It's just one of those things I've come to expect. Much as the sun rises in the morning, you can expect Pud to lose money.
Finishing my taxes and have the conference championship games on in the background.
Also, it's time to kill the Geico gecko. He had a good run but he's getting annoying.
Sounds about right. Those Subway commercials are horrible. First breakfast, now those awful looking pizzas, what the heck is Subway doing??? No wonder fast food sales are down.
U Street probably has more homos now than Dupont because it is cheaper to live and most millenials are poor as s***. The area around Dupont Circle is not too bad but if you north and east of there there are tons of homos. South of Dupont Circle attracts a lot of the GWU kids and young professionals.
Puddy's Georgetown is off M Street so it sounds like he does know the area.
U Street metro is at U/11th and from there I walked to Connecticut Ave rather than transferring lines. It was all homos until I got to M/14th (Thomas Circle). That is 3 blocks west and 7 south. What a s***hole our nation's capital is.
U Street is also the home of the loser HBCU Howard University so maybe that's part of it. I think there are more black homos than any other race. Just look at what Atlanta has come. Atlanta probably has more homos than Frisco these days.
Well, I just did it two ways and there's a whopping $138 difference on my Schedule D. Probably a $3 difference on my tax return. I guess I only have to worry about an audit if the IRS finds out I voted for Romney. What a joke.
What's everyone drinking for tonight? It seems like a lot of people are celebrating St. Patty's day tonight.
I doubt I'll have any of the traditional Irish drinks (Guiness, Irish Car Bombs, etc.) outside of maybe a shot of Jamison. So far, I'm pre-gaming and have had a Bells Two Hearted Ale and Goose Island Honkers Ale. XT loves his midwestern brews... must be the lake water.
What a joke. There is literally nothing out there on the tax treatment for these products. I'm mainly talking about stuff like UVXY, DGAZ, DGLD, etc. What's worse is that Interactive Brokers just throws all of this #$%$ onto form 8949s on the forms that don't get sent to the IRS. So I've spent most of my day figuring out which products are commodities or futures based (1256 contracts), precious metals based, etc.
It gets even MORE confusing on s*** like the SPY or the IWM vs. the SPX or the RUT. There is NO CLEAR GUIDANCE on the tax treatment for the ETFs. I've done a lot of reading and it seems like people report IWM and SPY options using the 60/40 rule and others report them as traditional equities. #$%$??? Then there's the TNA, which again has no guidance in the prospectus but since it's swap based, I'm assuming it's subject to traditional short/long term gains. How are you guys handling this stuff?
This is only for full time traders? Do you know any good resources regarding this type of information? I'm a few years away but this is something I'd like to do going forward.
I imagine if you're a full-time trader, you end up saving a LOT of money by living in a state with no income tax. With that said, it seems to make sense to live in Florida, Tennessee, Texas, New Hampshire, Nevada, Alaska, Washington, Wyoming or South Dakota.
What is the reason some of you guys don't live in one of these states? For example, the board's self-proclaimed legendary trader, Market.Kibble, lives in Oregon, which has an absurdly high tax rate, of 9-9.9% for capital gains (further proving his fraud if you ask me). That is a significant amount of money if you are a full-time trader (and a plumber on the side just for kicks).
Anyway, when I retire in a few years and trade full time, I am planning on moving to Florida.
Gold will pull back and form an inverse H&S. Buy all you can at that point or buy tons of miners. I can't wait.
Since the actual day is on a Monday, there will be a lot of celebrating tonight. Who here plans on partying or drinking? I'm sure all the micks in Puddy's part of the country will be getting smashed tonight. Happy St. Patty's day everyone.
I don't remember the Yahoo boards back then but Yahoo was indeed a great portal at the time. It was well organized and easy to browse the internet. I think Yahoo funded a significant part of Google and had the opportunity to buy them outright but passed on it. I wonder why they did that although maybe it wasn't obvious Google would be the innovative company they have become back then.
I remember the awesome ranked Yahoo Pool games too and they managed to even screw that up. Yahoo WAS the internet back then and is a far cry from where they used to be.
Blacks need to realize that Barry is NOTHING LIKE THEM. Only the welfare queens still like Barry. He is the worst POTUS ever.
There is at least another 30% sharing a small place with friends. Even the people my age that I know (mid-late 20s) who own a place, rent it out. Barry is the biggest loser ever.
