I hear you on the tax forms... governments love to complicate matters. No way to easily get around the FX issue either. My portfolio is weighted ~50% US stocks which was hard to bear when CAD was moving up against USD for the last few years. Now that it's reversed it's working in my favour (and obviously against you), but with stock price moves of 6% in one day it's good on either side of the border. No specific news out makes this huge gain today on 4x ave volume a bit suspicious... will be interesting to see where it goes heading into year-end.. I only sold 25% of my position. I may just have to sell more if this hits $40.
I guess they figure their job is done. Good riddance

Screw that useless shiny metal... Russia produces close to half the world's palladium and a large amount of platinum too. These precious metals are crucial to the automotive and chemical processing industries. They also are the third largest producer of nickel used in stainless steel. So Russia is a key supplier of three key metals that the industrialized world cannot live without. Sorry pal, gold is for fools.
I've been investing in Russia for close to 8 years now. I certainly don't need lessons from the likes of you about how Russia works.
You post this silly reference to Russia in 1998 implying a repeat and you accuse me of knowing nothing? get lost.
Permabears drooled for months in anticipation of the end of QE. When QE ended the world did not end. Now permabears are drooling in anticipation of the first rate hike. I think they will be disappointed yet again when rates finally go up.
No it's NOT okay. Rule #1 clearly states this.

Well we obviously have different views of where the economy is headed.
In any case, do you agree with my assertion that if government had worked closely with the Fed instead of playing circle jerk in their own twisted little world, that the country would have pulled out of the recession much more quickly and with much less long-term financial damage? As I see it, government failed the people, NOT the Fed.
If the president and congress had stepped up to the plate and worked in coordination with the Fed then the hole would not be nearly as deep. Despite this, I think the worst is behind us, not ahead of us.
Certainly that was important, but by no means did it account for the sustained recovery that followed. Obama and Congress have been pretty much a Circus act compared to the Fed in terms of competence
Don't you mean despite Obama's leadership? As I see it the performance of the Potus and Congress has been underwhelming on almost every level. With fiscal policy all but absent, the Fed was left to lift the heavy weight and single-handedly pulled the USA out of the ditch.
I think Obama hates Putin and Russia just like you do. Mrs. Merkel .on the other hand sees a glimmer of hope in Russia. I don;t pretend to know who is right. That said I think you're right... Obama is much more shallow than he would have people believe and as you stated he is simply trying to garner votes for his party in the next election. Your pal Jeb would be a fitting if disappointing successor to continue the heritage of the dumbazz Bush dynasty. I'd put him on par with the likes of Mr. Steven Harper who governs Canada, if not worse. The public gets what they deserve I suppose.
What a truly sad day it would be if someone won such a prestigious award simply for not being an ignoramus like w. That said, I don't believe that is why He won it. I suspect there was an ulterior motive (dare I say conspiracy) to award him the prize, since there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the committee was not lacking in much more suitable candidates for the prize.
If you succeed in making that Q appear I will congratulate you on a job well done, but until that time you are just another silly Loony making meaningless prognostications. Go play with your alien buddies and their shiny DUD gold-plated weapons you freak.The God loves you.
I'm not that old, but I do know it was one fukkked up time. And to use Obama's claim to fame... It's Time For Change. When he was elected he seemed to be The Man who could deliver that change but I grew doubtful of that Claim To Fame when he won a Nobel Peace Prize for doing exactly ZERO to prove he deserved it. Now it's the 9th inning and he has to step up to the plate and hit a home run or else it's GAME OVER.
Did Obama indirectly throw Russia an olive branch with his move to re-establish relations with Cuba? Or was that rather a a branch thrown at Putin's bike wheel? Maybe Obama is worthy of that Nobel Peace prize after all... somehow I doubt it.
