So.. I'm thinkin about buying a few ounces of gold... as an investment. The trend overall has been goin up. But it's got it's ups and downs. This is not a big investment.. probably 3000-5000 Canadian dollars only. I don't expect major growth either. Anyone have any suggestions on whether I should buy or not? I'd like some links to learn more about these things too! So here's what I was planning on doing.. Buying gold and just leaving it there. The 24k type with the .9999 kind of gold. As of right now it's between 1100-1200 ish. Anyone think it'll go up? I rather not buy stocks/funds or any other form of investing for now. I'm interested in gold anything would be kindly appreciated!
