    I agree with you about BV - the convenience of instant sell/buy must be weighed against the risks of state intervention. My feeling is that clued-up small investors may now be choosing more physical at the expense of BV/Goldmoney or even ETFs. It is all about trust (or lack of it) - in the state, banks and the law. Just has trust in the financial system as a whole has been reflected in the gold price, I think the change to holding physical is the next logical step and reflects even greater distrust. Interestingly, if someone sold gold in BV/Goldmoney and then bought physical, it would not affect the price at all but I believe that there is a hidden 'trust bonus' attached to physical which although not visible at the moment, will show itself in the future.

    "This has been a speculative fund-driven futures rally," says Jon Nadler, a veteran analyst at Kitco Metals Inc. in Montreal. In other words, traders who play in the futures markets are betting on higher gold prices. But they aren’t interested in owning the actual metal. Gotta love Jon Nadler - works for a PM dealer and makes a living trying to discourage people from buying. One of the best contrarian indicators on the planet. Do the opposite to Nadler's advice and you will not go too far wrong IMO.

    I like the look of them - interesting that they are 1/4 Oz and not a metric measure. A friend of mine in Russia recently bought a stash of them.
  4. Permission to call Wisebear names is GRANTED. A good idea - you had initially struck me as a blinkered, slow-thinker - and arrogant with a name like wisebear but this shows promise. I have come across people in the past that I under-estimated at first - later to be proven wrong so perhaps I am a slow-learner!

    700 GBP ahoy! Where is fitkid with relevant pictures? Oh, I forgot he has been banned for a day.
  6. +1 So many people are now transfixed on the collapse (apart from those who think it will all be alright!) and how to preserve earned wealth that it is hard to focus on what lies ahead. Pseudo-environmental projects and businesses which are now encouraged by the old rotten banking system, have suckered-in many decent people into thinking that both 'growth' and sustainability are possible.

    If I recall, cdswamp identified Ambrose Evans as an Intel plant. The last series of article written by him would seem to back-up cdswamp's claim.
  8. After certain adjustments, our line-up now is as follows: Moderator/Administrators: G0ldfinger No6 halcyon (temp) romans_holiday (temp) Super_Admins DrBubb Steve_Netwriter Putting the fox in charge of the hen-house does not generally end well for the chickens.
  9. Yes, a very good idea - it would work like natural selection - bring it on. Unfortunately, I do not think anyone is listening.

    $1000 seems a long way off in the rear-view mirror now.
  11. Зачем немецкий язык? I am tired now - please vote to ban me.
  12. You have disappointed me again - why not have the decency to say clearly what is on your mind without this oblique approach? For the record, you compared my assertation that Churchill was a war-monger with pixies at the bottom of the garden. I understand that you have an incomplete knowledge about the events surrounding the start of the war and presumably this is because your sources of information come from allied 'historians'. I do not blame you for this but I would urge you to consider looking at archived newspapers from Hungary, Poland, Germany and the Soviet Union (which cooperated with Germany and grabbed half of Poland) for some alternative views. The language barrier of course is a problem for the historian but some books are translated into English. It may interest some readers of this forum that large areas of Germany were 'absorbed' into Poland at the end of the war and the German inhabitants were deported or murdered.
  13. I would like to propose that Schaublin be banned - he will then stop wasting so much time with foolishness on GEI. Those in favour say aye
  14. I agree with you on this one - there is the smell of hypocrisy in the air. Let's start a poll for who should be suspended/banned
  15. fitkid, I really admire your talent for rounding-up this stuff at short notice! I take my hat off to you
  16. Amazing - in microcosm, aliveandkicking is Western society! Bad stuff is happening - help we need a 'strong' leader. Please do not ban aliveandkicking - we need him.
  17. BIGMAN, I feel annoyed with myself that I allowed your display of ignorance to irritate me. I do genuinely feel sorry for you as you seem to be stalled in your spiritual development.
  18. I half expected a moronic post from you about this. Why don't you acquire some knowledge instead of spending your time parroting the ideas instilled in you by others?
  19. Some good points made but I disagree about Churchill - he was a war monger who sabotaged all attempts at peace. His Ego driven desire to be needed, caused the continuation of a war which eventually led to the deaths of perhaps sixty million people and laid the foundations for the corruption and eventual death of freedom in Europe.
  20. Everyone constructs an imperfect model of the world in their own mind through a narrow tunnel of the senses. If we recognise how limited our view is, we can begin to learn. A forum that is designed for economic discussion will attract mainly those people concerned with acquiring wealth but also some who may be interested in economics only as a part of the greater picture of human behaviour. Life changes, interests diverge, people move on. I find fewer interesting views here of late. With a system in place where posters are encouraged to 'run off and tell Mum' that another poster has upset them or used 'naughty' words, a bland arena is assured.

    No, I would not like to stick my neck out but I feel that (using fashion-speak) 1250 is the new 1000

    Good idea apart from the fact that the debt is owed by the West to the East and rumour has it that the US does not have much gold left.

    My take on it 1140 (yawn) 1200 mild interest 1500 buckle up! 2000 obvious 3000 mild to moderate interest 4000 reasonable prices approaching Followed shortly thereafter by - "No, I will not exchange my ounce gold coin for your one million (a short time later) one billion (an even shorter time later) one trillion US dollar note - are you mad!"
