How Much 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.
There is no one size fits all when it comes to Precious Metals investing. Several factors must be considered before deciding how much of your portfolio to dedicate to Precious Metals.
