Once you figure out where then it's only a matter of when. Gold Is Seasonal: When Is the Best Month to Buy? - Casey Research Makes sense. I usually buy in the summer. Worst time to buy is Sept through Nov, which is when the stock market usually takes a dump. January is also a really bad month to buy gold, probably because peoples new years resolutions to save more money, the stock market usually does real well in January, for the same reason. I say open a historical chart for the last year if the price is high don't buy, if it's near a 1 year low then buy. Pretty simple.
