Re: What have we learned over last 10 years?

Like you, I don't feel anybody fully understands gold. This is all just conjecture. But that's part of it's allure and a great reason why it's such a potent diversifier. Harry Browne was MPT before MPT was a thing. I buy and hold gold mostly because of how well it compliments a portfolio of stocks ...

Now the real question is, how do I stay productive at work the rest of the day with all this fresh data to analyze???

If you're worried about the time sink, you're in trouble. Portfolio performance in Japan is pretty fascinating!

Selling gold to buy the best bitcoin mining rig money can buy. Nice. ;)

Re: Stock scream room

Can't a webinar include voice? Or is it like Reddit AMA in which (I assume) the host speaks his answers and they are transcribed? The meeting is still live at a hotel, and I imagine they will be live-streaming his presentation including voice and video ala Webex. It's not the same as shaking hands ...

Nice!

It looks like it's by webinar (not in person), but it does seem like a nice way to ask direct questions. Could be a very interesting talk.

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

Forget about impeachment or criminal charges for "collusion" or "obstruction"... why don't we start talking about stringing Trump up on war crimes? ??? ::) (Sigh) After giving up on pushing collusion he didn't do and obstruction he didn't do to chase war crimes he didn't do, maybe the Democrats wil...

Re: Tax Loss Harvesting Support Group

Why not both? After all, there's no point to tax lost harvesting except to offset gains elsewhere. I always try to keep my portfolio rebalanced while minimizing taxes, which usually involves: 1) Harvesting losses 2) to offset as much gains as I can 3) to rebalance my portfolio as much as possible 4)...

Budd was banned for expressing his honest opinion. That banning is crap.

Re: Assange

What the feds are actually accusing him of seems to be conspiring with Bradley Manning to actually steal documents via hacking. If he did that, would that make him more of a criminal and less of a journalist? Well, in that case the individual who physically stole the documents and gave them to Wiki...

Re: Assange

My feelings are complicated on this one. I can see the argument that his actions releasing classified information harmed the United States and deserves punishment. I can also see the argument that he's no different than a journalist that does this all the time with zero fear of any repercussions. An...

Re: Ally bank website and other problems

"Funds on an EFT [electronic funds transfer] can take several days to settle into your Fidelity® Cash Management Account." I don't currently use the cash management feature, but I use Fidelity and like it a lot. In my experience, it takes about 3 days for an EFT to settle. In the investment account...
