Bonds or GLD are not a bad choice for hedging. Even Charlie Munger said that these times are very difficult and confusing to begin an investment position. You can try DCA-ing across the dip so that you don't have to "time" the market. But that can be tough as well.

> Inflation doesn't change anything, as long as your money is in something that's not a government currency then the inflation doesn't change the value of what you own. Inflation changes the value of things in nominal terms though. Bitcoin is already back to an all-time high in Argentinian Pesos, and I expect it to generally continue to be for as long as bitcoin is around. Same thing happens every other currency, for the same reason, it just takes longer depending on the rate of inflation. > Demographics? That's a big assumption to make. Young people are way more pre-disposed to BTC than older people. There can easily be more new bitcoiners than bitcoiners dying off for at least another couple of decades if nothing changes. Peter Schiff one of the best examples, he's a gold bug who doesn't get it and I dont expect he ever will, but his son is a bitcoiner, which brings me to... > Eating into gold market share? That's the end goal for Bitcoin, it has to have a reason for that to happen. Already happening since day 1 for bitcoin. Many of the earliest bitcoiners who stack for the long term were gold bugs. Some still have both, some decided btc was just flat out better and moved entirely. I would hold some gold if btc didn't exist. More recently, big outflows from GLD ETF this month, as we've seen big inflows to the new BTC ETFs. Coincidence? maybe, but I doubt it.

Mentions:#GLD

I understand the tech specs and what makes it valuable, but that's qualitative, and thus, not the value. I am talking about the quantitative intrinsic value. Meaning: it's fair valuation, sans speculation. Doing valuation on BTC is -at least to my knowledge- a challenging task. There are a few models, but none that I've seen that's incredibly convincing. I consider myself a BTC maximalist, but I have to be objective. I don't like hopium, because I am also a hyperrealist. The definition of a niche is not tied to its market cap IMHO, but to its usage and, more importantly, WHO understands the tech and is using BTC. Does your dad or mom own BTC? How about your sister, or aunt, or your cousin? The gas station attendant? If the answer is mostly no, then it is probably still niche. There's a narrow subset of people who understand the tech or the economic principles behind all of this stuff. It's growing and the ETF will help, but it's still small. Gold's market cap is 13T and BTC is 1T at the time of writing this. That's not 25%, it's ~ 7.7%. Still, even if it was , and in the same vein, how many people do you know that own GLD as an investment as opposed to VOO or VTI? Gold is also a very small subset of the market. That doesn't take anything away from BTC, there's a lot of room for growth. But this tech is still in its infancy, and I think it will probably take a generation or two for people to realize the value of BTC. So when I buy it, I'm not buying for this cycle, or next. I'm buying for at least the next 10-20 years, if not more.

Bitcoin is 15 years old and supply inelastic. It's market cap isn't going to be very stable as it works it way from something like 0.1% to 1-3% of the global portfolio. At that point it'd be like if you could pull a GLD share out of your brokerage and just send that to someone overseas without the trouble of a GLD>USD>JPY conversion.

Talking something about ETF. As replied in the comments, ETFs are like a bunch of stocks or a portfolio. Some are tracing large indexes. For instance, "SPY" is tracing the S&P index, which is 500 large companies traded in the US. For the US you also have ETFs tracing NDX(tech companies mostly, with heavy weight on some top companies), DJIA and so on. There are also other types of ETFs. Here's a list of examples: \- ETFs tracking indexes in other countries' stock market indexes. \- ETFS tracking different sectors of the economy. For instance, you have SOXX for semiconductors. \- ETFS tracking other financial instruments, like TLT for 20-year bonds, GLD for US Dollar based Gold The recommendations: \- You can reduce the risk to some degree. Buying companies(like FATE in the past) might make you bankrupt, but as you buy QQQ(where FATE was a component), you won't be suffering from that losses. But - in any chance - you're in favour of Microsoft, and you might receive less yield from QQQ. \- ETFs tracking cross-sectors reduce the amount of work you need if you really want to study a certain industry. If you want to buy a specific company, you'd better know the macro bits, the industry, and how this company might perform. If you buy sector, it requires less understanding on specific companies. If you buy cross-sector indexes, it might be even easier, like you only have to know about interest rates and other major economic indicators. \- For advanced trading(perhaps after a year or two), you might encounter certain leveraged-etfs, like TQQQ(QQQ, but 3 times fluctuations) or others. They're also high-level trading tools that might be beneficial. \- ETFs are far better way if you are using a dollar-cost averaging method, especially if you're buying something on a downward trend(I don't recommend this really). But if you do, you might know a company will go bankrupt, but it's harder for a sector or a large market.

