News hound that likes to dabble in the going ons. Simply a, once, hospitality manager that has been following the markets since a teen. I simply take it as it comes and trade it, started with stocks, all about the forex now. The about me, short, sweet and unwinded, unlike my comments.

Born 1940. . Forty + years of finance: Investment, leadership and administration. Owned/trained race horses, show horses ( world champions ) and cattle ranching. Now trade for own account. Consider myself a bottom-line eclectic trader/investor. Mantra: If it has high net margin results and sustainable volume and outstanding and positive profit management then I look; at my age everything is near-term. You always have to be looking 360 degrees. Trouble means "red-flag". Think reasons ------ not excuses. Four years and out for any leader if success is not of magnatude, No mold allowed to accrue! No if ands, or buts ... for any reason. Bad predecessor? Tuff!!! We hear that crap daily from the white house. Turn things around or goodby, and as they use to say so politically incorrect in my day "don't let the door hit you on the a... on your way ------- out!
If USD collapses, and "hyperinflation" results, and you live in the USA, then you better have your guns, ammo and canned food products ready to go since the basic fabric of society in the USA will come to a quick halt. Besides those already out of biz., lots more will be once "hyperinflation" takes over. Imagine $5,000 for a loaf of bread. HA! That's not going to lead to riots! (sarcasm)
A lot of folks toss around "hyperinflation" without thinking about what they are trying to say, which is usually "extended period of high inflation." Hyperinflation is what you had in the Weimer Republic or Zimbabwe - costs doubling every few hours for months and years on end.
If you still believe that USD is headed for "hyperinflation" then unless you have gold in your basement vault, you will be SOL since the file or folder you have on a computer or printout will only be worth the paper or hard drive it's written on. As mentioned earlier, you will want guns, ammo, MREs, etc. because the basic fabric of American society will collapse and mass rioting will occur.
Be in gold, as in the gold in your basement vault if you think USD is collapsing to hyperinflation anytime soon.
I say calm down and realize that the US government will not allow that to happen. Ever. Neverever.
Any decline in USD will be mild and, if not, will be violently "fixed" by the US government.
