Fed Taper Plans
With $4 Trillion on the FED's Books and another $85B being added monthly (as much as 2/3 of all new Treasury issues are purchased by the Fed), Tapering, will have two indisputable consequences:
1) Treasury Interest Rates will increase dramatically (bond investors will panic as their "Safe Haven" investments (which have been proven to be safe since Disco was popular!)).
2) That money must go somewhere. With Real Estate on fire again and Stocks at new all-time highs, I vote for Gold.
Specific Recommendations: GLD, GDX (ETF that invests in Gold Companies), TBT (Leveraged Short Treasuries) and consider Long-term Puts on TLT.
I could be wrong - I don't get paid for this (other than what I make or lose from my own choices :o)
