So you may not be shocked by answers to a question in a Deutsche Bank survey of more than 560 investors.
The bank asked, should inflation remain between 3% and 5% over the next decade, which asset class would you most want to buy and hold over the period?
· Property 43%
· Developed-market equities 33%
· Gold 15%
· Cash 4%
· Developed-market credit 3%
· Developed-market government bonds 2%
· Cryptocurrencies 1%

on a scale of zero to 10, with zero meaning no bubble and 10 meaning an extreme bubble, respondents on average gave bitcoin a 7.4 and U.S. technology stocks a 5.9.
