    Almost everything you have been told is a lie or a lie repeated in ignorance. 
    Western powers have been destabilising Syria for years. Assad is the elected leader of his people. He is not gassing them or barrel bombing them [whatever invention that is]. We know in the previous attempt to implicate him in gassing his people it was shown the raw materials for the 'gas' came from the UK. That the gas was made by the Western organised terrorists [moderate rebels]. There are no moderate rebels, there are simply Western-financed and trained mercenaries. The whole business with terrorists is a psyop. Al Queda was started by the CIA in Afghanistan. Bin Laden [aka Tim Osman] worked for the CIA and died in Saudia Arabia in 2001 from longstanding kidney failure. He had nothing to do with 9/11. 
    Most of the cruise missiles in the recent 'attack' on Syria did not hit the airbase in the middle of the desert, that may well not even be used. Where did they land if they were even launched? We see no planes blown up. The runways were not hit. The Russians were given advanced warning whilst Trump was eating chocolate cake with the Chinese leader at his golf course in Florida. 
    North Korea is the stage for some sort of farce. It borders China. The Chinese could take the country in a heartbeat. The North Koreans do not have missiles that work properly. They are said to have nuclear weapons but that is highly doubtful. The Chinese would not allow that. These nukes might land in China and the Chinese do not want radiation spreading into China. The idea the North Koreans have nuclear-armed missiles that actually work is farcical, let alone weapons that could land in the US. 
    The US are said to be sending warships to Korea. They haven't. It is just something in the media, something they say so they can say something. 
    I follow nearly all the financial announcements. I watch the BBC news. I do both to see what they are lying about. 
    The civil war in Syria could be over in a few weeks. Nothing other than some sort of theatre with actors is going on in North Korea. All the stuff about terrorists is orchestrated by the Secret Services. The markets are primarily operated by computers which plot levels on the charts they then sell billions of units between. There need to be terrorists so the governments can introduce more and more controls on the people. There need to be real but mainly phoney wars to give a reason for the military industrial complex. There need to be these events [and celebrity culture, junk tel-lie-vision etc] to distract people from the fact they are being robbed blind and lied to. 
    The game is to extract value from the people. Issue currency out of thin air which people work for. Have people 'save' this currency but at the same time issue more of it so there is inflation. Inflation gradually reduces the value of the currency saved by the people and so steals from them. To build up the price of assets, have the people put their currency into these and then dump the prices. This steals from the people.
    i can see what the media and government tell us in their data does not make sense. We are supposed to have been in a recovery since 2009. The economies are supposed to be doing well. The UK is supposed for example to have the 5th largest economy in the world. Does that sound right to you?
    There is so much debt and Western industrial production has run down so much, the systems in the West are unstable. This is all predictable, so likely is deliberate. There will be a trigger for the collapse. A war nicely covers the sins of the fat controllers. The markets are at levels that are unreal, they are not reacting to reality. Gold and silver should be many times higher than they are b/c they are real money. We see corporations that are not making anything but losses supposed to be worth $billions. A balloon looks big but has next to nothing of substance to it. It is a facade. When it gets popped it is gone and you discover your money and pensions have gone with it. 
    Keep stacking real money.

    Have you ever heard a speech from the North Korean leaders? i just listened to the translation of one from Kim Jong Un. It said nothing. i have no idea if the translation is correct. 
    All you actually hear is the controlled media saying North Korea is making threatening noises. What i have heard is they keep asking for talks with the West. The only threats come from the US. The offer of talks is always refused b/c if there were any talks it would be apparent there is no threat. There must always be a boogie man.

  10. Paul liked a post in a topic by Bumble in Equities going parabolic - Is the crash near?   
    P/E is only one measure of value. You need to bear in mind the following:
    1. A lot of investors just want safe dividends. They can no longer get these from high rated bonds, because bond yields are low and look set to stay low, at least in real terms. But they can get dividends from stocks. Many blue chip stocks pay 3% or more in dividends, and as long as they can maintain these dividends these stocks are not overpriced. We are now in a mad world where conservative investors have been chased out of bonds and into stocks and are buying them for yield.
    2. P/E ratios cannot appropriately be compared with historical values, because QE has fundamentally shifted any point of comparison. A whole lot of money is chasing after stocks and bonds that never used to exist.
    3. In recent years, many companies have exploited the low interest rates to borrow money for share buy-backs. This has reduced the shares in circulation and pushed up prices.
    4. In Japan, the central bank is buying stocks, meaning that prices cannot fall, unless there is a systemic financial collapse. Central banks in the USA, UK or Europe might follow suit, printing money and buying stocks to prop up the market prices. Governments over time show a tendency for increased intervention and interference in economic affairs, so I wouldn't find this development surprising.
    5. Stock prices can only fall if many investors take their money out of the stock market; but if they do, where does it go? Bonds are already overpriced. Cash held at bank is asking for trouble: the banks are not that safe. Real estate might be OK if you know where and what to buy, but much of that is overpriced as well. Precious metals should be an attractive option, but so far the market has been ignoring them. So, stocks remain a default option for money that has nowhere better to go.

