    Bullionaire reacted to S2G in Website for comparing UK prices for gold sovereigns, britannias, etc   
    Hi all,
    I recently launched a little side project of mine for monitoring the prices of gold sovereigns by UK dealers:
    https://goldcompare.net
    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!

    Bullionaire reacted to vand in The Permanent Portfolio   
    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.

    Some beetroot from yesterday - Mrs ST loves her pickled beetroot - I can't stand the stuff😄
    Roasted beetroot is good though.
    I was going to lift most of the potatoes yesterday but the heavens opened and the plot rapidly disappeared under 3 inches of water - made pasta sauce instead.

    Bullionaire reacted to KDave in The benefits of a LISA   
    Be careful with the LISA if you ever need help from the state in terms of out of work benefits the LISA is not treated as a pension but as savings. The government will force you to liquidate, claw back the 25% and charge you for the privilege (you get back less than you paid in) and draw it down until you are eligible for the bennies.
    It's genius really. Get people saving for the rainy day, covers both pension, reduces bennies for those who actually need it and haven't made a lifestyle out of claiming, and I reckon it will be means tested later, reducing state pension output. But I'm a pessimist.
    It's a good deal if it all goes to plan in life.

    This is our thrid batch of beans that we have "Blanched"
    Basically you boil them for 2 minutes, dunk them in icy water and let them air dry. Then bag them up, pop them in the freezer and they are good as new when taken out at the other end!
    Saves them from getting freezer damaged and preserves their flavour much more. 
    This batch is a total of 2kg of lovely runners, french and purple beans!
    Yum Yum!
