    The problem is with a 30% drop there will be lots and lots of investors ready to jump in - including myself. And with the credit markets turning south, new buyers might be squeezed out again. 
    I think the UK will follow the fed and increase rates again soon, otherwise there's no manoverabilty for QE and fiscal policy when markets go south in 2019.

    No way the housing market will correct for another 10 years Imho.
    interest rates will stay pretty low to keep govt debt repayments low and they came build enough houses to keep up with demand. +25% in 10 years

    Can't remember exact figures but his mortgage on it is £350pm & rental income is £625. The property being a new build flat comes with a 10year guarantee on certain things. 60k in the bank earns nothing so may aswel invest in property.

    I would say taking out and subsequently paying your own mortgage off (rather than your landlords if you rent) is an investment that would far out weigh any potential gains on silver. House prices go up and down in the usual cycles but there is always a stale mate that is reached when prices drop to a level that basically no one can afford to sell at.

    Build up emergency fund 3-6 month worth of living cost, then buy up to 500 1oz silver coins then shift for gold. Remember you are saving in PM, not investing. For investing go to crypto stocks or other reits depend on your risk tolerance. PM are in place to save you when SHTF situation happened or you retirement fund ( inflation hedge).

    If you have not bought your first home yet and are under the age cap (cannot remember off the top of my head) a Lifetime ISA is the perfect place to put money. £4000 in and the government gives you £1000. You can only use it for your first home or for pension though, so it is locked up for longer potentially. Much better return than PM's

    Investing wise I would split amongst a few funds in a s&s isa 
    I don't think of buying PMs as investing, but protectionism/hedging etc

    I don’t mind you asking at all, i am interested in diversification, which in my opinion is what precious metals are for. I don’t think PMs are a particularly great investment but its a good hedge and it is one of the places I choose to put a portion of my money. Obviously thats my own take on it due to my own personal circumstances and I understand everyone is different. 
    I certainly won’t be selling my house and going all in on silver any time soon.. Will you?

    I don't see why house prices should crash. Lot of scare-mongering in the press and by those who should know better. People will still move, buy a first home. All depends on what the purchaser does for a living, their income etc etc.
    It's like all this scare mongering about food. Is Britain going to starve. Of course not. Some foodstuff may be in short supply but those are likely to be ones imported from Europe. Buy British. The French will probably resort to dumping their apples into mountains as they did back in the 1970s rather than sell at a low price as they expected to be subsidised by others. So be it. Macron can deal with that surely?

    This is another fascinating gold discovery. Over the last few years we have seen:
    Gold sovs in a piano 
    Saddle ridge hoard - buried on a ranch
    East London Double Eagle hoard - found buried in a garden 
    28 gold ingots found in a garden in France
    A load of gold coins found in a pot in a cellar in a house in France
    Huge gold ingots found in the fuel tank of an Iraqi tank imported to the UK
    Those are just the ones I have read about and remember. How many extraordinary finds are never reported.... I suspect quite a few.

    Drop me a pm with some measurements and the font used and ill see if I can get it closer to the original and will send you the 3D file so you can pack those nice looking coins away for another day.

    I would say the “All time price” we are looking to beat would be in dollars. Given the weakness of the pound now compared to 2011. If you look at a gold chart in USD theres a big difference in how close it is to the all time high. This makes the UK price to beat around £1375 per OZt in todays exchange rate. Hope we get there!
