  1. Thanks - although that left a rather bitter taste with me. Moving on ... we have a new interview with Brian Whitmer, editor of Elliott Wave International's European Financial Forecast. Brian is bearish on stocks, bullish on cash. Download here. [media]http://media69.podbean.com/pb/ad2cacd04e2ca1e37ac4c6f857fb8d09/52812cdd/data1/blogs1/2516/uploads/whitmer.mp3[/media]
  2. Not for the first time Arch Crawford of Crawford Perspectives was named by Hulbert’s Financial Digest , which looks at the performance of 500 different newsletter writers , as the top market timer of 2008. He uses technical analysis and planetary cycles to determine market direction. His outlook for 2010 is very grim: the alignment of the planets around July 27-30, 2010, could see ‘major changes on the earth, it could change the face of civilization’. http://commoditywatch.podbean.com/2009/05/...s-to-the-stars/

    Buy signal on juniors is still intact. Just.
  5. Max is not the first person to predict a crash in London and he won't be the last. It is not going to happen. The best you can hope for is a levelling out. The market is rigged by low rates, FR banking, vested interest rates, obstructive planning laws and god knows what else. The only thing I can see taking a hit are new build apartments, which are, almost without exception, horrible anyway. But family homes within zones 1 to 3. Barring some kind of meltdown that exceeds 2008, not going to happen.

    Just my 2p, but you can't move in east or south London for cranes and new builds. There are new train lines and stations, all v. fast and v. expensive, all over, though the roads are awful and it is always gridlocked. Yet there is no beauty anywhere. There is not one building that in my view is attractive. All concrete and glass monstrosity. Unlike other parts of London - which were built by people for people. Wapping is nice. But elsewhere, ugh. One thing London ain't got - soul

  8. A rare thing ... An interview ... With Dr John Wolstencroft. http://media6.podbean.com/pb/6efc31e765bf456ad945fb26cfeb4091/52273649/data2/blogs1/2516/uploads/Wolssep13.mp3 http://media6.podbean.com/pb/6efc31e765bf456ad945fb26cfeb4091/52273649/data2/blogs1/2516/uploads/Wolssep13.mp3[/media]"]Download here
  9. This is worth reading: http://www.hindecapital.com/blog/where-has-all-the-gold-gone/ Since 2011, gold is down over 35% while US equities are up 44%. That is a sizeable move in asset classes which you could argue currently both require QE money printing for support. The media will tell you that there has been a “great rotation” into stocks and gold investors have sold all their holdings. They will tell you that this is because of the “economic recovery” in the US. One look at the ISM Manufacturing index will tell you that hugging the 50 line is hardly a stellar recovery. But more importantly we have to challenge the above statement. ”Knock knock , McFly, anyone in there?” In the last 6 months there has been new production of gold of 0.7% of the above ground supply. In the last 5 years there has been no net issuance of US equities. Basically the same gold and equities exist as they did 6 months ago, only the price of exchange has changed. For every buyer of a stock at new highs, there must have been a willing seller.
  10. The Guardian app is excellent. But I notice it is getting more and more US-centric. I also notice it is getting less and less Guardian-y - ie left-wing liberal. The Guardian makes a huge loss. It is supported by a trust. But it is mostly able to survive thanks to the profits of, yes, Autotrader.
  11. I am looking at various ways to value gold. For example: 1. Cost of production. 2. Relative cost of gold to commodities , stocks, housing , 3. Price of gold to money issued , debt , forex holdings If you have any ideas as to valuation models, please post them below.
  12. Fantastic place full of fantastic people. And the surrounding hills are stunning. Marc Faber lives there Paul Ensor has been many times too.

    The Best Of YouTube

    IMO YouTube is brilliant. Some of the videos there are outstanding, yet would never be playable on mainstream TV. I suggest here a thread with links to the very best vids you have seen on YouTube. But, please, don't just link to any old vid you have seen there that is quite good. Let this thread contain the very best. Stuff that can be viewed over and over. Here are a few to kick things off: Our House. HPCers will know this, but boy could this be pertinent.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Labour bring in a mansion tax for properties over 2 million pounds. This is n't a bracket that vote Labour and attacking the rich wins you votes.

  20. Hoping to get him back on soon
  21. Thanks Jake - all comments noted. I'll do something on that story soon. Meanwhile here's another interview - with an anti-mining environmentalist [media]http://media40.podbean.com/pb/c0f36d937e29147a709cea27cba3e177/5142179b/data2/blogs1/2516/uploads/2013-03-12-GMY-DF-E-105.mp3[/media]: Mining In The Colombian Amazon Dominic Frisby talks to Martín Von Hildebrand, General Director of Gaia Amazonas, about mining in the Colombian Amazon. They discuss illegal mining and its consequences, the lack of clarity from the Colombian government on mining and the dilemma of modernisation and its effects on the cultural integrity of indigenous people. Martin Von Hildebrand is the director of Fundación Gaia Amazonas, which he set up in 1990 to work with the indigenous people of the Amazon areas in Colombia, to help them secure their territorial rights and protect the forest. He first visited the Amazonian Indians in the 1970s and has ever since been an activist for indigenous rights, cultural and ecological diversity , working in both government and non-government organizations. In 1986 he became Head of Indigenous Affairs under the government of Virgilio Barco. He has doctorate in ethnology from the Sorbonne in Paris and has won many awards including the Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship. This podcast was recorded on 12 March 2013.

  22. April 10, 2008 Jinshan have a market cap of about $450 million. They've just began producing gold in China. China Gold, the largest Chinese gold producer - and state owned! - has just bought 42% of Jinshan. Behind all this, I believe, is the same bank that facilitated the 10% purchase of Rio Tinto. This is imo a very significant piece of news - not just for Jinshan, but for juniors and gold - I'm going to write about it in MW this week. Why? + The Chinese have bought a stake in a gold producer. Why would they want gold? +They have bought into a JUNIOR, albeit a large one. Will there be more to follow? + They were very impressed with Jinshan's mine and want, presumably, access to that expertise as well as the gold. + The will be using Jinshan as a conduit to make purchases of other miners overseas. + Jinshan's capacity for takeovers with cash, financed by Chinese, is enormous. Please post any thoughts you may have on this: Here's the news release. China National Gold Corporation Purchases Cdn$218 Million of Jinshan Securities with a Mandate to Create a Leading Global Gold Producer VANCOUVER, CANADA - Jinshan Gold Mines Inc. ("Jinshan") (TSX: JIN) is pleased to announce that China National Gold Group Corporation ("China Gold"), China's largest state-owned gold producing enterprise and its financial partners, have agreed to purchase the entire holding of Ivanhoe Mines Ltd ("Ivanhoe Mines") in Jinshan. The transaction, worth CDN$217.7 million, will see China Gold acquire Ivanhoe Mines': * Ivanhoe's entire holding of 67,520,060 common shares of Jinshan Gold Mines, at a price of $3.1115 per share; and * A Jinshan promissory note of $7.5 million issued to Ivanhoe Mines, due June 26, 2010, together with accrued interest at 12% from March 31, 2008. Upon closing of the transaction, the purchaser will replace Ivanhoe Mines as Jinshan's largest shareholder with 42% of Jinshan's issued and outstanding common shares. Ivanhoe will retain warrants to purchase up to 1.5 million common shares of Jinshan, each exercisable to purchase one Jinshan common share at $2.50 at any time up to June 26, 2009.
