Buying Gold.....

has anybody bought gold coins/biscuits here in the US???? If yes, then how do u know you can trust the dealer.

Here in Artesia there many Jews and Gujjus who have jewellery shops but I am not sure if they adulterate the bullion before selling it.

Not sure about US but in Canada when we bought gold coins, we bought it from ICICI bank. See if you have ICICI close by somewhere and check if they sell gold coins; you can trust ICICI.

Re: Buying Gold.....

My jeweler suggested me to wait a little more... Gold prices are expected to drop up to Rs. 16000.00 in a few months. But the day it happens jump to the opportunity because it will last a couple of days only.

Re: Buying Gold.....

Gold prices will come down to somewhere between 13k to 15k and it will stay there for some time,maybe a few years.

Re: Buying Gold.....

As viruss said somewhere, if you want to buy, go for the 50%, 25%, 25% strategy. Suppose the prices don't come down much? Hath malte reh jaoge. You got money to save, buy some now, more later when and if the prices come down.

Re: Buying Gold.....

Vaise some gold merchants/vendors have a monthly deposit scheme (Tanishq, ?Orr etc) for buying gold - like a recurring deposit scheme - where you can put in as little as Rs.500pm. Does anyone know more about this?
