Hi folks, my first post and I need help structuring my portfolio for long term security. I am completely confused about what is safe and if we face inflation or deflation when I read the financial press. I have several million I want to park long term with security as the top priority. I am told treasuries may default, property may deflate, gold may be confiscated, banks may fail etc. Any way round this horrible mess? Many thanks for any help. My reason for posting here is I am learning to trade basically because I am thinking that perhaps there is no long term security and mobility of cash is the best option. However that in itself brings risks outside of trading performance like if the broker fails or the exchange is attacked by terrorists. I am totally confused about how to build a safe long term strategy but thankfully my swing trading is coming on well.
