re: Investing in gold - marchballer
Gold is a good investment during market downturns. Last two downturns have seen Gold double in prices. However when market conditions are good, gold is not a sure thing. Definitely wouldn't invest all 25k in Gold....

re: Gold outlook, any reason to short? - marchballer
I definitely would not short Gold. Even though there is a ton of volatility in the market right now, Gold prices haven't really gone up much. Don't think there is a bubble here. The bubble is more likely in bonds or equities. Go ahead and buy gold and we'll both ride the wave up in this crazy ma...

re: Deutsche Bank Litigation / Bailout Watch - marchballer
Fenton, I'm seeing the same thing. I'm planning on pulling money out of the markets by Election Day. I think this Friday's unemployment numbers wil set the tone for how volitile October will be. I've seen reports suggesting that jobless claims have been going up. The first indication of financia...

re: Stanford 6 | Washington 44 - 4th Q - ESPN - marchballer
Disappointed tonight but proud of my Stanford Cardinal. Great win for UW tonight. We've won the PAC-12 3 of the last 4 years and it's been 2 years since we've received a beat-down like down and much longer since we've gotten one from a team not named Oregon. So I can't be too upset. Good Luck to ...

re: STAN @ UW, Fri 8 CT - marchballer
Stanford of course. Will be a tough game for Stanford. Back-to-Back road games on a short week versus a top ten team. Stanford Passing game was weak last week. If Ryan Burns has a repeat performance, we may see a switch to Keller Chryst mid-game. Both of Stanford's Starting corners will ...

re: Deutsche Bank Litigation / Bailout Watch - marchballer
I was wondering why stocks went down so much today. Last day of the quarter tomorrow. Will be interesting to see if anything saves this drumming. Only bright spot this week has been the OPEC deal. Commerzbank in Germany announced 10k layoffs which means that there must be more issues in the bank...

re: Deutsche Bank Litigation / Bailout Watch - marchballer
I agree. DB is likely the stimulus for a correction. Corporate Earnings will have decreased 6 straight quarters if predictions for next quarter holds. Oil is in trouble after the Saudi-Iran no deal today. Bank of Japan can't do anything for the life of them. With interest rates this low, governments...

re: $50K to invest for six months - marchballer
6 month CD from Ally Bank IMO (take with a big grain of salt as I'm a newbie) stock market is volatile right now to invest in stocks, bonds or currency. With the election coming up, Fed hinting at raising interest rates and Stocks already being near All Time Highs. I'd stay away from investing an...

re: Rental cars - do you ever purchase the additional insurance package? - marchballer
Only place I recommend doing this is in Iceland. Amazing country but after driving on those roads for a week, your car takes a huge beating. Iceland requires drivers to take the base insurance by law but your American Credit card/insurance company requires you to decline all insurance. We were o...

re: Please tell me about the San Francisco bay area - marchballer
Congrats on the offer. Overall the area is amazing. There is a reason why the cost of living is so high and it's the vast number of different things to do. Coming from San Leandro, you have a lot of options. The East Bay will generally be cheaper than the Penisula and SF. Overall it depends on your ...

re: Is Stanford out now regardless? - marchballer
In addition, the Pac-12 has much better QB play than the SEC. All across the conference there are QBs who can air it out all over the field. You don't see anything like that in the SEC. ...

re: Rob Ryan-SCAPEGOAT - marchballer
Agree 100% with this thread. Over the last 10 years we've constantly complained on this board about defensive players and coaches. At some point maybe it's not the DC fault but the guys above him. There is a decent possibility that in 3 years we could be having this very same conversation again. ...

re: 23-year-old Google employee lives in a truck in the company's parking lot - marchballer
I live 5 minutes from Google and on every other street you now see people living in RVs parked on streets near the campus saving money. City ordinance requires them to move their rv every 72 hours so you just see them rotate streets. ...
