Well done, sir!
In January, I shorted the dollar by taking out an enormous fixed-rate 30-year mortgage.
Now Skeptical CPA has bested my trade on several fronts.
1) He got an even lower fixed rate than I did thanks to the global financial panic pushing Treasuries to all-time low rates.
2) He bought in Texas, where real estate is not nearly as overvalued as in California.
3) He bought in Texas, which is not facing California's fiscal and economic meltdown.
Skeptical CPA, we salute you!
