Re: TLT vs EDV vs ZROZ

I've used EDV for the past 8 years for all my long bonds. Keep in mind EDV is about 50% more volatile than TLT so you need less of it to balance out your stock holdings. Craig, Tex and others have discussed before so review the older posts in the bond section.

Coin Premiums Dropping Fast

You'd think with the recent rise in gold, coin premiums might be up. However, the opposite seems to be happening. I guess it's just supply and demand. For some reason people have stopped buying coins and inventories are bulging so coin sellers are dumping. Last week I bought some 1 oz Kangeroos at s...

Texas Bullion Depository Open for Business

Looks like the Texas Bullion Depository is up and running. They charge 0.5% yearly for segregated storage. Here's some information about the depository. The Texas Bullion Depository was designed to be different than other depository offerings from the very beginning. It was created to provide a safe...

Gold Eagle Premiums Falling

I've read the US Mint coin sales for silver Eagles and Gold eagles are at 10 year lows. That probably accounts for the big drop in premiums. For example, right now, Gainesville Coins has 1 oz Gold eagles on sale for $14.99 over spot. I've never seen a premium that low in the 10+ years I've followed ...

Sprott to acquire CEF

I saw today gold and silver were down today but CEF was up almost 3%. I figured something was up and apparently there is. Looks like Sprott is seeking to acquire the Central Fund of Canada much like they did to GTU recently. As of COB yesterday, CEF's price was 12.27 while it's NAV was listed as 13....

Re: Most scientists can't replicate studies by their peers

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New...

Re: Radical New Approach to Oral Health

Okay, since everyone here knows I am a pug worshiper but also a dentist for 32 years, here are a few comments, with the disclaimer that I did not read any of the papers cited in the OP: Chlorhexidine is not "the mouthwash of choice" for most dentists or even periodontists [gum specialists]. It tend...

Re: Radical New Approach to Oral Health

Javanese Turmeric appears to have the strongest anticariogenic agent as shown in several recent studies. As one of the world’s most studied spices, turmeric’s effect on S. mutans has also been examined. When applied to slides prepared with S. mutans biofilms, Javanese turmeric demonstrated similar b...

Re: Radical New Approach to Oral Health

I expect that good old Listerine would probably do a better job killing oral bacteria than the natural methods listed. But to each his own. What about using Listerine or equivalent, waiting an hour, and then taking a liquid probiotic and swishing it around before swallowing? Chlorhexadine is still ...

Radical New Approach to Oral Health

I think the mainstream approach to oral health entirely misses the mark. I've come up with a radical new and hopefully better way to foster oral health. It has nothing to do with brushing, flossing, toothpaste, tongue scraping, mouthwashes, etc. It has everything to do changing your oral microbiome....

Re: Fake News

IMHO, it's best to assume that any organization claiming to be the final arbiter of the truth is almost certainly biased one way or another. I'd go even further. All organizations are biased in some way just like all people are biased too, All information you get emanates from some human source so ...
