How to Invest in Gold: Tips from an Expert on the Yellow Metal

With gold prices near two-year lows through much of 2013, a bargain-hunting Money Morning TV viewer asked us about how to invest in gold.

Rick Rule, the founder and chairman of Sprott Global Resources Investments, provided the answers.

Rule says he'd put a portion of the money into gold bullion and a portion into gold stocks.

But he warns those unfamiliar with the sector should stick to what they know: If you're bullish on gold, buy gold, but realize gold stocks don't necessarily mirror the price of the yellow metal.

Check out exactly how Rick Rule would invest $100,000 today in the yellow metal in the video below.

    Dear Mr. Marchant,

    Why investors are not giving a chance to innovative environmentally friendly gold technologies? The largest global uproar is about over 40+ million children and adults who are using mercury bare-handed and endless regulated refining sites which use vast amounts of cyanide to extract gold from the ores, yet none of the investors we have approached is giving us a chance?
    Can Money Morning help us to raise awareness about technologies that CAN produce green gold without compromising corporate profits?

    Thank you,
    Buba Roth, CEO

    I know that gold hasn't been one of the most stable investments lately, but it still has apperciated about 500% since 2001.

      That’s a massive increase and if you are in it for the long term investment and security then you can’t fault it.

    Totally agree, Buba! Exploiting people is going out of style fast!

    I absolutely agree with the article in that those who aren't well informed and experienced should stick to the basics when buying gold. There are a lot of options out there and it can be tempting to branch out, especially when gold prices are fairly low. There is, however, more to buying gold than many realize and people should know what they're doing.
