Re: Maximum Bond Upside

It's also possible the market expects Brexit to pass and then the entire EU might unravel. So investors are looking to park money where they think their money would be the safest if the Euro goes away. That could be bonds, cash, and gold.

I'm a Tube Amp Convert

Enough politics, let's talk audio. Several weeks back on a lark I bought a used Audio Innovations Series 300mkII tube amp (AI300). This is an amp made by the now defunct Audio Innovations out of Britain probably in the early 1990s. It may be older than some of the readers here. I bought it to use in...

Re: The Irrationality of Alcoholics Anonymous

But is AA meetings alone worth $40K a month? Because that's what they're charging insurance on the high end scale. Could you clarify what this means? Who is charging insurance, and for what? Do you have a link to support that assertion? Probably that is for high roller celebrity style rehab. I susp...

Re: The Irrationality of Alcoholics Anonymous

All well and good. But you know if someone has a destructive habit that can only be controlled by taking a prescription pill before they engage in the activity, then maybe stopping all forms of that habit outright ain't such a bad idea. "I find that my heroin use is far more manageable when I speed...

Re: Maximum Bond Upside

The bond market is extremely efficient. It is way more efficient than the stock market in my opinion. The math on them is what it is in terms of duration and interest. The biggest benefit with the barbell over ITT is that nice wad of cash for riding out market turmoil, plus the ability to rebalance ...

I have changed the default cookie name. That will force people that were logged in to do it again and will eventually put everything in sync.

Re: Maximum Bond Upside

The US 30 year treasury's yield is down to 2.43%, which is below the lowest yields during or after 2008. I have no idea the last time it was down this far. The great depression maybe?? Supposedly this is about the Brexit vote on June 23rd. Maybe next week would be a good time to check the portfolio...

Re: Mathjak's Market Calls

Mathjak was not banned that I'm aware of and I just checked his account and it is not banned.

Very few people have ever been banned from this forum. You really need to go above and beyond to get banned, or be an outright spammer.

Re: NEW FORUM HOST

Hey craig, could you fix this? It's shorter than the old forum nor can I put in the size code. http://i.imgur.com/RozmzH3.png i upped it to 375... I put it at 400. I originally lowered it so we wouldn't see a novella in people's signatures. Images and links are also prohibited. I can't stand images...

Re: NEW FORUM HOST

Domain transfer is in progress. It will take several days but hopefully all goes smoothly and the domain will go straight here without the redirects I'm using now.
