  • Why I Would Rather Buy REITs Than Buy A Rental Home For Income [View article]
    Good article with one missing piece: leverage. The typical REIT leverage is about 50%, while a home owner can leverage up to 80-90%, hence the 10-20% income return.

    Are you sure it was Bernanke but not North Korea that removed some of the risk premium from gold/silver?

  • $100K ETF & ETN Challenge: Daily Log/Updates [View instapost]
    Maybe I read it wrong. But I am looking at your "final results and trades", and I am puzzled with your math. For example, in the XLE trades, you bought 300 shares at $75.34 and sold at $75.26. How did you end up wining $24? It seems that you read the positive and negative numbers in a wrong way. The positive $2756.8 actually means that you LOST $2756.8 for the week, isn't it?

  • Unique Arbitrage Opportunity In Platinum [View article]
    It was too late when I saw this article. By now my expected return would be no more than 7%. But a win is a win is a win... So I shorted a few thousand PTM and hedged with a few hundred of PPLT.

    Thank you very much. Mr. Chiu.
