    Once upon a time, Brexit...

    Once upon a time, in a land very near, in a castle on a hill, there was a poker game between the UK and the EU. 
    The first game against the naughty step-mother Theresa May was in the EU’s favour, they had the advantage of May showing them her cards and actually helping them to win the first round. The EU sat back, smiled, patted May on the back and congratulated her on what a great player she was, whilst slowly taking her poker chips. 
    But evil May was kicked off the poker table for being a wicked step-mother by the fairy God-mother, and turned into a shoe.

     
    With a flick of the fairy God-mother’s wand and the words “Bring forth a man who can play poker!”...along came a man called Boris the B*stard.
    Boris the B*stard demanded new sealed decks of cards and proceeded to play wearing one-way sun glasses, doubled the EU’s bet and sat back with his cards covered with one hand whilst giving the EU the finger with the other.  Boris then finished his last goblet of the kingdom's finest Brandy, threw all his poker chips on the table and declared...”All in, your move, we’ve had enough of this sh*t!"

    Boris the B*stard also declared loudly "I've brought a ball too, and I like to throw it at faces...a lot”

    The EU had two choices.
    1. Believe that Boris the B*stard would play his cards “no matter what”, whilst continuing to give them the middle finger, or:
    2. Believe that Boris the B*stard would suddenly see sense, sacrifice democracy, drop his pants and hand the EU a jar of Vaseline. However, knowing Boris was a bit of a b*stard, they knew that this option was probably not realistic.
    The game ended like this:
    The EU, at the11’th hour, under candlelight in their castle top tower (which, I must admit, had very strange windows), surrounded by dwarfs, elves and trolls, negotiated a “new great for everyone” deal, whereby both players could leave the table without having to play the final hand.

     
    The EU got to leave the table stating “We won the game and gave the UK a new deal” and
    the UK got to leave the table stating “We won the game and were given a great deal by the EU.”
    And they all lived happily ever after (apart from May, who resides in Hell), the end.

    Hi all,
    I recently launched a little side project of mine for monitoring the prices of gold sovereigns by UK dealers:
    https://ukgoldcompare.herokuapp.com
    At the moment functionality and looks are very basic; it refresh automatically every 2 minutes and watches a few of the most reputable dealers that I know of.
    I wanted to share it in case someone else finds it useful. It's completely free and donations are accepted to keep it running.
    Any constructive feedback is welcome. Thanks!

    Diversified portfolios will have fared pretty well in the last year as their gold and bond components will have taken up the slack as the equity markets have whipsawed.
    Here is my version of PP vs FTSE-All World over the last 4 months.. similar return but much more stable. You can see that Bonds have actually be the biggest contributor to its growth, and makes a strong case for just applying the strategy without trying to second-guess the underlying fundamentals for each of its individual components.




    Here is my active portfolio over the last 10 months vs FTSE-350...you can see that contribution for most of the outperformance has come from the Gold miners fund. VaR of 1.35% for 21% outperformance is a record any money manger should be happy with

    Got most of my PMs earlier this year, with gold around £970-990 and silver around £11.50 - current melt value of the combined stack is up around 10% on what I spent, mainly thanks to gold covering silver. Some of my 1Oz silver coins are actually worth more in melt than I paid for them now.
    I'm well aware of the ups and downs of PM stacking but it does seem I chose a good point to enter the fray... if only I'd had a bit more in the spare cash pot earlier in the year!

    When i was updating my PM spreadsheet earlier, that the overall value of (just) the metal content of my gold and silver is now the same as the money I spent on all the coins/bars in the first place. 
     
    Crazy that the recent uplift (mainly in gold) has wiped out the not-insignificant premiums I've spent on silver and proof coins.
    - On silver, my average premium paid is 70.4% over spot at the time of purchase. I would need spot to be £16.37 to break even on my silver stack
    - On gold, my average premium paid is 11.9% over spot at the time of purchase. £1035.17 was my breakeven point for my gold stack.
    As you can see, I'm not just stacking the cheapest bullion I could get my hands on!
     
    I guess I'm fortunate that I got in to PM when they were relatively cheap, rather than starting in 2011-12 for example.
     
    Long may this trend continue!

    I added a Marvel Hulk coin to my spreadsheet today so I saw my silver cost average was £16.72, I've only been completeing sets of late buying single coins so my total usally goes up tuppence when adding a coin or round.  To bring it down I need large orders from Europe under the tax margin scheme and I've not bought one of these for a while.  I see even the cheapest coins and rounds for sale on Ebay that used to be £20-£22 are now £22-£24 so I'm not too put out about how much my average has crept up of late, I had it around the £13.50 mark for long enough.
