There may be another dip or two ahead in gold and silver before precious metals begin a push toward new highs, but we should be close enough to a bottom to start averaging into CEF. This closed-end precious metals holding fund that has an unblemished history going back more than half a century. CEF holds all of its inventory in secured vaults, and its holdings are audited regularly. This single fund gives you 50/50 exposure to gold and silver, is highly liquid, and will not issue new shares unless they are non-dilutive to existing holders. It also has recently been selling at a discount to new asset value, which is rare for this security.

As the World printing presses continue and international currencies are devalued, gold and silver will become good investments.

Central banks printing money. Gold got a positive mention from 3 of the 9 Barron's Roundtable members in Jan 13.

Balanced play between gold and silver. Unlike SLV and GLD, this fund has a better reputation for holding the actual bullion, which may become relevant as bullion shortages become more apparent. With Asian gold buying and Sprott's upcoming silver purchases I would expect that demand may increase, especially if central banks continue to expand the money supply.

The fund is audited twice a year, to verify its holdings. GLD and SLV aren't audited. This is the logical pick for precious metals exposure. Next best thing to holding the physical metals. As the fear contagion spreads, gold / silver exposure is a must.

For a reason of paranoia it's better to hold gold and silver outside of US

Long term I think gold and silver will underperform the S&P. Especially from this point.

Weekly revolutions in the Middle East and North Africa, with concomitant oil price shocks, continued turmoil in the bond markets related to multiple Sovereign Debt crises - all point to continued rise in gold and silver holdings.

With the dollar teetering on the edge, and with the questionable security of other gold investments, CEF has the best chance of being the financial life preserver.

Gold is in a long bull market. CEF keeps your gold in Canada, which is safer than having your gold in the U.S. because U.S. government might confiscate gold holdings when things get ugly.

The fund holds "allocated, segregated and unencumbered gold and silver bullion and does not speculate in gold and silver prices".