    https://articles.royalmintbullion.com/sell-gold-bullion/
    I just noticed this while in my Royal Mint Bullion holding today, I cant recall it being brought up here before.
    They will buy back gold bullion coins and bars for 96% of spot which is fair enough i suppose 
    (Although we know we can normally get a 1% or 4% better elsewhere from the other established bullion players Atkinsons, HGM, Chard, BBP)
    Looks like Royal Mail Bullion they are diversifying their business model yet further, in addition to them offering world bullion coins last month
    Better still get 100% of spot here on the forum and cut out the middle men !!
  12. Paul liked a post in a topic by Madstacks in Steve and other Sov experts needed..find of as lifetime? or disappointment?   
    Coins confirmed as real:) they did not use an XRF, but have highly accurate scales - they were happy to buy them outright or loan on them there and then so that's good enough for me. We have debated selling two and keeping two, but have decided that they are really nice condition and will be good to keep as coins for a rainy day fund so going to keep them all. finding 4 sovereigns on ST Georges day of all days just seems like it was meant to be.
    Thanks for the advice everyone, kept me sane whilst waiting! 
  13. PolarPanda liked a post in a topic by Paul in What a huge disappointment...   
    just chalk it down to experience and walk on, cost of international return it isnt worth it - just dont buy from them again if that is their attitude, there have been previous threads of bad service from them in aftersales
    as they are brand new 2017 issue - they should not have been sold like this
    they are the cheapest of the cheap currently.
    the silver is still silver. stack them and forget about them.  Sell them for melt when spot is £30 {sigh, whenever those days may return}
     
  14. Niels87 liked a post in a topic by Paul in Stackers, what's your buying strategy?   
    Just buy what is 'best value' on the time of purchase in line with your budget on that day.  
    You end up with a right mix of gold and silver, you know you have not paid over the odds for as that was the best deal on the deal of the day.
    Plugging year gaps and design gaps can be costly and bad for your wealth as i learnt in my early years

  18. Ollie1016 liked a post in a topic by Paul in Ever think about selling your stack?   
    I'm up T'north
    There are several town centres up here you can get properties still for under £50k BUT there is good reason why they are under £50k !
    If someone cant honestly afford a mortgage for £50k they will mostly likely fall into one of these D's  doley, druggy, drunk, desperate, degenerate, daft, in debt, down n out.  OR combinations of several of these Ds
    These fantastic yields that are possible on paper, but not if you have to replace the lead on the roof every other month or totally rewire a property when every strip of electrical cable has been taken for its copper contents for a hit of smack

    These 1/4 Lunars are USA exclusives.  Not sure if they ever released a Horse but the Rooster is currently a Goldco exlcusive.  Very unlikely to hit EU dealers but will probably spread to a few USA dealers eventually.  Chances of it being available from RMB is slim unless they end up with surplus like they have done with the Sheep & Monkey.  With them being exclusives and very very few places getting them in, completing a set would be hard.  Might still be worth picking a few up since 1/4 is affordable and considered rare.

  23. Paul liked a post in a topic by jayboat in Ever have a crap day at work and just think f**k it !!   
    So, i have been having a rough time at work the last few months and have been on the look out for new one. I see jobs that i would be suited for but i by the time i get home, i am too tired and stressed to begin filling out the application forms. My normal work day starts with my alarm going off at 4.30am and ends when i stumble through the door at 5-7pm. Applications are last thing on my mind, im normally angry, tired and have lost the will to live. I am not proud to say but the wife and kids get the short end of the stick until i have had my dinner and im more relaxed. Its not a nice feeling cause they see im not happy. Im setting a bad example for the kids, working for money, not for joy, not thats its that much money either, lol. 
    Today, i made the choice. I made the choice to put my family first and to stop trying to please the wrong people. My manager rolled in at lunch time and pissed off at 3pm, completely leaving me in the **** babysitting 24 EU nationals, most of them untrained useless temps who only understand the words, "break time", "home time" and "yes, you can go for a quick smoke" while i run around like a complete twat fixing all thier mistakes and trying to complete work before the Easter break. While he is away to his caravan for the weekend with his family to do some fishing. and enjoy Easter.  I hope hes enjoys it because he will find my 4 weeks notice slap bang in the middle of his desk on Monday morning. 
    I expect to be offered a pay rise and have my work load reduced (which be forgot about after a few weeks). I plan to simply tell him and the MD, that my letter was not asking for a pay rise, it is my notice. Then he will no he is screwed, no more easy days for him  No more me fixing all his crap and doing half his work. I will be replaced by another idiot who is promised the world on a plate. I do not wonna sound big headed but no body in my position in work can touch me, not even close. I destroyed them all years ago and make them look stupid on a daily basis. I plan to give 100% until my final day, my final minute until i clock out for the last time, i will not give any ammo to them to talk bad about me after i am gone. I want them to no when im gone, i want them to miss me. 
    When life gets boring and becomes grind, 2, 5, 10 years slip by quickly and you dont get them back, you only get regrets. So....onwards and upwards as the man says. I am just glad i finally grew a set, life is too short and i think (hope) i have enough in the saving account for keep us going until something else comes along. 
    Anyone else out there in silver stacker land want to do the same as i have just done? Its truly a life changing feeling.
