Re: Lemur Journal!

@White Belt Yes - Tax-advantaged accounts don't allow margin so my options (pun intended) are limited in those accounts. I do options trade in them occasionally. It just so happens I've a lot more money in my non-tax advantaged accounts then my taxable ones. For the retirement accounts, this is wher...

Re: Lemur Journal!

December 1, 2021 Net-worth: $540k (Down $16k) Spending was not tracked this month after my car parts and the Spouse Christmas shopping. Just threw my hands in the air and said okay lets just track next month. Holidays are always a killer. It was definitely one of the higher spending months in a lon...

Re: Investments Trade Log

@Seppia Visa is my 2nd largest position and I've sold puts on the way down from $220, $205, $190, and $175. The $220 put I've been rolling unfortunately. I thought Visa was a good deal at $235 so to see the stock near $190 and at its 1 year low is a crazy good buying opportunity. I've been adding wh...

@Enfire I kept thinking about your recent post and found my solution - I went ahead and just nuked all my Reddit history and just went ahead and deleted it.

Re: Lemur Journal!

Effort I've not spoke about is trying to transform from a hermit to a hermit that occasionally partakes in the community lol. Much boredom prompted me to do this finally. 1.) First time meeting some of my neighbors. For the couple we met, come to find we've a lot in common. (he also gardens, compost...

Re: Hussman shows a risk of 50-66% [US stock]market losses

I did this math already … FWIW @WFJ I beat the market in 2020 with my stock picks but have lagged this year. After taxes, about a wash. If I consider hours spent, then yes I am losing. I mostly agree with your sentiment. But my aims are not to beat the market every year. I consider the activity as t...

Re: Doom Beyond Spiral Dynamics?

For those being educated on climate change for the first time or internalizing just how bad the situation is, it is quite a devastating experience. One that throws most into a great depression. Denialism is the first defense of this realization. Most will find their own echo-chambers to cope. For in...

@M2AS Thanks for the reference. Also upon further study… Nietzscheanism is not an antithesis to Epicureanism. I made that statement before or found no use for the latter but that couldn’t be more wrong. Needless to say - I am down a philosophy rabbit hole lately. My thinking has been challenged sign...

Re: Hussman shows a risk of 50-66% [US stock]market losses

@WFJ I kind of do the 10% rule but I do it with covered calls. If the underlying blows past my strike, then I don't regret hitting max profit (at least not anymore, I did once miss out on huge upside with SQ that I think about occasionally lol) and deploying my capital elsewhere to ride the next wav...

Re: Lemur Journal!

@Gilberto Nope it does not. You could just do a double dig and add the soil amendments / manure to make a mound. I have found though that beds help keep the garden soil together and has made it easier for weed control. But it is definitely not necessary. Also I'm finding out that one of my cousins m...

Re: Stop 401k to pay off mortgage?

+1 Unemployable The Mortgage debt is of 2.5% is less than current inflation...which means your debt is literally being eaten away meanwhile your 401(k) contributions will likely grow at a rate greater than inflation while getting tax deferral treatment. Financially this is a no brainer. I wouldn't l...

Re: Semi Early Retirement Extreme?

To add to this: 1.) Some people (like my younger brother for instance) cannot maintain a job that requires compartmentalizing their true selves away for 40 hours a week for years on end. Even if it is just 5-6 years with a high savings rate. SEMI-ERE would appear to those types I think with a high s...
