I have a friend who loves to invest. I will not be surprised if she will be able to buy gold bars anytime soon. As of the moment, she already purchased a condo unit and a brand new car. In five years time, she will be able to pay these two investments thus she is set for a new one. What is good about her is she actually projects her plans and really saves for it. she asked me about gold bars and I told her that I am really no expert. I suggested that she visits sites that might help her. United States Gold Bureau is one. Just yesterday, she told me that she went to the site already and she was impressed.
