Re: The GOLD scream room

Nice it is holding above $1300. But whatever. Good year so far for stocks. I do find it hard to believe the current 14% up YTD for S&P 500 will be sustained, but who knows, that's why we own some.

Re: 3 in 5 Millennials Say Life More Stressful

I am Gen X, and my kids are Gen Z. I see plenty to be hopeful for among that group. My kids and their friends are hard workers, financially frugal, straight A type students, with jobs and a boatload of extra curricular activities. I suspect we only see the fringes here -- I am sure there are plenty ...

Re: New Zealand Mosque Shooting

Interesting charts... Among the changes: The overall immigrant population continues to grow, but at a slower rate than before the 2007-09 recession. Recent immigrants are more likely to be from Asia than from Mexico, and are also more likely to have a college degree. The size of the unauthorized pop...

Re: New Zealand Mosque Shooting

When immigration happens at high rates, especially from cultures that are much different from the host, then it starts to feel like invasion. If immigration were reduced to a level where new immigrants could assimilate, then tragedies like this would be less common. What are you trying to say? Clip...

Re: Largest College Admissions Scam Includes Hollywood Actresses and Coaches

time-honored tradition Bribing and cheating is a time honored tradition? Or do you mean millions to name a building to get a kid in? One is sanctioned. Might not be right, but it is. The other is at least partially illegal. About time untouchables get thrown under the bus. FYI every single building...

Re: Largest College Admissions Scam Includes Hollywood Actresses and Coaches

I don't think it's quite so clear that what the parents did was illegal. That's interesting. So cheating on an SAT isn't technically illegal, you are probably right, but good luck ever getting into any school anywhere ever again with that on your record. I feel sort of sorry for the kids who maybe ...

Boeing

I found it interesting, that a seemingly now global grounding, with Trump adding in earlier today, had this blip down effect and immediate recovery. I don't get it? I understand it has already dropped a lot a few days ago, but the US grounding only added a little blip that recovered? https://i.imgur...

Re: Largest College Admissions Scam Includes Hollywood Actresses and Coaches

Endowments and names on building are out in the light, and yes, I'm sure it helps get kids into schools. But again, it is out in the open and legal. Paying to have someone else take your kid's SAT or correct answers, and bribing coaches to get kids placed through athletic programs when they never ev...

Re: Largest College Admissions Scam Includes Hollywood Actresses and Coaches

I am so thrilled by this it is weird. People may actually do prison time!? If this ever extends to corporate people and bankers who fleece people, that will be awesome. 2008 was not good in that respect. Maybe Trump should start attacking pharma and finance types with chances of real jail time vs. s...

Re: The GOLD scream room

The interesting thing is seeing when the scream room gets active. Been pretty quiet for a while, and late last year until early this, stocks were getting hammered. Now they’ve recovered a lot, and gold seems to have temporarily peaked. And this room gets active again!

Re: The GOLD scream room

Yeah, same old song and dance. Gold back under $1300. Who could have guessed. I really thought this time it was to the moon. Really this time. ;) Yes, well if you look at the full picture this week the dollar has been falling alongside gold... which is not normal. So you could still be proven right...
