I remember poor Catacombs (Israeli) was briefly on the forum, panicked, got rid of his gold at the bottom. Never came back, at least not with that username.
That's exactly what a portfolio like the PP will protect us from... an uncertain future. He should have rebalanced INTO gold. Poor guy.

I fondly remember the good old days in school when something was marked wrong and I told my teacher I was merely being overly precise. O0
Did you write 7.000 instead of 7 as an answer to 3 + 4?

Digital Currencies Pave Way for Deeply Negative Interest Rates - WSJ Wow. Negative rates don’t bother me that much, as I have stocked up on notes and bonds that will expire when I expire. Taking away paper money- that bothers me. Off topic: Will we still be allowed to hoard gold? dual. I’m enjoying...

Maybe they don’t mean “high contact” in the sense of impact, but rather contact in the covid sense.

Re: How do you invest the Cash portion?

For a purist that is far from close enough. For the cash holding...safety is paramount with return not a goal. We unfortunately don't have better options in Canada. All of our short term government bond funds have at least a few years duration risk. There's no 30 day T-bill funds. Bank balances are...

Re: How do you invest the Cash portion?

Hmm, I used to buy T-Bills directly, but I got lazy. I still buy bond and notes, but with rates being so low, I ended up going back to Vanguard's Treasury Money Market fund, which is what I started with in the first place. Haven't bought t-bills for a while. There were never any fees. I don't remem...

I am double vaxxed and believe in vaccinations strongly. However. I have no interest in arguing with people who don’t want to get vaxxed. I’m just too agreeable I think.

Smithers, I think it is time for you to come clean on the ring story. One doesn’t lose a diamond ring. And then replace it… Dude… Hold your ID card upside down and Kriegs will rescue you. The previous one had no diamond! Again, I’d rather the money spent on this ring to have gone all to Gold conten...

I don't think this pandemic is ever actually going to end. Viruses mutate. That's what they do. New strains will proliferate faster than new iPhone versions every year . And of course, the ones that actually propagate are the hardy ones that resist the effects of inoculation. I think we're likely l...
