Re: Sleep Paralysis

Sleep paralysis is different from the atonia experienced by the body when sleeping, I believe. I used to suffer a lot from it during the wake up phase when I was a kid. I am saying 'suffer', as it's one of the most terrible things I've ever experienced. It's such a nasty feeling that I still recall ...

How far can it go

Even though not related to US Politics, recalling dualstow's signature from my fellow countryman Velina Tchakarova (@vtchakarova: "It’s easy to be a communist in a free country. But try being free in a communist country."), decided to post a link to pretty new investigation documentary published by ...

Re: For our Euro members

Thanks for that, Hal. Choosing the proper US PP ETFs and/or contemplating whether to go with EU PP is definitely not an easy one. However, this PP implementation is not really for Europeans - 20+ LTTs are listed only on LSE (something I knew about) and given Brexit this ETF is even more non-Europeis...

Re: Search functionality not working ?

Thanks guys, thanks l82start !
It's weird indeed, actually, it may have a relation with the way a search term is indexed by phpBB (e.g. "Trump" takes half of the index-tree ;D ) ..
But you know better - thanks again!

Re: Search functionality not working ?

Not that anybody cares (or cared), but just for the record - using the generic search functionality (Search box in the top right corner) actually works with all the words except TIPS . That's really weird, though it's 100% reproducible on my side. Oddly enough I was searching for something related t...

Re: 2020 Permanent Portfolio Return Poll

Mine is a tad below 15%, but its a kind of special one - implemented in Swiss account with ETFs bought on Euronext, bond part is bullet that's slightly on the short side of the median WA - that explains couple of percents below your performance.

Such a question implies there is some sort of imbalance ;D Joke apart, your stories are truly amazing and I am genuinely happy that I found this forum a year ago. To the question ..

Re: Sound and fury

Honestly, it's only greed that brings me here. Greed of fiscal and informational type! Do not underestimate the number of people (me inclusive) that are just reading and quite rarely posting. So, in short - keep posting guys, there are some avid readers waiting out there ! ;D
