Going all in on gold and silver is as dumb as not having any gold or silver at all.

Amazing to watch the comments saying "Dalio was wrong" based on the past 6 years, proving that you DID NOT listen to what he was saying.
Did you listen to the part about "during a monetary crisis"?

We havent had that in the past 5 years, you geniuses. If that happens and gold still falls then you can say "Dalio was wrong". Of course this isnt likely to happen.

I think he makes perfect sense. If we have a really (really) serious collapse up ahead having gold coins could help you get you through it. At worst it's a decent place to store wealth. I think the best way to own it is in 1 oz 1/2 oz and 1/10 oz coins.

why do all central banks own gold reserves?

Gold is garbage.. had a gold ring once.... i threw it away

Gold declining for 6 years without any cashflow and he still keep saying this. It's easy to be a smart guy who is admired. Just say there will be a crash sometime next 20 years and you gonna be a hero. Not really differed from all those guys on the financial field.

Ray Dalio was so wrong that makes me cringe. Gold was almost $1,800 and today September 2018 is $1,200. Better become a better investor Ray if you want to keep your wealth, or hire me, because I'd be a way better manager of your fortune, at least not so dumb. 😵😂😎
Or maybe he's so clever to decieve investors in bad purchases in orther to take the other side of the trade. 🤔😅👏🙊

Gold is old commodity since human know metals . In every religion , Gold & silver coins is an aset . Arab use dinar dirham coins for trade . The problem in this era is fiat money , inflation & usury interest .

he just said gold is bad in long term, he also mentioned gold is like cash but a little bit better and warren buffet is a guy who invest for long term so he would not like gold in his portfolio

Gold is just a kind of belief, if u studied from history of money. Lets make it that way, you buy gold for the sake of selling it at higher price, in exchanging back of fiat currency. If you treat gold as value, then bitcoin can replace gold. That was according to past, human holds on to the beliefs that government tends to fail, and fiat currency goes into nothing, and that is the time to use gold.

But, do you think fiat currency can fail? The whole monetary system has been established for so long, human will not go back into using gold, if so, human will go back to system barter. Doesnt make sense right?

After all, those countries with the worse currency value use USD, they dont use gold for transactions.

He wasn’t wrong on the political stuff

Dalio knows history. Buffett will be proven wrong on this. Buffett is also a cheerleader for the US and Dalio is more honest.

It’s now 2018 June. Gold went from about $1,500+ in 2012 when this video was uploaded to less than $1,300 now. On the other hand, S&P500 went from 1300+ to 2700+ in the same period. Not sure about you, I’d very much prefer to be in Buffett’s camp.
If you had invested $100,000 with Buffet when he first took over Berkshire Hathaway in 1964 averaging 19.56% it would be worth $1,547,529,525. Investing in gold in 1964 at $284 would have given you a compound return of 2.88% which would turn $100,000 into just $463,309. Lower than inflation and you would have lost money. BUFFETT WAS NOT WRONG!

A lot of misunderstanding here, take the economist side of Dalio and business sense of Buffet- Berkshire has so much idle cash, or float, while Dalios massive stash of equity has increased its GLD position. Gold serves very useful as a weighted stabilizer, and is optimal for either short/long positions. Kevin O'Leary utilizes this strategy with gold in his holdings too and has been for years. At a weighted avg, buy when it's weak, sell and trim off when its high but maintain a consistent level and enjoy the spread inbetween. And again, an effective inflation hedge.
