    Highly unlikely to go broke as gold is a precious metal and has been in demand for thousands of years.

    Gold isn't an investment, its a hedge against inflation to protect your investments. You buy gold to keep you from losing your shorts in the event of run away inflation, but your actually hoping that inflation stays away and your real investments do well. If you don't already have a sizable diversified portfolio of other investments, you don't need gold.

    The market value of gold can go up and down on a whim depending on demand. Not a good idea to rely on this alone.

    • it's not depend on demand and supply its depend on share market

    LMOA,

    today its 1250 an ounce,

    in 2012 it was 1900 an ounce.

    form 1980 to the year 2000 the price went up barely at all.

    Yes. It does not go up in value each year. It goes up some years and down other years. It is not a stable investment.

    Gold is not a stable investment, nor does it continually go up.

    Gold goes up and down but it never really goes anywhere.
