Just recieved a letter from TD Ameritrade soliticing my account transfer offering $1000 for a minimum $250K deposit plus a $75 transfer fee and 90 days of free trades. Meanwhile Vanguard offers you nothing want even pay the transfer fee and they don't charge you one either if you leave. TD Ameritrade must be in trouble. Currently with Fidelity and considering Vanguard.
I remember waiting for the spin offs to unlock value, and waiting and waiting:) Some like Northstar (NRF) that actually did there spins, did not achieve the desired results. Be very careful sipping that lemonade :)
J1, I'm trying to figure out you are a bigger #$%$ when holding a winning hand :) or a losing hand :(Tough call ! You know if as you say slick lies about every trade his ideas are still good.
I prefer to simply wait for the jobs report and roll with the punches. It makes no difference what I want or what I wish. I think most market watchers don't call a broad trend based on inter day price movments.
I fail to understand why thewisejman,jfnh1 and slicktop4 are so jealous of eachother. Bragging and lying aside some good ideas are presented and like a buffet you can try out what you wish.
J1, Best of luck shorting this Fed induced bull market. You see I don't care how anyone else invests or how much they pay per trade or how much they win or lose or how rich they are. I prefer to give my full attention I to keeping my own boat afloat and let others do they same. Bragging and name calling only serves to diminish a person. It's very easy to trade ideas without vile personal attacks.
Yes this move will be my next to the last move. A active adult community with full amenities including a large old fish pond and plenty of trees and "weeping widows" for receration:)
Ock , Frau Wiserwrong is not at all complicated al all, she likes what she likes! My new house will be ready in September.
Chanos is a person that likes to short with other people's money at risk. His articles and presentations are trying to lead others to short to break a trail for him and he hops on the momentum instead of leading the charge with his Capital. I see Chanos as a simple POS trying to take other money.
Frau Wiserwrong told me she prefers you with shorts on and holding your WEA tight. On the other hand she thinks I,m better long with no shorts. She likes different strokes with different folks:)Thoughts?
My post about issues using a TaxAdvantage account as loan collateral was good information to the board, not to you or about you.
Last week you posted that some young Chinese offering cash bought a house you had made a offer on.
The sale on my residence to a female first time home buyer fell through when she had buyers remorse on moisture in crawl space. Over the weekend we had 7 showings and recieved 7 offers with one low ball and the rest being full price or better making sure each bidder knew in advance about moisture problem and I was taking care to repair it. The winning bid was $1k over ask with no other demands or contingencies . The 47 year old buyer has a 30 year Ioan at 3% interest lives nearby and is probably an experienced investor. My point is an experienced investor recognizes value and bids to win.
One must be very careful in using a Tax Advantage account like a IRA as collateral for a loan. The IRS can disallow your IRA tax exemption from the time used for collateral and sent you a tax bill for the whole account.
When I was in College my brother and myself spent a summer in residential construction toting roofing and lumber up a ladder all day long. It was hot and the men gave you a bunch of #$%$ until you let them know you had enough, Another Summer was spent in a steel mill which was worse than roofing.
In the Charlotte area Mexicans do the vast majority of roofing, crawl space drainage work as well as painting and some drywall. Lumby Indians from Lumberton,NC are the premier wall board hangers. The bests Mason's are usually True Light Church Members( a great story there for later). White men do a lot of siding and fencing. Blacks are a majority of the population in Charlotte and usually or often confine there labor to the Black community with high cost and low quality IMO . But there are some Blacks with excellent work ethics and skills that write there own ticket,they usually had good parenting.
I don't believe in catering to the LGBT agenda of special treatment or special rights that everyone does not have. But I don't believe in hate , threats and mean spirited name calling.
