Hedging your portfolio is like wearing your seat belt or engaging other safety features in your car, according to Steven Van Metre, who notes that common thread here is “survival.” If you can come out the other side of a bear market or an automobile accident OK, you’ve won. Surviving means the opportunity to buy solid assets at discounted prices. And Van Metre, the founder and president of Van Metre Financial, believes game-changing opportunities are being made right now, as investors are forced to sell to raise cash. In conversation with Harry Melandri, advisor at MI2 Partners, Van Metre singles out the bond market for particular interest right now, with recession on the horizon. He and Melandri also talk about what we should expect as the Federal Reserve pursues its monetary tightening program, including the implications of stagflation and deflation. Recorded on June 7, 2022.
