Re: Privacy terms - Google Drive vs OneDrive

You could always put together a home server or use a cloud VM and run NextCloud. https://nextcloud.com/providers/ Not sure what kind of stuff you guys are storing in the cloud and/or sending by email (except Ochotona, I know it's a bunch of cat pictures and memes O0 ), but some of these ideas seem ...

Re: What is your current portfolio?

However, I'm horrible at just stepping back and trusting things to run their course, and I spend way too much time thinking about, researching, and testing out asset allocations, tactical strategies, rebalancing strategies, drawdown strategies, market conditions, etc. That is a downside to not work...

Re: What is your current portfolio?

Long time lurker here, first time poster. While I started following Harry Browne's work more than 20 years, I have never held a strictly PP portfolio, but have nevertheless been strongly influenced by it. I try to diversify not just across asset classes, but also across strategies, to hopefully get...

Re: IAU Taxes w/Fidelity and TurboTax

I download TurboTax for free every year through Fidelity. I think you have to have a minimum account balance to qualify, and even then they don't make the link easy to find. But it's worth looking for if you happen to invest with them. Thanks for the tip. I've used Fidelity for quite some time, I'l...

Re: IAU Taxes w/Fidelity and TurboTax

I have held IAU with FIdelity in the past and the small selloffs were in the annual summary and importable.

As far as free tax sites, https://www.freetaxusa.com/ is another good option. It even calculated what my state income tax should be so I can reverse engineer it on the state site.

Re: Stock and ETF brokerage costs plunge

When I get a momentum signal to move a large part of the portfolio, I want to do it in one go, get the exact closing price, not have my large order sold, not be exposed to bid-ask spread. Isn't the bid-ask spread essentially 0 for all of the large funds you'd be doing momentum on? S&P 500 as IVV,VO...

Re: REITs

REITs have again blown past their all time highs. VNQ closed at $95.25* with it's previous intraday high of $94.07 busted both Friday and again today. Good time to be in REITs!

*Edit: It looks like Yahoo Finance revised the close to $95.25

Re: Stock and ETF brokerage costs plunge

Are MOC that big of a deal? I could see if you bought stocks and you wanted to buy or sell at close in anticipation of an earnings move, but if you are trading ETFs why not just sell 30 minutes before close and then buy your new shared fast following?
