I don't see gold certs as being the same as physical gold. Gold as an investment has typically lagged equity/property/bonds.

So the only reason I would keep gold is so that in a shit hits the fan scenario and you need to buy passage or buy food with non-banana notes, then gold would reign supreme. If my gold is in the form of a certificate, who knows if I can even get it out of the vault at that stage. I reckon your rolexes would function in a similar manner.

Your shit hits the fan is different from my shit hits the fan scenario.

Yours is Armageddon, end of the world scenario.
In such an instance, physical gold is also useless.
Probably food and lifestock more valuble?

My Rolexes are for shiok.
Ultimately, its likely i give them away.

With STI breaking 3,300, I could not resist but took some money off the table.   It just feels too good to lock in profits. A modest $3K.   [:p]

 

Hope to see STI approaches 3,400 soon!

Even with Gold you will need it in coin form (not bullion) to get yourself out of a mess.

 

Long term wise a few interesting things were more valuable then gold once things started to Dig In

1. Toothpaste & Toilet Paper

2. Gravy/concentrated soup

3. Pepper and other spices

 

Luckily I have the above 3 at home and I will trade it for your Gold at half the weight, consider it a friendly gesture  [laugh]

Seriously, I have been playing with marbles so far; my war chest has not been meaningfully deployed so far.   

 

The real big money comes after a stock market crash - which I am still patiently waiting.  Once it happens, my war chest will be used aggressively.

Sit with enough basic cash for backup but never a full chest.

Sick of those times when cash depreciates with respect to everything else. It happens once in a few years and seems to be headed our ways now.

If not property, then equity.
