0%? Really? Zero?

0%?  Really? Zero?
I recently got into a disagreement with a colleague of mine.  He believes that the proper allocation to gold (or other precious metals) is zero, and as you might know, I feel gold and or silver are an essential part of every portfolio.  I'm sure this conversation is not unique and I wanted to address the articles and information found on the web that attempts to support the claim that you should not own any precious metals. I will address this piece by David Marotta specifically since it encompassed several points I found in other sources.  The primary focus of this article is that gold does...
