Re: Gold / Stock / Bonds at highs or near highs?

I am looking at where each of the three investments currently are and it seems that two - stock and bonds - are at the all time highs while gold is near an all-time high.

Untold History of the United States

Has anyone watched this series? 12 part documentary by Oliver Stone. I am in the middle of it and curious to hear opinions.

Re: PP and the Election

I am perfectly happy with the PP's performance.

I'm just curious as to what people think is motivating the trends in the various asset classes post election.

Re: PP and the Election

All of those drops boil down to a 2-3% drop for the portfolio. Are you really that stressed?
