July 2015 portfolio positions

As of July 1st, the Chicken Little Portfolio remains ready for a deflationary depression. The only substantial risk in the portfolio is the 30% position in Long-Term US Treasury bonds.


There was one change to the portfolio in the last month: flipping from a tiny long position in non-US stocks to a even tinier short position in non-US stocks.
