Hello, how are you today?

MyVirtualCPA :

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a CPA here to help you with your finance question

MyVirtualCPA :

I think it's a great idea to purchase some small amounts of gold and silver to hold. Gold and silver will always be something that's good for trade, in the event something goes wrong

MyVirtualCPA :

If you're only going to invest $5,000 I would invest in silver.

MyVirtualCPA :

If you do silver and gold, I'd do $5k of each

MyVirtualCPA :

Do you have any further questions about purchasing gold and silver?
