Re: Where do TIPS fit into the PP?

i dont care for tips ... they may follow the cpi which is just a price change index through out the 1500 mini economies that make us up , but it is not linked at all to your personal cost of living .

Re: PP Five years out?

3% real is what I meant. Can we dare assume 3% real, averaged over the next 5 years? 2% would be ok, too. I would like to think the PP could handle negative rates and float along giving better than 0.1% on a bank savings account. Therefore 2% real would be ok, too. That 1966-1981 era may be upon us...

But for a disaster portfolio, it seems to be pretty successful so far. And it's about as simple as you can get: 2/3rd actual physical gold (geographically diverse) ...

Re: Strategically taking a 401k loan and/or no-penalty withdrawal

There is never double taxation except on interest... It is a Susie ormann myth ...she used to tell her band of financial misfits it was double taxed to talk them out of it ..... Yes, that always irritated me. But she probably did more good than harm if she talked them out of taking loans to go on v...

Re: mathjak's daytrading adventures

mathjak, I know you are a big stock guy and am curious what your allocation is after this drop. I thought you said somewhere (maybe earlier on this thread) that you were somewhere around 25%. Is that about right? Thanks. Yes ..... Over all I am about 25% equities... Very high cash levels though ......
