It is relatively simple to do. Decide the form of gold you want and how you want to buy/invest then call Monex. There are investment specialist who will guide you through the process. Your price and purchase rates will be confirmed, you will then get a written confirmation of the transaction. Payment is due the day you call and once the holding period for money transfer is completed, your gold will be on the way to you. You can have it shipped to your bank and walla! gold is yours! In the future if you wanted to change your investment and sell, that is easy to do to. Just call Monex again and a sale can be transacted.
Gold shoes? Not so good an investment. Nice novelty. Gold coins or ingots? Now that is what I want to have for keeps.
What I do is kick them in the pants with a diamond buckled shoe!
