I would gladly pull out of the market if I could find a half-dozen banks in which I could disperse my dinero at 4%, FDIC. Have 2 coming due (10 year CDs) at that rate or higher but what I see now is pathetic. Soooo, I'll stay with my precious metals, oil and Brazilian stocks for now. Just not a greedy guy, I guess.
greedy .you will be poor fool.inflation and taxes greater then 4 now.cpi is a fraud measure you best rethinki your strategy or you and your family will be in for rude awakening in next couple years
What nat-gas symbols? I like that idea.
I figure the place to be is as "cost plus" as possible right now. In other words, if the dollar goes to absolute garbage, there are certain goods that people have to have. Natural gas is a good example. The gas companies can just add their margin to the wholesale cost and pass it through to the consumer (who is getting bogus Obama bucks as welfare or social security payments). I like MO too (people will increase smoking as the dollar collapses). I don't like gold at these levels as they can dump Fort Knox reserves, tighten margin requirements, and raise interest rates.
What other dollar independent investments make sense? I also like the idea of shorting junk bonds (~fund is paying 6%).
