Re: 20% annual returns over 40 years...interested?

Funny to read all the volatility posts on the board...and here we are in our 3x rocket and the whole thing was a big...meah. Can you clarify your point? If you are saying that all the panic about the vol decay from leveraged ETF's was overblown, I would agree. Certainly there are some horribly desi...

Re: Has everyone gone insane?

Welcome to the United Deep States of America

Anyone who doesn't think exactly like the technocrats, media propagandists and spooks in DC is now an enemy of the state.

Re: Has everyone gone insane?

This is a very sad day indeed. It's clear that a coalition has been formed to take down Trump. The Deep State + All Dems + Many Republicans (establishment) + MSM (propagandists for globalist agenda) are in an alliance to maintain the status quo. Look, you don't have to love Trump, but it's scary whe...

Re: Synthetic Long LEAPS PP Experiment

For the s&p there's an index and an ETF for that...the s&p 500 put write index and associated ETFs. I believe there is a gold related ETF as well but it is like gold and some other asset. Google will bring up the details The PTW index beats the sp500 index on every measure you can think of. Unfortu...

Re: Synthetic Long LEAPS PP Experiment

If I was more up to speed on backtesting methods and in particular selling options, I think it would be interesting to see how selling puts on Gold, S&P and T-bonds would perform.

Re: New tail risk ETF

Meb Faber seems like a pretty interesting guy, but his track record with launching ETF's is laughable.

He keeps trying though I guess.

They will back down when people are outraged over this. Unless they take the usual, underhanded approach and sneak it a budget or something.

Re: Channeling Maxine Waters (Wikileaks Vault 7)

I assumed most on this site would be way ahead of the curve and already know these are some of the tactics the CIA is using to spy. Once the wikileaks which show how much media and social media collusion is taking place with the government/CIA, I think it will nudge many into a new reality. Almost e...

Re: IMPORTANT: PP FORUM GOING AWAY

Craig, Thanks for all your hard work on this site. It definitely served it's purpose and I've enjoyed the forum and learning about the PP. With that said, it's probably run its course. Obviously it's become mostly an OT and political forum. I wish all my fellow PP'ers well. Best of luck out there!
