dubayyy Posted February 19, 2008 Report Share Posted February 19, 2008 Hi. This is my first post on this excellent forum. I have been lurking here for the last few weeks and grateful for all the excellent advice posted by Dr. Bubb, Frizzers (big fan of yours in Moneyweek btw) et al. I have been investing in property for the last few years and have now liquidated some gains. I have been taking some small positions in Gold and Silver ETFs over the last few weeks and made some good returns (around 18% on average over 12 weeks). Also having read this and other forums I have taken minor stakes in Sylvania Resources (SLV.L) and GDX:AMEX (HUI 'tracker'). Although I am relatively new to precious metals I feel I have read enough to understand there is going to be an ongoing bull in metals and commodities. Over the next few months I am looking to speculate and invest with around £50k in this sector. Given where the market is just now what would constitute a good balance of holdings in the following sectors?: 1. ETFs (Gold/Silver/Platinum/Palladium) 2. Mining Majors 3. Junior Miners Although I am very comfortable with ETFs and fairly comfortable with the Majors, it would be interesting to get some resources for researching junior miners. Also where is the best (online) place to trade Canadian and Australian juniors? i currently have online accounts with Barclays Stockbrokers and Selftrade and these will not for example trade Beartooth Platinum (BTP.T) as it does not clear through CREST. I have a fairly high appetite for risk and am seeking maximum capital growth over a 3 year term. Any advice gratefully accepted. d Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
