Re: Another solid January

I bought it in late 2008 or early 2009. Since then I've felt stuck in GLD because of the tax hit for taking a gain. But I happened to have a loss on something in 2018, so I was able to get some of it out.

Re: Another solid January

I sold a bunch of GLD in December, to take gains which will offset a loss on a sale of something else. Of course, I didn't go buy gold at Texas Bullion Depository or some other place as I had intended, because gold has been going nowhere, so why rush? Of course....

Re: Carnac The Magnificence's 2019 Predictions

We are due for a recession.
Divided government should be good.
Inflation has mostly eluded the Fed's efforts to generate it, and now they are raising rates.

In sum, I have no idea!
To place a chip on the wheel, I'll say the PP earns 6% in 2019. But with more downside risk than upside potential.

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

Instead of the nuclear doomsday clock, we need one for the USA splitting up. It's human nature to want to associate with "your own kind". I think we will split up, maybe in our lifetimes. I thought so before 2016. Now even more.

Re: The GOLD scream room

I saw a quote that said gold was up 7.2%. I must have mis-read it or something.
