Have a look at ASA.

It's the investment class everyone luv's to hate for very understandable reasons. Even I dislike owning the stuff, and yet I've been overweighted in coins and stock for some time and will hang on to both as long as the $ printing presses are screaming at warp speed. Who knows, maybe I'll end up eating crow in the end but for now I think there is quite a bit more upside to go. Either way it's going to be a volatile, unsettling ride.
