Gold (and precious metals in general) are not "investments". They are for speculators and traders. The MAIN component driving the price of gold is FEAR. When fear is high, gold is high. When fear is low, gold is low. Gold has no earnings behind it, it does not pay dividends, and it does not produce anything. The price of gold is not remotely predictable.

This is a tough question as most serious "investors" do not invest in gold so much as they use it as a hedge. If you look on line at what an ounce of gold bought at various times in history, they are roughly equal. So if an ounce of gold in today's market buys a 10 year old used car, it likely bought similar most times in history. Clearly this is not an exact science. A better question is: "Should I own gold?" and the answer always is yes. "How much?" well, that depends on your time frame. If you can afford it, hold up to 5% of your investment capital in gold. You can buy bullion on line at AMPEX or eBay. Watch the shipping costs though. Also, you can buy an ETF - check on the GLD for example. Good Luck!

it's never a bad idea to own some gold but now isn't the best time to buy because it's trending down. wait for the current retracement to complete and price to start ticking up and then buy.

Perhaps not; gold has reached its peak and you might like to wait for its downtrend. Be on the watch.
