No, we haven't. But sure invest in some nice stable index funds, no way bank and government fuck ups of this magnitude could ever result in an economic crash!

You mean like 08? And the following years with mad gains. I've been listening to you guys for years. "This is the year it all ends! Get gold and silver now!" You are mentally ill. If you want to play around with a small portion of your funds in metals sure that's fine but you are speculating not investing.

Seriously go bury gold in your backyard. No one cares. If shit really hits the fan and the world market crashes and anarchy rains all your gold and silver won't save you when the hordes of people who hoarded weapons and ammo come take your shit.

gold literally only has value because the usa, russia, and india won't stop buying more reserves. those countries keep buying gold so that the cost of gold stays more or less stable vs. their national currencies. precious metal is actually worthless. its value is a product of three governments colluding to make a resource artificially scarce. china used to be involved but they've started aggressively pursuing goal hoarders, their own reserves are vague and difficult to assess.

Fuck index funds, fuck bonds. You like bonds, you should buy some land, plant some trees on it, cut them down in 30 years and sell the wood you will make more money than in fucking bonds.

Divided stocks. WPT. JE. BWC.. Especially WPT. Holy shit WPT is such a great company for dividends.

I'm sorry but metal backed currencies aren't coming back. Something like cryptocurrency would be the next step but it's pretty delusional to expect fiat to end near your retirement.

I don't see fiat ending in our life time, not even several lifetimes.

Growth stocks have outperformed dividend stocks for awhile now, not to say there isn't room for them. Bonds should make anywhere from 0-20% depending on your risk tolerance.

You should buy some land, plant some trees on it,

I never said metals were going to back the world currencies after a fiat collapse, but they will be used temporarily as an investment with a stable value, as they have many times before in human history, until new currencies are created. If you don't think hyper inflation is inevitable with the way the Fed spent their way out of our last crash and lowered interest rates, you're delusional.

We made it through severe inflation in the 80's just fine. You're banking your hopes and dreams on a world changing event and I'M the delusional one. Do you even listen to yourself?

Enjoy working for the rest of your life.

The indexes have been at a high forever.

Trump is proving to mean very little negative things for business, and perhaps even highly beneficial.

You know that if you don't sell during a recession you can just wait a little bit for it to return to normal, right?

Literally buy and hold for 25 years and you can't go wrong.

Without having to follow a link, it mainly refers to the S&P 500 index, which is the top 500 stocks in America.

Minimal fees, the most profitable companies, and is the general benchmark for investing ("beating the index")

No, it definitely does not. Only simpletons think indexing equals S&P500.

Safest is drawings money out of the ATM, buying food with it and storing it.

Let's all just put on our crash helmets, load up our shotguns and sit in the windowless bathroom in our basement and quiver with fear for a market correction.

Fucking stupid. Grow some balls and buy some stock. Even the most boring 90% private-held dividend stock in the market is better paying and about as risky as a T-bond or money market account.

You sound like this goldpumper who said in 1980 that gold would go to 2k in a few years and mega corporations like McD would go bankrupt and fiat was gonna fail.

youtube.com/watch?v=easuUdhW4X0&ab_channel=TheDollarVigilante

Stock have been a good investement for 200 years. Today it´s even easier, because you can just buy an index for minimal cost.

Gold has been a poor long term performer compared to stocks. Those are the facts.

Why would gold be a good investment in a world where fiat currencies aren't ready to collapse? Right now though, they are, hence why I invested.

Depends on the index. The S&P500 is great for losing equity during a recession since it's mostly banks, overvalued tech stock and uncompetitive dog-shit consumer discretionaries.

You want to buy actual good, individual stocks, not just a basket of shit with a few gems in it that barely grows enough to outpace inflation.

There are firms that pay like 8% dividends and outcompete any index fund out there over the long run. Indexes are for lazy people, it's a dumb way to invest if you have any inclination to learn what the fuck you are doing.

That "basket of shit," as you call it, will outperform any number of stocks you pick. You're a fucking moron if you think you can outperform the market.
