Down goes the Baltic Dry Index yet again

Another 28 year low for the baltic dry index, now down over 95% from it's all time highs, questioning the so called economic recovery these last 5 years and confirming that QE forever policies in the US, Japan and the Euro Zone are destined for failure. Eventually the weak economy globally should translate into lower asset prices across the globe.

My Asset Allocation Strategy (Indian Market)

Cash - 40%
Bonds - 20%
Fixed deposit - 20%
Gold - 5%
Stocks - 10% ( Majority of this in dividend funds)
Other Asset Classes - 5%

My belief is that stocks are relatively overvalued compared to bonds and attractive buying opportunities can come along after 1-2 years. In a deflationary scenario no asset class does well other than U.S bonds, the U.S dollar and the Japanese yen, so better to be safe than sorry with high quality government bonds and fixed deposits. Cash is the king always. Of course this varies with the person's age.
