The information presented was very informative and interesting. The session has provided a basis to educate my clients regarding what to possibly expect in the next coming months regarding their investment portfolios.

I finally learned the definition of inverted yield curve - 10 yr minus 2 yr treasury. Long term investing is not adjusting allocations quickly. Tech and discretionary has not done well in inflationary times. Gold and Oil have been the largest gainers on average.
- Aaron

What to invest in during times of high (like now) inflation -- very helpful.
- Kevin

Real Estate, Gold , Oil and Silver correlate the most with inflation and changes in inflation
- Michael

I knew that commodities, RE and TIPS are good options during inflationary times but have more confidence in them after seeing results of Derek's research.
