Here's How Much Cash You Should Hold Right Now

Cash isn't the most exciting or dramatic asset you can hold, but, aside from gold itself, there's not much that's more vital or versatile – especially right now.

Here's why…

First, if you have cash, you can buy those distressed assets that have to be sold by overleveraged owners when they're forced to sell. In this way, when things go wrong, you're a "liquidity provider," much like Warren Buffett who famously made some of the best, most favorable deals of his entire life in the crisis years of 2008 and 2009. Buffett pulled off this coup by being flush with cash when hardly anyone else was.

Cash also tends to hold its own against assets that are inflated by high levels of debt, like real estate and stocks are right now. It tends to depreciate against gold, but it will do much better than overpriced financial assets like stocks when the dam breaks.

And of course, if things finally get so bad that even CNBC or Barron's admit as much, you can use cash to buy items essential to survival, like food, water, and a complete set of "The X-Files" Blu-ray discs. 

So I want to show you an unbeatable cash strategy right now. You'll see how much cash to hold at any one time, and just as important, how to hold it; there's more to "cash" than pictures of dead presidents.

But in order to get all the advantages that a right-sized cash position offers, you have to understand why the dollar is strong and getting stronger...

Why This Rally Reminds Me of 2008

It seemed for a minute that reality would bring some semblance of market-pricing to U.S. and global markets, because it's much needed.

But then central banks stepped in… again. I knew they would.

No, I'm not surprised that, all around the world, central banks continue to manipulate market-moving pawns across a chess board. And by pawns I don't mean economies, I mean equity market prices for banks, bank debt, and sovereign debt.

What is surprising is how blatant central bankers are becoming about the manipulation.

Under these conditions, the market – let's call it the "Extend and Pretend Market" – has some big opportunities and some pitfalls for investors.

So let's have a look at what's in store...
