I must say though, reading this comment about not having enough brains while also looking at your avatar is hilarious!

I think it takes a different kind of intellect to fully adopt and deploy it.
For me it was no intellect at all as I didn't have enough brain to figure something else. So, I was one of very few who listen to friends's advise about PP.
I'm totally thankful to him :-)

Down 10% one day so you buy, next day up 10% sell, etc.
How would you know that on the next day it will not go down another XX% ?

In that case am I better placing my weekly funds all in stocks to buy low (assuming this is low)
We should not assume anything. It is market timing.

I can’t foresee any good reason to sell gold in the PP. Say it goes up to 40% of your PP. You really want to rebalance out? I don’t think I could.
This is what the book says. Actually up to 35%. :-)

Re: Stock scream room

if someone like Ugly Bird hasn't hit their bands yet then by all means carry on. Thanks! :-) I think the reason I didn't hit the bands (15/35 4x25 HBPP) and actually quite far from those (Stocks are lurking at around 20%) because I do not rebalance annually and do not even remember when I did last ...
