This is a very dangerous environment and investors must be prepared with a “tactical” investment approach. Different economic cycles require different investment strategies. Stocks do well during inflation periods but get hammered by deflation. Bonds do well with deflation but get crushed by inflation. And of course, during a crisis of confidence, everything gets killed.
In addition and most importantly, there will be a time in the near future when you will need to be in cash, so you must have an exit strategy.
