Well, SO glad the latest WWIII crisis has been averted...at least until tomorrow.

What an amazing change in volatility 2018 has brought.

That’s the PP for you.
Gold and Treasuries selling off post false positive crisis.
I feel even more confident holding a higher percentage in equities.

Schwab just published a note to clients suggesting as much as 9% of a portfolio could be devoted to gold. I've never heard that from them before.

Did they give a reason for that (maximum) percentage?

Yeah, it does seem large for Schwab. I've never used them, but I grew up knowing who Charles Schwab was and just associate them with stocks.

Jesse Felder is talking about gold on his podcast. I'm looking forward to hearing it.
