Huge fan here of Gold in any form!! The last time the stock market took a beating, I was lucky enough to sell all my stock before the market crashed. I then took the money and purchased Gold. Gold coins to be exact. Goldline is the company I used.
I heard about them through a radio broadcast that I used to listen to. Gold is usually bought as a three to five year investment. In my humble opinion, you can never go wrong with gold. Gold right now is at its highest and suppose to go higher by year end.
