Finances is a difficult topic in recent years.
Perhaps you only watch CNN or ABC news and think maybe you should buy gold because the tv commercial said so, or the economy is looking a bit rough with some inflation and your advisor says diversify cause it worked last time in 2008.
Perhaps you ignore that propaganda crap and observe the real puppet masters as they talk about banning cash outright and forcing a conversion to a CDC, the davos people saying they have a CDC ready to try out in 2023(they said this last summer) and that the central banks are on a 55 year high buying as much gold as possible.
Perhaps you know a little bit of history and recall when Germany had it's severe financial crisis that lead to a big change in gov't they also made owning gold illegal and confiscated all of it, and told anyone that paid off debt when inflation ran away they had to go back to a certain date and reinstate the debt and repay it again with the new gold backed currency.
Perhaps you recall in our own country at one time owning gold was illegal. They changed it back.
Because of the CDC and banning cash, despite the history of owning gold when a country has a big problem, it also may seem that owning hard precious metal in your hand is better then FIAT because historically it has been, and there is no guarantee any of the above will happen, or not happen.
So finances can be hard to work through. The people that want to create the world government also want you to go broke and are trying to close every loophole they can to do so.
Owning gold seems like a way to thwart them, until they have a CDC and can monitor EVERYTHING and besides bartering you can't actually sell the gold to anyone anyway without them knowing, and if they make it illegal it will be worthless(besides barter).
So what does one do?
make sure you own the things you need if it goes upside down. Don't buy gold if you still have a mortgage. Get out of debt. Make sure you have your home in good upkeep, have multiple ways to heat it, have multiple ways to defend it, have it stocked for a power outage, keep yourself and family healthy and safe and fed. Then worry about diversifying leftover wealth. Gold is fine as a part, who knows what they will do anyway, silver, platinum, whatever. Buy some stocks. Get some bonds. Buy some art, or something physical you can hang onto. A car with no computers in it might be handy. Stuff you can barter with if it goes haywire might be handy too, tools, whatever. Land.
We are coming up on what will likely be a completely unprecedented change in our financial lives and how our economy functions. There is no way to be sure you will keep your accumulated wealth, but you can try and should try. But make sure you have the important stuff paid for and in your name only first.
If you want to go by recent history:
The big financial people said:
"Go buy land! buy a home!" When the market was approaching it's peak.
"Debt is a good value during inflation! you get the money now and the value of the debt goes down with the value of money!" as they raise interest rates.
"BUY THE GOLD." right when it was at it's peak, shortly before it dropped a bit and they are on a peak of buying it we haven't seen in half a century plus, as Hillary Clinton goes public saying cash should be illegal.
If you haven't been paying attention, when they go on the main huge TV channels and tell you to do something, you should take note and at a minimum do nothing or better do the opposite or best find out why they are telling you to do something so you know you made the right choice. Personally, since they started TV commercials on prime time and during the super bowl telling me I should buy gold I have been looking to sell and move into other things. Back in 2008 when they were screaming in the TV about "SELL US YOUR GOLD" well look what happened after that for the next decade.
I am not a financial advisor.
