I have yet only bought from the local coin dealer, and have never sold. But I have seen people bring in coins to sell back. I've not seen any forms ever exchange hands. I'll leave it at that.

Re: Gold is Losing Buyers to Bitcoin

Hey bitcoininthevp,

What's your take on the Bitcoin Cash fork? You HODLing your Bitcoin Cash stake, sold it already, or growing it?

Re: Out of balance

Not much spare cash at the moment. We just bought our first house. I plan to buy physical gold moving forward though. Pared the 401k contributions back to the company match.

Re: Out of balance

Why can't you just use some of the cash to buy bonds inside the 401k? That won't help with the gold, but it's better than where you're at now if you're trying to follow the rules of PP. The best I could do there is an aggregate bond fund. Good expense ratio (0.02%), but only 5.95 years duration. Th...

Out of balance

I'm currently at: Stocks: 26.73% Bonds: 15.81% Cash: 42.45% Gold: 15% Stocks and most of the cash is held in my 401k and bonds and gold are held in IRAs. Moving forward I won't be contributing as much to my 401k as I have in the past, so I think I won't have my hands tied as much in the future. Also...

Re: Small towns

We're in the process of doing just this. Buying our first home in New Hampshire: ~5 acres, in the woods, across a covered bridge. Moving from Philadelphia area where I've lived most of my life. Who knows if it's a good idea, but we'll find out. This was something we've talked about for a few years. ...

Re: Difference between PP and Risk Parity

I like the idea of 50 year Treasury bonds. Several recent threads have expressed worries over the flattening of yield curve. Some have suggested retreating to shorter maturities-- a sort of "half barbell" response. However, I think that 50 (or even 100) year T bonds would capture more volatility fr...
