Of course there are more about gold investment than these three questions to answer. And most investors learn from many different sources as they invest.

What is gold bullion? It is a certain quantity of gold in the form of bars, coins, plates and ingots. Although gold will not lose its entire value, there are still risks involve when the price decrease to a lower level as compared to the price you have bought. If you were to think that you will not lose money when investing in gold, you would have to change that perception right now.

Before you start to invest in gold, whether it is in the form of gold bars, gold coins or any other gold investments, you must do some homework by gathering the data and study the trends. You cannot simply invest because your friend advises you to do so because it is not as easy as you think. It can cost as much as the other form of investment and when the trend do not go your way, you can lose money.

The most ideal place for an investor to purchase gold is from a reputable and highly recommended dealer. There are many investors who buy gold from dealers whom are relatives or friends with the assumption that they are more trustworthy than other strangers. There is nothing wrong from buying from someone who is close to you but the price you are paying may be higher than other dealers.

You have to put a little time and effort in some researches in order to find the best dealer. You can make comparison of the cost of gold bullion from the different online and offline dealers, taking into consideration the other costs like insurance and shipping. With more information, you can be more confidence when buying your gold from the specific dealer.

Like buying gold, you have to find a company who is willing to pay you a high price for your physical gold. You can easily sell most types of physical gold but you have to do some homework in order to find the best option. You may sell the gold to the same dealer you purchase it from if the price is good enough for you. However, you can sell it to another dealer if that company is willing to pay you a higher price.

Apart from doing researches as mentioned above, you should have a budget so as to invest what you can afford. If you are going for the gold bullion bars, you must understand that there are often some hefty fees involve when you sell it. Other costs also include storage, shipping and insurance. Only when you know how much you can afford, your risk of the investment can be minimized.
