Re: worst gold fund for 2019

After I badgered my Dad to buy physical gold, he proudly told me that he finally bought some. Only he bought a gold fund. 😱

Vinny,

Remember that if you held your short term T-bill to maturity, you got your full principal back plus your original stated interest.

Right, and the same goes for those 5-year notes. But, if you have to sell suddenly, one could do worse than t-bills, or VUSXX (treasury money market).

Re: New Member and Permanent Portfolio Novice. Asking for help

Remember, you don’t have to go all in, in year 1. Like Ocho said, you may want to hold onto some stocks. You’ll want to put some of the proceeds into a broad market stock index, no matter what. But, don’t feel you have to rush to sell at a steep loss. Might want to ditch that broker in the near futu...

Re: mathjak's daytrading adventures

But is it real if you're just holding SLV?

That's probably how I would buy it if I wanted to buy a significant amount for short-term trades.

Re: New Member and Permanent Portfolio Novice. Asking for help

Hi! You wrote “many of my holdings.” Are there stocks with gains that you could match against those losses? If there are, I wouldn’t hesitate to sell for an overall gain/loss of zero. Would you be able to get some benefit against income tax? Just a general question- better to have a Canadian get to ...

Re: mathjak's daytrading adventures

I guess reading about the Hunt brothers cured me of betting on silver. I only buy coins to give away to nieces and nephews, and occasionally with Christmas tips.

Re: mathjak's daytrading adventures

You’re not exactly going out on a limb with that opinion. It’s the reason Harry dropped silver from his older permanent portfolio, and the common consensus here.

Let us know if you buy it!

Re: How do you invest the Cash portion?

That’s a drop in yield, isn’t it? Meaning the value of those bills went up.
Even when the yield goes up and the t-bill price goes down, I’ll take the minimal loss vs that in other holdings.
