re: Anyone else buying gold? - Iowa Golfer
I agree. I don't see any long term bullish gold runs. I see a correction followed by a dip. I don't own a lot of gold, so I only follow it big picture. I do see long term potential in silver, and am pretty much copying after the fact JP Morgan's physical accumulation of silver. Edit - The one thi...

re: Anyone else buying gold? - Iowa Golfer
The larger questions is does anyone ever any sell gold when it's high? Same is true of stocks. Most hold through highs and lows. I don't. I always sell some amount (not all) of some assets at a gain, and put the capital somewhere else. Ideally a currently depressed asset class. But I'm not a huge go...

re: Pair trades everyone should be making right now - Iowa Golfer
A call is a long position with a predetermined maximum certain loss, a put is a short position with a predetermined maximum loss. So above I paid for the right to either buy or sell the stock at a set price, except for the last two trades where I sold someone the right to sell those stocks to me ...

re: Forecast when the Fed Reserve will increase interest rates again & how often? - Iowa Golfer
Yellen is Keynesian and dovish. She will resist increasing interest rates. She (they) might have to raise rates to save face. I'm in the minority, but she is the wrong person for the job, and the Fed has made numerous blunders in recent years. Her best work in my opinion was during her fairly short ...

re: Trump most socially liberal Repub since gerald ford? - Iowa Golfer
How would I know? Mostly by paying attention. There are already some examples cited on here. Go ahead a do a Google search of R candidates and eventual POTUS' positions, and enacted policies. It's revealing, and you might learn something you might not want to become aware of. ...

re: UPDATE: Fed Chair Yellen is testifying live on CNBC now. (9:34 am, 2/11/16) - Iowa Golfer
I came home after lunch today, and for s&g flipped between all of the business channels. Some older guy, and I don't remember who, said part of her job is to act as cheerleader, and part of her job is to be decisive. She has failed at both. Although the second point is disingenuous. Not that it ...
