I am a travel nurse. I am informed I may have to take a permanent position if the Obama health care bill is not reversed as I am counted in the full time even though I work for various travel companies and they would not be able to sustain the financial burden and will fold. I am long on gold bullion, have bonds in 401k cash in IRA and want to invest in gold and oil through the IRA and do not know enough how to do it, I may have to convert the IRA in to a broker account.
