Re: Minimum time frame for holding PP

Gold and Cash were both winners today. How is that false protection? Honestly, Budd, I don't know whether to pity you or laugh at you. You're about as miserable as it gets.

Re: PP performance for Q1 2018

My version of the GB is down 0.40% for Q1 2018. My buddy's portfolio is down 1.76%, so at least I'm beating him out. Lol!

Re: The GOLD scream room

Also, it's important to keep an eye on the big picture and look at the options from few different perspectives. For example, your portfolio looks a lot more appealing in the Drawdowns calculator. Different people are motivated by different things, so it's hard to make generalizations. The best I ca...

Re: The GOLD scream room

For anyone interested in playing with the numbers for themselves, the tool is now live. I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say your continued hard work is greatly appreciated, Tyler!
