While the recent ongoing tensions between Russia and Ukraine raise the risks of a protracted conflict within Ukraine, the war also creates concerns about the potential impact on financial markets and the global economy. Besides increasing the likelihood of market volatility, the invasion is likely to add to inflationary pressures by disrupting exports of oil, natural gas, and wheat from Russia and Ukraine and raising prices.
The impacts of the conflict are likely to vary depending on geography. While that injects some uncertainty into the global outlook, the US economy appears relatively insulated from the war. For individual investors and consumers in the US, the effects will most likely include additional inflationary pressures due to higher energy prices. These also led to recent stock market volatility, reflecting various investor concerns and uncertainty.
When it comes to the planning of your investment portfolio, inflation can affect your choices in the long run as money depreciates over the years. By diversifying your portfolio into Gold and Silver will help mitigate your overall portfolio risk. It is worth noting that over the years, Gold had outperformed the rate of inflation. If you hold some Gold in your portfolio, your risk will be reduced by a considerable margin. Similarly for Silver, they can perform the same function as Gold as they are positively correlated.
