Commodities took it on the chin last month. Crude oil saw its steepest monthly loss since October 2008. Both copper and aluminum touched their lowest levels in six years. And on July 19, gold experienced a mini flash crash, sending the gold price down to five-year lows.

Yet compared to many other asset classes, gold has held up well, even after factoring in its price decline.

Current prices offer one of the best chances to buy gold we've seen in a decade. And with governments around the world printing money to support their flailing economies and stock market volatility surging, there's no shortage of reasons to own gold.

But not all gold is created equal - and the same applies to gold investments.

Here are the most crucial aspects of investing in the yellow metal and what to consider when buying gold...

China is notable for its long-time affinity toward gold. For the past several years, it has consistently been one of the top two gold consumers worldwide. (India holds the title for No. 1 gold consumer - for now.)

China is also the world's largest gold producer. So it stands to reason that China would want to exert more influence over the gold market - and gold prices.

Here's how the Asian nation aims to do just that...

How to Know When Gold's Bearish Slide Is Over

price of gold today

Gold's hard-and-fast tumble below $1,100 an ounce last week means some investors may be tuning out the yellow metal, or suffering from gold "burnout."

But ignoring it is a huge mistake. It has been and always will be one of the best stores of value, and it's a crucial hedge against economic upheaval. It's a must-have holding.

Last Monday's "bear raid" in Shanghai brought gold down to 13-year lows before settling at five-and-a-half year lows, and it's absolutely vital that we know when this downward pressure will stop so that we don't "call a bottom" too quickly.

You see, we can buy gold all the way down, but these charts will help us see when it will resume its upward march...
