    GOLD

    Sorry if this has already been addressed (been busy) but what is happening on BullionVault? The gold price chart currently shows the price as £15,400/kg yet the buy/sell price is around £16,400 in the Zurich vault. Is the premium really this high at the moment? Or is it a bug? Thanks in advance. Edit: Ah, just noticed ticker at the bottom saying low stocks, more arriving tomorrow... will hold fire until then

    Great Quotes

  8. A colleague at work has pointed out that when pricing an option one of the assumptions is that "it is possible to short sell the underlying stock". See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black-Scholes#The_model If this is not now the case, what will this mean for derivative pricing?

    I keep hearing comments about the record short position in gold and/or silver. Where can one see the actual numbers? Thanks.

    Hi notanewmember - yes, I gave it a listen. I found his fundamentalist christian bible-bashing too off-putting really, but I did listen to the end. I find it hard to listen to someone (even if they are correct) given their stated belief in magic moonbeams. He claims strict application of terms to his search for the truth about money and yet is able to swallow the contradictory drivel written in the bible. Shame really as I quite enjoyed it apart from that
