My Top 6 Investments & Why

Everyone is different and comes from different backgrounds, upbringing and circumstances and I understand not everyone has the same capacity, desire or willingness to invest.  I am far from an expert and I am not an investment adviser however I do have some base knowledge on what works for me and what I prefer.

Think for yourself and do the ground work research that best suits your circumstances.

This is a personal perspective and not a guide.

Be diligent.

I have decided to share what I feel are my best investments for 2107 and beyond with the objective of debt free investing outside of hoarding cash and buying properties as the mainstream tells us too.

Many people don’t have a lot of liquid assets or expendable cash and I find that the world of investment is also somewhat a taboo subject. If you are not a financial planner you are not encouraged to discuss your preferences in investment which is a reasonable expectation especially when you are an authority that people trust and people can lose money very easily if making the wrong decisions.

Sometimes the best approach is to say nothing and let people workout their own choice.

I find that patience, gut instinct and reserach is integral in all circumstances.

Sometimes you should just jump.

Having a longer term outlook can be more sustainable and generally brings a greater more stable result.

What are short terms v’s medium terms v’s long terms?

What are hedges and what can you put towards your retirement?

To start, the financial markets are clearly rigged and it is clear to get in the property market you need a large lump sum deposit and be willing to go into substantial debt with a banking financial institution.

Yes, you can make money in these areas however it can be a grey area that does lock many ‘normal’ people down into a world of obligation, debt and stress.

A world of unhappiness.

I am investing in physical assets like precious metals although the industry is suppressed by paper shorts and derivatives.

My faith in cryptocurrencies has also now been developed.

I recently put my superannuation into a SMSF and it feels good to be in control in these testing times.

I will buy a property in the future once I have enough currency to alleviate any debt.

I don’t believe in debt.

Satan feeds off debt.

Everyone would like a beach house and that is a future goal for me.  In the mean time, I am investing in the below and keeping my life simple.

Modestly and diligently.

Always start small and do what is right for you.

My Top 6 Investments 2017

  1. Invest In Yourself
  2. Gold
  3. Silver
  4. Bitcoin
  5. Monero
  6. Steem

Property if you can enter the market is great however is the debt worth it?  Can you leverage it and capitalise on the investment?

If not, there are better options for now.

Save, save and save some more.

Grow your own food and live sustainably.

Invest In Yourself

The person most likely to know what you want to do in life and what you are good at is YOU. You have skills. Everyone does. It is just a matter of confidence and truly aligning with your values and passions and taking on a level of risk to start something.

A new career, a new job, a new business, a new craft, a new education course, or a new skill.

Invest in yourself to be better. Learn and grow. Have a go. Do what makes you smile.

I have my own business so I consider that an investment and I am grateful. I have invested in myself and my skills in business.  I have business stock assets and a business that is generating a modest level of cashflow so this is the first investment.

I invested in myself to ensure I could do what I loved.

I am focusing on this to ensure I have a solid base and I am always looking to improve.

You too can seek to invest in yourself this year.

Why wait?

Go do something new and do it well.

Gold

Gold is real money. Gold is real. Gold is physical. Gold holds energy of economics. Gold is a bench mark. Gold is a hedge against losses on the stock market and due to the inflation and deflation of fiat currencies.

Those who own the gold, rule the world.

How much should you own?  Relative to your capacity.  I prefer investment bullion or coins as they are 99.9%.

Seek to stack physical on an ongoing basis to me makes more sense than other approaches and allows you to make modest purchases and build.

Suggested Terms – Hedge % / Long Term Hold % / Retirement %

Silver

Silver is real money.  Silver is real.  Silver is also physical. Silver is the most conductive element we have. Silver is the metal that represents the universe with an atomic mass of 108 = 9. Silvers market price is suppressed heavily and underpriced due to its demand. It is a strategic metal.  It will exponential in price during the next recession/depression which is very near.

How much should you own?  Relative to your capacity. Start small and stack. I prefer investment bullion or coins as they are 99.9%.

I have an 80/20 Silver V Gold ratio and I feel silver will just be a matter of time.

Seek to stack physical on an ongoing basis to me makes more sense than other approaches and allows you to make modest purchases and build.

Suggested Terms – Medium Term % / Hedge % / Long Term Hold % / Retirement %

Bitcoin

The gold of cryptocurrencies. It will be hard to know it off the pedestal due to its current demand, faith and set infrastructure in trading markets.  It is not even mainstream yet and has hit over 1000US. What happens in 5 years time?  I think Bitcoin will have a massive ongoing climb until it gets closer to its 21 million coin cap.

How much should you own?  Relative to your capacity.  Use it as liquid however hold a base amount you are comfortable with.  I need 1 % of bitcoin for daily life and other trading so it pay to have a % spilt of investment that you can work with to do what you want.

Bitcoin is not as private as some people think so I feel those with a lot of money may not invest as heavily and will seek more private and secure cryptos such as Monero.

Suggested Terms – Liquid % / Medium Term % / Hedge % / Long Term Hold % / Retirement %

Monero 

The next big crypto? It is secure and holds information as a whole more privately so those with larger investments will feel more inclined to invest. Monero is going through a phase of faith and growth and very much may really take off once it reaches a critical mass of trust, faith, understanding and public awareness.

Monero may go through some significant ups and downs just as Bitcoin did in the short to medium term as the volume increases and prices can fluctuate significantly as investors move their money around and fight levels of speculation.

So be aware that crypto currencies can and do come at a risk based on your objective and perspective.

How much should you own?  Relative to your capacity.

Suggested Terms – Liquid % / Medium Term % / Hedge % / Long Term Hold % / Retirement %

Steem 

This crypto is unique and holds some very unique attributes which in the world of information, community and social sharing, I feel will become a market leader in 3 to 5 years once it becomes a more mainstream option. Steemit.com is a game changer and with have the other social networks watching closely. The ability to mine and generate coins from blogging and sharing is very attractive and the sooner you get in to build your profile and build your Steem Power the better. I have just started my journey there and I love it.

Steem, Steem Power and Steem Dollars are all worth looking into and the security of 3 day transaction in the Steem savings is hard to ignore.

To be able to make money and to help others make money too is an incredible feature and considering the current price of Steem, I say get in now and start building your profile and just be yourself.

Steem Power for me is the best option as I am writing and blogging on the site and it is a long term investment in my eyes.

If there are some short to medium gains to be had I will take those however I will not be monitoring the price nor seeking to take any liquid stake.

Talk to me about that in 2 to 5 years time.

How much should you own?  Relative to your capacity.

Suggested Terms – Liquid % / Medium Term % / Hedge % / Long Term Hold % / Retirement %

Summary

Please remember, I am not a financial adviser. I am just sharing my perspective as a fellow human being. I enjoy watching, reading and discussing the financial markets and various investments.

The world is changing rapidly and I feel 2017 is the year the markets will start to tumble officially as we all know they have already started and have been propped up since 2008.  The housing bubble as a whole and I know in Australia in particular has to give soon. They can’t prop it up forever and the clean out of wealth for the middle to lower class is not very far away.

That is just how the big boys play the game.

What are you going to do to protect your future?

I would be interested to hear what people think is a good investment, present new ideas and your feedback and input is appreciated.
