Investors need to prudently bet some capital of the potentially fastest horses in the coming monetary inflation race to debase. Highlighted in his letter are asset classes such as financials, gold, bitcoin, bonds, commodities, long short fiat currency trades, and top Nasdaq tech stocks.
Described is how after this current deflationary wave hits, responding price inflation may eventually come about later in the 2020s. This is a big motivation as for looking for the best investment horses so to speak under such a scenario.
Tudor Investments apparently believes that the fastest horse in the coming years may be bitcoin, yet too in this letter they also illustrate the potential for the US dollar gold price to more than triple in value too. Gold did such a feat in only one year of time (Jan 1979-1980) and the conditions are already again presently currency created (high relative fiat M1 supplies).
With gold bullion, today one has limited loss potential with solid upside precedent. In terms of bitcoin, the upside potential is perhaps today even greater than gold. Yet too one should consider the potential valueless downside of still a somewhat new technology and asset class, and position bet sizes accordingly.
Downside considerations first and foremost. Risk only what you are willing to lose on bitcoin. Risk with gold bullion that capital you refuse to lose outright.
