    Hi all,

    This may not be the right place to post this, but I am looking for some suggestions as to investing in precious metal funds, either the physical commodity or possibly stocks. I would like to set up a monthly contribution to take advantage of dollar cost averaging.

    This would be a long term play.

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks in advance.
  2. CEF is the only one I would consider. Physical gold and silver held only and fully audited bullion vaults.

    Not a reco, just a suggestion as per your thread title.
  3. GDX - Gold/Silver miners ETF
    DBP - Deutsche Bank precious metals ETF
  4. H2O


    The most liquid ETF's that are actually backed by PHYSICAL holdings and are not leveraged are:

    Gold - Streettracks Gold (GLD US)
    Silver - iShares Silver Trust (SLV US)

    For platinum I had a harder time finding a liquid ETF backed by physical, but in the end decided to invest via:
    ETFS Physical Platinum (London) - PHPT LN

    All these trade in USD
