Re: POLL: How did you overcome the fear of tracking error?

People always say the same thing. What I've noticed that although some parts of the PP could be expensive, one part is always inexpensive. That's how it works, non-correlated assets. It's just a guess on which one that is... If I had to pick right now it would be gold as the inexpensive asset. When...

Re: Fed buying stocks and corporate bonds

Came across this very interesting perspective buried in a Youtube video comment section: A new pricewinning dissertation was just piblished in Germany on how hyperinflation happens: Looks like It’s not like most people are thinking that it starts when too much money meets an unchanged or even decrea...

Re: BelangP proves PP is the least volatile

Another post to support ahhrunforthehills observations. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oR58b2RxzQY and Tylers Golden Butterfly leads the pack ;) Edit: And for Australia -> surprising! My concern is what happens to those ratings when you change it from "USA" to "Japan". The PP and GB are less impre...

Re: Right wing group think

+1 Let me know if you find a better investing forum Doodle. I am certainly not a liberal democrat by any means, but I have to admit that I agree 100% with everything you said. The best contributors have pretty much all left over the past decade. The really good contributors barely ever post anymore...

Re: Right wing group think

This forum has been overrun by right wing group think. 8-10 years ago this was an incredible forum with an amazing diversity of outlooks, opinions, and intelligent discussion. I learned a lot from participating in discussions here over the years and had my mind changed and perspectives broadened on...

Re: BelangP proves PP is the least volatile

Nice! I must have missed this thread and just happened to stumble across it today. But I'm always looking for interesting new measures, so I'll definitely take a look. @ Tyler Speaking of the above chart, I was really curious if you had ever researched a 35% Gold / 65% Stock allocation. I know you ...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Coronavirus seems to really have brought the issue to the forefront between those that are community-centric and those that are self-centic in a way that the old Republican vs Democrat never could. A mask is a small inconvenience for 99.9% of people and is therefore an excellent form of measurement...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

If I may ask....how did you pull that off? I just wear the mask in stores because it's not worth fighting city hall on it. I also go early in the morning or late in the evening, so that I'm in and out of there fast and don't need to stand on line. Well, for one, I read the governor's order. It laid...

Re: Funds or etfs for Stocks

One other factor you might want to consider is that your settlement period will probably different as well. For example, let's say there is a sudden major market correction and you need to re-balance some assets. The recent lock-downs are a perfect example when the market was swishing +/- 10% daily....

Re: Should I include cash and bonds?

@ volcker I have been wondering this recently as well (in fact, I had a very similar post the same day as you in a different thread). Someone else pointed out that this guy did an analysis and found that adding bonds to a stock/gold mix reduced your overall risk very little, but at the expense of m...
