    GOLD is definitely a big YES for 2009. The Fed will soon start printing new money to buy up all kinds of debt, which will devalue the dollar.

    GOLD investors should be diversified: physical gold (bullion coins from dealers and the U.S. Mint), metal ETFs (IAU or GLD), and mining shares (like GDX). Any and all of the above will do well when inflation really hits.
