Nowadays, it might be difficult to discover safe-havens.
The Fed’s relentless rate rises have caused stocks to crash, Bitcoin to stagnate, and even the formerly hot market for real estate appears to be cooling off. Robert Kiyosaki, the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, thinks that now could be the best moment to “become wealthy” despite the temptation to hide out in money. During the Great Recession, Kiyosaki explained in a tweet how he was able to make a fortune by defying the norm.
2008 was an excellent year for wealth accumulation. All items were discounted bought real estate at a discount using millions of borrowed dollars,” he says. The author has advocated for a significant crash. Additionally, the author has advocated for a significant crash. “In 2013, I wrote Rich Dad’s Prophecy, which predicted an even worse fall. THE CRASH HAS ARRIVED. Millions will be eliminated.
Kiyosaki has long promoted buying precious metals as an investment. For millennia, silver and gold have assisted investors in protecting their capital. Unlike fiat money, they cannot be created out of thin air, and global economic events have no bearing on their value. This time, though, Kiyosaki is choosing one over another, and the reason for his preference is the gold-to-silver ratio, which is just the quantity of silver ounces needed to purchase one ounce of gold.
“FYI, the gold-silver ratio is the oldest monitored rate in history: in the twentieth century, the gold-silver ratio was 47:1… 47 ounces silver Equals 1 oz gold “Today, 85:1,” he tweeted last month. In other words, the present gold-to-silver ratio implies that historically speaking, gold (and silver) is both comparatively costly (and affordable). Silver is also preferred by Kiyosaki due to its industrial purpose.
Silver is a valuable industrial metal. Unlike gold.
In addition to being a vital part of many cars’ electrical control systems, grey metal is extensively employed in the manufacture of solar panels. Silver is a particularly intriguing financial asset for investors because of the industrial demand and the hedging capabilities. Many silver miners are prepared for an increase in the price of silver. First Majestic Silver (AG), Pan American Silver (PAAS), and Wheaton Precious Metals (WPM) are a few businesses that might serve as excellent places to start your investigation.
However, Kiyosaki advises taking a simpler route and just purchasing the metal immediately away. He claims, “I do not handle paper gold or silver ETFs.” “Anyone may purchase a silver coin for $25.” So perhaps it’s time to stop by the bullion store down the street. Of course, Kiyosaki doesn’t precisely assert that silver is impervious to the current market turbulence. “All markets are about to implode,” he tweeted last week: “Stocks, Real Estate, Gold, Silver, Bitcoin.”
However, the power of one asset is currently well-known_ oil.
Because you will be paying more for petrol as a result of increasing oil prices, it may not be advantageous for your pocketbook.Kiyosaki’s Tweet
“Middle class wiped away by increasing oil inflation”, Robert said in his recent tweet. Of course, having investments that have access to the energy industry will make your portfolio seem better in 2022 than those that do not. Even if the crude oil price declined in June and July, the year-to-date increase is still 34%. Strong oil prices help oil producers, as you might anticipate. Investors have reaped impressive profits so far this year from companies like ConocoPhillips (50%), Exxon Mobil (51%), and Chevron (35%).
However, commodity investment is a particularly risky activity.
