Gold, Equities, and the US Dollar...

Last week, Gold (GLD) and US denominated cash (UUP) underperformed US equities meaningfully. At the margin, this augured profitably for us, as we spent the better part of the back half of October deploying our 96% Cash position into global equities.

When "Heli-Ben" drops cash from the heavens, and interest rates fall to sub zero (on a real basis), the last thing that is going to earn you a return is cash. This chart shows last week’s relative performance of these 3 asset classes. Math and Macro don't lie. People do.
