Inflation and deflation: Keep your portfolio safe
“Sometimes it’s hard to tell whether inflation or deflation is the bigger threat. When you can’t tell what to do, plan for both. A diversified portfolio that includes allocation to investments that fare well during inflationary periods and investments that fare well during deflationary periods can provide a measure of protection regardless of what happens in the economy.”
USAGOLD note: A gold diversification can go a long way in protecting against either or both and all the hybrids in between. Please see: Black Swans, Yellow Gold – How gold performs during periods of deflation, chronic disinflation, runaway stagflation and hyperinflation.
