Owning $1 of gold for every $10 you have in bonds is the best way to hedge the principal value of your bond portfolio against today’s volatile global markets. There’s a lot of debate about which forms of gold are best for investors. That comes down to personal preference. You may like ETFs, coins, bars, or even jewelry.
SPDR Gold Shares (NYSE Arca: GLD) is an ETF that seeks to replicate the price of gold. GLD’s particular advantage for gold investors is that it’s highly liquid. This is not a physical gold investment, and you cannot take delivery. If you don’t want to own and store physical gold, this is the gold investment for you.
