Investments, trends and recommendations (Mar 2017)

General strategy: the eye of the storm

Like we started warning in our last GEAB issue, the utmost caution is still required these days. The appearance of recovery, here and there, is either the effect of short-term communication, or sources of disruptions with unpredictable consequences (or both). Our general advice is to stay vigilant and adopt a double strategy:

. Maintain in place all maximum precautionary strategies, namely remain as liquid as possible, conserve your heap of gold and other safe havens, and stay warm in your own property (home);

. Risk exposure over a very short amount of your assets and over short time periods: investment in short-term stock shares, flash trading of liquid securities (currencies, gold) in a purely speculative approach with no commitment at all.
