    Don’t forget Capital Gains Tax. You might need to move into it for a while before selling.

    It’s more fair to say, “I got it completely wrong”. I thought they would focus on commercial paper. This would not have pumped the stock markets. Instead it looks like they have gone for more of the same (Gilts). This will keep pumping the stock markets. Silver will not go down significantly (in GBP) for the next three month. Trust me on this one, I am never wrong

    Don’t worry about the debt. Apparently we can pay it off by printing more money. And we can also use the extra printed money to buy true love, real friends and happiness. Everything is going to work out perfectly (The goal is to increase the money supply. Buying USD with printed GBP could cause the Fed to carry out an equal & opposite transaction. )

    BofE extends QE by £50bn. I didn’t expect that. All my predictions are void. Next Stop HYPERINFLATION

    To be fair, I believe BigT was expecting a low in the GBP gold price in the next few years. Not the next week weeks. I don’t expect gold to drop that low over the next few years, but I do have a strategy* IF it happens. It’s best to think about these things in advance to avoid panic later. * Strategy = Fraudulently take position of my parents house + MEW it + Back up the trucks + Wait for gold to go to The Moon + Sell gold and return house to parents.

    EDIT: Great chart above btw. It really helps keep the DCB in context There is £1.23tn of debt secured against housing (Residential and Housing Association only) Average equity is surprisingly high – 1.23/3.9 = 32% LTV Assuming prices drop another 30% and net lending stays flat. The average LTV will be 1.23/(3.9 x 0.7) = 45% I’ve downloaded a load of data, I will make a chart later today I’d say buy with the maximum amount of debt and wait for Gordon Brown to wipe away your mortgage with unborn childrens’ blood (inflation). Hold some gold & silver. AND hold enough Sterling to see you through some rough times. You can sell some of your gold/silver at any time and reduce your mortgage* risk if you feel uncomfortable at any point. That’s my plan anyway * You need a mortgage that will allow overpayments to do this

    These are my best guesses. Stock Markets – Depends on QE. The stock markets will keep going up for as long as QE lasts. Institutional investors are selling their Gilts/Bonds to Central Banks leaving them with cash to buy stocks, commodities and more Gilts/Bonds. I don’t expect the BofE to extend their gilt purchases this week; instead I think they will focus the next £25bn entirely on commercial paper/bonds. This could lead to a short sharp correction in the markets and allow a nice entry point for some extra silver. GBP could also strengthen a touch at the same time maybe 1.75 vs USD. Euro – No idea. I’m not watching Euro very closely at the moment. US Bonds – Prices will be down a bit at the end of the year. We might get to the stage where banks provide the most of the motive force for QE Bank borrows currency from central bank using crappy collateral and lends money to a new investment vehicle. Investment vehicle buys Bonds and rakes in the coupon payments. Everyone involved is delighted and gets a huge bonus. Taxpayer pays.

    My guess at this point is £7.50 low and £13.50 high for the year. 13% downside, 57% upside

    How low could it go?
  17. Good point. I’d misunderstood the article. I though Shell were going to stop paying Dividends altogether I saw him on yesterdays Channel4 News (link below). John Varley is clearly very intelligent and he seems honest. He’s done a number of good interviews for Channel4 News. I quite like watching him.

    I thought this (below) was an interesting statistic. http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/2009/au...-fall-recession The report said that the total value of residential houses and flats tumbled by nearly £400bn, or 9%, to £3.9tn. Housing still remains by far the most valuable single asset class, accounting for 56% of the country's net worth. Commercial buildings shed £100bn of value to be worth a total of around £600bn.

    You don’t mention any exempt items when you fill in a Self Assessment. Gold Sovereigns & Britannia are exempt because of TCGA92/S21 (1)(B ) TCGA92/S21 (1)(B ) says all Sterling Currency is exempt from CGT. The Silver Britannia (£2) is Sterling currency – like the Gold Britannia (£100) EDIT: This is the CGT question from a Self Assesment. It does not ask you about non-chargeable (exempt) items

    You are not missing anything. Buy the Britannia if you want a one ounce coin.
