Weekday, near Grand Central starting around 7:30pm would really be the only time I'd be able to make. But totally don't plan it around me.

Re: Mathjak's Market Calls

With the PP up above 10% YTD this year, I'm curious to know where you're at mathjak to see if your strategy is still up ahead or if this year balances out PP's lackluster performance last year. Mathjak has long since been banned. I don't think that is correct. My understanding is that he left volun...

Re: *** NYC PP Meetup - 4/17/16 1 pm @ 181 Cabrini ***

Thanks bedraggled - likewise.  Unfortunately I live in CT and commute to NYC every day for work and life is just a little to hectic these days to be able to prioritize a meetup.  I keep my eye on the board and if one ever pops up on it's own that works out I'll make an appearance for sure.

Re: *** NYC PP Meetup - 4/17/16 1 pm @ 181 Cabrini ***

I was actually in the city that day, but shooting an interview for a documentary I'm making.  Would have been nice to say hi again, particularly now that the PP is doing well and not lagging like last year.  I said last time I was sticking with the 4x25 and I'm happy with the results of staying cons...

Re: PP humming along again

I'm up 8.39% YTD and extremely happy about that.  S&P 500 up only 2.78%.  Happy I never wavered (not that I really considered it).

Re: New Shares Of Gold Fund IAU Suspended

Is this anything to be concerned about? What about for GLD and PHYS holders? The article I linked to at the top of this thread fully answers the question of whether it is a problem or not, specifically with respect to IAU and GLD. Read the article, it's short and concise! As for PHYS, it's an apple...

Re: PRPFX -6.58% YTD, 4x4 +6.69% YTD

As I look at it more I get all kinds of weird percentages.  A simple google search pops up with a chart and underneath it says YTD is -6.58%. Yahoo Finance says positive 3.15% LINK: http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=PRPFX Morningstar says positive 6.34%  LINK: http://www.morningstar.com/funds/XNAS/PRPFX/...

PRPFX -6.58% YTD, 4x4 +6.69% YTD

Am I correct that PRPFX is really down 6.58% YTD?  My personal 4x4 is positive about 6.69% YTD as of right now.  That is a huge difference.  Any idea why it's doing so much worse?  Almost makes me question if I'm tracking mine correctly - everyone else is up 6-7% right?
