Sounds like a good dilemma to have!



Short term, year or two. Only owe on the house and owe about 20% of current value on it. Financed at 3.125%, 401(k) is in good shape and being left alone. Cars paid for, no credit card debt, etc. This is just some extra cash - It is a nice dilemma but really don't want too much under the mattress - would be nice to outpace inflation at least while keeping it liquid for some market timing. Would love to spend some of it on Reloder 16.



Way to go! It sounds like you are pretty much financially bulletproof. In your case, I'd be thinking of spending some of it on a gift or a short vacay with my sweetie! Or with the kids, too if that applied. Make a memory. You've earned it. Congratulations.

If you have a place of business (not your home) put up a sign and buy pre 1965 silver for $15 on the dollar face value. That is more than any pawn shop will pay them and it is worth that even with no collector value. Don't make your home a robbery target.

About 50% divided between Eth and Btc, the rest in mostly big cap alt coins and some small cap hopefuls.

Thanks xxclaro.

You’ve covered the spectrum it appears.

I know this southern stock broker, Rene something. His daily turnover is probably over 2K. He might franchise his operation for a ride at the Golden Corral.

Bitcoin is a good one.

Another choice would be to leverage it with a low interest loan and then invest in something like real estate.

If you really like risk then short the US dollar but given the rest of world is in as big or bigger of a mess than we are it probably wouldn't turn out well.

You can bet we are in for some rough sledding. The government has so much technology now to track transactions. You can look for crypto and metal to have some huge penalties. They CANNOT allow alternative money. Remember 1933 when they outlawed gold.

The specific answer to your specific question,

Do nothing with that couple grand other than in a money market or under the mattress,

Anything that's extremely liquid,

When the drop comes, then you buy.....

Don't buy before the drop

Don't tie up the capital before the drop.

The drop means nothing. Invest now! Look at almost any stock or ETF and the drop will add up to cents.

Define "soon"


Want the winning powerball numbers also? Just my own gut feeling that we are in for a correction 'soon'. Maybe when people realize that the stimulus payments have stopped and the price of everything has increased. My guess is within a year.

I do have some in Fidelity: FDVLX, FZROX and FSAGX. They have been doing well but 'if/when" my gut correction happens I don't think those will hold up well.

This is kind of investing as a hobby money - not big bucks but growing.

Seriously thinking about Hot Sauce and Soothing Suppositories.

Think their is money to be made investing in both.
Seems like they might be interlinked products after reading the hot sauce thread....
