    I see that the Dow is down over 300 points and oil is down over US $2 at the moment so I doubt we've seen the bottom for the ASX yet.

    ahhh Jan 10, 2019. Seems so long ago...

    XJO up 13.04% plus some dividends...
    Gold in AUD up 25% minus some storage costs...
    Australian Government Bonds 2047 maturity (longest on offer) up 23% plus some yield...
    AUD down ~6% on the USD minus some interest rate differential...

    and that's just the benchmark...

    I had no idea if the strategy would perform strongly in the future and I still don't!

    So many people saying to me over the last few years why I hold TWENTY FIVE PERCENT of my portfolio in cash!

    Why, it doesn’t yield anything after inflation.

    Welcome to March 2020, where even AAA rated long duration government debt is going down as people sell whatever’s liquid to meet redemptions and margin calls.

    Unless you’re short or long vol, cash is the only thing not going down today.

    Everyone’s freaking out, I’m looking for rebals. Another great day for it.