yeah I’ve slowly been closing these trades out at better times I’m not getting hit too hard. yezzir, that’s what I’m doing now. that’s what I was doing previously when I started with 1-2 year out leaps on solid companies and 30dte calls/puts on companies that I know very well. like I was saying, everything was fine until I started speedballing with crypto stocks. it’s the greed. I paper handed a bunch of MARA contracts a week and a half before the rally and I got cowboyitis and started buying calls for that and other crypto related stocks a day after etf approval. Rn I’m buying long calls and puts for GLD and leaps for GOLD. looking into trading IWM but before I touch IWM or SPY I gotta wedge my way out of this hole and I’m getting there. You got screwed and SAVE too?? Honestly that was my greed as well. It crossed my mind to run a strangle but I just ignored it cause I had full conviction that judge was gonna give us our flowers.

Buying GLD, SQ, PYPL, and MSFT calls

I wont comment on crypto as an investment, but millions of people own GLD, it has no cashflow and a higher expense ratio than many of the bitcoin ETPs. Personally I wouldn't own a large percent of my portfolio in crypto, but if someone wants a 1% exposure, there's not that much downside. Most people on this subreddit only like to passively index, which I think is a great strategy. However like I tell my siblings who ask about individual stocks, I tell them its their money if they want to gamble a small percentage on individual picks and risky investments, go for it. They most likely wont out perform the market but its fun and over a lifetime it wont matter much. If you struggle to max out all your retirement accounts id probably recommend against it, but if you have money leftover and have fun doing it, why not.

1. **MMF/HYSA** (money market fund/high yield savings account). These 2 are where you will put money you need risk free, preferably for an emergency fund. A MMF will have higher interest, currently at about 5.3% / year, however you can only withdraw during regular business hours, an HYSA has a slightly lower yield but can be withdrawn instantly. Obviously they both have their uses, this is on you to split up exactly how much should go to each, for emergency funds 2. **Investments**. First, you’ll need to setup 2 main brokerage accounts (I use TD Ameritrade/Schwab, some other common ones include E-Trade & Fidelity), a. An individual/standard account, b. A Roth IRA (retirement account) Max out contributions to your Roth IRA for the given year before you contribute to the individual, although any excess goes there. To make it simple, invest all the money you make past saving for an emergency fund & current living expenses in $VTI or $VOO (US total stock market and biggest 500 companies in the US, respectively), they’re both very similar, doesn’t matter that much which one you end up choosing. If you want you can also put a little bit into $GLD (Gold) or $GOVT (treasury bonds) or $VCIT (corporate bonds), but most of it is good in $VTI or $VOO. Do *not* touch the principle, that means whatever you put in, stays there. This will compound exponentially and before you know it, you’ll have made yourself a solid sum. Remember tho; contribute to Roth IRA before anything, then if you have excess money to invest, then invest in the individual account

The S&P 500 is already diversified by 500 different stocks, if you want to diversify further don’t do it with stocks. Chasing high dividend yields can get messy, they’re usually high for a reason. You won’t be missing out on anything, because the more you diversify, the less those special ones will have an affect on your portfolio. If you want to have more stocks than the S&P 500, buy VTI (Vanguard’s Total market fund, contains 3761 stocks). Other than that, you can buy gold either physically or through GLD, there’s several bond funds including government/corporate, short term/long term, low risk/high risk, and currency or foreign currency, which is either physical or through a fund (UUP long USD, UDN short USD)

They're spot ETFs meaning the underlying (bitcoin) is bought at spot prices, much like physical gold is bought at spot prices by ETFs like IAU & GLD.

Do any of you bothered to read the prospectus? Just a couple of points: " The Trust seeks to reflect generally the performance of the price of bitcoin." Unlike GLD, that tracks the price of a tenth of a troy ounce of gold. IBIT doesn't give any correlation, you could be buying 1 hundredth or one thousandth of a bitcoin. "Shares of the Trust are not deposits or other obligations of or guaranteed by BlackRock, Inc., and its affiliates, and are not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other governmental agency. " "The Sponsor is not responsible for losses incurred due to loss, theft, destruction, or compromise of the trust's bitcoin." "There can be no assurance that security procedures designed to protect the Trust’s assets will actually work as designed or prove to be successful in safeguarding the Trust’s assets against all possible sources of theft, loss or damage"

The spot bitcoin ETF's all have BTC held in custody. They are akin to SPY or GLD. "Paper gold" usually means owning a derivative. That's different than a spot ETF like SPY or GLD where there is an actual asset. BITO the bitcoin futures ETF is akin to paper gold.

