Well at least bonds are holding. I am finding gold's response the past two days a bit strange.
It's almost as if someone was manipulating the markets and sold their gold position today, right before stocks late day rally. Soros?

Re: Health insurance

I know an illegal immigrant who suffered a massive heart attack in NYC. He was revived and spent 2 weeks in a fine hospital. After about a month he went back in for another week for a heart valve repair. His bill is probably close to a million dollars but it's not costing him a cent. How can this co...

Which Gold ETF Would You Recommend Now?

I'm going to be purchasing some gold soon and do not want the physical kind.

Which ETF would you recommend from GLD, IAU, PHYS, or AAAU?

Thanks.

I like the WSJ. I have access through a relative.
LOL. Last I checked, they don't have multi-user or family plans.
But we do. He pays the bill and I share the login credentials.

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

Pelosi ripping up the SOTU address like a spoiled child is going to haunt the Left right up through November. It will be seen millions of times and probably cost them the loss of the House. Good.

Re: What the heck happened to Maddy?

Okay folks, the dust has settled a bit. It seems that a post that Maddy made torqued off a moderator, and he put Maddy on the ban list. By default, the option to delete all posts is checked, and it was accidentally left that way. So the deletion of posts was unintentional, but the banning (although...

Re: Stock Meltup Underway?

The problem with these predictions is that they may be accurate given an unlimited time horizon (i.e. yes, the stock market will go through a correction sometime in the future), but they can't predict the timing of the event. A few years ago, Rick Ferri released his 30-year forecast. Like a bunch o...

Gold's Time To Shine?

I cannot lie. I created this thread because I liked my subject line. That being said, gold seems to be ready for a breakout. It's even been outperforming equities the past few days. Is this gold's time to shine?
