Bitcoin and gold imo, in addition to a balanced portfolio of stocks, bonds and real estate.

> Bitcoin and gold imo

Bitcoin makes zero sense as an investment. Doubly so during a recession.

On that second point, we don't know that yet. It didn't exist during the last recession, so it's still a guess as to what'll happen.

Aside from buying physical gold at a refinery, is there a place to buy gold from the equities market? Sorry if this question sounds naive/ridiculous. If it's in my country, people would go to gold/jewelry shops and buy gold. In the US, I'm not sure if it's the case. Thank you.

Check out gold ETF's. They hold the physical gold so you don't have to, you just buy a stake in the physical assets. The ETF prices will vary depending on the specific ETF, but you can find ones that track very closely.

You can buy a Gold ETF such as GLD: https://www.spdrgoldshares.com/
