    GOLD

    Looks to me like the seasonal dip may be starting, and thats a good thing for 'buy and hold' types I remain keen to buy big in late summer - a strategy that has worked well in recent years. Averaging-in over late Aug-Sept-early Oct

    GOLD

    Yes, its clearly a novelty piece, perhaps for a (rich) company HQ, a (rich) private investor etc.. If I had that much to spend on Gold, I'd just want good delivery bars and nothing any more unusual or that attracts attention. Is there any CGT advantage to it having a monetary value and a Queen's head on the coin? Probably not, I'm thinking, as the face value is in dollars (itself strange for a coin with the Queen's head). I suspect to a taxman, this is not officially a coin - it's just a block of gold cast into the shape of a coin.

    What to do and see in Brisbane this July-Sept?

    Thanks for the replies so far by posts and PM. Thanks, I really appreciate it
  7. I'm looking for a bit of advice and I know there are a lot of Aussies on the forum. I've got a 12 week job placement in Brisbane ahead from July for 12 weeks. I will have to work hard (very hard) but I am looking for advice from knowledgable GEI-ers on where to go for the odd weekend trip, or indeed what I can do in Brisbane itself on weekends. Also, anything I need to bring as an anglo-saxon brit not used to the climate, wildlife and perhaps locals (insect repellant etc.) My travel budget is OK but not extravagent. All advice appreciated

    SILVER

    I'm with you on this RH and came to the same conclusion independantly. What I would add is the seasonal benefits of each - I have a theory that silver is best for any takeoff at the September(ish) seasonal gain in bullion prices as it provides greater % gains, Gold is best 'defensively' during the summer doldrums we are now approaching for its stickinesss when gains need defending.

    GOLD

    A 'failed smackdown' pattern, although the peak-to-trough is smaller than previous intraday 'failed smackdown' patterns at around $10. Sounds quite positive for next week, but 3 days is a long time at the moment given all the bearish news around. Next market trading day is officially June of course - so was are now in doldrums season. The times to lighten up gold exposure for seasonality followers are as far as I know March (conservative) or May (more bold). I must admit to not buying the past few months at these prices, and to sitting on a growing pile of savings cash. Prior to the general election, I moved this cash into USD and CHF , expecting a hung result and a (short-term at least) fall in sterling, but will be looking for a gold price dip in these currencies over the summer to average in with more physical for my core position. Experience had taught me never to buy into strength, and while I appreciate the 'buy same time every month - its a 20 year bull run' argument, this never works for me as I tend to naturally buy at interim tops unless I act disciplined and buy into weakness. A disciplined series of buys before early September seems my likely next move.

    'Failed smackdown pattern' developing currently in NY time. In my experience, this is bullish for the week ahead.

    Gold has increased more in £ and $ terms than as a basket of currencies (USDX weighted). The kitco gold index since 2000: PS Record high in $ coming this NY pm by the looks of it

    Gold closing in on its record high in USD today. There is a jump up this morning in london hours. Anyone know why?

    GOLD

    UK stuck in a nightmare scenario of hung parliament and indecisive governance during a developing soverign debt crisis. It's a perfect storm. Even house prices are down (MoM -0.1% halifax for April, with +ve expected). 200 oz for a house by mid-summer ? (and then lower in 2012/13/14?)

    Good analysis RH, I agree with you, and am buying dollars at the moment with £ monthly savings. Can't stomach buying into the current strength of the GBP price of gold

    GOLD

    are the dates of gold option expiry, according to my calculations (December is a bit of a guess - dont understand trading holiday arrangements over festive period) Can anyone confirm? I've used this rule
  19. dietcolaaddict

    GOLD

    Does anyone know how to work out the options expiry date for december? Other months are OK, by the rule below, but there seems to be uncertainty over whats a holiday or not at the festive time. Help appreciated

    GOLD

    It's not a bad bet that the pound gets hammered too if there is a hung parliament election in the UK. New Sterling highs for a while perhaps?

    GOLD

    You may well be right warpig. I see a "failed smackdown pattern" in NY time today, which suggests to me, from past observation, of a bullish period ahead.

    GOLD

    I'm not planning on buying any gold at the moment as I'm uncertain about buying pre-doldrums. But I am thinking of loading up my Goldmoney account and swapping the £ to USD (0.5% fee) pre-election. I think gold will be lower in USD terms later this summer. I also think the £ is unrealistically strong against the dollar pre-election.

    I was worried the summer doldrums were starting today but a nice V-shape in the daily spot price says no.
