Ok, it is officially on at this point with the Corona virus/rigged election results and expiration of the LIBOR all happening within an 18 month span. The writing is on the wall with another round of shutdowns to kill off the rest of most service oriented industries as well as what is expected to be a major shift away from conventional energy sources in the coming years... What I want to get an idea of is the best way to position myself going forward for the next 1.5 years or so(short term) and then beyond for 8-10 years(retirement) Currently I have a majority of investments in commercial and residential RE that are around 70% equity in total market value of holdings. Half of these holdings are split with a partner. I have roughly 35% of the amount of RE equity in retirement funds that are for the most part set at the accepted risk rate appropriate for my age(70/30)or so minus my little experimental funds that always seem to do better when I leave them alone...and last but not least about half of the total equity in RE in liquid cash, savings, CD's and such. Knowing that taxes of ALL kinds(including RE and capital gains)are likely to go up drastically as well as inflation with the coming of UBI and government assistance programs and debt forgiveness where do you guys see the biggest opportunities? My understanding is typically when the CB does any kind of reset they will default to using gold as a way to value their paper(or electronic transfers in the future). Would they manipulate the value of gold to perhaps make it more or less desirable? Factoring in taxes, inflation, interest rates, and market cycle timing what will be the key to continued financial success. Thoughts?
