I can't predict the future, or what the Fed will do. Either we will inflate, or not. I am ready for both contingencies. (Or at least, foolishly believe I am). Lots of bullion, and a nice amount of cash.

Hell, I even have lots of money in a speculative stock with a beta of 2.2.

As far as things getting ugly when a recession hits, yeah, metals will tank along with everything else, question is, what happens then?

What happens then is the people who are hugely net short make a killing. :)

Yeah, but after that....don't think those shorts will roll over to long positions? ;)

Dunno....I can't think of any instance where gold has been a deflationary hedge...yeah during the Depression, but that was when gold was tied to the dollar. Just so many variables, and depends on which one you focus on.

IMO the PM bull market is far from over.
