    Im wondering if its possible to invest my super fund (currently in australian super) in gold or silver as from what im reading these have bottomed and heading north in a big way. Not saying i will but interested and even possible to do so. Im not that savy in super investments but usually go with a balanced plan. But i dont want to miss the boat if these go to the moon. Interseted in peoples comments. Thanks in advance

    Or you could talk to Au.Super about changing out of the balanced option and into gold & silver ETF's. They have a range of options you can choose from and swap around as you see fit.
