Yield on 10-Year Treasury stayed under 3% from mid-November to early February.
Where was Alan J. Daniels while these historic lows were being made?
The low point was in December, at daily average of 2.08%.
Facts are stubborn things. And Chartnuts is a raving lunatic imbecile ignoramus.
No, imbecile, the Iraqi government doesn't have missiles capable of shooting down Israeli jets.
The Iranian-backed insurgents did have some light missiles suitable for helicopters.
You are truly not only too ignorant & crazy but also too stupid to comment on any subject under the sun.
At the worst on March 2, 2009, I was down by 92% on original money invested. I did lose a lot more than that percentage on Pfizer of course but that forced me into margin-call situations where I had to sell out other holdings in order to keep my core Pfizer holdings.
Being forced to sell the other holdings early was a huge blessing when the bottom absolutely fell out of the market between the LEH bankruptcy and early March.
While most people on this board were losing their shirts when their portfolio values disintegrated, a good part of what I had was just sitting in CASH to margin my naked puts.
So while I did end up losing a higher percentage of my original portfolio than almost anyone else, I did put in substantial additional money near the lows and I have recovered more than almost anyone. I'm still probably the biggest percentage loser on the board though but another few points on Pfizer and that will no longer be the case. And five or six more points higher for Pfizer and I will be among the very BEST performers from the start of the bear market.
> I'm two points away from having every last penny of my losses back.
And the guy who put the last of his money on roulette number 34 said "I'm one spin away from having every last penny of my losses back."
"As for bonds, just saying "you recall" them having such and such a move simply doesn't do it for me. I would need to see the hard stats.
If you are going to say something, be prepared to prove it. Don't send out a boy to do a man's job."
Do you even realize how stupid this sounds coming from you? This entire history of posts consists of everyone but you posting hard facts from reputable sources, and you stating that you don't remember it so it doesn't exist. You couldn't look any more foolish if you tried.
