Re: What To Do With 70K

If you had $70k already invested in a taxable account (with negligible capital gains), would you pull it all out now and DCA back in? If not, putting it in lump sum is the same thing. Get it in there! I remember a bunch of people a few weeks back (late October) saying they were holding cash because ...

Re: How do YOU make coffee?

Pourover with Hario V60 dripper using fresh beans from a local coffee shop. The big game changer was a recent purchase of a Yeti insulated mug . I'm not a big fan of tumblers, but I am a slow drinker of coffee, usually taking ~an hour to savor it. This Yeti mug gives me all the benefits of a traditi...

Re: HEDGEFUNDIE's excellent adventure Part II: The next journey

It seems about half this thread (more?) has been focused on what TMF (or other bond variants of it) might yield over the next decade+ given the rate we're starting with today, and what that means for the viability of this strategy. After some deliberation, I decided to go with an even heavier equity...

Re: Should I not invest a lump sum today?

It's amazing how frequently folks post their version of market timing with the comment "to be clear, I'm not trying to time the market - I'm just trying to decide if this is the right time to enter the market". Not a critique of you, OP - I've been in a very similar situation and thought (...

Riding HEDGEFUNDIE’s excellent adventure

Hi All, I’m one of the many that have been very closely following the extensive HEDGEFUNDIE threads ( Part I and Part II ). The discussion has been tremendous and is some of the more intriguing content I’ve seen on this site – thank you to everyone who’s contributed! However, while those threads hav...

Re: is this market timing? or better

Everyone says they "hate buying at all time highs" - but if you look back at long term market peformance, it spends most of its time at all time highs. That's why the Boglehead philosophy works. Just ride the wave. If you didn't want to buy at all time highs, you could've found yourself on...

Re: HEDGEFUNDIE's excellent adventure Part II: The next journey

I have $50k set aside to put into this strategy (which equates to ~10% of current investable assets). I'm planning to use the modified original allocation of 55/45 UPRO/TMF (though I am flirting with splitting the UPRO allocation into 50/50 UPRO/TQQQ). What I'm wondering is, given current market vol...

Re: Cardio alternatives to treadmills?

I’m a big proponent of rowing machines. Good full body workout that lets you get your heart rate up and even squeeze a pretty intense workout into ~10 minutes if you want to!

Re: ‘Play money’ invested by Dad growing huge - what would you do?

One other option is to set stop-loss trades for any of the larger positions, say 5% below current prices - then any trades that get triggered, the proceeds get moved to your mortgage or index accounts. That would allow him the opportunity to keep playing, and if he stays on this run, things keep gro...

Market timing - home edition

Hi all, My wife and I (age 37 with two kids under four) have been living in Chicago for 5 years and just bought a single-family home there last year for $800k. It's ~2,500sqft with a small outdoor space, so reasonably comfortable in a shelter-in-place world. Like many others, this period of time has...

Re: Any interest in concise guide to HEDGEFUNDIE 3x Leveraged ETF Excellent Adventure?

I'd find a concise summary extremely valuable. While I find Hedgefundie's done a tremendous job clearly articulating the strategy, its primary critiques and grounded rebuttals to them, this is a complex enough topic for less sophisticated investors that even just having a second summary in someone e...
