Frank reminds investors that he has always advocated a 10-percent weighting in the metal, 5 percent in gold stocks and 5 percent in gold bullion, while rebalancing annually.

Frank also points out the spectacular performance seen from gold miners during 2016. In fact, gold stocks as measured by the NYSE Arca Gold Miners Index were up 55 percent in 2016. So how will gold fare in the New Year? Watch the full interview below to see what Frank thinks!
