How much for the newsletter?

When you get informercial finished please post it. Make sure to include some hot girls in the commercial since I doubt there will be many viewers otherwise.

This is the newsletter, so the only fee is the wasting of your time reading all the E-R forum ads.

If you want hot girls, then change your avatar or whatever you call that picture thing to have some. Or encourage folks with hot girl avatars to post to this thread.

See you next year?

Or are you one o' them there "dirty market timers" who rebalances twice a year, despite the extra taxes & transaction costs?

LOL! 07-23-2011 12:30 PM

I am a serious market timer with a portion of my portfolio. I will announce transactions as they occur and why. I have about 7 tax-advantaged accounts available to me that I make trades in. There are no transaction costs and no taxes when using these accounts.

I have made several trades already this year, but I won't list them because you wouldn't believe them anyways. As this thread develops, you will be able to see my orders if you have real-time Level II quotes and are quick enough to look. You will certainly be able to use an intraday chart to examine the veracity of my trades.

;D Thank you! I think Eva is lovely, too.

Personally I don't like market timing (for myself, YMMV) and have managed to resist it for the most part.

We have IRAs and 401(k)s at different brokers rather than at a single broker. For example, a traditional IRA at WellsFargo and a traditional IRA at Vanguard.

An obscure advantage of multiple accounts at different financial institutions is that you can get around frequent trading restrictions and trade settlement issues easily. For example, suppose you own VCSH in his IRA and VWO in her IRA. You need to buy more VWO, so you sell VCSH and free-ride the cash to buy VWO. A day later, you need to sell the VWO you bought, but you cannot since the first buy has not settled. So you sell VWO out of the other account.

Or you sell a Vanguard (or Fidelity) fund and they say you cannot buy back into it for 60 days easily. So you simply buy back in by using a different account not at Vanguard.

German actress/model Eva Habermann. See my profile. :)

veremchuka 07-24-2011 05:25 PM

Thanks, that's quite a profile! I always thought your avatars were/are interesting. I honestly thought the avatar was you over the past months. I bet you are just as cute, maybe cuter! :dance:

DoraM 07-26-2011 06:15 PM

I put a picture in my profile so as not to be outdone by W2R ;)

W2R 07-26-2011 06:18 PM

Lovely, Dora! Is that Audrey Hepburn? I always thought she was stunning.

And no, Veremchuka, I just look like, well, like the 63-year-old woman that I am. However, a girl can dream. :laugh:

Sigh.

Ok, it is Audrey. They broke the mold when she was cast.
