Re: Trump as tragicomedy

That's a good one. And yet we'll have to put up with the same people preaching to us that Trump is an outrageous threat to free speech when he calls them "fake news". Anybody who believes anything fed to them by the mainstream media deserves everything they get.

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

There are many different types of intelligence, of course. Some people have a pretty good brain on their shoulders but aren't very articulate in speaking or writing, either by choice or just lack of interest. Some people are more doers than talkers. Regarding Trump, I suspect that a lot of stuff he ...

Re: % of gold asset in ETF or CEF for rebalancing purposes

Some people use their Roth IRA as a place for their emergency fund, because you can always take your contributions out without penalty.

Ok, that makes more sense. I should have realized what you were saying.

Re: % of gold asset in ETF or CEF for rebalancing purposes

Not sure on your math for the 911 rule. It seems like if 36.4% of each asset is in a deep never-to-be-sold condition, then 36.4% of my PP is also in that state, not 36/4.

Re: KeyBank Bans Gold Bullion from “Safe” Deposit Boxes

If the bank doesn't know what's in my safe deposit box, then how can they enforce such a ban? Aren't they really just saying that they won't accept more than $25k in liability? How would they ever know that I have gold in there? What would they do if they found out? Confiscate my gold?

Re: Immediate 5% across-the-board Mexican tariffs

For anyone who thinks it's a good idea for our southern border to be a sieve, with virtually no limit to the number of illegal immigrants who come across, I invite them to go spend a few months or years living in a Latin American country. I'll give you a little summary of what you will find. You wil...

Re: Immediate 5% across-the-board Mexican tariffs

I was going to add that I didn't want to assume that you and ocho were liberals. You aren't Trumpies, and you seem to think they irrationally hate Mexicans and want to nuke them. IE, you don't understand what their viewpoint is. Admittedly, I was exaggerating and being a bit facetious there. But th...

Re: What have we learned over last 10 years?

-I hold most of my gold in tax-deferred ETFs, and therefore not as much physical as I would like. Gold ETFs seem to have performed its uncorrelated role in these “normal” times, but they have not really been tested in a serious crisis. Will they be tested and will they survive? -I predict that the ...

Re: TLT Study - Inverting History

Unless I'm missing something, it sounds like you're saying to hold STTs if they have a positive interest rate and hold cash otherwise. Does that mean physical cash? So I would sell my x hundred thousand dollars of STTs and turn it into greenbacks that I would put in my safe deposit box?

Hasn't Trump been the only recent president who has shown any backbone towards China in terms of protecting American trade and intellectual property?

Re: The GOLD scream room

For whatever it's worth, I think you did the right thing, Xan. Budd was certainly a cautionary tale that money can't buy happiness. The guy is worth $13M and yet he's still coming on here constantly to whine when gold goes down a little bit. I don't think he kicked the tires enough before buying the...
