  1. What's new in this club
  2. Gold’s status as an inflation hedge is exaggerated - BlackRock
  3. The VOC (Verenigde Oost Indische Compagnie) was Dutch and originated in Amsterdam and the EIC was British and originated in London. They share a history of allies and war. Fun fact: due to the 80 year war with Spain. The Dutch government did not have money for military ships. So the VOC came up with a plan to sell shares of the company to fund military ships. This resulted in the first ever stock exchange. (I like history a lot)
  4. I don't understand why Milton Friedman was so revered for so long... or at least quoted so much. Maybe it was just a snippet in economic time where his matched what the world wanted?
  5. Remember a clean $2000 was passed under Trump (Because Trump said he'd sign it!) & the Senate is still sitting on it. Anything other than a budget reconciliation needs 60 senators to pass in the senate. Otherwise the other party can filibuster. I think they are going to do this through budget reconciliation Our economy is based and backed by the faith in the United States economy and the ability to pay its debts. That's why we see little to no inflation now. How much longer can that be true? Maybe a couple more trillion bills, maybe more ... If only everyone could understand that these money created out of thin air are diluting the buying power of all the other dollars people hold... I bet it would not have been received so joyfully.

    In this lecture-style presentation, John Cleese claims that creativity is not a special talent. People are either in an ‘open’ or ‘closed’ state of mind. The closed mode enables people to apply themselves to tasks with vigour and concentration; the open mode is more relaxed and conducive to creative thinking. Cleese talks about how leaders can induce an open mode in their team members and establish confidence in them to accept that there is a succession of learning steps on the road to total quality.
  6. "What's important when you're in that hedge fund mode, is to not do anything remotely truthful. Because the truth is so against your view, that it's important to create a new view, to create a fiction." - Jim Cramer, hedge fund manager 2006 "Then you call the (Wall Street) Journal and get the bozo reporter in Research in Motion and you would feed that (rival) Palm's got a killer it's going to give away. These are all the things you must do on a day like today, and if you're not doing it, maybe you shouldn't be in the game." - Jim Cramer, hedge fund manager 2006 “It might cost me $15 million or $20 million to knock RIM down but it would be fabulous because it would beleaguer all the moron longs who are also keying on Research in Motion." - Jim Cramer, hedge fund manager 2006

    "A lot of times when I was short at my hedge fund ... meaning I needed (a stock) down, I would create a level of activity beforehand that could drive the futures. It’s a fun game and it’s a lucrative game." - Jim Cramer, hedge fund manager 2006 "Who cares about the fundamentals? The great thing about the market is that it has nothing to do with the actual stocks." - Jim Cramer, hedge fund manager 2006
  7. Imagine having an average annual income of nearly half of the cost of a house. Times certainly have changed. (Of course our houses have changed quite a bit since then as well)
  8. This is a good link to see JP Morgan Chase's track record:
      Hello guest!
  9. They would enter orders and then cancel them before they executed. A process called "spoofing"...... this would effect the pricing of the gold and silver which they would then profit on. Steal BILLIONS for decades.... get a fine in the millions...... = cost of doing business
  10. @JW Insider I like your approach. Gold we all agree seems like it can only go one way. Amazon and Alibaba are definitely eating up all commerce..... And Netflix seems unstoppable. Only major risks I see are Alibaba getting banned like WeChat etc... in the USA. Although that might not stop their meteoric worldwide growth. The other moderate growth option is just used as a "stabilizer"
  11. I figured I would be the one to start with my current pie:
      Hello guest!
    After the next "crash" I will lower my % of gold / stocks.... so far the fed is pumping in money so it is hard to tell when this game will change. If you don't have an M1 Finance account you can use this link to get your first $10:
      Hello guest!
    This is not financial advice as I am not a financial professional. This is just me sharing my current allocation. Trade at your own risk. Never invest money you aren't willing to lose.
  12. As is discussed almost every year, September has historically been the most disappointing month for the US stock market. So far, it looks like this September could also disappoint. The previous 94 Septembers have lost 0.7% on average.
      Hello guest!
    ? The first couple days aren't boding well for this month.... although we've never before had a FED this willing to print Trillions and literally buy up ETF's either. Hmmmm.
    • Hello guest!
    This comes a mere months after having done this for 1M Together with inflation this will create big issues and big reactions from companies. All this because the ECB wants to stimulate the economy with negative interest rates. Where there is nothing to stimulate as everybody is thightning... Where will companies move there cash? The ECB wants them to invest. Bitcoin may be a safer option for some part even with the price fluctuations.
