Permanent Portfolio is a self-directed long-term passive investment strategy, introduced in 1981 by Harry Browne and Terry Coxon and simplified into 4 asset class in 1987. It aims to provide consistent market returns and protections in different economic cycles of growth, inflation, recession and deflation. The strategy does not rely on market timing, and requires yearly management and minimal monitoring. This site is to provides educational information for learning about my research and implementation of Singapore version of Permanent Portfolio. Readers can also use the Permanent Portfolio knowledge to diversify their stock heavy portfolio into long term government bonds and gold for better portfolio protections in recession, deflation and inflation.

How I initially learn about stocks, bonds and gold

How do I initially learn about stocks, bonds, gold?

Initially, i was not too savvy about how stocks, bond and gold prices react in various economic environments. Then I researched about these instruments and started reading news in the Bloomberg app on my Android phone every day. I read the sections: Worldwide, Bonds, Commodities, Economy, and U.S. and little by little, from the daily new and analysis on the different markets, I developed a better understanding of how market participants react to stocks, bonds and gold adn cash in various market events and macro economic cycles. I also learnt to ignore market predictors and not place little attention on their predictions.
