Re: The GOLD scream room

Budd is laughing all the way to the bank, with his mostly stock portfolio. Don, the thing is, I am guessing Budd is NOT laughing all the way to the bank. He agonizes over any loss, or any loss of added gain. I have moved past that. Money used to rule my day to day existence before the PP. Now it do...

Re: 100% stocks with almost no downside risk

I always "wanted" to do married puts. A few years ago I went back through 25 years of trades and verified if I had them, it would have improved my return significantly. Not from added gains, but protection from losses. At the implied volatility, with the ITM put at 205, you are correct, there seems ...

Re: Assange

Trump today: President Donald Trump, when asked if he still "loves" WikiLeaks as he said in 2016, told reporters in the Oval Office that he knows "nothing about WikiLeaks." "I know nothing about WikiLeaks. It's not my thing and I know there is something having to do with Julian Assange. ------------...

The thing that pisses me off is that almost every single story starts out with I hurt my this or that, my doctor put me on pain medication, and it all spiraled out of control from there. If there are truly people at these pharm...

Re: Seattle Is Dying video

... If there are truly people at these pharmaceutical companies that knew they were this addictive and should be limited in use vs. prescribed willy-nilly, there shouldn't just be civil lawsuits.
