Re: GLDM - 0.18 exp. ratio 'Gold minishares'

Re: There seems to be an advantage to Roth conversion now until 12/31/2025

I'm likely too negative on Congress, but it's in their nature to expand and take. Maybe it won't happen. Perhaps a prelude to it would be reducing the advantages to a traditional IRA, pushing more people into Roths. Herd people together to do the most damage. Wow... I'm very negative on Independence...

Also,

Will Congress someday tax Roth IRAs?
I think it's only a matter of time. Hopefully it's a LONG time.

It shouldn't be feeling comfortable at all...you are losing .95% real as inflation is running about 2.8% now.
But yet it does.
Captain, illogical. :-)

Re: The GOLD scream room

I think gold has potentially a way to fall yet.

Harry Dent is thinking $700/oz down to $400/oz? Seems extreme, but who knows?
