A standard part of the theory of any investment portfolio is that you should have something within it that reacts counter-cyclically to inflation. This almost always means holding some commodities, most especially some of the precious metals.
Monex Deposit Company can guide you through the details of this somewhat arcane world but do understand that there can be problems. Platinum and palladium, while precious metals (and others such as rhodium and osmium can be even more difficult) generally have their prices driven by industrial demand more than anything else. So if you can predict the demand for car catalytic convertors (where most of them a re used) then you can predict the market. If not, then you can't.
However, gold is generally driven by the investment demand and even more so for coins like the American Eagle. So, it's worth talking to Monex about how to buy gold coin as it can be an extremely useful hedge against inflation in your portfolio.
