The author offers tips on how investors can protect themselves from the impact of the credit crisis that started in the U.S. subprime mortgage market. He suggests going short on all assets that are still being bought on the assumption of continued world growth. He also advises to stay short the dollar against the Euro, yen and gold, as the U.S. Federal Reserve will continue to attempt to bail out the banks by printing money to a greater degree than other central banks. He encourages to go short on sterling, as it is one of the most overvalued currencies.
