Deflation in property, real estate, bonds

The market will probably not make new highs in US and some emerging markets in Asia. I don’t see the markets as especially attractive. Will they fall strongly? I don’t know but I wouldn’t disregard the possibility of them falling 20%. It’s not a lot 20%.

We could also see a deflation in property or in bonds as the yields are so low and the prices therefore so high.

Gold is a safe investment for worst case scenario


At an event hosted by Evli Bank - Helsinki, Marc Faber spoke favorably about gold.
In the worst case scenario, in the systemic failure that I expect, Gold would still have some value.
When “the system goes down and only plastic credit cards are left, maybe then people will realize and go back to some gold-based system or such.

He added that he was so hyper bearish of your outlook and added, "Sometimes I’m so concerned about the world I want to jump out of the window.”

Marc Faber at 2013 Skagen Conference

At the recent 2013 Skagen conference in London Marc Faber reiterated his views that this year is likely to be a more difficult environment than 2012. Faber urged caution over China's growth outlook.

On his overall investment outlook he says ‘I’d be reluctant to be heavily short anything right now. For an investor, cash is not desirable but I would say that for the next 3 months it may make sense,’

Japan and Chinese stocks are good buys

We could see gains in equities in Japan and China as they under-performed last few years.
However there is potential for social unrest in countries such as Egypt and Ethiopia.

Gold could still weaken a bit


On the current Gold weakness, "I don't think gold will go up right away, and we maybe have a correction of 10 percent or so on the downside," "But I see that governments will print money … so I want to have gold as an insurance policy."

Based on his recent market commentary newsletter, Faber puts a price range on his gold call:
"... perhaps down to between $1550 and $1600 … I intend to increase my gold position on any further weakness although I am concerned that U.S. dollar strength could be a headwind for a strong gold rally."

Markets look slightly bearish right now

In his latest commentary Marc Faber suggests that the market looks slightly bearish but thinks that the markets could still rally easily because of high cash levels.

"I am mindful that corporations and wealthy individuals are cash rich and since there are very few promising investment opportunities aside from equities, they might one day shift their considerable liquid assets into stocks."

Hold a diversified portfolio of assets

If we hold a diversified portfolio of different assets - say properties, equities, bonds, precious metals, and cash - we can reduce the overall volatility of the portfolio somewhat.
