Looks like real estate is the new gold. Makes sense with all this job loss, no?

Only if you can pay for it outright... carrying a note might bit you in the end....

I've wondered about that. With hefty inflation (which seems inevitable) won't the price of real estate also go way up?
Current 10 yr. mortgage rate is at 2.036%. Inflation is going to be way higher than that.

Never say never, but yes historically, real estate goes up and is a hedge against 'inflation' (which as, we all know is rampant money printing).

However, if you have a mortgage and lose your ability to pay on it.... you're just as exposed as everyone else.

If you have an income stream to service a loan you're foolish not to lock in a 2.36% mortgage on at least one place. Especially if you're expecting inflation to outrun that 2.36%. And the bigger the better.

Typically it lags because rents can't reprice quickly enough to service major price growth. Typically...?! we seem to be in a brave new world and it leads... so WTF over?

Locking in fixed long term could make it all make more sense but we can't do that.5 years Max and at a penalty.

Care to explain that one, Zed? And how I can profit from it? :beer:

Virtually no one here, probably means that gold will take off after Easter.

Not an exact science but better than climate science!

I'm thinking of going full time, got a nice little straight jacket picked out. It will probably boost my income if I discard my last shreds of rationality and join the fray.

Fingers are tired from posting the last couple of days. Everyone who was going to buy has already bought. Any dips next week are buys.

dollar/yen near multi-year support, just a bit oversold

Adam Hamilton:
The bottom line is the major silver miners just achieved some of their best financial results ever in Q4, despite waning production. Their revenues, earnings, and operating cash flows soared to at-least-19-quarter record highs on better prevailing silver and gold prices. And that massive profits growth is likely to accelerate even more in Q1, with silver continuing to grind higher on balance despite gold's extended correction.


That will force valuations dramatically lower, leaving this sector more attractive to mainstream institutional investors. And silver and silver stocks will increasingly return to favor as the next bull uplegs in gold and gold stocks grow. So this silver realm will likely see major capital inflows in coming months, catapulting silver-stock prices much higher. Big coming gains are totally justified given silver miners' strong fundamentals.

They’re buys only if you haven’t already bought all that you can buy. I’d like to buy on some dips next week but I can’t buy more than I’ve already bought.

"This Looks Like The Stock Market Peak" Warns Macro Analyst | Wolf Richter​


Macro analyst Wolf Richter is confident we are living in the largest asset price bubble ever blown. And the recent staggering run-up in prices in stock, housing, commodities and Bitcoin convince him that we are currently at the market's peak...to be followed by a painful correction.

VIX lowest since Feb 2020.
Maybe a contrarian trade to be made.

I'm pretty sure we've passed the bottom in junior and intermediate mining shares. I'm having intermittent FOMO panics all day.

We are many months off the bottom in most of the miners I would even think about buying. September and November were the lows the pros who were afraid to buy then are crowing about picking this recent bottom as the lows. Take a look at CDE SILJ HL.

Don't forget the amateurs that were "afraid to buy then and are now crowing about picking the recent bottom". I believe last week would have been a good entry point for many of the stocks I picked. But I tried to catch that falling knife, and failed.
Lancers, you feel there's another leg down overall?

You pretty much have to have some participation in the metals here. Once Silver crosses $30 all in. Bitcoin might trade a great deal higher before the next bear market but the easy gains have already been made.

I know I said a while back I got out of everything paper, but I changed my mind like 48 hours later. Those are the 4 I diversified into, and so glad I didn't just put it all in PSLV.

PSLV will be fine. You didn't expect a tracker fund to keep up with mining stocks did you?

No, I did expect it to be less volatile. Seriously, I'm about even on the other 3, still down ~9% on it.

The "gold guru" Greg Weldon has closed his gold subscription service. Sign of a bottom?
Claims he doesn't have time for it with his main paid service taking all of his recent time.

The water is warm ish, we've had floods on the central New South Wales coast and there's a lot of fresh water in it. Normally the water would be turquoise in those photographs. Today it's the tea colour of the lakes upstream from Port Stephens. I'm not complaining though, it's keeping the kids busy for hours and hours at a stretch!
