The C6 Real Misery Index 3 Bucket Plan Investment Strategy

THE C6 REAL MISERY INDEX: YOUR FINANCIAL CONSULTANT PROVIDING SOUND INVESTMENT ADVICE


The 3 Bucket Plan is designed to be an all-weather investment framework to help individuals with asset allocation and risk management.


The primary advantage of the C6 Real Misery Index is that it is designed to capture the "misery" of bursting credit bubbles in a stag-deflationary environment (slow economic growth and credit-driven asset bubbles in one or more markets). However, it still works in economies experiencing inflation or stagflation as well. The higher the index, the more pressure on Fed to ease monetary policy and on politicians to adopt economic stimulus measures. Also, a higher index is likely to indicate higher frustration and anger among the public at large.

The C6 Real Misery Index was designed to be easy to understand and use by the average investor. It is not an academic study and it was not designed for professional economists (though they are welcome to use it).
