Money & Markets: A Golden Strategy to Secure Your Wealth During Stock Market Volatility
Article by Tom Dyson in Money & Markets
If you’ve been reading my recent columns, you’ll know that I’ve been promoting a simple exchange: Sell stocks, buy gold.
Now, keep in mind that we’re not buying gold as an investment.

In other words, we are using gold primarily as money — a safe haven — and not as a speculation on higher gold prices.
This is why I’ve put the bulk of my money into physical gold. It’s a way to keep us safe while the investment markets correct.
the primary trend in the stock market has been DOWN since October 2018, when it peaked at around 22. It’s currently around 14. And it’s on its way back down to below 5.
