Is this the right Fund for Metals?

Hi,

Im relatively new to investing and recently decided to add precious metals to my portfolio, I was wondering if this is the right fund to go into (VGPMX).

Also, if I wanted to get into gold, what is the best way to do it on Vanguard?

Thanks

Leo

Re: 300k to invest for the long term, am I on the right track?

It's great to see that you have no debt. You will first have to make a decision about asset allocation before selecting funds to use. At age 28 50% in bonds is very conservative. At age 28 I usually would suggest around 20-25% in bonds. I usually suggest around 20-30% of stocks in international sto...
