    Something I have noticed being ramped up of late is an attempt to emasculate men, for long enough women were portrayed as the answer and if they were at the helm everything would be better but now there is enough of them in positions of power to see that is not the case, Clinton, LaGarde, Yellen, May, Sturgeon, Merkel, the entire Swedish government etc all had or have power and all making a complete horlicks of everything.
    Hollywood seem to promoting a - women good men bad narrative as well in their latest offerings where the women are smart and savvy and the men are dumb and useless.
    Not sure what it's all about but it's noticeable.

    Yes, I still use it - but haven’t for a month or so (I tend not to bid on auctions nowadays as I’ve giving up on buying coins on eBay).
    You get 4 free ‘Snipes’ per week, with the option to purchase more - if you notice that the auction in question gains subsequent bids above the maximum you place on your snipe; you are able to cancel your bid on Bidmate, thereby saving your free snipe to use in the future.  The free snipes do not accumulate week to week - it’s use ‘em or lose ‘em.

    I use a sniping tool (Bidmate.co.uk - others available) for eBay bidding.  It allows me to place 'last minute' (10-20 seconds) bids automatically; even while I'm 'gardening' 🍺🍺🍺

    Morning, mate.
    Don’t panic over the National Debt, it doesn’t have to be repaid (unless, of course, if it’s denominated in a different currency).  In fact, trying to repay it (except in times of genuine surplus) is a BIG mistake - one that can only end in tears. See  http://positivemoney.org/how-money-works/advanced/what-about-the-national-debt
    Also remember that a lot of that ‘debt’ went to build the infrastructure (defence, hospitals, schools, universities, training, roads, airports, etc. etc.) that we all take advantage of today.

    With silver being so cheap, sentiment for silver being so poor, and the uncertainty of the current loophole, I have been started buying silver aggressively (Grrrrr)  the past couple of months.
    However I think Eva and the angry team at Goldsilver.be may end up swaying all the politicians into leaving things as they are. Get her in on all of the trade negotiations and we will be ok.

    It depends as others have said on the outcome to the trade agreements and how 'in' or 'out' we actually are at the end of it 
    In best case scenario the UK leaves with no trade agreement and no tariffs (unlikely), we will lose our access to silver at the discounted rate. I then expect UK buyers to pay 20% on silver for the foreseeable and don't think stacking physical will be viable except for an extremely long time horizon. We will still be able to access exposure to precious metals through vaulting, derivatives and potentially by that point through the crypto markets, but these all carry some degree of counter party risk. Bullion at 20% may still be attractive to eliminate this risk but it is a high price to pay for insurance, I think only hard core stackers will continue with silver in the volumes we see now, but there will always be a market. 
    I actually believe we will not see the UK leave the EU in anything but name, we will still trade under the current agreement or something very similar, likely to our disadvantage thanks to politics and the ignorance of the public. For this reason I don't think we will lose access to low VAT silver, but anything could happen at this point.
    I have heard reasonable arguments that gold will be subject to VAT in the UK post brexit (dependant on outcome), based on the case that the UK government will tax everything it can if it gets the chance, but I prefer Martlet's optimism. No VAT on precious metals would be quite liberating, which makes me think it unlikely.

    who pays for the vaulting of the gold?
    I think these companies are either just out to make a quick
    buck or don't understand money versus currency.
    currency is designed to facilitate trade. currency needs to be
    converted to money if the owner wants it to store value. I
    think of it like a current account versus give notice savings
    account. the current account allows you to buy things and
    the savings account gives better interest rates. using the
    savings account to buy things is poor money management.

    I really, really like this, but it just can't compete with a fiat debit or credit card can it lets be honest. Why pay 0.5% to transfer 'money' into your plastic and then pay 0.5% again to transact with your 'money', when you can do it for 0% cost?

    reidpj reacted to vand in Equities going parabolic - Is the crash near?   
    I think there is zero chance of a deflationary event. 
    I think you've been listening to Mike Maloney too much, who in turn has been listening to too much Harry Dent, who is wedded to his deflationary thesis as he believes everything is demographically driven.
    Deflation is not a pre-requisite before hyperinflation.  The central banks can always create more money supply, and absent people willing to spend their money, governments will certainly step in and act at the buyer of last resort.  Liquidity will leave paper assets and flood into commodities and real assets, which will drive inflation. 
     
    or.. taking an alternative spin on it, you could argue that we have already undergone a deflationary event... in commodities

    Hi John, I'm Roy the resident ogre.
    Silver as an investment? Pah!
    It's a hobby, a speculation, a fantasy and a poor man's entry into precious metals.
    Do I own silver? Yes, because of all the reasons I list above.

    At first I did it as an investment believing all the pumpers then i sold all that stuff at a small loss. Now I'm buying as a savings vehicle for a house etc as I'm not the best at saving cash. Some coins however, I have became a collector of some and I will probably never turn a profit on them but I don't plan to sell those coins either  
    Basically if Im buying silver at say £15 an ounce and in 5 years I make a small loss on each coin Id prefer that to having nothing because anytime anything good comes up in life i splurge all my cash and am left with nothing.
