#BullishRippers election special - something for every type of panic trading.
A treasury bond ETF like $GOVT or $ICSH might be a good store of value for the near-term. Treasuries are extremely low risk, low reward. They’re a good place to put your money. A more exciting, albeit slightly more risky, alternative to a treasury bond is corporate bonds. Corporate bonds like $VTC or $VCSH might be a solid store of value. Silver & gold! And no, we’re not talking about the Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Christmas song — we’re talking about $GLD and $SLV . These are two ways to gain exposure to a trust holding precious metals. Commodities are generally solid stores of value during times of uncertainty and turbulence. If commodities or treasuries aren’t doing it for you, one more alternative is to invest some of your money in emerging or international markets. If you haven’t invested in international companies (or an ETF or fund tracking them), then you might be missing out on greater growth. International market funds invest in industrialized countries like the U.K and Canada and have favorable risk profiles (see $IDV or $IDEV for ideas). Another risky alternative is investing in emerging markets like Brazil, South Africa and China (see $SCHE or $EEM ).
