    I hedge by shorting gold using CFD's when the trade opportunity presents itself.
    I used to do it with silver too, when I held enough phys to call it a hedge.
    Now my silver trading amounts to no more than paper trading for profit.
    Ronnie 666 introduced me to the benefits of paper trading - he loves it. ;)

    What's your rationale behind that?

    If gold goes down the ratio closes and I can switch silver for gold. Makes sense.

    If gold loses its value I am somewhat protected because I don't have much in the way of gold.

    Any gold that I do own is generally in the form of Sovereigns and other collectible circulation coins which have some numismatic value, though most of their value is based on bullion value.

    I have a few bars that I bought when gold was sitting around $800 so I have a way to go before I lose too much.

    Yeah, but it can be turtles all the way down.

    So you hedge gold with USD, ok. You now hold USD, what do you hedge that with if USD goes down (hint: gold and USD can go down at the same time). Then what do you hedge against whatever you used to hedge against USD with, and on it goes until, well, you just have a diversified portfolio and that's that.

    You can’t protect yourself against ever eventuality. This explains the difference between diversification and hedging.

    Your ultimate hedge would be good quality land with permanent water ( the type that can carry dairy cows ) and lots of it.

    You only need a hedge if you think you might be wrong.

    I took a light jacket with me today, just in case it’s cool when I leave work tonight. I think I’ll be okay, but just in case I’m wrong I’ve got it with me.
