    Why do you have to buy gold as a U.S. dollar hedge? Why can't you just buy foreign bonds for currency diversification? Or am I missing something?

  2. Short-tail, You don't have to buy gold to hedge the US dollar. You can follow the Soros reflexivity model and hedge foregin bonds against the dollar (or any fiat money, for that matter.) Gold and all precious metals are a long-tail investment as they are guaranteed to hold value.

    A great site that posts with greater frequency on gold is zero hedge. Worth a look. http://www.zerohedge.com/article/ultra-bull-argum
