Question How are you guarding against inflation?

Inflation is here, despite what the government says.

What are you doing to protect yourself against it?

Just gotta look for commodities that are still relatively cheap.

I like Platinum right now.

Maybe inflation is the incarnation of the long-awaited correction.

I'll deal with it the way I usually do... long-term equity positions (bonds are no better than cash right now). Somewhat hedged with investment real-estate.

Stocks and real estate like usual. I'm normally a debt free guy but having a low interest mortgage right now sounds like a great idea.

Very optimistic about QFS. Until we get there, precious metals
most definitely. Anyone using crypto as a hedge? I noticed that
PayPal, Tesla and others are now accepting Bitcoin.

Only two rational investment strategies:
1. For optimists - a broadly diversified stock portfolio or - better yet - a low expense index 500 mutual fund.
2. For pessimists - guns, ammo, and freeze dried food.

I'd recommend NATO 7.62... good utility for hunting medium/large game.
