Ted CuddyThe "strong dollar" comment is amusing. Sure its the strongest of the shit paper currencies but it is still paper. Gold flat? I'd much rather hold gold than any more paper than necessary. Pete is spot on. The fed has boxed itself in. No rate hike. How can they? How would this economy survive a rate hike being the greatest debtor nation on the planet? Now or later, the U.S. is in for more pain and plummet of living standards than we can imagine. Its a mathematical certainty. This game is unsustainable.1 day ago

Blane LanePeter, your rate hike v. QE is such a big-gamble prediction. Gold is still flat, the dollar has been "strong." Your international mix has been spot on. So, you're 1 for 3. I am still long U.S. Equities, but will finally bail if S&P breaks through 2100, if not sooner.2 days ago
