22% 2MCL (2x FT250 UK midcaps (UK has a tendency to have above average dividend yield (Value) and our midcaps market cap sizes are comparable to US small caps ... so I see FT250 as being a form of Small Cap Value type holding). 33% BRK-B, 44% Gold. That lot approximates to a third each in SCV/BRK/Gold and spans GBP, US$ and global currency i.e. I'm tending towards neutrality this year (US$ could swing either way, possibly a sizable move, so could be stocks up/gold down or gold up/stocks down. As could GBP be volatile (Pound up, SCV down or vice-versa)).

Buy/hold for the calendar year (slow AIM) - not rebalancing leveraged ETF's often has the tendency to attenuate declines, amplify upside. XIV has had a great couple of years (benefits when volatility is relatively low), I'm guessing that will change this year (bad year for XIV, higher volatility than the last couple of years).

Moderately defensive without giving up on upside potential ... having a character something like https://tinyurl.com/ybmqq7cv
