    Yes, you are right! Exponential growth is the minimimum level!!! We need to catch up with the 'fiat' printers, they have been running at full speed for far too long!

    Use exponential function in your spreadsheet package.

    Because then house prices would be like gold prices and kept artificially low. That's not part of the plan. Have you tried betfair? I am sure you should be able to bet on there.

    This is only 1 policy in a whole host of dangerous policies. There are many more such as deferrment of Student Loans if you are on benefits, etc, etc. Have a quick look here and see what's on the menu: http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/MoneyTaxAndBen...ncome/index.htm Yes, I 100% agree with you that this is wrong and encourages people to abuse the system. Some of the advice I have given people who have been recently made redundant is to go and get their teeth done as it will be 'free' for them. How did a 'safety-net' turn into this matrix of moral hazard? I beleive it is down to fiat money, which encourages malinvestment. So now we are back on topic to uk houses!

    Yes, its true - I thought this was common knowledge? However, it's not all roses as you have to pass certain criteria and lasts for 2 years. Obviously, some are better at passing the criteria than others! More here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/7956015.stm Broken Britain in action - Either work hard at being honest, or work hard at being dishonest. Either way this country is deferring the pain.

    What was it that made you puke the first time? TPTB = The Powers That Be. I know what you mean about brit's holding onto houses - I do that analysis and you would think I would be STR'ing straight away. However, I will not be STR'ing as I like where I live and am concentrating on getting rid of the smallish mortgage asap. My house is my home, my investments are my speculations, and my gold is my money.

    5 or 6 years after the peak is optimistic and would make this hpc shorter by 1/2 years than hpc of late 80's - Printing presses would need to be on full speed with no chance of stopping! My guesses using my fib chart: (If we go to IMF for bailouts, then it will remove the more optimistic guesses) Optimistic (and 1 year less pain than previous hpc) = 6 years = 2013 bottom Middle of the road guess = 8 years = 2015 bottom Pessimistic = 12 years = 2019 bottom Obliteration of middle class (which is probably the ideal goal for TPTB) = 13 years = 2020 bottom

    Every great journey starts with a single step... I'm not making any predictions, that's the title of the article. Can you give the inflation vs deflation lectures a rest? You know my view and I respect yours.

    Exactly right Warpig. Silver is way undervalued as I explained in my Gold TTT thread!

    Our 'ker contra-indicator also said today was going to be bearish and we may see 1022 or 1025... Look's like all systems go!

    Everyone's situaton is different - just to be clear to everyone that I have never STR'd nor do I plan to. I never liked the idea of being a tenant. Those that have STR'd have much bigger b***s than me!

    This article here talks of gold at over $7000 per oz and rising. http://www.marketoracle.co.uk/Article14372.html

    The market is a magnificent 'creature'. Even when you know what you know, it still has a powerful 'song' that lures you in. Also, had a few 'friends' who recently bought and gave me and mrs fwiw guided tours of their newly acquired mansions. I must say that if it wasn't for my 'hpc with fibs chart' map, I would have crashed too. Mrs fwiw still thinks i am mad; better to be mad rather than having an enormous milstone round one's neck.

    We must do one for silver as well - how we all laughed at his prediction of $6.60!!! Then I nearly s##t myself when kitco decided to 'comply'!

    I think it might do with someone's need to put in witty one liners...or it could be a conspiracy?

    I don't really called what its called, my main gripe is the monthly installments. I prefer GF's thread as it is all-in-one.

    I was just looking at the 15min chart and thinking volatility is coming down a bit...now I just need a pull back and then hopefully a sign to move the market! That RBContraIndicator is exactly the sign I was looking for!! lol

    I was referring to that and a few other reports that came out this weekend. Looks like more people are waking up. I must admit it is a very elegant and elaborate Long Con.

    +1 Very well said RH. 100% agree with you. I am starting to visualise gold performing a pressure release valve type mechanism. When either fiat or gold money systems get too dominate then the other comes into play. These play out over multi-generation cycles and we can't choose when we are born! I have also pondered the question does a lie help create peace, and does the truth help create conflict? I am still thinking about that one...
