Great data on the fact that you should take it out of paper and put it in to hard assets. I'd convert it into sugar, silver, and short-term Tbills. Shift it back into stocks in 2020/2021.
I would NOT buy farmland. It is grossly over-valued. Since we hold all of our assets in land, I also would not sell any. Just for this guy, a terrible time to buy land in terms of timing and valuation.

Nothing looks real good right now. Heavy in cash. Spread the rest around. Buy some Dec Corn and Nov Beans. Buy a little Apple. Buy a little Berkshire Hathoway and Exxon Mobile. Sit back and watch the show. Opportunities will arise. Just not sure where. Farm Ground might get cheap in some areas real soon.
