A fair point Ziggy but it’s only fallen to a little higher than where it was at the beginning of the pandemic, and that’s because market sentiment falsely believes we are “going back to normal.” We aren’t.

 

I’m comfortable with that.

 

I’ve just checked prices and it’s trading about £20/oz higher than this time last year. Still better than any bank rate.

 

If hyper inflation kicks in, the current metals prices are going to look like the bargain of the century.

 

My point is this, and it refers back to my earlier comment on the Cyprus situation.  If I have a piece of gold or silver in my hand it will never be worth nothing. These thieving bastards at the bank can wipe out any of our “digital” currency at the flick of a switch and there isn’t a damn thing we can do about it.

 

People don’t believe that will happen here. It will.

 

 

well investing some of the money in canned goods and consumables for your hobby which are bound to increase in price would seem a good idea too.

Interesting discussion. 

So if you have money in the bank and you think that it's all going to go tits up, what is the reason for buying gold? How is having gold or silver any different? At some point you're gonna want to cash it in but for what? Genuine question.

Agree with basically all your saying mate.

Thing is, 60% of all my wife and I have is in gold so I watch the price daily and it's been horrifying watching the price crash over the last 8 weeks. I've been watching noughts drop off the end of our worth.

If we were younger, I wouldn't worry too much but we're both in our 72nd year.

I hope we're both still around when it finally starts to climb again......thing is, looking at the charts there's not much support below the current price.

Ziggy the gold and silver market will be fine,Its been used for centuries before the paper iou came about. They may try and crash the price to frighten people,but its always going to worth keeping,maybe longer term. If inflation or de-inflation happens precious metals will be needed.

bitcoin in my understanding is only a short term gain,and if the net going down well its worthless.

Precious metals have been used to trade for 100's of years.

So...

My local council have now issued covid tests (lateral flow) to all teaching staff. We were "strongly, strongly recommended" to have the bi-weekly tests and send the results off to Test and Trace NHS app and to the council.

 

I'm the only person in my workplace to my knowledge to refuse. Not that I want a medal or anything. Maybe just a clap at 6pm 🤣...joking...

 

Anyway...even those who think this is nonsense are still doing the tests. Mind boggling really. I told staff I won't be having it and showed them a BMJ article which basically states both tests are useless. People didn't dispute this...however just simply went along with the demands.

 

Everyone needs to take a stand now...we might be up against it, but let's at least fight.👍

But I'm trying to ask how this would work in a practical sense? Say you want to buy 10,000 pounds worth of gold as you don't want to lose this money that currently sits in a bank. So the idea is that keep hold of this gold as the banks collapse, but then what? Do you sell it when the price rockets and if so what do you get for it, cash? You certainly can't split an ingot as somebody mentioned in the thread earlier.

This is just my look on it, I would buy coins because they are easier to use. If the money system goes down,we would have to find a new way to barter,and what better way with gold and silver. Its up to you how you deal with it.

Doesn't have to be ingots.

You can buy gold coins.
