  1. For those of us who are unable to leave the UK, for resaons of family, friends, no other place to go etc.... how about looking to benefit from the weakening pound? I know a palestinian guy who had been making a fortune exporting prestige cars to israel. All this from the weakening pound. http://finance.yahoo.com/echarts?s=GBPILS=...ource=undefined I know these kind of oppurtunities don't tend to last for long, but all i'm saying is oppurtunies will arise when there is change.

  3. ermm??? did we just see another short covering rally? just hit S&P 870??
  4. haha We fell back to 116p, slightly above the 252day MA. Me itching to buy. What indicators to watch that we dont fall below the 252d ma? exercising caution here ...
  5. The artice was for the Dow Jones. I believe he still is targetting a July bottom for FTSE.
  6. Nadeem Walayat, is one of the few analysts I follow. He thinks this isn't just a multi week bear market rally, but the start of something much bigger .... Could it really be? Must be the ultimate contrarian view! http://www.marketoracle.co.uk/Article9435.html

  8. Is there such a thing such as a sterling Index? Seem's to me it's on a mini rally up, after a massive sell off .....

    Sell the British Pound

    yep, again! Interestingly, back then he mentioned sterling was high for reasons he didn't know?? Other's i'd like to see on CWR - Fred Harrison, for an update, Art Laffer the $35 oil man, and Nadeem Walayat, Market Oracle Editor.

    Sell the British Pound

    I think there could be more to the point with North Sea oil than we realise. Do we have any North Sea oil experts around here who wud care to comment? As for UK Exports, we dont have much the world wants ... other than financial services, a few land rovers to sell (now owned by an Indian outfit), and some military hardware. Most industry in the UK is services based, but it is domestic! What would be great - get Rogers on CWR!!!

    Sell the British Pound

    That's exports, not the same thing as GDP. Just done a quick google search, figures vary massively. Guess it depends what you want to count as financial services!
  12. Truly, truly, disturbing! Looks like one of them old skool communist places.

    Sell the British Pound

    I'm not too sure what to make of Rogers claims. I guess declining north sea production isn't just a problem for government tax revenues, but will also produce greater trade deficits. If the UK's Oil consumption is 1.75Million barrels/day, then at $100/barrel, this equates to $64 Billion spent on oil per year. Even if we imported half this per year, doesn't seem like a huge amount. Found this graph while doing some research... http://europe.theoildrum.com/story/2006/9/17/135527/399 However, I doubt the financial services accounts for just 8pc. All the figures i have seen range from at least 18 - 35% GDP.
  14. Why are oil service companies a good sign that the POO will enter an upward trend? I was of the thinking that oil producers would limit production to boost prices?

    HYPERINFLATION

    Yes, true, would be interesting to see more history, can any one find one? But bear in mind, it's the point where money supply started to lag price levels significantly that the sh*t really hit the hyperinflationary fan. The logarithmic scale does it no justice.

    Proof in 1920's Germany? Money supply lagged price levels .....

    SILVER

    At this moment, the Silver price stands at $13.43, from its recent low of around $10.5. It has gained price rather fast, volume would seem slightly above average, but nowhere near its peak since march this year. Is right now a good time to get in? Or could we be looking at a kind of dead cat bounce?
