re: Where would you live in the US if you had a choice? - Al Dante
Princeton, NJ. - A small town feel with Manhattan just a short, cheap train ride away and great schools. Any of the small towns around San Francisco, take your pick. Don't live in San Fran though. Tampa Bay, FL. Always liked that town. Got the beach, great weather. Don't know about the ...

re: US Open Thread (Spieth wins @-5, DJ 3 putts 18 from 12 feet to lose by 1) - Al Dante
I think it's a two-pronged mental thing with Tiger. First, he's gotten so involved in mechanics and changing his swing so frequently that it makes no sense: he's got to get more feel back in his game. Secondly, the whole cheating/divorce scandal fricked him in the head and gave him a sense of low ...

re: Need help outfitting kitchen - Al Dante
For skillets I would get Lodge brand cast iron - cheap and heavy. I would also get a non-stick skillet for eggs and maybe fish. You don't need an expensive non-stick because no matter what brand you'll have to change them eventually if you're like almost everybody. For Pots I would buy the Mar...

re: BOIL has become predictable - Al Dante
[quote]Shorting an inverse note has greater growth historically versus going long. [/quote] In the time frame you trade these securities the difference would be nonexistent. And you still haven't explained the reasoning behind going short DGAZ for days while never going long overnight on UGAZ. ...

re: BOIL has become predictable - Al Dante
[quote]Slippage helps a short, doesn't much help a long. [/quote] But in the case of DGAZ you're shorting an instrument that is the inverse of the long. You're kind of shorting a short. The beta-slippage should be the same between (short DGAZ) and (long UGAZ) because of this. I agree that a sh...

re: BOIL has become predictable - Al Dante
[quote] I'd never buy a leveraged commodity ETF or ETN. Never... The difference is when you own a ETN, or an ETF, you really don't own anything. [/quote] Conversely, when you short an ETN or an ETF, you really aren't shorting anything. Yet you will short DGAZ for a longer period of time than goi...

[quote]I'd never buy a leveraged commodity ETF or ETN. Never. This would require a conservative traders such as myself to close the position each day. No way in the world would I own this until market open. [/quote] I still don't understand. Sorry for my ignorance. You say you'd never buy a com...

re: BOIL has become predictable - Al Dante
That's all well and good, but why didn't you just buy UGAZ instead of going through all that to short DGAZ? [quote]It's also etched in stone that this stock can't be shorted, and there is no reported short interest, but I have it shorted. [/quote] Wow, I'm impressed. :cheers:...

re: BOIL has become predictable - Al Dante
[quote] I still have my short DGAZ. I'm long UNG. Within the last two weeks. Narrower range in my opinion.[/quote] Why would you be short DGAZ instead of long UGAZ? DGAZ theoretically has unlimited losses. There must be a reason why you chose to go short dgaz but I can't see it. ...

re: Zurich Classic Check-in and Prediction - Al Dante
My 12 year old wants to go on Saturday so I'm going to bring him. For those of you that have attended, should I buy just walking tix online now or wait until I get there and buy them onsite? Also, what's the parking situation if you don't have parking passes?...
