    I just think all other assets have run too hard or are in correction mode. I would rather stay safe this year and therefore have picked bank interest.

    Term deposits @ 2.75%

    I changed it to include bank deposit as an option.

    (this time gold and silver DO NOT look set to drop with the market, because of the more negative outlook for the dollar) http://silverseek.com/print/17533

    there is no profit to take in metals to compensate for the stocks losses, those money had been spent in cryptos coins etc {this time round}

    [that platinum is astoundingly cheap compared to gold – at a 20-year plus record low. What is all the more surprising about this situation is that it exists at a time when the world’s biggest platinum producer by far, South Africa, which produces about 70% of it, is going to the dogs, as the country is run by zealots who appear to be intent on taking the same ruinous road as Zimbabwe after Mugabe took control. The bullish Falling Wedge visible on this chart implies that platinum is going to break higher soon and probably outperform both gold and silver as all 3 metals embark on major bullmarkets.]

    just too many bullish on Platinum on the same reasoning

    there is continuation of lower low for Platinum, there is no flat out pattern on the chart to suggest a bottom formation yet

    as long term industry in decline, the test of $752 in Oct 2008 is to be expected and the hurdler to support should be around $600

    for a return to its beginning of its own bull run was $400

    these are the critical points to watch out for when trends are concerned, unless there have been confirmed broken


    that is what I tried to watch out for

    The odds have to be against realestate and the share market for the obvious reasons of the end of huge decade long bull runs and that they already started a reverse trend in 2018.
    Crypto is a wild gamble impossible to pick.
    I think the best odds have to go toward metals and paying down debt this year.

    I said shares, but they need to be the right shares. PM related shares could do better than PM's which I also think have a chance at doing well. I wouldn't touch the usual shares (Telstra etc) with a barge pole.
