Re: Gold Purchase!

Only iau etf now.

Personally I was relieved when I sold all physical gold.

Re: Ally bank website and other problems

Reminds me of a problem I used to have with my mortgage servicer website. I believe deleting the sites cookies resolved it each time which would explain why incognito mode would also work bypassing cookies. If you click on the padlock in front of the site address you should be able to see the cookie...

Whether you take mortgage or pay cash it doesn't change anything on a balance sheet until the house is sold. The mortgage balance cancels out the cash balance leaving you without cash either way unless it is a no recourse mortgage you can walk away from. If you can't work out only owning one house a...

Re: Where to Start Out...

First off, silver is not part of permanent portfolio.

Re: THE RECOMMENDED

I have become self help junkie lately. https://www.amazon.com/Miracle-Definite-Napoleon-Success-Course/dp/1469005395 Any audio books read by Mitch Horowitz are addicting. I also only like fiction that is self help. Example https://www.amazon.com/Go-Giver-Expanded-Little-Powerful-Business/dp/15918482...

Re: Nerds! Help!

Never had Verizon fiber but currently have Windstream fiber with rented "modem" which is just a wireless router. I was told I could use my own but prefer renting it and is actually included in price now. Fiber is converted to copper outside and is just ethernet jack in my wall. My understanding is t...

Is their central bank loaning money to the government so their debt levels are going way up at the same time? Or is the government literally j...
