Re: Fidelity Cash Options?

I use a Schwab brokerage window in my 401(k), and I have made commission-free Treasury bond purchases of only $1000 on more than one occasion. I have my IRAs at Schwab, and their glossary states that T-bills are sold in $1K increments (although I have yet to attempt to purchase any myself): Treasur...

Re: Which PP segments suitable for IRAs?

I have the same problem: a 401K, a Rollover IRA, and a Roth IRA.  My wife has the same 3 accounts as well.  I originally tried tracking all 6 in a spreadsheet as a single master account so that I knew the overall proportions, but the rebalancing challenges proved too much for me so I resigned myself...

FWIW, I'm a pro-choice Libertarian atheist as well.  Now that we have that out of the way, I think you have a bizarre idea of ...

Re: When Owning Gold Made You a Target For Execution

This is why precious gems can sometimes be a better vehicle in which to transport your wealth during an emergency.  For example, compared to gold bars and coins, diamonds are lighter, they're smaller, they don't show up on metal detectors, and they can be swallowed if necessary.  Which brings us ful...
