Season 1 felt much more reasonable/possible. I know, its a knock off of the British version (which I plan to watch). But I find it hard to believe a sitting President would be so gullible as Walker was portrayed. ...

There not really all that outrageous. For someone who makes in the 70 to 100K range and doesn't live an outlandish lifestyle the 1.5 to 3 million range is reasonably achievable. If you have a few really good years of returns more than that isn't o...

With everything paid for and no bills except electric, cable, gas, health insurance, etc I'd say 2M would have me out the door. I think I'm to the point where I'm pretty comfortable saying I can generate 8-10% a year of of investing/trading.
I should add, that retirement to me would mean working...

Not doing too bad. I'd suggest lowering your 401k to where you are taking advantage of the company match, but not putting in extra. Knock out the student loan and the car debt and get cash in the 10-15K range....

The author has written on the metals in particular before. His point is now banks are becoming involved in other markets in a similar manner. He also points out that much of the push in the metals market was taking place as the banks were taking place as the banks were receiving bailouts. ...

The banks owning the LME, physical metals, warehouses, and delayed shipping periods 400-500% from previous warehouse owners is fact.
Maybe they delayed shipping because they are incompetent? But no reasonable person could come to that conclusion....
