Re: Read the Permanent Portfoilio Bible?

Yes definitely read Best Laid Plans! It is an outstanding and very thorough debunking of just about every strategy ever used to try to beat the market: momentum, moving average signals, guru predictions etc. By the time you get through it, you'll become naturally suspicious every time you hear some...

AMUNDI PHYSICAL GOLD ETC (C)

Good!

I like to use several tickers for the same asset.

This is not mentioned by HB but i believe it reduces the risk.

Please comment.

Re: EU PP 2016-2019

For info again: Amundi started a gold ETC last May. Perhaps of interest to European PP investors as Amundi is owned by Crédit Agricole, which is the biggest bank in France and so relatively secure. Backed by physically allocated gold, held by HSBC. Thank you very much! What is the TICKER symbol? 8)

Re: EU PP 2016-2019

I see your point. The PP seems overly pessimistic in asking you to keep 25% in cash for a depression scenario. I find it hard as well to stick to it and kept the cash balance at 10-15% knowing that I could free up more cash if really necessary. So in my view you do need to keep a sufficient cash ba...

Re: EU PP 2016-2019

Hi,

what about doing EUPP only with:

GOLD
STOCKS
LT-BONDS

If you have more cash for any required adjust/balancing.

Thanks.

Re: Yearly balancing or 15/35?

Good to hear from you frugal!!! Have you been lurking all this time? I think there are others who can answer your question far better than I. If your question translates as "can I get better returns by eliminating the cash component" then the answer is "yes, probably but not enough to really make a...

Re: Yearly balancing or 15/35?

I've been checking monthly only because I got into the habit of tracking expenses and finances on a monthly basis. It's fun for tracking purposes, but checking asset proportions that often is like watching paint dry. Rebalance events happen every 2-3 years, more or less depending on how you're hand...
