Re: How do you invest the gold portion?

I've looked at the buy / sell prices over a number of years over a number of dealers, and the Eagles are always the round-trip losers. That said, I probably will never buy another coin, and will be buying ETF AAAU in the future, now that there is no longer any commission to buy it. Speaking of buy ...

Re: Gold Purchase!

Only iau etf now.

Personally I was relieved when I sold all physical gold.

I believe deleting the sites cookies resolved it each time which would explain why incognito mode would also work bypassing cookies.

Re: Where to Start Out...

Re: THE RECOMMENDED

I have become self help junkie lately. https://www.amazon.com/Miracle-Definite-Napoleon-Success-Course/dp/1469005395 Any audio books read by Mitch Horowitz are addicting.
