The ultimate Hedge / Insurance

People buy gold and silver for different reasons.  For some they are ‘all in’ on a belief of imminent massive capital gains.  For most it is about balancing your portfolio to cater for all outcomes.  Some call it hedging, some call it insurance, we call it smart.  The graph below should send shivers down the spines of those ‘all in’ equities.  Sometimes you need to step back from what your equities-centric advisor or newspaper is saying and do your own thinking.  Read our news yesterday and apply some supply/demand thinking. Read about what is really happening on global debt and money printing and ask yourself how that could be sustainable.  Ask yourself then whether your hard earned wealth is balanced for each scenario.
