Sort of new to investing. Well actually I've been reading MF for about 2 years now and am feeling a little Foolish. I've got a diverse portfolio now but I still have cash reserves that could be earning more for me. I've got an option to reinvest reserves into my current equities or go for something else. Or I could just leave it in cash.

I've been reading quite a bit about hedging against inflation and possibly even the fallen dollar. I'm sure that I'm completely late to the party as surely this is what everyone else was thinking months or even a year ago.

Thats my issue, I'm always late to the party. Anyways, I don't know the first thing about hedging against inflation. But it seems like the way things are going it might be a very good strategy. Rates have to go up eventually and who knows what's going to happen with the dollar.

Does anyone know the best way to diversify into gold? What do most people do when they want to get into gold?

Anyone use dollar etf's like UDN that track with the down dollar?

What about Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities?

Any advise you Fool's have out there would be great. Am I wasting my time going in this direction or is there some merit to this line of thinking?

If I posted in the wrong area, please forgive..
