Looking for a way to invest internationally. As an American, considered Gold. But, I don't want to deal with actual metal Any ideas? I don't trust the US dollar right now.

Re: investments

gold certificates or etfs?
I also hear you can buy a small portion of a company, even one not in the US, in the hope it does really well and you get a share of the profits or can sell it on to someone else for more than you paid.

If the US Dollar goes down it will probably take the whole financial system with it. So, if you don't trust the Dollar you better get physical gold.
