    breaktwister reacted to Alex in What will happen to gold if we go digital   
    Bitcoin is the biggest scam I ever seen.Lost 50 pounds,bought with blockchain and tried to sell the bitcoins to see how much they charge and to understand better the bitcoin but your account gets blocked for 7 days,just once, for ''security'' reasons.During these 7 days the price plummeted so nothing you could do.For every transaction they charge the same amount in fees or for miners because ''The Bitcoin network is currently experiencing record usage, resulting in longer confirmation times and higher miner’s fees for transactions. Transactions are likely to be more expensive and/or take longer to complete and additional fees go directly to miners.''See some reviews here https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/blockchain.info. People are stuck into it,they can`t sell it because they will lose half the money invested.Also,the price is heavily manipulated.
    I own a few kilo of silver coins from say 1850 to current date.I buy what I like but dunno why everything I like it`s expensive.I strongly believe you can`t go wrong with old coins as an investment and if you are lucky enough you can get crazy deals on ebay.One example of a crazy deal was to win an auction of an 1911 Chinese HOT flame dollar with 92 pounds last year and just tried to buy another one but it sold with 600 pounds.I got many good deals on ebay but I spend a lot of time searching for bargains.You can`t go wrong investing in art,coins,antiques.Just started to invest in old gold coins buying from reputable gold dealers but so far it`s been a disaster.Gold is King because it has unique properties and also because it makes us feel like Smeagol. ''Scientists have observed two stars slamming into each other deep in space sending out huge amounts of gold in an alchemical explosion''.
    Looking at the gold chart in dollars it looks bullish .I think people are quietly buying gold.Big banks are rising the interest rates,inflation soaring...
    My motto is: If a great recession will happen I win because I hold precious metals.If there won`t be any recession I still win because there`s nothing to worry about and I can keep buying coins

    Something a little different than lots of shields, I finally achieved my goal of getting 1989 and 2002 BU and Proof Quintuple sovereigns.
    I know everyone collects single sovs, but boy do these coins look so much nicer in 5 sovereign! The 2002 proof arrives tomorrow so will photo that then

    breaktwister got a reaction from Gav in silver price by 2020   
    At £5 every mine in the world would shut down.  No supply means the price would shoot up dramatically.  My guess is that the absolute floor on the price is around $12.  It simply cannot go below that or the supply will start drying up as mines scale back and even shut.  So basically, we have very little downside and huge upside.  Buying as much as I can on this recent dip.

    I'm not in a rush to sell these but willing to let them go at the right price .  Good opportunity to pick up some of the rarer pieces (2014 coins super low mintage and only available in sets) at a somewhat normal price compared to the listings on ebay from the "premium price" sellers I am sure we all know!  These are all gold proof ultra cameo.

    I think what little wind was left in the PM sails just went into cryptos.  My guess is PM prices won't turn up significantly until either the bitcoin or stock bubble pops.  Which is fine for me since I'm not looking to sell anytime soon.

    The more I look at these futures exchanges the more I think they are going to get burned, Bitcoin is decentralised and operates 24/7 non stop, the CME and the NY exchange closes every Weekend and for the major holidays, consdering Bitcoin can go up double digit percentage points in a day (in 10 minutes even)  I can see the shorts continually getting slaughtered.

    I agree, the CME futures market comes online Sunday and all of a sudden the MSM and the likes of MSE are telling you to get in, this rings alarm bells with me but it's entirely possible that the CME is onto a loser here as they are not dealing in physical Bitcoin, at least with their gold and silver rigging they suppsedly can deliver gold and silver.  From the outset they have said they will not be buying and selling physical Bitcoin and they will only be settling in cash.  They can play their games and do their high frequency trading back and forth between themselves but there are plenty of worldwide exchanges and plenty of other cryptos to swap out to so with any luck instead of destroying Bitcoin rather Bitcoin will destroy them.

    A lot of love on this forum in general for sovereigns and once you have an older one in hand you realise why, the rich history of the coin as Real Money.  However, the collector in me realised that I would kill myself tryin to collect them all so I went for the 1/4oz Britannia proofs.  Collector or stacker approach will determine your main purchases. Defo sovereigns for stacking gold.

    The guy has no more idea than the man in the Moon about what is going to happen over the coming months or year.
    There have indeed been some large volume sells going on - this means there have been some large volume buys going on. For ever contract sold there is a contract bought. There are many calls at the moment for gold to go down into the end of the year. When there are many calls about anything you can be sure it is propaganda at the behest of the central planners
    The paper markets are managed by the central planners because this is part of their management of fiat currencies and stock market indices. The single seller volumes that get flushed through breach intra-day position limits. These get reported for what it is worth to the so-called regulators who ignore these reports b/c it is their ultimate bosses who are doing the selling. There have been some desperate attempts to cap price at critical moving averages in the last few weeks. The only reason for the big volume sells is the likes of the Bank of International Settlements and agents of the Fed have been selling 100's of tonnes of paper gold and triggering stops of 1000's of tonnes of speculator positions. The problem they face when this happens and price slumps it triggers a tsunami of physical buy orders that sit there waiting. These take a few days to ultimately hit the markets but when these are presented for delivery they can and do push price higher b/c bullion banks have to deliver and they hedge this. The reason price is not at $800 is simply b/c of the physical market.
    There is a game being played between Western central planners attempting to prop up the USD and the stock and bond markets on the one side and the Asian physical buyers, including their central banks on the other. For as long as physical can be delivered at bargain prices the physical market participants are happy for this to continue, all the time draining Western vaults until they are dry. i genuinely see this game is reaching a climax. i know large tonnage buy orders have been blocked, i hear 100's of tonnes of gold are going through the Exchange for Physical COMEX conduit which is supposed to be an exceptional event but this has been ramping up over recent months. Here COMEX shorts are actually being confronted with demands for delivery that will not go away even with bribes of large premiums. Even the regulators are feeling inclined to look into this.
    This is building up and has been building up over the summer. Physical buying appears to be as strong as in 2008 when gold launched into its huge bull run. None of this will ever be visible from a chart of phantom gold proxies like GLD. Something is brewing and a price reset is certainly not a million miles away. A concerted physical buying frenzy is all that would be needed to close the markets and reset price significantly higher. When this does happen and it will, it will not be a slow process.
