Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

I thought Vegas was sparse before… but it is seriously empty now. I talked to my homies at the [prime] rib joint and they said that the governor issued a new order 2 weeks ago. Instead of allowing 50% occupancy at the restaurants, bars and casinos, he has has cut it down to 25%. The order will stan...

Re: I Think This Forum Should Stick To Investing

Personally, I think this Politics section should stay. I barely follow US politics, and rarely look on this section. However I would imagine, perhaps naively, that if forum members are not interested they would not visit this area. Those that are so inclined can have a section as long as there is co...

Re: Hard Assets - Some Off-the-Beaten-Path Ideas

Hi Maddy, Have a look at the right side of the link for some hard asset ideas (including pianos) http://pricedingold.com/pianos/ First thing that came to mind was wheat. Can store onsite or pay a fee at the local silo. Farmers from the Great Depression told me this. People will always want to eat 8)...

Re: Poll: What percentage of your gold is held in physical form?

All kidding aside, having a bunch of gold coins hidden at the time of marriage is better than a prenup. Bonus points if you can quietly accumulate and hide them during marriage too so you can pay for life after marriage ( if when she leaves you). >:D Fixed that for you. This is such good advice for...

Re: Poll: What percentage of your gold is held in physical form?

How many Aussies are they not allowing in? The government website says they can come back, but they have to quarantine for 14 days. Ah, yes. but how many quarantine places are there ;) This is a Federal government decision not to make the additional quarantine places available. The reason it isn’t ...

Re: Poll: What percentage of your gold is held in physical form?

100% Physical for me. Some overseas, rest in local depositories. "NONE" at home, only few silver coins in case of emergency. Now the wisdom of HB's advice about keeping some assets overseas has become apparent. Australia shut its border, even to its own citizens, for months and still hasn't allowed ...
