I have an open question for anyone. If I wanted to buy gold what is the best avenue to do it for a small time investor like myself?
I have a Vanguard account and I really like Vanguard. But I look through there and I can't find any fund that really satisfies owning gold. They have a precious metals and mining fund but that is not really what I'm looking for.
The only thing I really see is GLD SPDR gold shares etf. That seems to be what I'm looking for, but just wondering if there is anything else out there.
I actually don't think there is anything great about owning gold. Its just metal and doesn't produce anything. But I have come to like it as the closest thing to a universal currency. I'm looking at just owning it as a very small part of an overall portfolio.