I personally don't agree with the conspiracy that the government is siphoning all productivity gains out of our economy lol We are certainly taxed TO DEATH in ways that are both cunning and mysterious (inflation). If you invested in VOO, the total return was very good for the past 100 years, I would have been able to buy a house in cash if all I did was buy a humble and cheap sp500 index instead of putting money in a bank account. I actually think gold is a great safe-haven asset, and the more research I dig into gold, the more I admire such a simple item. I like the idea of doing 90/10 VOO/GLD or actual gold, or 75/25 VTI/GLD or even a 50/50 options trading/gold....if the good gamblers here would sock away some portion of their money into something less liquid, they could help protect some of their earnings from total annihilation.

and once again, if that's what you actually bought and held instead of blowing up your account with 0dte, then I salute you. If you invested in the international stock market, you lagged gold by 2% in the past year, and 38% the past 5 years, and about 44% since 2011 (not intentionally cherry picking, just comparing GLD to VXUS)

downvotes courtesy of the fallacy fallacy; just cause OP presents obviously HORRIBLE arguments, doesn't mean that buying gold wouldn't be a worse "investment" compared to what most of us are doing here on the daily! XD The beauty of gold is that even a child understands it's value, and for folks scared of stocks and bonds (cause the front part of their brain hasn't developed, or they are truly one of the apes), it offers them something to protect themselves from the ravages of the current fiat economic system.

Stocks are more of a house of cards though. Once we either default on our debt or devalue it through minting a $100T coin then gold will largely retain its value while fiat money and stocks will not. About the only ETF ticker that would gain in such a scenario would be GLD.

I’d make sure my retirement plan is suited to exactly what exposure I want, you and me are roughly the same age so I’m just gonna go off what I currently have/suggest; 1. Max out retirement accounts make sure contributions are ROTH so you don’t pay taxes when you withdraw, you will thank yourself for this later on. I don’t know what your company’s retirement plans investments are so I can’t really speak on that, if it’s a major company and not going bankrupt anytime soon you’re probably just good with what they have. Although I would start a ROTH IRA on your own and contribute to that aswell. 2. You guys are relatively young so you don’t need to be that conservative in terms of investment risk, put most of long term savings into an index fund like $VOO (S&P 500), put a little gold in there ($GLD), some long term gov bond funds ($TLT or $IEF, IEF a little less swings, $VGSH if you want barely any swings). 3. If you want to go into real estate, check out price:rent ratios in the area you want to rent out, the lower the number the better, all else equal, means more bang for your buck. Also contrary to popular belief, it’s actually better to put up *less* of a down payment **as long as the return on that freed up capital earns more than the cost of interest on the mortgage**, if you’re not going to invest that freed up cash, *then* put up a higher down payment

People aren't going to pile in immediately. They're going to wait and see. This lack of piling in is going to disappoint the holders who were also waiting and seeing. They'll sell the news. Price will come down, more people will sell. It'll bottom a few weeks after launch just like $GLD did and *then* people will pile their retirement accounts in.

Why isn't SLV selling off? I thought when stocks jump, GLD, SLV and TLT drop hard.

You went through the entire question without clarifying if you are talking about puts or calls. It makes a difference, as you will see. > I'm trying to trade GLD vertical spreads with LEAPS So right off the bat there's a problem. Vertical spreads work better when near-dated. There's not really much reason to trade a vertical beyond 60 DTE. > and I get assigned 2/3rds of the time within the day or two of opening the spread which kind of ruins my strategy. Don't open the vertical with either leg ITM, or even close to ATM. 30 delta OTM is a good starting point. > but is it expected that any strategy which involves ITM options will have such high ratio of assignments? Yes, particularly if you are using put spreads. ITM puts have an effective cost of carry. If the holder of the long side looks at their cumulative cost over the course of the year+ to expiration and it's more than the profit they would make compared to exercising now, they will instantly exercise.

I'm trying to trade GLD vertical spreads with LEAPS, and I get assigned 2/3rds of the time within the day or two of opening the spread which kind of ruins my strategy. Sure, the assigned options were ITM, and I get that there's always risk of being assigned, but is it expected that any strategy which involves ITM options will have such high ratio of assignments? I'm trading options that expire in 2025, not weekly options, so I figured assignments wouldn't be so frequent.

