Wouldn't that make it even more like what we think of as "money" nowadays?
LOL. I guess we can keep the gold and dump cash since they will essentially be the same. ;D

What will happen to the PP if gold can be made in a lab?

Gold has been created in a lab by scientists, but it's apparently currently extremely expensive to make. Here is an article about it from 2014: https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/fact-or-fiction-lead-can-be-turned-into-gold/ Has anyone else wondered what would happen to the PP if someone fig...

Re: HBPP 4x25 results, please.

The one negative about portfoliovisualizer is that if you back test the PP, it says it only goes back to January, 1978. It says it doesn't have long term treasury data before that. So you can't back test all the way back to August of 1971, when the US went off the gold standard. I really miss peakto...

Re: Cheating on re-balancing in a taxable account

You're definitely not being foolish. Being thoughtful about taxes is always a good thing. That said, I think it's important to put together a plan for how you eventually will rebalance in the most tax-efficient way possible. Maybe that's to do some tax-loss-harvesting now to offset future gains. Ma...

Cheating on re-balancing in a taxable account

Hi everyone, I've been doing the HBPP for 7 years and it has been doing great lately, obviously. My cash was at a little over 15%, but with the recent movements, my cash is now around 12.5%. Technically, I am supposed to re-balance now to 25/25/25/25. My PP is in a taxable account, and has a lot of ...

Re: Google Sheets hasn't pulled PHYS price for a long time

For whatever reason, NYSEARCA:PHYS just stopped working so I changed it back to PHYS and now it's working. So google must have changed it yet again.

Re: Best resource for PP backtesting?

I really miss Peaktotrough. Is anyone using a tool for PP backtesting that does the 15/35 re-balancing bands?

Re: Google Sheets hasn't pulled PHYS price for a long time

Actually, I just figured it out. To get PHYS to work in google sheets you now have to use this symbol: NYSEARCA:PHYS

Re: Google Sheets hasn't pulled PHYS price for a long time

PHYS stopped working for me in google sheets. I tried both PHYS and PHYS.U and neither are working for me. Are other people seeing the same problem? Any solution?

Re: The Permanent Supplement Regime

Hello all, I'm surprised there isn't more discussion in this forum regarding the use of high dose vitamin B3, niacin, for mental health benefits. Dr. Abram Hoffer discovered it in the 1950s after the pellagra (niacin deficiency) epidemic that was caused by the introduction of white/refined flour. Af...
