With the exception of truly immediate cash needs (you know actual dollar bills hidden under your mattress for quick access), cash is an evil wasting asset and your goal should be to have none of it or the absolute minimum possible.
You leave a lot on the table if you don't and normally you are in fact losing somewhere between 2-3% annually for anything sitting around doing nothing. 10 years down the road, you got 75%ish of what you had in real terms.
But I've held gold for ~ten years! O0 I know- it doesn't work that way, which is why I continue to hold all four assets, but...I feel more positive about cash after reading the Portfolio Charts piece on it. It didn't change how much I hold. I just feel better now about what I do hold.
Wishing you a good Good Friday

Gold is useless for the most part (not counting jewelry) but it’s pretty hard to argue against its usefulness in a diversified portfolio.
