How are you guys hedging at the moment?
During these uncertain times.....

Sorry.... Besides just dumping as much as you guys can into the market, are you hedging in any way? How much are you concerned with inflation? (Guess the market is the hedge against that) Societal unrest? The length of potential (re) shutdowns?

My first crazy investing period as an adult and seeing if there’s anything to do except stay the course.

Surely depends on what you actually own, but, assuming you’re in a broadly diversified portfolio...

Hedging is tough, even for the pros to get on a consistent basis over multi-year spans.

I sold all of my positions late Friday. I will re-enter later this week most likely.

Mostly sitting on cash at the moment. Considering picking up a bit more gold and buying a rental home.

Such a non-sexy answer. Also such the right call. I look at my bland, boring portfolio and think to myself "Enos, let's be more adventurous". But then I don't be....

My hedge against inflation is that my portfolio is 100% equity.

My hedge against human stupidity, including my own, is that I put the same amount of money in the same funds every week no matter what.

Both have treated me pretty well thus far.

We're working under the premise of a 2600-3200ish trading range thru the summer. Buying dips and selling rips in that range.

Nearing the top end, we'll pick up an inverse ETF position or two. At the bottom, some levered-long ETFs. Those are very short term positions traded with moves to avoid significant decay.

Other than that, we're focused on long term opportunities in beaten down sectors, e.g. the banks, or dollar cost buys in underwater positions we continue to hold.

I think this quote sums it up well for a lot of us. I'll work and trade and wrangle and do research and buy and sell stocks. And then I look at my holdings in the Fidelity Fund (FFIDX) and how they've grown over the last 10 years and I'm like "hmmmmm.....am I wasting my time?"

Yeah, I just don't have time for that (as I type away on a message board). I think there's plenty to be said for low cost, index funds to hold for 20-30 years and contribute to them regularly.

My domestic holdings are straight up index. My international holdings are very, very broad funds, but with some light managing. I don’t trust managers to pick domestic winners and losers, but I do trust them to say “huh, this country is about to have a civil war and hyperinflation, so maybe we will reduce holdings there...”
