Re: Stock scream room

Haha, yeah that is also a valid strategy. I look forward to one day being comfortably deep in "won the game" territory where I can just stop caring, pick a static allocation, and let it autopilot. It's a good goal. Nah, I've learned my lesson. Follow the strategy. Put up with whipsaws. They are una...

Re: EE Bonds = 3.5% 20-Year Treasury

How do EE bonds work if you do not hold them to maturity. If I sell after 10 years is my effective interest rate still approximately 3.5% per year minus the penalties or is there some kind of a curve that incentivizes holding for 20 years?

Re: Tactical Asset Allocation + HBPP an intriguing combo

Nomura was quoted in ZH today: "The steep rally in global equities looks to us like a “bear squeeze” rally, powered by exits from bearish positions that investors accumulated during the downturn". That makes more sense to me than investors are looking forward to the economy re-opening. That's just ...

At this moment there are 546 confirmed cases of CoronaVirus, with 22 deaths," he tweeted on March 9. "Think a...

Re: Stock scream room

RE-POST The evidence that Trump is lying is that 10 million barrels per say would be 43% of Saudi and Russian daily production! It's impossible on it's face! KSA and Russia would ...
