Re: The GOLD scream room

Definitely looking forward to some more pain in gold. I don't have a particular target for spot that I'm wanting, but downward for now will help me accumulate. MOAR GOLD! A good friend of mine said I should get a parrot and be a pirate because of my gold (and now silver) coin interest. ARRRRRR!!!! ...

Re: The GOLD scream room

Kind of sad, the angst this still causes.

My PP for the year has ranged from -1.85% to 2.66%, currently at -0.79%

Why on earth I still even look is beyond me. 2018 will likely be a lost year, whatever.

Re: The GOLD scream room

I found this little bit of terrible investing advice while searching for the answer to the above: http://www.wyattresearch.com/article/why-baby-boomers-make-me-buy-gold/ People get married to an idea or position and have a hard time letting go, with pretty much anything. Here is a guy (who I used t...

Re: The GOLD scream room

Budd, no worries about having to post in the stock scream room anytime soon.

I think there should be another gold topic called the 5 stages of owning gold. Somewhere between depression and acceptance right now...

Re: Stock scream room

See, here's a perfect example. Market roaring higher. Any reasons? Not really. Not like you'll hear on the news "Market higher because Trump pissed off NATO allies" Or "Market higher as new tariffs put in place" I still can't rectify it mentally. I'm just glad I own stocks, even though on days like ...

Re: Stock scream room

I heard an interesting explanation for why stocks have been going up since the "trade war" began. Some people are viewing it as a short squeeze, that so many people had gone short in advance of the trade war starting that they were too many short, and they could be taken advantage of by short squee...

Re: The GOLD scream room

Conversely, tariffs kick in and stocks jump. Yeah, down a little today, but looking like they'll probably end green. Nothing makes a lot of sense. From Slope of Hope: "In a normal, rational market, a United States President openly declaring a trade war on the biggest economy on the planet and ratch...

Re: Teaching Your Kids About Money & Investing

If you are looking at or worrying about your investments more than a few times a year, you need to adjust something. Is that a "do as I say, not as I do" piece of advice? ;D It sure is. But....cut me some slack. I am 51 and had about 25 years of nearly daily investment looking/worrying time. And ME...

Re: Teaching Your Kids About Money & Investing

Great bullets for chapters in a book! Picking and choosing and adding: The top for me: 1) Live below your means. Be frugal. This is the easiest thing to convey to younger kids. Mine at times come home from shopping and are practically jumping with excitement when they have bought something off the c...
