    my children, my wife (most of the time), my portfolio
  1. Thanks. I saw that on consa's site, I wonder if there will be much capital gains left for the BTLers by then.
  2. Thats very reassuring. Sold my home in late 2003 and then converted sterling proceeds to gold/oil and Canadian equity over the subsequent 8 months. Looks like I managed to get fairly close to the peak (for once).

    Gold: the Bull's thread

    I heard that last night, seems that by this morning, the Iranians were saying something different. Good US production figures are hinting at more rate increases. Can the consumer handle it?

    Gold: the Bull's thread

    Some German paper has reported that Iran has accepted the package of incetives. Oil dropped a dollar on the news. So much for fear premium. Gold is also reacting to the rising US dollar as a haven of "safety" in these troubled times. Good opportunity for Ben to cut rates.

    You're a brave man shorting crude going into hurricane season.

    ...or more precisely, how can you function in a world with $100+ barrel oil.

    Gold: the Bull's thread

    My, my, how times have changed. A few years ago the US dollar was the safe haven investment of choice. Gold was a barbarous relic to be shunned at all costs. Cost indeed!

    Gold: the Bull's thread

    FED raised 1/4 point. Indicated further tightening may be necessary, "may" being the operative word. Some had expected 1/2 point. or 1/4 and another in August. August looks less likely now. Gold settles at just below $600 as the dollar sinks.

    Uranium: Price is booming

    I believe uranium may well begin to outperform oil as an energy investment in the next few years. Tight supply, long mine lead times and a rush for the nuclear option from every direction imply a rapidly rising price for the raw material. Here is an interesting column about the four great commodities: gold, silver, oil and uranium. http://www.moneyandmarkets.com/press.asp?r...d=292&cat_id=6&
  13. Bought a boatload at US$38. US$42.64 at present. Nice tidy (paper) profit pour moi. Merci Cameco. Uranium supply will be tight for years to come, even if no new reactors are announced. Plus gold to boot.
  14. http://www.bradenton.com/mld/bradenton/new...ws/14379180.htm ..or costly dometic oil, for that matter.... Problem is, WHERE ARE THE DIESEL CARS!?!?!?!?!?!
  15. The article claims near 100% efficiency, by which I take it to mean the unit emits radiation only in the visible spectrum. Can't get more efficient than 100%.
