Liked the article and gave it a clap. I am the one leaning strongly towards the gold and silver, not doubting wisdom of all mankind across thousands of years and all continents. Should you invest in gold is revisited in article found HERE.

Good summary of pros and cons on gold investment. No one can really tell whether an investment is good or bad until they have sold or earned enough return to cover the initial capital. Agree that well-deversified portfolio is the way to go. The only key is the percentage.
