Historically almost every time a major crisis happened, the price of gold went up.
Just look at the amounts different governments invest in gold .
There will be ups and downs but this was and still is the ultimate asset to offset the risk of a major crush.
Avoid risky brokers that will go bankrupt during a crisis.
Make sure the stop loss is low enough and the take profit is higher considering the huge spike in gold during the 2008 financial crisis.
I don't care if it goes down 10 or even 20%, I will always hold gold just in case something bad happens.
In the future something might replace gold but nowadays its still smart to keep 5-10% of your portfolio in gold .
