Re: Question about 401k plan allocations in the PP

What is the best way to funnel money into the PP part of your 401k from your plan contributions. Do most folks have it go into cash and then periodically allocate it. If so do you split the allocations across the asset classes each time? Looking for ideas. Having 401(k) as a part of PP could be pai...

The best part of the PP, IMO, is a day like today.

When the financial media and talking heads are gnashing their teeth about the drop in the market, my PP is up a couple tenths and I can say meh.
My Hideout Portfolio is down 0.28% today.
-0.21% for my 4x25 HBPP today

Re: The GOLD scream room

Only forum trolls behave that way. Well, do not feed the trolls :-) We got rid of one troll, and the discussions lately on this forum have been super constructive since then... until troll #2 jumped in today right where the first one left off, haha. This is a particular example of the fundamental c...

Some of you will say anything to defend the PP, even if it's totally illogical.
OK. Let it be that way... :-)

Markets are down greatly in the past few days. A trade deal with China is in jeopardy. N Korea launched 2 missiles today. We're sending B52s and a carrier fleet towards Iran. And yet, gold is only up a fraction. What's up with this?
This is how uncorrelated assets work.

Trade war fears again, but sigh, no love for gold with this fear.
If it is solid and not a fluke, give it a few days... (or more?)

Re: The GOLD scream room

I'm not really sure what the point is in coming here to post and trash the PP every single day that gold is down. It's funny how quiet it is around here on the days gold is up in comparison. I also don't understand why you don't just sell if you really hate the assets that much. Just be done with i...

I'm a chemist
In the British sense or the American sense?
Arrh! Didn't think of the difference :-)
In the international sense :-) A chemist and material scientist.

If you don't care then why not have a higher allocation to stocks?
Because I do not care. :P

Re: The GOLD scream room

Where’s ugly_bird? Seems he deleted his post. I'm here and I didn't delete any posts of mine. Not my style. As of stocks, gold etc... Honestly, I do not care. I'm a chemist, money is too boring for me. Since I chose PP I sleep well. Just repeat, I do not care. Actually I do care, I want Au or/and L...
