Re: Trump's letter to Pelosi

I imagine, if it comes down to Biden and Trump in 2020, esp. if this Biden thing is still brewing, I see a lot of independent, reasonable people in the country voting for Trump. Yep. The Biden family corruption is so blatantly obvious in this situation that anyone can understand it. To the average ...

Re: Golden Butterfly

How did the 50/50 foreign/Japan golden butterfly do CAGR-wise in real terms in Japanese Yen (since this would be from the perspective of a Japanese investor who would have his portfolio and his spending denominated in that currency) from 1990-2011? Also, what would you be using for the "rest of the...

Re: Tyler Interview on TVL

Thanks! I don't do too many live discussions like that, but I do enjoy talking about asset allocation and am happy to hear it translates well. Describing portfolio theory verbally without the benefit of a chart is certainly a challenge. ;)

Re: Golden Butterfly

I'm definitely not hung up on only using domestic assets in the Golden Butterfly. On the one hand, I do naturally have a Browne-influenced perspective on economic diversification that focuses more on the cycles of the local economy and the importance of diversifying outside of stocks entirely rather...

Re: Golden Butterfly

The short story is that the Golden Butterfly is a simple iteration of the Permanent Portfolio that I came up with when exploring what to do with my variable portfolio. Here's the original thread that tracks the first idea through many pages of discussion: https://www.gyroscopicinvesting.com/forum/vi...

Re: Buying and maintaining the LT bonds part of the PP

Yes, I agree with that. If I lived in the US I'd go with TLT :) This is what comes closest in the EU: https://www.ishares.com/uk/individual/en/products/272122/ishares-euro-government-bond-20yr-target-duration-ucits-etf but has just a duration of 19 years. I think you might be confusing maturity and...

My trying to bleed any valid critical analysis out of Trumpists is the most fruitless efforts I've ever experienced.
If you're struggling that badly, maybe try a different approach. Clearly what you're doing now is not working and is making you unhappy.

Re: Impeachment failing in battleground states

What I am confident is that Trumpanzees have no f'ing idea what they're talking about, and are hopeless tribal boobs. You Trumpists really are something to behold... but I don't say this with little anger. Just confusion and embarrassment. This place used to have some really damn intelligent conver...

Seems like events also constitute bribery....
Well apparently Democratic leadership thought better of that interpretation, as bribery is notably absent from the articles of impeachment they issued today. What a colossal waste of time.

Re: Fidelity - SHV BIL or TBILL ladder (auto roll)

Personally I'm a fan of SCHO. It's the Schwab equivalent of SHY but with less than half the ER. And it now trades free at Fidelity.

Re: New pp article

the problem is data shows that more conservative people seem to just have lower panic points too ... typically the conservative investor is conservative because they lack pucker factor when they see things fall . it is likely that any pretty conservative investor seeing the stock investment fall of...

Re: Spreadsheet to backtest the HBPP.

Tyler, You continuing to recommend "Simba's Backtesting Spreadsheet"? The above seems to be one of the last times it has been discussed anywhere here? Vinny Absolutely. The guy who currently maintains it goes by "Siamond" on the Bogleheads forum. I correspond with him all the time about data source...
