How can I use my CPF to invest into Gold? Looks like gold is a safe place to hedge my investment for now. Can I buy gold through my brokerage account?

CPF says: "In addition, you can only invest your OA savings up to 35% and 10% of your investible savings* in stock and gold respectively, also known as the stock and gold limits. "

Pull up the year on year gold chart https://www.kitco.com/scripts/hist_charts/yearl...

You need a CPF investment account to buy gold etf.

But buying gold with CPF money is not a very good choice. This is because CPF gives a minimum 2.5% which is already beating inflation numbers. Plus, it is guaranteed. Gold on the other hand can fluctuate in price. It will not payout dividends nor interest, this means when you hold gold, your CPF OA invested in gold will not compound at 2.5% every year.
