Two Ways to Hedge Against Inflation (Hint: Neither Are Gold Plays)

After the newest stimulus package, inflation has become a clear and critical risk to the economy, causing everyone to ask about a good market hedge right now.

And many are turning to the most famous safe-haven asset: gold.

But that’s not what investors or traders should be asking. It’s this:

What’s the best hedge for gold in an inflationary market?”

You heard me right. Gold has lost its glimmer.

Gold prices are falling into a bear market pattern we haven’t seen since 1979. This down period lasted until 2000, when gold was in constant decline, dropping from $1,500 down to $390.

Its other bear market was from 1934 to 1970, dropping from $700 to $250 levels.

And while the S&P 500 has rallied 5% year-to-date, SPDR Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) shares have lost 9% in the same time period.

Signs of inflation are presenting themselves more strongly than they have in recent years. Interest rates’ sudden jump to 1.6% has inflation bulls rattling the market’s nerves, and right now it’s critical that you prepare your wealth for what might unfold.

So, let’s take a look into the past.

Two Bitcoin Stocks Set to Rally Into the End of the Month

The second half of March kicks off a seasonally strong period that should favor bullish investors.

Historically, the S&P 500 makes twice as much profit during these few weeks than it does at any other time.

If history repeats itself, and the market once again follows this seasonal trend, we can use this pattern to position ourselves for predictable profits.

The technical pictures confirm that the markets are ready to rally.

We’ve seen a number of the major indices such as the S&P 500, Nasdaq Composite, and Russell 2000 pass their respective technical support tests.

And I’ve identified two stocks that you’ll want to buy immediately on any pullback.

What’s interesting is that both of these stocks are related to Bitcoin (BTC).

All that’s needed for them to rally is a fundamental catalyst.

Fortunately, that catalyst is already on its way, and it comes in two forms: earnings reports and Ten Year interest rates.

Here’s everything you need to know to get these seasonal profits…
