This would be a great addition for any one following Ray Dalio’s all-weather fund strategy.

30% Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF VTI
40% iShares 20+ Year Treasury ETF TLT
15% iShares 7-10 Year Treasury ETF IEF
7.50% SPDR Gold Shares ETF GLD
7.50% PowerShares DB Commodity Index Tracking Fund DBC

Indeed. That was my intention.

In case you are interested, my approach to emulate the all-weather portfolio, using Freetrade’s available ETFs is:
30% £VUSA
55% £IBTM
15% £SGLN

So far it’s doing well. Got 6% net return in 25 days.

interesting, glad to hear you’ve getting good results!

What do you think of buying Glencore - £GLEN to give exposure to commodities?

I am not sure it would give me the right diversification for commodities, it would also include company risk. Gold is the next best thing, and so far it’s working well.
