Is Gold A Better Investment Than Bonds For Reducing Risk?

Thursday, April 7, 2011 - 7:03 AM
USA Today article warns how gold can be more risky than bonds:
Gold is 232% more risky than bonds and even riskier than large U.S. stocks. So if you shift into gold thinking you’re protecting yourself, you may very well be boosting your risk and subject your portfolio to extreme peril.

Article doesn't really look into using gold just as an insurance policy for major fiscal problems in the US.
