Optional Inflation Hedges (OIH) is an optional add-on strategy. It caters to investors who are concerned about the potential for rising inflation. OIH uses three funds in equal measure, each focused on an industry segment expected to hold up well in such an environment: gold, real estate, and energy. Because OIH is a higher-risk/higher-volatility strategy than SMI’s core portfolio strategies, it is designed for use with no more than 20% of your stock allocation.
