I would hardly consider a .8% increase a melt-up... Especially since we are still rangebound for going on 19 months now...

Happy 4th! No trading today!

With the Brexit going on and the trade war and the Iran issue, maybe its time to start thinking about protecting your investment. (link removed (mod))

now that is a link to some solid investing advice spam
Topics, in the context of protection, such as dividend stocks, stop-loss orders, options trading, and much more are discussed in detail.

Although options strategies are considered advanced topics in investing, the essential concepts of options for protection are simplified so that the beginner investor will readily grasp the protection strategy.
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but with a bureaucrat

Belief is the death of intelligence. As soon as one believes a doctrine of any sort, or assumes certitude, one stops thinking about that aspect of existence

For those of you who hold an international index, say VEU (ex-us stock etf) are you happy with its performance? Is it in your pp or vp?

I haven’t really looked. Besides an Israel etf, I don’t really hold foreign stocks these days. Occasional currency plays, like the Swiss franc & Japanese yen, but nothing serious or long-lasting.

Not supposed to start till Sept 1. He's got plenty of time to walk it back. Look, here, Trump is even co-opting PP discussion boards.

I still think Trump has people trading for him. Secret calls on disposable cell phones. "We're having cheeseburgers" means buy calls. "We're having French fries" means buy puts.
