How to Buy Gold: a Beginner’s Guide to Investing in Gold

Big professional traders invent the contractual terms of their futures trading on an ad-hoc basis and trade directly with each other. That’s because your margin on a $100,000 future will probably be about 5% – i.e. $5,000. As a buyer you cannot get out of paying margin calls in a falling market until you sell, which is why buying futures sometimes costs people very the barefoot investor much more than they originally invested. Margin is the downpayment usually lodged with an independent central clearer which protects the other party from your temptation to walk away. So if you deal gold futures you will be asked to pay margin, and depending on current market conditions it might be anything from 2% to 20% of the total value of what you dealt.

On the other hand, bullion held in smaller-sized bars and coins provides much more liquidity and is quite common among gold owners. Many people think of gold bullion as the large gold bars held at Fort Knox in Kentucky.
