Re: How do you watch Cricket world cup online?

Yes, but do we know for sure if Xan is a replicant/bot?

Re: How do you watch Cricket world cup online?

Leon knew he was a replicant, which was why he blew away the detective/blade runner in the spectacular opening scene of the movie. Rachel, the hot number that Tyrell has Deckard administer the Voigt-Kampf test, does not know she is not human.

Re: How do you watch Cricket world cup online?

Marlb10, could you convince me that you're not a subtle and sophisticated spambot? No offense (if you're not a bot), but your posts all have a very "with it but not with it" quality that have a sort of Eliza-esque feel. And you post things that are way off topic including links to quasi-illegitimat...

Re: KeyBank Bans Gold Bullion from “Safe” Deposit Boxes

What caught my attention in the Chase notification was the $25,000 cap on value, which seems simply ridiculous from both the perspective of the bank and its clients. For instance, why should Chase know or care if I have more than that amount in I-bonds?

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

I think that Nancy Pelosi is a vote counter. She has the House, but she does not have the votes in the Senate to throw Trump out. Her whole purpose in keeping the Trump/Russia investigations on simmer is to continue to dirty up Trump and the Republicans for 2020. I am not counting Biden as a shoo-in...

Re: KeyBank Bans Gold Bullion from “Safe” Deposit Boxes

https://www.silverdoctors.com/headlines/world-news/keybank-bans-gold-bullion-form-storage-deposit-boxes/ Here is the article in case it is not widely known. Also Chase bank has already banned storage. If I read Keybank's notice correctly, there appears to be a loophole in their gold ban: It does no...

Re: What have we learned over last 10 years?

however if that insurance cost 25% of the price of the house it was insuring i would think twice about it , especially with the odds of it burning down so low.. Bad analogy. Gold is a store of value and a hedge against economic chaos; not an insurance policy that costs you 25% of your portfolio. If...

Re: Invest like Buffett?

Warren Buffett has become a plutocrat, plain and simple. Once upon a time, he made a fortune by shrewd value investing. More recently, his methods have changed. Take his $5 billion investment in Bank of America in the depths of the Great Recession: Buffett did not simply buy common shares in the ope...

Re: What have we learned over last 10 years?

I would like to shift the focus of this thread and speculate on what the NEXT 10 years of the PP will bring: -I hold most of my gold in tax-deferred ETFs, and therefore not as much physical as I would like. Gold ETFs seem to have performed its uncorrelated role in these “normal” times, but they have...

Re: Ally Bank No Penalty CD

See Craig Rowland's comments in Cash FAQ: "Q: Why a Treasury Money Market Fund and not something else with better yield? A: Because you are not looking to take risk with your cash. Treasury Money Market Funds that are properly run are one of the most liquid investments you can own. There are no FDIC...

One thing is certain: Goldman Sachs will be "playing with your money."

That is who they are. That is what they do.

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

I think that there are all kinds of problems lurking in emerging market index ETFs.

The overweighting of China is one problem, but there are others as well: In what sense are countries like South Korea (12.5% of EEM) or Hong Kong (1.06% of EEM) "emerging" markets?
