SamCW reacted to Nick1368 in Keeping track of your stack value
Definitely do it, I just use my MacBook's Numbers app, I keep the following information:
Name and weight of the coin
Spot price at the time of purchase
Date of purchase
Name of dealer/Seller
Mint year of the coin
Total price paid for the whole stack
Total weight of the whole stack
Total number of the coins
Total premium paid over spot price for the whole stack
Every time I look at my spread sheet, it gives me a clear idea of what I have been doing so far and what I should be doing next.
And I also have a different spread sheet for the coins that I sold, so I know how much profit or loss I made on a coin and in total as well, so I know which coins to avoid in the future and opposite.

To be honest I have only read one book when it comes to PMs (free available online)
Most research I have done via YouTube subscribed to the following channels (blanked out all the none PM related channels). Word of caution be very careful who listen to on YouTube as it can and will influence you.
SamCW reacted to Lindeman in 2019 oriental border
Not sure what to make of this , as I loved the 2018 design and bought in with a 20x sleeve.....partly because it was called a “One time” design (which is now not entirely true🙁). . So they are being a bit cute just fiddling with the border design. Agree with you @SamCW - the 2019 has too many concentric lines now out past the radials ...if thats the right terminology. In other words - yes, its more cluttered!
Here is the 2018 image for comparison.
I guess i agree with a few others - will just have to shut up and keep the run going then ! Buckle up for an annual geometry / oriental border competition ....because i am sure a 7 year old with a ruler and steady hand could design a new border for 2020, 2021 etc 😂.

SamCW reacted to Pritchard in Stack Sell - Gold and silver Coins *REDUCED! Buy Me!*
Still Two and a Half ounces of fine gold,
That is available, and waiting to be sold,
So dont delay and dont hang around,
who knows if the dollar will raise against the pound.
If brexit is what you are waiting for,
Then make sure you are first to the door.
I really need this thread to be closed,
As i have another, soon, to be composed.
SamCW reacted to vand in Market Corrections, Crashes & Silver Prices
Interesting OP.. I guess the historical record is what it is. It would indeed seem that for the majority of crashes, silver behaves like a commodity and gets a walloping alongside stocks. poor silver bugs.
I would be careful about such cherry picked data, though. For example, I think we are all aware of how much better silver did than gold from the bottom of the last crash in Q1 2009, so it's a case of swings and roundabounts. One way to look at it is that you need the price volatility in order to take advantage of cost-averaging strategies, and silver is much better for this than gold
SamCW reacted to HawkHybrid in Market Corrections, Crashes & Silver Prices
my interpretation of the data is that it suggests silver mostly
goes down with the stock market during recent big declines.
it just goes down less in %.
with hindsight, what should you have held in 2011, silver
which has dropped ~70% or gold which dropped ~55%?
given hindsight I would hold neither. cash would have been a
hence I'm suggesting those holding silver in the hope that
it will buck the trend similar to gold, (should a big drop in the
stock markets occur) should consider recalculating the odds.
everyone knows the price of silver is more volatile than gold...
that means it does crazy things. it's a gamble, expecting it to
be predictable when you want it to... (people need to revise
(I'm not saying that silver won't save you during a crisis, I'm
saying that the actual odds of it happening might change
how comfortable some people might feel about going all in
on silver to save the day)
I started all in on silver. the move to only consider gold
sovereigns, for me, is simplicity itself.
