    Re: FDIC R.I.P - Eric Janszen

    actually I'm at +6.0% annual for 5 years per Vanguard. Not sure what the 10 year return is as I was into real estate back then and just starting. This return was obtained simply by getting out early last year.

    With a 20 year time horizon I don't have to be perfect. But @ 2-3% I'll need to work until I'm 100+.

    Also, within the 401K limitations it does me no good to hear about buying gold or oil.

    But then I have a lot of oil stock outside the 401k. Let's hope the future is bright for the integrateds.

      if you have Fidelity as your 401k manager they have a little known option available called Brokerage Link. Basically you put your money into an account and you can buy anything you want - you're no longer limited to company selected investment options.

      It's been a lifesaver for me since the company options are a pitiful collection of all long mutual funds. They don't advertise it very well though so I've turned on lots of co-workers to that since I found out about it. If you don't have Fidelity maybe your custodian has something similar.

There isnít that much money. Quadrillion, with not an M or a B or a T, but a Q. Thatís US$1,000,000,000,000,000.00."

          Hey Fred,
          Was that the Goldman Gold posting? Or is there something else yet to come (hoping).

The long runs of repeated '01' and '00' suggest to me that this is not an actual encoded sensible message at all - is that so?
            It's encoded in 100% pure ricket. I just hit 0s and 1s randomly on the keyboard, and once I got a good number of them, I just copied and pasted them in a significant manner. So yes, your statement about it not being a sensible message is 100% accurate. ;)

            Or do I perhaps guess whether or not maybe knowing whether this can or can't be quite not true to some extent or the other (or not) is actually readable?

              Just a point - Brokerage Link is not a general feature of all 401K plans with Fidelity. Your plan administrator gets to decide. My sense after talking with a Fidelity rep yesterday is that this is an uncommon feature. My three Fidelity accounts are all completely restricted.

              Crap.

                  Next we do a global analysis, based on recent research from Goldman Sachs, HSBC, Roubini, Larry Meyer, and the NY Fed.

                  Then we do a per-asset class analysis.

                  Finally, we do a reallocation based on all of the above.
