Did NOT see it coming.

I am deeply concerned about some of the gross inequality in investment performance among retail investors. While some portfolios have experienced 6 figure percentage gains, others haven't been so lucky. The disparity in returns across investment portfolios is estimated to be at an all-time high, with the very top portfolios earning in excess of 200% annually, and some of the least fortunate portfolios losing 50% or more of their equity. We urgently need to address this imbalance in America or we risk creating a society with a small group of elite overlords with consistently positive investment returns, while ordinary average Joe's continue to lose money in the markets. This is why I encourage congress to consider the "Equal Opportunity in Investments Act" (or EOIA), which introduces  a windfall tax on annual profits in excess of 20% of account equity. At the end of each tax year, unfortunate investors will be permitted to claim a refund for any loss in excess of 5%.

Dude.....leave MDB alone. Can't you see he's deeply concerned?

MDB, if a person was really concerned, they would focus on the central planning (cental banking) that results in the current disparity in wealth as opposed to a (centrally planned) tax on investment profits.

So what you are saying is that I can put all my money in Apple puts and if Apple doesn't blow up I can recoup my losses?  Hmmmmmm bet it all on black baby!

Mon, 10/01/2012 - 09:48 | 2844756 MillionDollarBonus_

You can only recoup annual losses in excess of 5%. So for example if you were to lose 15% on apple puts in a single year, you would be refunded for 10% of your starting acccount equity.

In the spirit of Obama, I strongly suggest that your proposal be recast from Equal Opportunity to Equal Results. All investment income should be accumulated into a single government program and redistributed equally to all people residing in the US. That's the only fair way to truly spread the wealth around. Don't be so half-hearted in your recommendations.

exactly. How can anyone be truly equal when other people are making better or worse returns or more or less income? For Christ's sake, why do we allow some people to be 7 feeet tall and play basketball or 6"7 and 320lbs and play professional football? It's completely unfair. All those bigger and smaller than the perfect size should be exterminated to level the playing field for normal middle class people!

The only question is, when does this insanity cause gold to start rising in $100 increments and silver in $5 increments when these stupid rumors are dropped.

We will eventually get there but not for a while. Now is the time to accumulate. When you start seeing those huge leaps up that will be when the shit is hitting the fan and then it's mostly too late.

Got me a few more this morning at a very nice price.

gold & silver already did that in 2011. Why worry? It doesn't matter. Silver can't stay down long while gold rises. Gold CAN'T avoid rising long-term because long-term and short-term the fiat currency + bond market cluster-fuck is truly destroyed.

It's momentum-driven, data-driven, exceeding the capacity of all computers and all programmers. It's the market itself. It's reacting to the fraud & corruption acting within it, like a giant hive-mind. It has a repeating pattern of restoration, like homeostasis. Take a look and think about it.

LOL. We heard all that at 500, 850, 1000 and 1500. Gold is going a lot higher than $2000.

This Golden Bull will stomp everything in sight in due time. Sinclairs 3500 target seems rather conservative now considering QEternity.

The problem is that everything we consume will be rising as well. At least we'll hold on to our purchasing power with metal.

What will milk and gasoline be per gallon with $3500 gold?

That is assuming gold and silver are not at present manipulated downwards by the establishment.

It's hard to manipulate when you don't have the real thing while more and more parties demand delivery.  It's hard to keep power if you don't use the printing press to keep key commodity prices in check via manifold subsidies, thus surpressing the price of milk and eggs.  All roads lead to gold.  It's hard to brainstorm any circumstance right now that ISN'T bullish for the money metals.

What will milk and gasoline be per gallon with $35M gold?

After listening to the Evans interview, I should raise my target...

What will milk and gasoline be per gallon with $35Q gold?

Let's see...  if gold is $35,000,000,000,000,000 an ounce, I expect gas to be $1,000,000,000,000 a gallon.  A $1T bill with Obama on front...better known as an ObamaBuck.

The price of milk will remain fixed at slightly under $4.00. Finding any on store shelves will be a problem, though.
