Legendary Investor Mark Mobius Endorses the 10% Golden Rule

Historical Benefits of the 10% Golden Rule

I second Mobius’s call for a 10% allocation in gold, something I’ve recommended for years now. I call it the 10% Golden Rule.

Inflation Among the Economic Risks

To Mobius’s point about currency debasement, we’re already seeing deterioration in the dollar’s purchasing power due to overheated inflation. In July, consumer prices rose 5.4% compared to last year, the second straight month of inflation over 5%.

These Gold Stocks Have Been Highly Profitable

The 10% Golden Rule is more than just physical bullion. I’ve always recommended that about half of that should be gold mining stocks, mutual funds and/or ETFs.
