Sold down to 5% today.
I won’t bitch about it anymore now.
Liberating!
Even if a gold bull market begins today? :)

But, good that you've got your allocation to something that makes you comfortable.

I have already doubled my $ in Gold and it’s time ring the register. I’m OK with any gains from here as I still hold 5%. Godspeed.

i find the diversity of gold , bitcoin and a commodities etf a far better fit than 100% gold today..staying 100% gold today reminds me of those who fight the last war …..

i would think if harry could have seen in to the future the portfolio would have evolved over time.

the reality is nothing in life is permanent

Gold has nothing in common with bitcoin.

OMFG, don't you guys have any thing better to do in life than to constantly think about the price of tea in China?

Maybe you don't do that but you give the impression that you do.

Based on your other posts you both have more than enough money to have to worry about your financial well-being.

i suggest you learn about drawing a retirement income .



it isn’t about the amount invested as much as it is how it is invested and how things go both sequence wise and return wise if the money is to last.


unless you are drawing a very low percentage which would be a very inefficient use of ones life savings then INVESTING MATTERS

I'm pretty sure the only changing with the times you've done is jumping into the PP and jumping out of the PP depending on which way you THINK the investment winds are going to blow.

This is excellent analysis, and yet another reason why you're such a valued member of this forum.

As noted in the thread on bond rates, you don't always reply. At least not when it comes to past predictions of yours on rates and future stock market movements.

As someone else noted previously, your opinions are antithetical to the PP investment philosophy, and yet you continue to insist on posting on a PP investing forum with your 'opinions' that you masquerade as facts, and rehash the same ole story lines time after time after time. The forum was a little slow while you were gone, but at least we didn't have to read your same crap over and over and over again. Bring some real data to the discussion that could help current/future PP investors, or just take your CNBC inspired 'opinions' elsewhere.

We've been through this before. If i blocked your posts it would be impossible to follow the conversations.

From a logic standpoint, if you didn't post the crap you post every single day, then you wouldn't have any replies from me to worry about. Surely you understand.

Perhaps if I keep trolling you I'll touch a nerve like I seemingly have before and you'll go away for awhile.

EDIT: In fact, I'm editing this to add that when I pointed out on Nov 4th some of your past predictions that were woefully inaccurate, you went away for a remarkable 18 days.

no actually now you gave me fuel for the fire to keep replying to what i disagree with .

at the end of the day i had my call right about interest rates as both tlt and gld have lost money this year so far or did you want to gloss over that as you forget i said last january the pp was going to have a very hard time and it certainly did as gold , tlt and shy are all negative this year.

down is down

Looks like you edited this to remove reference to the fact that you hate losing money.
Do you own stocks? They had a terrible day yesterday, so whatcha gonna do about that? We've been through this exact same discussion before as well, and it was the discussion that led you to leave from May to October.

Your call on LTT's has been terrible since May. You may be right moving forward, who knows. But you sure seemed pretty convinced you were right on where rates were headed back in May, and you've been wrong.

Need I remind you what you said literally one post ago.

I quote: "down is down"

So it doesn't matter how far you're up for the year, or how much stock you have. Down is down. And you hate to lose money, again, taking this straight from your previous posts.

Well, I'm sorry, I can't help you then. If you can't see the point of your hypocrisy in bashing LTT's and GLD because they're down a bit for the year (again, you're fond of saying 'down is down') while the entire PP is up for the year, while at the same time saying it doesn't bother you if your stock holdings are down because your entire portfolio is up, then I can't help you. I realized a long time ago you're a loud mouthed New Yorker, and I'm sure the only people who can stand to be around you or listen to you blabber on are other loud mouthed New Yorkers.