The problem with getting levered to the lats in the stock market is that most of your jobs come from those businesses, and when the jobless hell-scape/black swan/new war unfolds in 30-90 days, it might be wise to have a large position in something with negative correlation like GLD, BND, TLT etc. Maybe use your options trading skills to turn these boring assets into cash cows by wheeling them or something! You don't want to end up unemployed and have to liquidate your stocks when the market crashes due to everyone else needing to liquidate stonks for food and shelter.

Yes. I started right in the middle of the 2007-08 crash. I made a lot of mistakes in my early days, so this time around.... I'm long commodities - GLD, SLV,, WEAT, UNG, UCO

Gold and silver actually have pretty solid returns. Buy gold at any points since the start of 2020 and you'll be up with little downside. Even if you bought the peaks you'd only experience small downsides. If you bought GLD/SLV and sold covered calls then you'll have yield too. They don't offer high returns but they are safety trades by design. You'd have to be a supreme regard to lose or get wiped out investing in PMs: buying 0DTE, FDs, leveraging 20x margin, shorting, sold naked calls, etcetc.

Make sure your gold is held in PHYS, not GLD. GLD is an unbacked derivative.

Go tell Coinbase then or short them they seem to have a different understanding. Weird also if you look at what with gold happened after Gold ETF became a thing. " The GLD ETF was a major shift in how investors could purchase gold and opened up gold buying to the masses while increasing gold market volumes and overall liquidity. The GLD ETF was a catalyst for a 350% rise over six years." ​ Sorry but the conversation is done at this point, happy new year!

Same reasons someone might buy GLD instead of physical

Mentions:#GLD

People usually either go with an etf like GLD or a miner (Barrick is the largest by market cap iirc) when they want to own a gold-related equity instead of purely physical holdings. Of course with GLD or other ETFs you don’t usually have to deal with shitty management or dilution like most small gold miners routinely deal out. And yes you don’t have to deal with counterparty risk with physical gold holdings, unless you are storing them aboard. I said it now enters the equation because with BTC ETFs now there’s a middle medium between you and the actual BTC. There’s no counterparty risk with cold storage crypto other than Trezor getting hacked or some other security oversight made by the holder.

It’s like would you want to hold physical gold or buy GLD or Barrick? It’s the same concept with the inevitable BTC ETFs. You’re just swapping custodial duties from yourself onto a third party (who you assume will uphold fiduciary standards). Counterparty risk now enters the equation.

Best returns are made by taking a contrarian stance, it can feel very wrong going against the crowd but there can be big rewards. In the s&p500 we are nearing ATH, this with a 5.5 percent interest rate and consumers with higher than ever cc debt. Upside probably minimal from here on out, institutions are positioning more in bonds which is typically a defensive posture. If you have a long term outlook ie 20 year window just keep averaging into the SPY, anyone who holds for 20 years is 100 percent certain to be in the green based on past 80 yr performance. If you want to be defensive just buy tbills for guaranteed 5 percent and change return. Same with btc if you have 4 year time horizon average in. The rest of crypto like altcoins you take a large risk due to volatility. There if halving and etf coming, but this may be a sell the news event. Ask yourself is blackrock and the other institutions paying premium ath prices or near ath prices for the asset? We have been in an uptrend for the last 14 years, zoom out and look at the s&p500 and nasdaq, im not a permabear by any means. But you gotta hedge to the downside here is my opinion. Could be totally wrong and miss out on significant gains. My portfolio consists of some defensive positions here, HSY, GLD, MMM, PFE, DIS Also have some LAC, pretty beaten down sitting at previous ATH support, EWZ ling term brazil etf pays 9 percent dividend, Some TLT and SPY that i avg into long term Also been averaging into SPDN spy inverse 1x etf as we near ATH. If you zoom out on SPY it takes a long time to break ATHs, typically not on first try. If SPY does break ATH look for confirmation on a retest on larger weekly timeframes, if it say goes to 5k, then comes back to 4800 and is able to hold that then the soft landing narrative has been confirmed and its game. Also elections years historically have tended to be green years.

Selling 195 calls on GLD tomorrow and will be short delta until RSI comes in. I would buy puts for the outsized risk/reward but im not sure it is going to sell off fast enough to capture any returns.

I've never been a gold bug but gold stocks look ready for big moves. I like $AGI. This is pure speculation so it might not be answering your exact question. $GLD would probably be more what you are looking for.
