Gold IRA

Charles Hugh Smith in his recent article talks about holding gold or real estate in an IRA or 401k.   As Wikipedia notes: "Legally speaking, precious metals in an IRA are in the custody of the trustee or custodian, not the IRA owner."   Seems to me this could be a problem.   Banks can be trustees, and the IRS also lists 60 or so approved non-bank trustees here:  http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-tege/nonbank_trustee_list.pdf

Buying gold in an IRA?

Hello to all:

 

Any thoughts on how to buy gold in an IRA?  Obviously, buying physical gold is not possible in this scenario.  However, what would be a good proxy?  

 

GLD?  Gold mining companies?

 

Any input would be appcreciated!
 

Sincerely,

 

GregB

How to buy gold in an IRA?

Hello to all:

I currently have a small IRA in a well known bank.  I want to know the best way to buy gold with this.

 

Since it's an IRA, I can't take money out and buy physical gold.  What is the better alternative?

 

GLD?  Gold miners?  

 

Any thoughts?
