I am convinced we are about to have significant inflation - significant enough that my ten years of living below my means, saving and investing could be substantially de-valued. We've looked into precious metals and I just don't see having 5,000 ounces of silver lying around as practical - nor buying a certificate for silver somewhere else and paying a holding fee. But I would be interested in a fund, ideally with low load and exchange-traded that did the buying of metals for me. I think this could be a decent hedge against inflation for a moderate amount of my portfolio.Does anyone know of a fund I can get into with a small investment ($2K ish to start), get out of easily, and puchase shares through my bank the same way I make the car payment? (I have a couple of large banks with online bill pay; I'd prefer to avoid a brokerage firm)What do you think - both of the strategy and do you have specific investment ideas? I am open to slightly alternative strategy EG actually buying the metals myself. Mostly I'm interested in gold and silver.thanks!--matt heusser
