    dicker reacted to KDave in UK/US No Deal Trade Deal   
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-49325620?intlink_from_url=&link_location=live-reporting-story
    The US has laid its cards on the table - they want a No-Deal Brexit and will offer us virtually instant trade deals, at a cost. 
    In summary the EU is ****ed. Then Iran is next.
    The £ might stop falling now at least. Crude oil too in the near future.

    dicker reacted to KDave in Public supports parliament shut down to achieve Brexit   
    Interesting poll out, 44% of the public support Boris bypassing the traitors in parliament entirely. 37% oppose, 19% don't have a clue. Interesting breakdown by party;
    76% of conservatives support parliament shut down.
    32% of Labour support.
    25% of Libdems agree that Mr Johnson should achieve Brexit "by any means" 
     
    The ComRes study also found widespread disillusionment with MPs themselves, with 88% of those polled feeling Parliament is "out of touch" with the British public.
    Some 89% feel MPs "ignore the wishes of voters and push their own agendas" on Brexit.

    A plea to you all: sit on your hands.
    We stand on the breakout of what will very likely be one of the greatest bull markets of our lifetime. Think about what has happened over the last 10 years: unprecedented level of stimulus into a monetary system that is no longer fit for purpose. This is much worse than the abuse of the system that drove the prior PM bull markets of 1971-1980 and 1999-2011. 
    The fallout from this crazy experiment will drive the price of gold by similar factors over the next decade, just as it did during the previous bull markets. Bull markets always run longer and further than nearly all their early adopters think is possible.
    PMs will be valued many multiples higher in the years to come. Scoot on over to a "mainstream" investment site like MrMoneyMustache or MoneysavingExpert and gold doesn't even figure on the radar. They are ALL about passive index funds and chasing the stock market. They worship VTSAX. If you are lucky you might find someone holding 20% bonds. They won't even look at gold until it has at least doubled from current levels, and even then they will be some of the earlier adopters. 
    There will come a time to sell your PMs and buy something that is better value, but that time is still years away. It will be when everyone thinks it is a good time to be overweight on gold, when Dow/Gold is somewhere between a half to a quarter of its current level.

    dicker reacted to KDave in Epstein - did he commit suicide?   
    If you are surprised by his suicide, imagine how surprised he felt about it. 
    Obvious foul play. 
    That said, I think there is nothing but positive from this turn of events. A child molester is dead, everyone knows who his people were, and the black book is basically a hit list now. There will be others on that list who are eventually put in the same position as Epstein - give up the others or go to jail for the rest of your life - its just a matter of time. There are plenty of victims coming forward. Let the so called elite rip themselves apart and suicide each other, the more the merrier.

    dicker reacted to Pete in Fake 1966 sovereign?   
    If you are going to have restless nights worrying about this coin you could try making a specific gravity test.
    There are earlier posts describing the method but some care has to be taken to get meaningful results.
    Maybe take it to a local jeweller and pretend to want to sell it and see if they can test but a good fake would most likely slip through.
    What did you pay if you are willing to divulge ?

    That's a little unfair.
    I took about 100 pictures today using a camera phone and regretfully a few turned out to be slightly out of focus once zoomed and cropped.
    Not trying to conceal any marks if that's what you are inferring.
    Selling as bullion so don't see any requirement to take another set of images but if you are interested in purchasing I will retake sharper pictures.

    dicker reacted to vand in A palaver over Palladium or is it worth investing in?   
    You're looking the wrong way. The Plat:Pall ratio is touching record levels in Palladium's favour.
    The overwhelmingly smart thing to do is to accumulate Platinum for the move back the other way.
     
    Plat:Pall ratio has historically swung by a factor of x10 in favour of one and then back to the other. Why would you want to buy Palladium today when the pendulum looks ready to swing back the other way:
