re: Best online financial firm for individual stock purchase? - bovine1
Vanguards commissions are pretty competitive now. For occasional trades I'd just use them and I do. IB is the least expensive broker I've ever used but I was trading fulltime then. At the time 2011 I had to generate at least $30 commissions a month. I love IB's algos especially Booktrader....

re: Is Everything "In A Bubble" Right Now? - bovine1
Prices are in the tank is the main reason. The last farm bill cut subsidies markedly for most. We've had quite a few sellouts in this area. I work for a major rice miller. Mexico was our largest export customer. They have quit us pretty much because of the political rhetoric. They started buying ric...

re: Long Term Stock/Investments - bovine1
I own ACAZF which is partially owned/managed by BAM. I look at BAM but I always find it pricey. If you can stand blood in the streets value plays look at CF, MOS, and POT. Potash and rock phosphate mining are in very concentrated hands. Right now agri is very depressed but the cycle will turn. Good ...

re: The Northeast Louisiana University nostalgia thread .... - bovine1
Mad Sally's. My freshman year we had the last panty raid before they banned them. Night after girls came to Olin for a jock raid. Some fool threw a bucket of ice off 10 or 11 and liked to have messed a girl up. I was also there the night the Shah was going to give a speech and they shouted him off t...

re: Anyone here with plantar fasciitis? Looking for good socks? Update w photo - bovine1
Mine got to where I was having terrible heel pain in the morning. I got some Physix Sport and Nak Fitness compression sleeve/socks from Amazon. The heel pain resolved pretty quickly. I wear them all the time except when I'm in the shower. I also put Prosport arch supports in my shoes/work boots....

re: Can the USA go into more and more debt forever? - bovine1
You're right there's a difference but to me there are similarities too. Who would've thought we could have a debt crisis that broke Lehman Bros, GM, and Chrysler among others. I didn't see it coming for sure. To pay our debt back we'd have to raise taxes pretty substantially and cut spending drastic...

re: Can the USA go into more and more debt forever? - bovine1
There were no bidders for the CMO derivatives that wrecked the market and broke wire houses that had been here a long time. Where were all our foreign friends then? Sure somebody will bid on the bonds but at what price. At some point in time there will be a market cleansing of our debt. It's the on...

re: Can the USA go into more and more debt forever? - bovine1
China has been selling to support the renminbi/yuan you are coorect. They still hold over 1 trillion dollars worth of our bonds as of year end. I personally think a sell order of that size would do us sizable damage. I don't watch much news....

re: Can the USA go into more and more debt forever? - bovine1
We can't pay what we owe now without a lot of pain. Greece situation or worse. Politicians won't allow it to happen until the market forces it. The Chinese could dump government bonds and cause this at any time. They'd just have to be willing to eat the loss on the bonds they hold. Research the Russ...
