I mean, if you buy I-Bonds today, you would still get 3.54% for six months and then the (presumably much) h...

Re: Why isn't gold moving?

IMO any asset that wants to be seen as a safe haven (much less as a viable currency alternative) has got to become less volatile on a day-to-day basis.

I don't think people are mad about Roth conversions, they're mad that Peter Thiel made a lot of money in a way that they wouldn't have done even if they'd known about it. And he won't have to pay taxes on it.
