    GOLD

    That may be right. But it costs a fortune to seperate the wheat from the chaff...unless the price of gold and silver rise to make it worthwhile...or the technology improves re extraction.

    Typical answer I have grown accustomed from you... A profession of seeming innocence, followed by an acid drop of insinuation. And then a bit of track covering/wriggle room. As I thought, you do protest too often.

    What are the "best reasons"for buying gold, I wonder?

    GOLD

    I just wish they'd revalue gold to C20,000 ASAP and we'd be off to the races again.

    JD, you ever so conveniently forgot to copy the last line of that article. Allow me to add it: On the other hand, perhaps Gold is set to surge even higher as the financial catastrophe in the Euro-zone unfolds. Only time will tell... ''In fact, over the last 5 years gold has tripled in value compared to the average UK home asking price. A traditional investment in times of financial uncertainty, for many investors Gold has acted as a useful hedge against the corrosive effects of both inflation and asset price deflation. However, the recent trend since September 2011 suggests that the pendulum could be swinging back in the opposite direction. Since September 2011, home prices have gained 15% vs. Gold. Should this trend continue,( ) we could be witnessing the start of a considerable turnaround in the property investment sector.( :lol: ) Investors are still enthusiastic about UK property and the principle reason must be that, unlike Gold, property offers a return on capital in the form of rent. ( And Gold offers a return OF capital in the form of purchasing power).

    Perhaps they should move to Shoreditch? I didn't know what to make of this, tbh. Always used to be a little dump, but now revved up with cocktails and awful accents and piff poor poetry. Still worth a look. Might be fab for all I know. Am I missing the UK at all? Or anything on offer? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-18373621

    GOLD

    ...so all the old gold bulls can come back to pasture? It's a damn shame they are not here, imho. Better than all of hall lights posts altogether was pix or warpig or gf or...or...or... It was a serious question though. I wonder what Prechter means when he says 'real money'. He once said on Dom's interview a few years back that 'gold was the only real money'. I still think he rues the last 10 years bull in gold whilst advising against it. Costly. And the irony is that he could have ridden it spectacularly, sold at 1900 and bought greenbacks. Then wait for the multi year collapse a la deflation, then sweep up the bullion, hand over fist. Anyway...

    GOLD

    And Robert Prechter thinks that even though gold is beginning a 'multi year correction' (and silver down to single digits) he still recommends a core holding of gold. Funny old world... I wonder what his definition of 'real money' really is? Gold or Greenbacks or both?

    GOLD

    I think you miss a point when you reply to B&H's. 'Your' money is just winnings from the roulette table. Others is money earned by adding a little value to the world (no doubt you won't agree but nevermind). They can't afford to risk it. Yes you have oodles more to play around with. But you don't have a safe home or a family to think about. B&H's dont want Apple or Adollars FFS. To them that is just papier mache. They want to slay Mammon. You can't help but worship. Sorry. Your whole take on/treatment of B&H's is misguided and immature. And you should know better, imho.

    Indeed. This is what made GEI so good. Free speech. Dont bury that like your home country has done/is doing. 'So as not to distract others' is a euphemism, is it not?

    ... I am sad. Ah well, Vincent van Gogh's The Cafe Terrace on the Place du Forum stands as one of the painter's most remarkable works. It is also, without question, one of the most famous produced in Van Gogh's brief but prolific career.

    Understand, Schäuble is no idiot. He knows that there is no way Greece would go for this. So his comment can only be seen as an attempt to incite a Greek backlash while also winning political points in Germany. :lol:

    GOLD

    It's probably too late to say this but BE CAREFUL. This is how Hitler behaved and then he lost all his best Generals who realized he was insane. Hitler ended his days defeated in his bunker...or was it Argentina? Re. GF he has always given good advice and opinion. Your silly comments brought out his sharp tongue. You will feel the loss, i feel. You have a load of rumour, unexpanded on 'detail' and hearsay. He only ever produced the facts in the pure light of logic and reason: the German tradition. You have been seduced by a load of conspiracy clap and it has clouded your good judgement, which used to be razor sharp. All IMHO from one friend to another.

    I've always found this advice incredibly useful, especially as I get older: When you are in a hole, stop digging. For weeks now, months actually, you have been at odds with everyone else not vice versa. You have a personal thing about Jim Sinclair, (whether you see it or not) which is fair enough. He's not exactly David Morgan or even Doug Casey. But you say you have 'information' but you can't go into 'detail'. That's like fighting a man that doesnt have a weapon. If you think the posters on the old thread are a bunch of losers then so what? You dont have to wind them all up. I think you do yourself a great disservice. I also think the majority think so to. Come on, loosen up!

    WTF you have binned the gold thread??? 27 million views or something?? That's more than the rest of the site put together? Are you out of your mind?

    SILVER

    If the pattern doesn’t hold, and silver blasts through $40, it’s probably on it’s way to the all-time high. In that case, the next big move would be to the upside, with potential targets of $70 and potentially triple digit silver prices. As long as the pattern holds, I would be careful if silver hits $38. Well, so far, the pattern holds. At the moment, Silver is falling 5%, adding more weight to the Nasdaq comparison, even though many people will blame me for not looking at fundamentals. I do not write this post to trash silver. I like Silver. I like Gold. But I also like my own analyses and comparisons. Do your own Due Diligence.

    Bahmani was quoted as saying. "If a country should so choose, it can pay in gold and we would accept that without any reservation." Obviously not a Buffett follower. Imagine if gold for oil really caught on with other producers...

    Nick Barisheff's book, 'Gold 10,000' is out soon. And he had a couple of podcasts on FS with Jim Puplava. I think a lot of reasonably minded people think official CPI is a load of....

    Exactly right. And the currency will be printed and printed (325bill?) and thus the currency is depreciated/weakened so in real terms (esp Gold terms) house prices will fall. Gold goes up say 30%, house prices fall 30% provided you own/have bought gold. That is what the graph is telling you since 2000.
