i hold 5% in gold , 5% bitcoin , 5% commodities and 5% cash flying fighter cover as opposed to the big position in gold . i dont feel gold alone is diversified enough anymore with all the alternatives.
holy shit MJ has more hodl BTC than I do.
i do hold a lot dollar wise but as a piece of the total it is 5% .

my little hedge portion of gld-dbc-gbtc and fdlxx ride shotgun for all investable assets .so 20% in total .

actually it isnt a mix i though of , it is paul tudor jones

Portfolio Visualizer has a 5 year annual return of +50% with a rebalance each year. Does the 20% discount bother you on GBTC. Do you
think it will close or get deeper with the new ETF's coming. I do think the 2% or so expense ratio will for sure need to be reduced.

Gold will give up 5% on just talk of being hawkish. Think of an actual rate increase of a 1/16 of a point. Revist the 1980's if you doubt.

I got 25%, but the world does not believe in Gold as a hedge for anything!

That's because factually it isn't. The best we can say is it is non-correlated with anything which is not a bad characteristic for a portfolio asset.

Hard to take it to the bank in 1980 when it hit $850. Nice for a few months but only pain for the next 40 years vs other assets.

We have been in a bond bull market over that period as rates dropped from 15% down to essentially zero.

As the saying goes, trends will remain until they stop.

No, it did a really nice job/had a good run 2002-2012.

Finally, from 1/1/20 until now, gold beats every major US stock measurement (sharpe, CAGR, Max DD). That's a long time and at least 50% of the average investor's investing life span. However, if you split the time period in half the story is 180 between each period.

As mentioned, nice wind in the sails or an anchor.

Even if a gold bull market begins today? :)

But, good that you've got your allocation to something that makes you comfortable.

I have already doubled my $ in Gold and it’s time ring the register. I’m OK with any gains from here as I still hold 5%. Godspeed.

i find the diversity of gold , bitcoin and a commodities etf a far better fit than 100% gold today..staying 100% gold today reminds me of those who fight the last war …..

i would think if harry could have seen in to the future the portfolio would have evolved over time.

the reality is nothing in life is permanent

Right now BTC is trading above its fair value and the speculative premium (still) outweighs its fundamental risk characteristics but if you had a way to adjust for the speculation then I suspect it does react appropriately. There's just no way to separately it out cleanly and in a way that is objective.

The trick is to have your own model for when BTC is over or undervalued, and then only buy it as a gold replacement when it is undervalued. There's no perfect solution and one's own model is probably not right and there is going to be an aspect of market timing whenever one introduces a new asset into a portfolio.
