Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

He was asking whether flyingpylon's suggestion applied to the pro-Trump ones. It didn’t, because the discussion was specifically about Trump. But generally speaking, I don’t advise that people allow things that bother them to live rent-free in their head. It doesn’t seem healthy. A guy named Harry ...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

What about your insane obsession with "The Left?" Sounds a lot like the conservatives who b!tched about Obama for 8 years claiming he was a muslim traitor commie. I'm sure there are plenty of Americans, including but definitely not limited to tens of millions of moronic conservatives, that substitu...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

Here's a challenge for anyone that is relatively certain that there's nothing Trump could do or say to change their opinion about him: Ignore him for a month or two. At the end, see if your life was better or worse during that time. Then move forward as you wish. Does this apply to his knuckle-drag...

Guess he's done "making" America great, now he's "keeping" it great. Trump on if he's not re-elected: **The Trump Economy is setting records, and has a long way up to go....However, if anyone but me takes over in 2020 (I know the competition very well), there will be a Market Crash the likes of whi...

Re: Tankers attacked

Dictatorships and theocracies are unacceptable, the question is does non-military intervention work better than military. https://old.reddit.com/r/neoconNWO/ Have fun overthrowing the governments of half the damn world, including Saudi Arabia. And what do you consider non-military interventions? Sa...

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

I'm thinking wealthy people might start thinking twice before agreeing to be a college commencement speaker. Because of an "Instagram user?" Come on guys you're really reaching now. Not really. Bitter contempt for the rich is widespread on the Left. It doesn’t even matter if you made your money hon...

Re: Meaning of 1-3 yr and 10-30 yr treasury ladders

Where has Tyler posted his method? I'm getting more and more interested in hitting higher-yielding portions of the yield curve vs a solid barbell.

Re: Treasury Yield Curve - June 3 2019

Are the banks that currently offer 5-year CDs at 3% basically taking a loss on the CDs in order to hopefully attract new customers who will also sign up for lines of credit (from which the bank actually makes its money)? My example was Ally, which doesn’t require a new account to get that rate. But...

Re: Treasury Yield Curve - June 3 2019

I've also found it interesting that a 5 year treasury will yield me 1.9% but I can get a 5 year CD for 3%. I know hardcore PP philosophy shies away from FDIC insured accounts vs treasuries, I still can't get over when there's a nice spread between the two.

Re: Treasury Yield Curve - June 3 2019

Seems to me an ideal time for the PP to do well. I don't know about the rest of you but I think I had my biggest one day gain ever today. Told my wife if we could do this every day it would be better than winning the lottery. Bonds and Gold have done ridiculously well (as has the PP) the last 6 mon...

Re: Treasury Yield Curve - June 3 2019

Every time I look at yields the last few weeks, I can't help but think "wow, that escalated quickly". Bond markets seem completely sold on the fact that we are 6 months - 1 year out of a recession. How are you getting that timeframe? If rates aren't really low until we get to 2-3 years into the yie...
