I am curious, gold has always been described as an alternative investment which can be used as a hedge in a overall portfolio.
I wonder what kind of gold people are buying and why.

Golds performance hasn't been the greatest lately and with inflation being so high i wonder if its really that much of a hedge as its main description I've found is to be a hedge against inflation. Doesn't seem to be much at the moment.

personally i would much rather invest in the miner's rather than gold itself that way when gold prices rise share price rise and you get a nice dividend along the way
