Gold hits new highs-inflation threatens

Following my last post, here is more evidence that inflation is a real risk. My advice to those of you who are contemplating getting into the property market, you  should start to take  some serious- but prudent steps in that direction. If we do have an “inflation bomb” it will be likely to be fast and furious- much like the GFC which took everyone by surprise.   If you are enjoying a low interest rate on any mortgages, this may be the time to fix the rates long term. In other words- be prepared.
