I suddenly noticed that many people start to invest in gold especially during this time when the economy seem so sour. I wonder how they still have the extra money to buy the gold and invest it because for me, I surely do not have extra. Even I have extra, I wouldn't dare to take the risk of investing on anything at all at this time. I rather keep the extra for just in case rather than touching the forbidden sum of money as I know that there will be no safe investment. Just a little shift of the economy will risk having our hard earn money gone in bulk!
