If you're pretty knowledgable in the cycles that gold futures takes (Actually, *all* futures investments run in cycles, just like the economy
itself), you can invest as little as 1% in gold futures (it's called "leveraging")...Each time the value of gold hits near a peak, sell it & wait
for the value to drop some, then leverage it again...
...Eventually, you might be able to actually buy some of the gold outright & then have it stored in an overseas bank.
Be very careful though...Investing in futures can be risky & you can lose not only your "leverage money" but a lot more than that as well. It's
possible to order a "stop gap" on your investment so that you're not likely to lose more than your initial "leverage" investment though.
Once you have a reasonably sufficient amount of real *gold* stored away, then you can use it to wean yourself off of the "Credit-Based Economy" used
in most developed parts of the world.
