re: Migraines - welcome to Hell - bovine1
I've had migraines and clusters for 40 yrs.. I would have 4-5 migraines per week. Calcium channel blockers, i.e. Calan or Norvasc(amlodipine) cut my headache frequency way down and lessen the severity when I do get them. Stopped the clusters. Imitrex for escapes. These drugs are a gift from God. I w...

re: Want to make a big gamble on a stock and need someone who knows about options. - bovine1
I havent run Black Scholes in years but I just went and looked at the March calls and the IV's are very high at least for my world. They're alot higher than the ones I routinely sell. I guess my question is why not just buy the stock in light of the fact that the calls are very high?...

re: Help me with my IRA understanding - bovine1
Foshizzle you're exactly right. Even in this low inflation era I have this argument with people all the time. If you apply the 4-5% draw a year rule to a million dollars that's 40-50K a year. You're not exactly filthy rich and living high if you retire early on that....

re: Help me with my IRA understanding - bovine1
When the IRA stuff was created in the early 80's interest rates were skyhigh (middle to high teens). I was at LSU at the time. Billboards all over town with the banks advertising 2000$ year in an IRA and retire a millionaire. Rates came back to reality and shattered that dream....

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...
