How much should you invest in bullion?
Most advisors suggest 5-20% of your portfolio should be committed to precious metals.
Purchase bullion as your budget allows. Set a goal for the percentage of your investments bullion will represent, somewhere between 5-20% depending on your tolerance for risk.
How often should you buy bullion?
After you decide on the amount to purchase, decide how often you want to buy it. Frequent and smaller purchases will help spread your risk over time more than infrequent larger bullion purchases. Metals are a long term investment. Set a schedule to purchase bullion in smaller quantities in addition to buy orders when your preferred metal dips below a certain threshold.
