Re: Gold as Actual Money - Sucks

Uhh, well, China really is long on the US dollar. At the moment, it has no choice: China's central bank currently holds about $2 trillion foreign exchange reserves denominated in US Treasurys. It is the largest holding outside the US. The precise amount of US Treasurys held by the PBOC is an officia...

Re: Gold as Actual Money - Sucks

Is there something wrong with China (and many other countries) being long on the US dollar?

Re: How do you invest the Cash portion?

Welcome to the forum. I think the above suggestions will probably work out just fine for you. That said, consider the following points: 1. Keep in mind that the purpose of Cash in the PP is to always hold the safest and most liquid asset possible in case one of the three volatile assets exceeds its ...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

Did the televised debates narrow the Democratic field?

Did Kamala Harris-- who is "black"-- trash Joe Biden's civil rights record enough to damage his status as frontrunner?

Re: A question only a PP novice could ask

Funds you need for 6 months to 1 year should be safe and liquid. Keep it in your Vanguard Treasury money market fund.

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...

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...
