How Much Gold Should I Buy

Like many investments, buying Precious Metals depends on your budget, objectives, time horizon and other factors. Some financial professionals recommend keeping 5% to 10% (some say more) of your investable assets in bullion and maintaining that percentage through regular rebalancing. It can make a difference in overall portfolio performance.
