    GOLD

    A good day for gold. A test of the $1030 high now looks very likely. I'm going to be a bit more cryptic instead of a traditional Titan or Saturn V.

    SILVER

    Well by recent years standard, the price of silver is still cheap compared to gold, although not as much as a month or so ago. PS Double-agent I do like your GDP-denominated sig. Very useful info as I read through posts.

    GOLD

    LOL. I've heard MK described as many things, but never 'sunny' before.

    GOLD

    Thanks for the insight everyone! This idea that 'debt is normal' is going to bring down the country. I'm off to become a better UK citizen by signing up to a 125% self-cert mortgage on a newbuild, and splashing out on a 4x4 chavmobile (on visa of course!) .

    Does keeping your assets in PMs damage your credit rating? I'm currently taking advantage of a local rental market slump to move to a cheaper flat but the letting agents have said my credit rating has come back as poor . I've never missed a bill of any sort for years, always paid off credit cards pronto, earn (net) earning over 8x the annual rent, have a years rent in cash-ISAs (my only exposure to poisonous sterling) . Is it the untraceable sums disappearing from my current account to fund PMs that are denting my credit rating? (For the record I keep physical gold bullion and allocated silver through GM)

    SILVER

    I might average in a bit more if silver dips in the next few hours like it has in previous days.

    SILVER

    Good thinking warpig, I may do the same. Lets see what happens tomorrow, any idea how early the rate cut is 'priced in' before Thurs 12 noon?

    SILVER

    I'm currently waiting for a dip in £ price to buy a large amount (for me anyway) more. I'm trying to be patient and learn from past mistakes of buying into strength and ignoring trends in the $/£ exchange rate.

    GOLD

    That's got to be the current winner of 'line of the year'

    GOLD

    I think now may be a good time for profit-taking. Personally, I am a buy-and-hold guy and I will put up with any short-term rally in sterling for now.

    SILVER

    Nice link Pixel8r, but I don't like the website's conclusion of the current ratio as low, mid or high. Look at my post - #209 in this thread. I think the ratio is currently high not mid for this bull run in PMs. On a separate note, I was about to convert a reasonable amount of £ to silver, but I guess I better wait now for a dip.

    Sorry to stop the music while the party is in full swing guys and gals, but take a look at this 2009 Gold Forcast article by Nadeem Walayat of Market Oracle which was posted yesterday. http://marketoracle.co.uk/Article8409.html OK, he got the short term bit very wrong But he warns of a high in March followed by a major dip by mid-summer.

    Note to the new president: You are supposed to get the Working Group to smack it down on a friday afternoon!

    . Comment removed due to being a numpty (must be the new record price going to my brain)

    GOLD

    If you live your life in GDPland, then PMs are just about the only option at the moment. Interest rates almost nil, stock market going down and look at the $ exchange rate - 1.3887! Sterling is no longer toast, its now carbonized. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbonization

    SILVER

    Here is a chart showing the daily distribution of gold-to-silver ratio for each day since Jan 1 2000. The ratio currently favours buying silver instead of gold.

    SILVER

    Hi guys - I want to do some analysis this weekend. Has anyone got a link to daily silver prices ($) going back 10 years+ in an excel file?

    Some good news... There is a new superhero in town aiming to serve and protect the property bear in 2009. Nicely done clip, featuring all your favourite VI baddies. http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=aQDrvSlc5QM
  24. I'm happy to make a contribution after payday! Charities, not-for-profit groups etc. find January the toughest month in the UK to get a donation! I think Mon 19th January is officially the most depressed day of the year - cold, dark, start of the week, nowhere near payday, Easter still a long way off.

    UK House prices: News & Views

    Enclosed is a great article about sportstars malinvesting in UK property and Icelandic banks. How long till the crowds chant "We all live in Robbie Fowler's repossessed house" ? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/property/articl...rty-market.html Talking of his financial adviser, a certain Mr J. Power, former world super-middleweight boxing champion Glenn Catley says 'I'd like to rip Power's head off and spit in the hole,' having paid £370,000 for a one-bedroom flat () at London's Grosvenor Waterside, Victoria, in 2005. That's one man I wouldn't get angry, Mr Power.
