He majority of this board is pretty young, so the accounts are probably under $100k. Russian and Iowa Golfer are the two posters that come to mind as likely to be significantly above 100k. ...

re: Do you include inheritance in your retirement planning? - TheHiddenFlask
It's a risk vs reward question. There is no way I would ever depend on inheritance to support my basic comfortable living. I've seen way too many parents get old and senile, start hating their kid/kids and write them out of the will. If you want to bank on that being your gravy (traveling, v...

re: Bloody few days, especially for me. - TheHiddenFlask
I have my 401k invested in index funds. That should be enough to let me retire very comfortably. When I quote returns, I am talking about what I call my "trading account". I scraped together a little cash when I was in undergrad and started trading. I caught the bull market run from 2009 until n...

re: Bloody few days, especially for me. - TheHiddenFlask
I think we have found a good floor on oil prices and I like what I'm seeing out of the LNG exportation business (I knownits a drop in the bucket, but I like where it as an indicator). Trading energy is always an upside vs downside trade for me. I think the realistic short term ceiling is somewhe...

[quote]yielding ~5% tax free. I've had them in my portfolio for 7 years. [/quote] I never said they weren't. I said they were risky, which. Some complete and total fools disagree with. You would have to have absolutely zero understanding of financial markets to think there is no risk in a bond th...

Bloody few days, especially for me. - TheHiddenFlask
I'm down 18% from last weeks highs. Moving into energy was not a good move. Second time I have absolutely failed moving into energy. I've lost my touch in that space. I may just give it up. I post this because in another thread people called BS on the returns I claimed and I said that my vol was...

Freedom of information on the Internet and the anonymity that allows someone to openly discuss the merits of Christianity without the social stigma enforced by the gestapo. If Christians want to stop the loss of the millenialls, they will need to stop talking down their noses and start talking a...

re: Trading the Greek Crisis - TheHiddenFlask
You can buy puts on them, which many HF guys will loosely refer to as shorting. Please link the article, I would be interested in reading it. I have not looked at the mechanics available for shorting ETFs, but I did extensive research a few years back and I came to the conclusion that you can't ...

re: Trading the Greek Crisis - TheHiddenFlask
IG is your NBG thesis mainly a TBTF one? I have no problem with that, but I am kind of interested in buying into something risky and this seems like an interesting opportunity. However, at a ~$5B valuation, I'm thinking im going to watch this knife drop for a while before I jump in. ...

re: Trading the Greek Crisis - TheHiddenFlask
If you can find a levered ETF that you can short at any kind of non ridiculous securities lending rate, please point me to it. I appreciate these kinds of intellectual threads, but shortingn leveraged ETFs is not something you can really do. If you could, there would be a huge arb opportunity. ...

re: Tax Free Muni Bonds - TheHiddenFlask
I'm not even going to get into the interest rate risk in these things. Your statement that they are getting beat up in anticipation of a fed hike is dense at best, but more likely intentionally misleading. They have been getting crushed because the long end of the interest rate curve has started to ...

re: Tax Free Muni Bonds - TheHiddenFlask
It's not a ridiculous claim in the least bit. You've never heard them make that claim because they make stupid margins trading them. If these things were really yielding 5% tax free (effective ~7% return), then every hedge fund in the word would be giv long these things up leveraging themselves ...

re: Infinite Banking - TheHiddenFlask
It happened once and 30 years later the insurance companies still make hay off of it. Great investment in their part, even if it was an accident. Just like the casinos love it when people think they can count cards, insurance companies love it when people think they can beat the numbers generate...
