Re: Do I need a Gold ETF in my PP?

Folks, thank you so much for your replies.  They are all very helpful to me.  Given my current financial situation, I'm leaning towards just holding physical gold now (in a safety deposit box / insured). I appreciate the time you have each taken in addressing my many questions.

Do I need a Gold ETF in my PP?

Hello there folks, I have began implementation of my permanent portfolio after many months of reading about it.  In total, my PP right now will have a total value of around 60k (divided up in 25% increments per asset class as the strategy calls for) when I finish implementation. I have opted for sim...

Re: Setting Up a Brand New Permanent Portfolio

Regarding insuring physical gold, be aware that there is a specialized insurance company that offers much better rates than your standard insurance companies.  They are mentioned in some older threads on this board, or maybe someone will remember the name.

If an account contains less than 9.1% (36.4% of initial 25% holding) of the total value of your PP, then you can put just one asset in it and never have to worry about touching it until it's time for an extremely rare fourth consecutive rebalance out of that asset .  This 9.1% rule (actually, 9.11%...

Re: Setting Up a Brand New Permanent Portfolio

Hey tdepaula, Are you self employed? If so, look into an individual 401(k) Roth as an option for retirement accounts. If you can't make use of that now, it's a good option to have up your sleeve for the future (but sadly can't be done at Vanguard from my own experience). I'm toward the end of my ca...
