    It does suck 
    I run a family run carpet shop we are a small business but have a really good turn over. We desided 15 years ago to leave a big chain carpet retailer and start on our own we desided that we needed to be on a big retail park near the big chain. The rent was expensive but if it was going to work thats where we needed to be the risk played off the big chain paid all the advertising cost to get people on the site we under cut there prices and for 10 years all was good but greedy landlords screwed us they doubled the rent in 10 years and over the next 5 years at every rent review it went up. We knew if it carried on going up over the next 10 years we would be out of business. We was lucky as another company had been offering to take the lease over for 18 months we held out until everything was in our favour financially and relocated to another retail park which is just as busy and the rent is the same as the old one 15 years ago only time will tell if it works out but it was garenteed to fail at the other site within 10 years anyway
    The point is the UK dont make things easy for businesses at all.
    We all pay our rates taxes and vat as small businesses and they let the large company's get away with murder and let landlords get away with charging what they want as Mike Ashley said greedy land lords are to blame for 3 house of Fraser stores closing thats a min of 30 jobs gone 
    Sorry about my little storie just getting it of my chest

    Obviously suits sellers but as a buyer the GSP charges are horrendous and I refuse to use this service, so sellers are not getting my business for sure.

    Today I received:
    100g Geiger bar from @RowanRK6
    5x Buffalo coins from @SilverStan
    I have to say the Geiger bar is my favourite 100g bar I have so far. Much better seeing Geiger bars in the flesh!
    The size comparison between the other 100g bars (see last pic) is pretty interesting. Makes me want to get more Geiger bars!

    True and the trend is down has been for 8 years, the ancestors say "don't fight the trend" for a reason.  
    In USD platinum is at strong support. Support has been tested multiple times, not sure what the volume is on the paper market, probably low? Not necessarily the bottom, it could easily go lower in no time.
    The ratio's are not good measures for timing the bottom as ratios can reverse by lowering relative prices, ie gold and palladium falling while platinum stays the same or falls less. It does limit the relative downside for platinum. 
    Alternatively see the extreme ratio's and trend across the metals as an indication that all can expect further downside with platinum expected to perform the least worst, arguably the trend is down in all but palladium. The volume on palladium is as record high as the price. Sell all other metals and buy palladium?

    Please only respond if you have interest in this item.  As with all listing, a price is listed.  However, prices are not always set in stone and some sellers are open to negotiation which can be done both in the thread or via PM.

    flim got a reaction from Uksilverstackers in So does anyone think Platinum will ever reach highs?   
    i would set aside some cash waiting for the lowest price of Platinum over the next 5 years
    continue to sell Palladium into the new high and buy some silver
    just imagine 400/oz Platinum went to 1400 in the next 15-20 years
    eg 10 oz for 4000, then hold till 14,000 that would be 10 grands of profit in the future, its a rather good return for a hold strategy for inert metals

    when you see people are still buying Platinum coins, it means they are not cheap
    it is best to buy when people really hated Platinum
    when they start to be offered for sale at spot, that when the bargains for good value
    so far no bargains yet

    Palladium trend is continue to test new high, until it stop, then there can be a change in trend
    Platinum is very weak, with oversupply ...it keep breaking the 800 mark, it went up because the buyers trying to average down, well the trend is still down
    it can wait for 600 or even 400 back to 2002 price again, Platinum peak out at 2299
    there would be a 5 years span of buying opportunity, I am waiting for that one
