    This was a really good interview, would be cool with much more like this instead of the big macro economic doomsayers or all the China talk, this is just market agnostic and can be used for everyone

    "Think more money is lost, anticipating a trend reversal, even as painful as a trend give back will be. Mostly just embarrassing though or it's just like emotional. It's not usually a fatal amount of money, because you've made so much in the trend to begin with. " Certainly fits the current environment in the stock market. Think long about that statement.

    Interesting interview. I like the portfolio allocation. "you divide your portfolio up to be diversified, basically 25% fixed income, 25% commodities, 25% equities and 25% currencies- " compared to the Harry Brown portfolio – 25% stocks (prosperity), 25% long bonds (deflation), 25% gold (inflation) and 25% cash (recession). The 25% gold allocation becomes the more general commodities and the 25% cash becomes currencies. DLS
