    GOLD

    I do not know that there can be any really - so much obfuscation that I certainly would be skeptical of any published data. As for the other question, my belief is that central banks are buying gold because like you or me, they have an opportunity to swap paper for gold while there are still those willing to do so!

    GOLD

    I know this question was aimed at GOldfinger but I'd like to comment too. Like you, I have spent some time researching the situation in the late 1970s and do not believe that the current state of affairs is comparable. You wrote: I am not sure that the numbers of people who make that leap of faith will ever grow beyond a small minority I agree, and that is the pity of it. In the not too distant future, when the burden of debt creates currency crises, and savers see their hard-earned wealth evaporate, the bulk of the gold will be owned by the criminal banks that currently run the fractional reserve ponzi scheme. They are gradually buying gold from weak hands - who are happy to have made a paper profit. Questions I ask myself include: Who is accumulating gold now? What kind of payment will be accepted world-wide for valuable energy, food and resources? Why does Russia take gold in payment for minerals sent south to China? Look around the world from China to India - from the middle East to America and you will see the global perspective. The average Joe does not know anything about what is occurring globally - and that is why he is happy to sell-off his gold jewelery for a pittance.

    GOLD

    For universal use, I would go with a mixture of Krugerrands (most common 1oz bullion coin) Sovereigns and mini 24k ingots such as Pamp Suisse 1g 5g 10g. Edit: Laura, I am shocked that you are in paper-gold!

    Are we not all supposed to be using flying cars and working a few hours a month by now? That was what I was authoritatively told as a child in the 70's. Where is the trend in immortality starting? Can anyone do it? Is there a refund if it does not work?

    Gotta love Realistbear. 22 000 posts since 05 and he still does not understand. Perhaps he would be better advised doing more reading and less posting. In 05 I was just beginning to become interested in economics. Since then, I have sold property (Summer 07) and bought PMs with the goal of being able to buy a small holding. I am much closer to my goal thanks to seeing through people like RB and looking at real facts - thanks to many knowledgeable posters here like Pixel8er, GOldfinger and many others.

    I am not a gold bug - more of a coal bug really - I just don't have the room to store the stuff.

    So much time and effort spent on alchemy. If the sum of all human wisdom, fear, greed and stupidity was factored in with black-swan events and ponzi-scheme economics then integrated with market manipulation (allegedly) and that equation is represented by a squiggly line, I would love to meet the person that can figure out where the line will be on three consecutive Wednesdays.

    Message from CID Due to the high volume of orders to be shipped please note that deliveries might be delayed by several days. Thank you for your understanding. . Hmmm. .

    Water as fuel for cars

    I heard that sea water is useable but worries were expressed about depleting the oceans so the idea was shelved.

    Someone knows something in Asia - as I write, gold up GBP 25/ oz to GBP 866 What did cgnao say about 900 GBP?

    GOLD

    I think the allure of a quick paper profit can be strong - but if thought through, how can that profit be stored? Professional and semi-professional traders here believe they can anticipate movements and make a profit - some (lucky) will and some (unlucky) will not but those who just hold will preserve their purchasing power - and will probably increase it into the future - they will also not have the extreme stress associated with high stakes gambling - although some people are born gamblers and love it.

    SILVER

    Someone has hoovered up all the silver 1kg coins on CID - (Mexican and Australian). 1 ounce Philharmonics also out of stock. I remember when CID used to do special offers - not many of those lately

    GOLD

    I bought a few 1 gram ingots on a whim - they are small but perfectly formed

    GOLD

    I think there is a good balance here - some very knowledgeable posters, some 'ordinary' people that have taken an interest in economics due to their own personal circumstances (HPC etc). I think a newbie spending time on GEI would not go too far wrong. It is not too cosy here however - for example many take umbrage with some of my views about modern history and private banking/ Rothschilds - but when everyone starts agreeing, it is time to look elsewhere.

    A fool is a fool but I do worry about people who are naive about economics but are concerned about the future being influenced by articles like this.

    GOLD

    Krugerrands back in stock at CID - but over £900 each.

    GOLD

    You must have a different BV chart or calendar from me. March 08 - around 500 GBP

    GOLD

    No bid history on that and £650 - does not seem credible - usually Krugerrands sell within a fairly tight band. Strange.

    GOLD

    Good luck - I have a small position at BV - I wound it down over the last few years to a level where if I logged on one day and found 'error 404 site not found', I would be peeved but not devastated. I may be a little premature but I now only feel comfortable with physical possession.

    GOLD

    Plenty of posters here saying they could not bring themselves to buy at £500 a few years ago...

    GOLD

    Good point - my take on it is that people are buying significant amounts (say 100 plus ounces) and 1oz coins seem more sense than four times as many Sovs - or it may just be that The 1oz coins are in shorter supply and ran out earlier. Anyone else got any theories?

    GOLD

    Still Maples left - but 900 odd GBP each

    Replace MainStream Media with Controlled media and it makes sense that the sheeple would not be informed.

    SILVER

    I backed up my (modestly sized) truck last year to load up with silver. It feels like... wealth
