What is the best way to buy gold? What are the different options to do this?

Is there a good stock ticker symbol for this? Or is it better to buy physical gold? Where could I buy physical gold? Or does it really matter that much? I thank anyone and everyone for info and help!

    Yes, if you are going to buy it, buy physical gold.  I  prefer ingots.  Husband prefers coins.

    I buy physical gold on eBay or from other online dealers.

    You probably should not buy any of the above. Maybe a small amount of junk silver coins if you think the entire world is going to crap.

    Since I am sure you will not listen....

    XAU.....The Philadelphia Gold and Silver Index is an index of thirty precious metal mining companies that is traded on the Philadelphia Stock Exchange.

    The NYSE Arca Gold BUGS Index is a modified equal dollar weighted index of companies involved in gold mining. BUGS stands for Basket of Unhedged Gold Stocks. It is also referred to by its ticker symbol "HUI".
