Una delle ragioni alla base della buona performance storica dell'asset allocation secondo mio cuggino potrebbe venire dalla relativa anticorrelazione dell'oro con i rendimenti azionari, almeno quando valutata su scale di tempo medio-lunghe (dai 3 ai 6 anni). Come osserva Buttonwood nel suo blog David Ranson di Wainwright Economics has looked at the relationship between gold and stockmarkets since 1824. He divides the data into 37 five-year periods. A rise in gold is perceived by Mr Ranson as a sign of inflation which was pretty unarguable during the gold standard era. One might think that stocks, thanks to their links with the real economy, would do well in inflationary times. But that is not what the data show.
