It has been a bloody few years for investors. First, the stock market, which had been tooling along like a roadster down the Autobahn on a sunny day, hit the brick wall that was the global credit crisis. Bloodied and broken, investors dragged themselves from that wreck, only to be flattened by the sixteen-ton semi of the sovereign debt crisis. Then, just when it seemed as if things couldn't get any worse, along comes the fifty-megaton blast of the 2011 bond bear market.
It is only a matter of time before the bond bubble bursts. All the warning signs are there. What are they and how can you recognize them as the drama unfolds? What can you do to shelter your portfolio against this next financial disaster?
