Your question was probably rhetorical, but the answer is $$$$$$$$$$$$. When you own the politicians, you are probably safe from a political attack.

Why does Mr. Soros get a free pass by not being charged with treason for funding the Antifa groups in their destruction of Federal properties to incite a civil war.

Outstanding article, Mr. Kunstler. What you’ve written could be the subject of a long book, and is covered in part in several, but this summary nails it. Well done!

One of the advantages to home schooling, even if a set curriculum is followed, is reduction in the left wing brainwashing of children.

 Gold and silver currency - What is constant proportion portfolio insurance (CPPI)
 - Our Forums - 
What is constant proportion portfolio insurance (CPPI)? https://www.freeforex-signals.com/ Understanding Constant Proportion Portfolio Insurance (CPPI) Constant Proportion Portfolio Insurance (CPPI) allows an investor to maintain exposure to the upside potential of a risky asset while offering a capital guarantee against downside risk. The result of the CPPI strategy is somewhat similar to buying a call option, but it does not use option contracts. Therefore, CPPI is sometimes referred to as a convex strategy, as opposed to a "concave strategy" as a constant mix. Financial institutions sell CPPI products on a variety of risk assets, including stocks and credit default swaps. Forex trading Signals KEY TIPS CPPI is a strategy to combine the advantage of exposure to the equity market with investments in a conservative financial instrument. This is done by assigning a specifically calculated investment percentage to a risk account. A multiplier is used to determine the amount of risk an investor is willing to take. Investors can rebalance their positions on a monthly or quarterly basis. How Constant Proportion Portfolio Insurance (CPPI) Works https://www.freeforex-signals.com/forex-signals/ The investor will make an initial investment in the risk asset equal to the value of: (Multiplier) x (value of the cushion in dollars) and will invest the rest in the conservative asset. The value of the multiplier is based on the investor's risk profile and is obtained by first asking what the maximum loss in a day of the risk investment could be. The multiplier will be the inverse of that percentage. As the value of the portfolio changes over time, the investor will rebalance according to the same strategy. https://www.freeforex-signals.com/ CPPI consists of two accounts: a risk account and a security account. As their names indicate, both accounts serve specific purposes in an individual's overall investment strategy. The risk account is leveraged with futures holdings to hedge against the downside of significant exposure to equities. The funds are dynamically transferred between the two accounts based on the economic environment. The schedule for rebalancing is up to the investor, with monthly or quarterly examples being frequently cited. Typically, CPPI is implemented over five-year periods. Ideally, the value of the cushion will grow over time, allowing more money to flow into the risk asset. However, if the buffer falls, the investor may need to sell a portion of the risk asset to keep the asset allocation targets intact. Free Forex Signals One of the problems with implementing a CPPI strategy is that you do not immediately "de-risk" your holdings when markets move in the opposite direction. A hypothetical CPPI strategy on a five-year investment time horizon would have underperformed the S&P 500 for several years after the 2008 financial crisis. Forex trading Signals CPPI example Consider a hypothetical portfolio of $ 100,000, of which the investor decides that $ 90,000 is the absolute floor. If the portfolio falls to $ 90,000 in value, the investor would move all assets to cash to preserve capital. Free Forex Signals Forex Signals Forex trading Signals If one decides that 20 percent is the maximum chance of "falling", the value of the multiplier will be (1 / 0.20), or 5. Multiplier values between 3 and 6 are very common. Based on the information provided, the investor would allocate 5 x ($ 100,000 - $ 90,000) or $ 50,000 to the risk asset, with the remainder going to the cash or conservative asset.

The most likely reason Nancy Pelosi, Hillary & Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Adam Schiff, Bill Kristol, David Frum, Dean Baquet, and five hundred other seditious political degenerates out there WANT to finish off the institutions of a federal republic ~ and whatever remains of the US economy ~ is: The alternative leaves the Hammers of Justice alive and well to prosecute them for their Criminal Activities. James, the coming Apocalyptic Event is gonna be Extinction Level. It's obvious Big Money WANTS this and has been working toward an ELE for years. Did you notice the 2020 Commemorative Quarters are stamped with the Covid-19 Bat ? It had to take The Mint at least two years to make those dies. It's just a coincidence . . . just a coincidence.

 When There are No Consequences for Anything  (7)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
Mr. Kunstler is absolutely spot on, I've been asking these same questions now for years. We are overrun with corruption and nobody seems to care. The media is in bed with the leftist and the lawbreakers, and will repeat whatever lie they hear that is damaging to the President. We are as divided as we have ever been as a country, and if we don't get control of this soon there will be blood in the streets--all over the country.

 Gold and silver currency - What Is Cumulative Return
 - Our Forums - 
Aggregate return on investment is the aggregate amount that an investment has gained or lost over time, regardless of the period of time involved. Presented as a percentage, the total profit is the raw mathematical coefficient of the following calculation: KEY TAKES https://www.gold-pattern.com/en Expressed as a percentage, total return is the total change in the price of an investment over a set period of time - total return, not annual. Reinvestment of dividends or capital gains of the investment affects its total return. Aggregate rates of return on mutual, as a rule, omit the impact of annual cost ratios and other fees on the results of the fund. Understanding the cumulative return The total return on non-dividend shares is easily calculated by determining the amount of profit or loss above the initial price. For example, investing $ 10,000 in Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) over a 10-year period ending December 31, 2018, results in $ 48,922. Excluding reinvested dividends, this is a total income of 697.99% or an average of 10.94%; it also includes two split shares. The value of dividends received during this time also adds another $ 13,611 to the profit than the initial investment. Gold Signals Gold Signals It is much more difficult to calculate the total return on a stock that reinvests dividends. In the example above, "Johnson & Johnson" reinvested dividend networks totaling $ 75,626. The aggregate profit may be misleading in this scenario, as the reinvested aggregate amount exceeds the previous example, when the total amount between the principal amount of $ 48,922 and the unpaid dividends of $ 13,611 is $ 62,533. Dividend reinvestment increases the investor's cost base and reduces the total return. For the reinvested example, the total shareholder return is 656.26% or an average of 10.64%. In comparison, the reinvested amount has a lower cumulative return, but actually gives more than the total amount of the dollar for the investor, an additional $ 13,093. Total profit and mutual fund A common way to present the "effect" of the effectiveness of mutual funds over time is to show the total return with such clarity as a mountain graph. Investors should check whether interest and / or dividends are included in aggregate profits (say marketing materials or information accompanying the illustration); such payments can be considered reinvested or simply credited as raw dollars in the calculation of total income. Gold Signals Gold Signals One notable difference between mutual funds and stocks is that mutual funds sometimes distribute capital gains to fund owners. This distribution usually occurs at the end of the calendar year and consists of the profits received by portfolio managers at the close of shares. Mutual fund owners have the opportunity to reinvest those profits that may further complicate the calculation of total profits. Total income versus compound return Along with the total return, a mutual fund or other investment usually indicates its component return. Unlike the cumulative return, the complex figure is the annual return. Gold Signals Gold Signals While aggregate returns may seem impressive than the usually lower annual rate of return, they tend to omit the impact of annual costs on the returns that an investor actually receives. The annual costs that an investor can expect include total funds ratios, interest rates on loans, and management fees. If processed on a cumulative basis, these fees can be significantly applied in aggregate returns.
