People who cannot spell commodities shouldnt own any

Jim Rogers : That’s impossible to answer. People should have owned 100 per cent of their portfolio in gold in the last decade. It depends on what’s going to happen. If you don’t know anything about gold, you probably shouldn’t own any. If you know a lot, your portfolio will reflect your view of gold. I own few stocks. I mainly own commodities. But I think I know a little bit about commodities. People who cannot spell commodities shouldn’t own any.
