Dear all,

So, I'm hoping some of you highly intelligent, information-addicted and interesting people can provide some advice. I see another big correction coming later this year in the August-October time frame. Some analysts have been predicting between 10 and 15%. I don't think it's too far fetched for a number of reasons. Given that is the case, here is the scenario:
-Inflation will be increasing throughout the year (maybe faster than the market expects)
-Government bonds will continue to go down in price (with the yield increasing), corporate bonds will probably lose business as people go to treasury bonds instead. That makes buying bonds from that period a big of a bad bet.
-Money market funds won't do as well because of inflation, but will provide a quick means of buying the dip
-Oh and this http://www.govexec.com/pay-benefits/201 ... =top-story.

So where does that leave me to place my tiny investment? I'm planning on following our seasonal (to be out of the market between August-October) with my brokerage account to avoid the correction.

Where is a good place to park for those months?

I have read that utilities and REITs are great places to park during higher inflation periods, yet they would be hit by the market correction just the same.

I would be interested to see what others are planning.

Best,

Me
