Nothing says confidence in your government than a massive short position by the largest hedge fund like Bridgewater. What started out on Feb.1 as a $3 billion short against a broad spectrum of European stocks began building and quickly. By today that position had accumulated to a record $22 billion by Ray Dalio. The below link lists the companies and countries weighted in this incredible short position with Germany being the largest country to get the thumbs down by this massive hedge fund. It appears smart money is not as optimistic about global stocks markets. Of course, this presents more questions to motive: is it because of exposure to the US? Is it because of the crumbling of the authoritarian non-elected EU? In any event money should move to safety but where can we find reasonable safety?
The one thing that we know is that Dalio has increased his gold position by 400%.
It is time to step out and position yourself ahead of the curve. Stop listening to ideas and follow what many central banks, what hedge fund managers and investment banks are doing and purchase physical gold. Do what they do, not what others say. Consider 5-10% of your portfolio as gold, not as cash, fiat products or in idea stocks like Bitcoin. You can shift to gold as insurance, as well. It is not only open to elites.
