Investments, trends and recommendations (October)

Cash, gold, commodities and cryptos – A strong case 

The above remarks reinforce our recommendations from last March “A short guide for investors in times of reflation/inflation“.[1] A new monetary system will soon be in place where fiat currencies will switch to ultra-fluid “exchange vehicles” such as digital currencies, a real monetary paradigm shift. If the exit goes badly, have cash, gold, commodities and crypto-currencies. If it doesn’t go too badly, have gold, commodities and crypto-currencies.[2] Ripple has just partnered with the Bank of England to design its future digital pound. We see this as an indication that time is indeed running out and that the long decision-making times of the BIS’s work no longer match the urgency of the situation… As we anticipated a year ago.
