Hey I wanted to what people think. I started saving for gold and was thinking of spending it down over my retirement one day. Gold: 92 ounces I was thinking of using 4 ounces of gold a year to supplement retirement needs. Im going to be savings for a house now so I wont be able to add much to my gold holdings. Then afterwards Ill have a mortgage and children and that would be the main investments as gold will take a backseat for me. Ill still try to grab some silver but won't have much to invest. How far will 4 ounces of gold help in supplementing my future retirement one day. 92/4= 23 years of security 92/5= 18.4 years of security I plan to work til about 67 or so. And my silver holdings will probably be gifted to family one day/retirement emergency fund. Yes I am being somewhat reliant on the fact that social security would be able to pay out 75% of scheduled benefits. I just know that there is a decent amount of people in America who retire and depend on social security for 90% of their income. I decided to hold my small amount of wealth in gold so that when I do get older as I dont plan on touching my holdings it will provide options and would supplement retirement down the road. What do you think?
