I'm about to head overseas, to a decent role paying $US.
I'm concious the long term outlook for the $US is weakness, at least until the treasury purchase spree is over.
What are some strategies I can use to protect the savings I will accumulate? Buy gold? (Weakening $US = higher gold price), Buy oil futures (weakening $US pushes up price too?)
Of ocurse the above are based on demand staying the same (or increasing) from current levels and purely increasing on a weakening $US. Though it does look like the price of both will increase with demand aswell, especially oil as the world comes out of recession, which adds a little more "Security" to the hedge.
I'd appreciate some opinions from the more knowledgeable ASF members (so, all of you )
