Bloomberg/BW astutely points out today that the long-term cap gains rate on gold and metals ETFs is 28%, or 40% higher than on regular stocks at 20%.

Ouch.


Did Congress overturn Obamacare this afternoon?

If not, the real top rate capital gains tax rate on regular stock is 20 + 3.8 (Medicare investment tax) = 23.8 percent of Pay Your Fair Share.
