Alternatives to Investing in US Stocks

Asset Managers Recommend Bitcoin to Hedge Against US Stock Market RisksWall Street saw the biggest sell-off in more than eight months on Wednesday. The market’s worst day of the year was largely due to uncertainty surrounding U.S. President Donald Trump. According to Reuters, reports that he “had tried to intervene in an investigation of alleged Russian meddling in last year’s U.S. presidential election, and that his aides had numerous undisclosed contacts with Russian officials, kept markets concerned over his ability to implement his economic agenda.”

Although U.S. stocks mostly rebounded on Thursday, “investors may be looking for new bets in a market with growing uncertainty,” CNBC reports, adding that:

Looking to international markets and finding refuge in bitcoin are two suggestions strategists are making.

Mark Tepper, President of Strategic Wealth Partners, warns against further U.S. market risks, telling CNBC that “it’s pretty obvious that political risk is shifting toward the U.S.” While acknowledging that U.S. markets have outperformed international markets over years, he now sees the trend reversing. While most investors are still overweight U.S. stocks, he noted that “global growth is so much stronger than U.S. growth.”

Hedge with Bitcoin

Asset Managers Recommend Bitcoin to Hedge Against US Stock Market RisksBoris Schlossberg, Managing Director of foreign exchange (FX) Strategy at BK Asset Management, believes bitcoin is a good hedge going forward. In an interview with CNBC on Wednesday, he said the digital currency is the “new gold.” He then pointed out the similarities between bitcoin and precious metal which is often considered a safe haven asset.

He said bitcoin is a suitable investment for investors wanting to protect their portfolios against further political risks, which he believes there may very well be. Bitcoin has had a 97 percent rally this year at press time, but he noted that its price is holding at very steady highs.

He further detailed when there is a big move in any type of investment instrument, “generally you’re going to have some continuation,” adding that:

It’s clearly signaling more demand [for bitcoin]. So I like that as a hedge play going forward

Schlossberg echoes Bobby Lee’s sentiment made in January in a different interview with CNBC. The CEO of the Chinese bitcoin exchange Btcc said, “when the existing money system has problems, people turn to bitcoin sort of like people used to go to gold in the old days.”

  6. I do accept as true with all of the ideas you’ve introduced
    in your post. They are really convincing and will definitely work.

    Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for starters. Could you please prolong them a little from next time?
    Thanks for the post.

  7. For me, it only made me even more determined and rebellious, which iss not the best thing for any family and cause disruptions,
    arguments, fall-outs, groundings aand cycles of family battles etc.

    Notably, the Windows 7 taskbar is much improved over previous versions of
    Windows such aas XP or Vista. Using the advanced
    settings means your computer has to use up more processing power, thus,
    giving it a little room for the game to run as smoothly as it needs to.

  12. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is
    needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% certain.

    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

  13. You actually make it seem really easy with your presentation however I find this
    matter to be actually something that I think I might never understand.

    dangle of it!
