Buy Gold stocks for profit, buy physical Gold for safety and hard cash that can't evaporate. The time is now. Buy, buy, buy!
The lows are either going to be in today or by the end of next week at the latest for Gold stocks. Gold may take a little longer, but it is still a good deal (if you can find any). The coming long term cyclical Gold bull in stocks will last 2-3 years and will create gains of 200-300% at a minimum while the rest of the market burns. If your 401k or 403b or IRA or Roth IRA won't let you buy Gold stocks, either take your money out and don't participate any more or stay in short-term US Federal government bond instruments (5 years to maturity and less).
General stocks (i.e. S&P 500, Dow) are bottoming over the next week and will rally for at least a few months, but then they are going down again - hard! Gold stocks are bottoming over the next week and then they are going to take off like a rocket ship and start a new bull market that will last years.
Buy, buy, BUY! BUY! BUY!
