With currency turmoil a major concern, and economic uncertainty a reality, investors have flocked to precious metals. While physical ownership is the most direct method, there are numerous instruments available to investors looking to gain exposure to gold or silver.
Both gold and silver have a long history as a form of currency, and they continue to attract investors who are looking for a safety hedge against inflation or uncertainty in the fiat currency market.
