Re: THE ALLEGORY OF THE HAWK AND SERPENT

There is a small fund called Mutiny fund. They have a podcast called Mutiny Investing Podcast. The first four podcast talk about how to invest in volatility. Nice guys. I reached out to them as well as Artemis a while back.

Re: The tech-dumbell portfolio

One perspective is that if you are a high earner / saver this may be a high probability plan. Fireplan mentioned a .3 percent perpetual withdrawal rate of 10 million. But the actual withdrawal rate is pretty high. 250k for 40 years not counting any other forms of income such as social security.

Re: William Bernstein on the Permanent Portfolio

I’ve been thinking about about productive land with a clean fresh water source as well. Also if you have not already done this solar panels seem to be an amazing investment. In my case the ROI is over 12 percent (forever). Plus I think the return is likely to go up if power rates increase over time....

AAAU. Lowest counter party risk and easily redeemable.

Re: William Bernstein on the Permanent Portfolio

Have not read the books but it does seem like Bernstein is attempting to predict the most likely outcomes and the point of the PP is that the future is unpredictable and to be equally prepared for any outcome. I've seen some compelling predictions and historical statistics that all fiat currencies a...

Re: Apmex onegold.com

Update - I got through. Here is how I think this works: Basically this is an allocated unsegregated account. My main concern was the mechanics of redemption. As an example, if you purchase one ounce of gold. Supposedly that will never change on your account. It will show one ounce on your dashboard....

Apmex onegold.com

Calling onegold.com to ask some questions about their service. Been on hold for long time. Luckily it's just questions and they do not have my money. Not a good start. Hopefully, they will redeem themselves once I get through.
