This is something that is really bothering the hell out of me.
I've always done "okay" over the long run with my money. But now I have no idea.

Yes gold is always an option and I have quite a bit in it already, but I don't know what else to do and my broker doesn't seem to confident in much of anything either.

Housing hasn't bottomed yet.
Commercial loans haven't really started yet.
Government flood gates are just starting to open with coming tax increases.
I don't have much of a rosy outlook on things right now.

gold and silver will never be worth more then sex.





:edit:
Studies have shown that there is a direct link between buying gold and silver for a female and having a good sexlife.

I don't either. My wife and I are finally to a point in our lives where we have a savings, getting rid of the small credit cards that are left, then it's just student loans and the house. No car payments... nothing.

I feel like I shouldn't have worked so hard. And now I am worried about a cash savings being worth a shit if we ever need it. Don't even get me started on the business.

I know I'm overreacting, but Jesus... this is stupid.

I'm just going to keep the "nose to the grindstone" attitude. Although I don't have faith in our current elected officials, I still have faith that our country was founded on the right principles and that our registered voters will wise up. In the mean time, I'm staying with moderate risk investments like mutual funds and no risk (low return) CD's. IMO a guaranteed safe low return is better than a risky high return. And, the older I have gotten, the more I'm a believer in this. Unfortunately, I don't have time in my daily life to watch things close enough to jump in and out of quick turn arounds. And, although I'm not sure the market has bottomed out, I think property will come back over the long run.

OH, and Stan, praying for guidance is never a bad thing.

I hate to say it but canned food and fuel are the best things hoarders put away for a rainy day. I have a couple sites where these guys talk about their 3-5 year supplies of food and water... and endless bullets.

This is why you have no credibility and nobody takes you seriously.

1st if you where really serious about the market you would never take the advise of a broker. That's a person who wants you to make trades and probably has no investment in the market, he makes money when you change your position.

2nd gold is an option, if you look at gold historically you'll find that in the early 80s gold actually went over $1000.00 an ounce on the futures market, the other thing is when they (brokers and the media) start talking about gold at $2000.00 its a good indication it might be ready to take a shit. Remember when they started talking about $200.00 a barrel oil it fell from $140.00 to under $50.00.

3rd Housing hasn't bottomed but you don't always get the exact low, and it all depends on the reason and type of investment you plan on.

And finally, you never said if I posted a closer skin color to Obama than black.
