You may be wondering if you “missed the boat” on gold.
After all, the price of gold is already up 15% this year. It’s at its highest level in 15 months.
Gold stocks, which are leveraged to the price of gold, have done even better.
Gold’s 15% jump has caused the Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX), which tracks large gold miners, to soar 68% this year. Many individual gold stocks have gained 100% or more.
With massive gains like that, it’s easy to think that you’ve missed your chance.
