Re: Another unexpected benefit of the Texas Bullion Depository

Thanks TN. I know that's a bit of a personal question, but it's nice to hear that someone here has actual experience with a given gold storage place.

Re: Another unexpected benefit of the Texas Bullion Depository

That's interesting. There is always a little anxiety with those kinds of things, like you have to act immediately.

Do you have gold there?

Re: The GOLD scream room

Here is a short column on gold and a very conservative portfolio by a guy who is not a shill for some gold dealer.

Re: Climate Change

Heck, we are still coming out of the last ice age which was only 10,000 years ago. Who knows where the top is? The climate history is one of ice age after ice age.

I'm very skeptical because of the political motives on both sides. Even though I'm on one of them. :)

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

OTOH, Hillary Clinton is notoriously smart.

It's all so wrong and unfair!

Re: Another solid January

I bought it in late 2008 or early 2009. Since then I've felt stuck in GLD because of the tax hit for taking a gain. But I happened to have a loss on something in 2018, so I was able to get some of it out.

Re: Another solid January

I sold a bunch of GLD in December, to take gains which will offset a loss on a sale of something else. Of course, I didn't go buy gold at Texas Bullion Depository or some other place as I had intended, because gold has been going nowhere, so why rush? Of course....

Re: Carnac The Magnificence's 2019 Predictions

We are due for a recession.
Divided government should be good.
Inflation has mostly eluded the Fed's efforts to generate it, and now they are raising rates.

In sum, I have no idea!
To place a chip on the wheel, I'll say the PP earns 6% in 2019. But with more downside risk than upside potential.
