How much of your wealth should be gold?

Most estimates suggest that investments in gold, such as Gold for IRA investment, should represent only 5 to 10% of your portfolio and no more. This will ensure that your portfolio has room for other investments, such as mutual funds, stocks, P2P loans, etc. Physical gold should offer a new dimension to your wealth portfolio, since you may initially only invest 5 to 10% of your liquid assets.
