How to Buy Canadian Gold Stocks

If you are convinced that gold is the investment instrument that will best work for you in the years to come, you may consider buying gold stocks for a start. Undeniably, they are the most comfortable choice of the average investor – buying small amounts of physical gold from the local dealers will hardly yield the returnability you expect. At the same time, the markets of gold futures, where the best rates are offered, are accessible only for large scale institutional investors such as governments and state-owned corporations. Buying gold stocks, in turn, boils down to buying stocks in a gold mining company, or companies, based in Canada. Alternatively, you can buy shares of international mining corporations traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange or the New York Stock Exchange. Below are some companies you can consider when you think of buying Canadian gold stocks.
