I had been gradually reducing my USD deposits in stages since the second half of last year, moving it into gold and so far it has been doing well. Yes, the USD has strengthened in the last 1 month, but gold has risen even more. At the moment, barring short term fluctuations, gold is the best currency. Silver is second best. Meanwhile, I'm still waiting for the minsky moment to buy black gold. The smart money is all waiting on the sidelines.
