Greetings ataloss :) I think whoever voted for execution may have been joking (torture got several votes too after all) Yes but I do deserve some form of torture don't you think? :lol: After all I've made some whopping mistakes since we started this place. The good news is I haven't made any lately...

Greetings SG :)
I believe that the form of torture should be that he is forced to continue managing this site. If that's not punishment, I don't know what is.

I accept. :wink:

Greetings Norbert :) ES, I'm going to hold you to this. I have no problem at all with your post. I can't verify all the math but the presentation was great. You spoke to the points of the argument and kept it at that level. You stated your opinion in a mature way. That's all anyone can ask and we g...

Greetings John :) From our investigations, rebalancing adds nothing except in times of high valuations. And even then, it adds very little. The big payoff is from sitting on the sidelines, waiting for conditions to improve. TIPS and ibonds make this possible. Otherwise, we would have to pay a lot o...

Greetings Norbert :) Let's not get carried away. I was not targeting you personally it was just a general observation. My concern is that every time I write, "No, that's not true", or "History doesn't bear that out", or "If X is so, then Y must also be so" when Y is obviously false, then I am going...

Greetings John :) Peteyperson's original idea was to use up his entire TIPS holdings if necessary. If the bear market were to continue, he still would be satisfied. He would have come through the first ten years OK. [But not everyone would agree. That is the reason that I have considered other ladd...

I was thinking of asking people what valuable insight they haved gleaned from jwr (but that would be rude probably)

Oh now I understand. Yes someone might take it that way. :wink:

Greetings ataloss :) so es do you agree with jwr's decision to ignore volatility wrt tips prices? I think that was in the ballpark of the question I was asking. also are there questions that must not be asked of jwr- might be a help to nfs and myself I'm not sure I understand what you've said here....

Greetings unclemick :) I seem to have missed something - ? isn't the whole point of a ladder to sell bonds(of whatever kind) as they come due. Who cares about market vs NAV in the stretch? Either you have missed something, or I have. Lets not discount either possibility. :wink: But the idea of this...
