Re: Epstein

Yeah, the deep ties between Epstein and Clinton have been known for years. https://www.foxnews.com/us/billionaire-sex-offender-epstein-once-claimed-he-co-founded-clinton-foundation I've always assumed that's how he walked free, and the fact that Epstein no longer appears protected must certainly hav...

Re: Epstein

You've got to wonder. . . Why now? And for whom (or for what faction) was Epstein amassing control files? I've read unconfirmed rumors that Epstein got that unbelievably sweet deal that previously let him off the hook because Acosta was informed that Epstein worked for US intelligence. If true (who...

Re: Meaning of 1-3 yr and 10-30 yr treasury ladders

Question 1: For the 1-3 year ladder does the GB portfolio hold each rung to maturity and then use the proceeds to buy another rung 3 years out? Or, does it roll over the ladder one year from maturity. The Schwab fixed income guy on the phone today thought it unwise to rollover a ST bond at 1 year f...

Re: FWOMX

This particular ad only says " could offer the opportunity for higher returns" (emphasis mine), which I do believe to be deceptive, because it applies to any investment, and is only being said there to make it sound like such a thing is expected (when it probably is not). Reading the fine print on ...

Re: Bond Convexity

Thanks!

I can honestly say I've learned a lot of what I know from discussions on this forum, and you even helped inspire me to make many of my charting tools. So I'm always happy to give back.

Re: Bond Convexity

Thanks, guys. Glad you like it! This particular article was kinda fun because I also feel like I learned something in the process. @Sophie -- I've thought about writing a book a few times, but then I get distracted with a new chart idea and the book goes on the back burner. ;D I've been writing long...

Bond Convexity

I'm pretty sure I first heard about bond convexity on this forum, so it feels appropriate to share a little research on that topic. It's a particularly important concept for the Permanent Portfolio not only because of the long term treasuries but also because of how the underlying portfolio theory w...

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. ;)
