    GOLD

    Nothing surprising in that article - my understanding is that he is saying that negative real interest rates cause gold to rise and positive real interest rates cause gold to fall - when real interest rates go +ve I and I have no doubt others will look for better "yield" perhaps away from gold. The question is when that will be - According to his table, based on official UK CPI figure (if you believe that) interest rates would need to be above around 5-6% nominal to start affecting gold. Do you genuinely believe that IR's are going back to anything like that soon, given the BOE (and the Fed) seem committed to use thin money printing to surpress them as long as need be and if they did rise that high it would almost certainly cause property prices to fall, thereby creating new "yielding" opportunities. If and when there is a genuine "recovery" (i.e. debt paid or written off to allow productive investment) I hope I'm smart enough to be amongst the first to start looking for new opportunities - sadly I dont see that happening anytime soon given the debt problems and the appetite for bailouts.

    +1 It's nice to see some of the froth blown off and have the price action approach good solid tech support. I always get nervous when I see spikes up (although I do enjoy them....:-))

    I'm not buying bullion as it's too far away from its EMA's (50/150) I bought a bit more GDXJ today I've been using the real price of gold (Gold:CRB) as an indicator toward profitability - the ratio has spiked above the level it was at in early 2009. Of course it could just be a panic spike which is why I'm nibbling bit by bit. Also GDXJ is just off it support level at the lower end of the range so it looked like a decent entry point, I'll increase size if price dips.

    thanks Does this not show that the price of commodities has broken out (down) against gold. The last this happened was at the major low for gold stocks in 2009, the move from there was pretty strong. Thoughts?

    Does anyone have an up to date chart of the Commodities Index:Gold - i.e. Bob Hoye's real price of Gold. I remember him talking about a high real proce of Gold being a bullish driver for miners (as they're costs are lower in relation to gold). Thanks

    My thoughts (FWIW) are that it it fails to hold the down move will be aggressive i.e. a fake breakout out falls hard

    What I'd like to know is if there is a product similar to GDXJ that is allowed in my ISA (I know some of the individual companies are but I don't have time for dud diligence on each one). I guess I should compare the holdings and management fees of T1PS to GDXJ to see how similar they are?

    I'm a Handsworth lad!! Thankfully I moved to London when I was 0 years old. My Cousin live in Sutton ColdField Brum, the ppsf is around half of that of London and IMO represents good value as the houses in this area are large and you get a lot of outside space, I've often thought that if London ppsf was the same I would have no issue with buyingc

    Kingston or Teddington may be slightly better then? I'm eventually looking to go back to Kingston as it is family friendly - trouble is lots of other people have the same idea - it's upsetting to be priced out of family houses in the town you grew up in.....

    I totally agree with this - I was about 4-5 years too late to be in a similar position although I have benefitted from the rise The reason that he knows this about them is prob because a lot of his aquaintances/ mates are those people

    In south west London (and many other places) there is a 2 tier market - family sized homes which are in relatively short supply and flats which imo are in massive oversupply, more continue to be built which is beneficial to renters like me as it should put downward pressure on rents. 2 bed flats seem to be particularly abundant. The prices for flats are still below their 2007 peak in most parts of London I reckon.
