Biggest return on investing for retirement, in my opinion would be in order, Gold, Silver, and Platinum. No Stocks. No Bonds. No bank investments with slow growth. Silver might prove to give a bigger bang for your buck, throughout the next 8-12months. My choice will always be Gold.
Gold has the Green Flag buy
Silver hat the Green Flag buy
Platinum gets the Yellow hold
