There is fear in the land. Many are asking where to go if a deflationary repeat of 2008 is in the cards. The response to such an event may be an initial decline in all holdings across the board. The market roller coaster may take us down, but if we keep our eyes open, at exactly the same moment we could see a sudden rise directly ahead in certain sectors.
The drop might initially reflect a short term decline in commodity markets which are inherently volatile. Nevertheless, the eventual payoff may be worth the ride. Global debt crisis woes may be causing the recent breakouts in hard assets such as gold and silver as global speculators search for authentic safe havens.
