one.

    Alternatively exploding a small very dirty nuclear device in Fort Knox might help your assets appreciate.

    Here's an instructional video on How Not To Do It.
