5 years CD that is liquid. Well done.

Hey..I was just giving you a real world example hoping you could do the same. Sorry you don't have any.


You jump to many conclusions to justify you views. You are correct that I did not offer an alternative. To assume that I do not have one is rather small of you.


Easy to know what asset class has done best in the past. People do use that data to predict the future but that is not investing, that's gambling to me. Lots of folk like pie in the sky. Best of luck.


If you believe that the past is not an indication of the future then only assets that would be of interest are ones that have a contractual to pay out in the future. Most asset classes are can no such obligation. Equities and other assets are about holding an assets so you can benefit from the future without knowing what the future might hold.

In conclusion...

I see nothing that says you would favor a open and honest discussion without trying to show your superior understanding. How about we agree that from where you sit you are superior and I continue to earn more then you think possible. We both win.
