Re: Kirkland Lake Gold KL

Is anyone looking at gold mining stocks right now? Supposedly out of favor, and value plays abound. ? Just checked, KL is still at 38. Did you buy it, JC? Yes I got it. Rode it to 57 and back down to $33. It is my side bet to collect a increasing 2% dividend with tax credit. My side bet is gold get...

Re: Bond scenarios

I will absolutely buy TLT if the band is hit. How close are you to a band? Is TLT about 20%? If you play like core inflation is 2% and headline is 3 1/2% I wonder where that puts TLT. Guess I need to try to answer my own Question: If the market needs 1.5% or so for a real return and 2% if the marke...

Re: Please meet Global Navigator and The Russell

Looks like the combo got changed. From 40%/60% to 70% Russell and 30% USA. I like that a lot better. We have visited about the levered products and the possible counterparty credit risk. Also using EDV when things turn funny. Might warm to the combo. I will showcase different combinations over time...

Re: Please meet Global Navigator and The Russell

Looks like you have stopped reporting Global/Russell 30/70%. It seemed to take some of the downside out and helped during times when the world is doing better than the U.S. Correct, I switched to reporting that combination to one of 40% The Russell and 60% USA S-M-L with the last update.

Just added gold back , 1317 Gld and 633 shares gbtc a Bitcoin proxy .

No Tlt yet but I may add just 10% of the position ....I think the inflation fears have more to go
Is there a way to get the present premium on GBTC? One site had a +6.28 for yesterday. Lowest for a while?

Yeah and emerging market stocks instead of TSM and bank loans instead of bonds. Nothing remotely PP-esque about this guy IMHO. You will not find any prominent wall street guys smoking the PP almost!!

Re: The GOLD scream room

Buy the dip. However, I don't need the money for a few years, I have way too much cash already, and I'm full up with stocks, bonds, BITCOIN, miners, silver... so gold it is. I guess if I had a hole elsewhere in my allocation I might not be buying gold. Since 2004 when GLD came out it has done +9%. ...

Gold is down 4-frickin-%.
Might have to buy some this month.
Might make 2% a year for 10 years. I got 28% of it and it't not going to do much for us unless we get lucky.

My numbers are IWS 20.00 and IWP 19.8625. They are very small to make a trade difference in my view. If I had a live trade in IWP I might not trade as the in and out will kill returns.

Used Portfolio Visualizer got 20.265 for IWS and 20.951 for IWP. Used ETF Replay and got 20.275 for IWS and 20.951 for IWP. Anyway IWP is the winner. Probably includes dividends for ETF Replay. Both services are one day late reporting the last day of the month. Hard to do a trade before the end of ...

Re: Please meet Global Navigator and The Russell

The Russell had a surprise winner for the end of the month, IWP is out, IWS is in. And with that last minute change, I'm going to stop giving what it looks like the investment will be until the month is fully over, just confuses things when they don't go the way they look like they will and change ...
