    PHYS and PSLV are funds that hold gold or silver. GLD, SLV, SGOL and SIVR are also ETFs that hold gold or silver. I would go with SGOL or SIVR, though some conspiracy theorists will tell you they do not hold the physical.

    Depends on your 401k account. Is it a full brokerage account? Or are you limited to just a select group of funds?

    Precious Metals In Your IRA

    Are You Tired Of Risking All of Your Hard-Earned Retirement Money In The Stock Market?

    You’ve worked hard to secure your retirement income for the future, but there are uncertain economic conditions, both in the United States and world-wide. There is volatility in the stock market and a weakening U.S. Dollar. Are these factors putting your hard-earned dollars at risk?

    APMEX Can Help You Diversify Your Holdings And Add A Defensive Asset To Your Portfolio.

    It is simple and easy to rollover all or any portion of your stock based IRA into a Precious Metal IRA. Precious Metals are widely regarded as a “defensive asset,” that can provide a level of safety for your principal during volatile times. That is because Precious Metal price movements are often contrary to the stock market’s movements. Precious Metals may also provide a level of diversification to your stocks, bonds and mutual funds and diversification is widely considered a prudent course of action. You may purchase gold, silver, platinum or palladium and hold your investments in an Individual Retirement Account. Many experts recommend that at least 5 - 10% of your retirement dollars be invested in precious metals.

    You Get Combined Expertise For A Winning Retirement Strategy.

    At APMEX, we are your experts in Precious Metals. We work closely with the leading IRA custodians that have a respected record of accomplishment and meet our strict standards for IRA custodial partners.

    Thanks for the information.
    You gave me a good starting point.

    whatever you do, do not hold your precious metals investments in any traceable account! One of the greatest benefits to holding physical silver/gold is that it is wealth that can't be traced and is very easy to move. Don't take that benefit away from yourself by investing in a 401k. Save your 401k for the other investments.
