  1. Bosworth, I sympathise. I am tempted to do the same. I'm sick of renting. I can borrow for 5 years at 3.3%. It's a darn site cheaper than renting. I know so many people who have lived like kings the last 5 years because their mortgage costs have been so low. I'm more bearish on sterling than I am on UK property. Borrowing a load of cheap money is a way of shorting sterling. And Bubb - London house prices over the last five years, in zones 1 and 2, are up by considerably more than 55%. If you had the leverage of a mortgage, you made a lot more than that. EAs have anything between 20-40% of the properties on their books they did pre-2008. Ie the number of properties on their books is 60-80% down. The number of buyers is down by 10-20%. Nobody needs to sell. Many have chosen not to sell while they're living so cheap. How long it can go on, nobody knows. But it's keeping London prices high. Very high.
  2. I think we are about to get a buy signal on CDNX too. http://stockcharts.com/h-sc/ui?s=$CDNX&p=D&st=2007-10-01&en=(today)&id=p59321261575&a=260766893
  3. The John Mauldin thread Economic Thinker, Ahead of the Markets ========================================= (Here's a Podcast interview, with friends of GEI) / podcast downloads at end 2012 : 2,404 hits / MP3 : http://commoditywatch.podbean.com/mf/web/gkaqn4/johnmauldin.mp3 This week Dominic Frisby, together with Michael Hampton of GEI, talks to John Mauldin, president of Millennium Wave Investments and author of newsletter Thoughts From The Frontline. They discuss the recent panic in the markets, hedge funds and what's in store for us all as far away as 2027. http://commoditywatch.podbean.com/ I thank you.
  4. "DrBubb" on Gold shares etc. (interview on FBB) On his recent trip to London, trader Michael Hampton discusses gold, the stock market and the financial outlook. Good news ... though he sees a correction in the short term, Mike is bullish about gold and gold stocks. Here's a link to his charts. * Hampton believes that the upcoming presidential election in the United States is going to an big impact on both gold and the stock market. The seasonal cycle calls for a correction in the gold market in October that could result in a significant low as early as this week. Once that's out of the way Hampton expects a pretty decent upside move in the gold price. The four-year cycle in gold indicates that the year after the US elections on average sees a doubling of the gold price. His outlook for the stock market is not as bullish , as the liquidity injections of central banks seem to have a diminishing impact after each additional round. Therefore owning call options on gold or gold shares versus puts on stock indices could be an interesting trade. PLAY OR DOWNLOAD HERE LINK TO PROGRAMME HERE *Charts

  8. Hi Everyone, There was a quote that somebody had in their signature a couple of weeks ago that I can't for the life of me find but I wanted to use it for my book. It was something like ... "even if what you are trying to achieve or change is totally unrealistic, you still have to take steps to do it and sprea dthe word" but it was so much better phrased than that .... does anybody have any idea what the quote is or who's sig it was in? Thanks Fr

    Looking for a quote - can anyone help?

    I found it . It was this: Find the right answer, realise you'll never see it in your lifetime, and then advocate it anyway because it's the right answer. You've got to settle for second, third of fourth best in day to day life more often than not. There is no reason to accept anything but the best in your thinking, however. The only real personal issue is it requires you to completely give up on the idea that you will ever be all that free yourself. Accepting you can do nothing to sway tens of millions of people with muddleheaded notions any time soon is the first step to actually fixing stuff properly. Ty, Shipbuilder.
  10. Here are all the companies who have interviewed on CWR with an arrow appointing to the date at which they interviewed. Most companies rose shortly after their interview, some declined slightly, before rising, and ONLY ONE of the 17 companies who have appeared on the show is at lower price now, at time of writing, since their interview. (That is Jinshan and they are no more than a few cents down. They are soon to go in to production and I am confident their share price will rise). I am particularly proud of Regency Mining (UK:RGM) , which started to rise dramatically the day the interview was broadcast. Reading the RGM threads on ADVFN, it is clear that it is of a direct consequence of hearing Andrew Bell's interview (the president) that many have bought in. the stock has since doubled. I am not pretending FOR A SECOND that interviewing on CWR will move the price of a stock - you have to have a good company with a good story to do that - but it does seem to have benefitted companies and increased investor awareness of them. Anywat look below and make your own minds up.
  11. Life After The State (a forthcoming Book) ========= Morning All, I've written a book. I hope you don't mind me using this book to promote it ... The book contains everything you need to know. It will solve all your problems and bring profound understanding. Actually it’s a book about money and social systems – the result of all the reading and study that came with my unexpected foray into gold many years ago. I’m publishing it with Unbound, who are changing the way publishing works. Before a book is published, readers hear a pitch. If they like the idea, they can pledge to support it. In exchange for a pledge you receive rewards – in addition to the unadulterated pleasure of owning and reading the book yourself. The bigger the pledge, the bigger the reward. It's crowd-funding. I need your help to get the book published. So please go the website, hear the pitch – and, if you like the idea of it, make a pledge. Here’s the link. This book can save the world. So by helping me, you are actually helping to save the world. Saving the world is a pretty good thing to have done on a Wednesday. Here’s that link once again .

  15. The cynic is back. Dominic Frisby talks to veteran private investor, Dr John Wolstencroft. The good doctor is in great form as he outlines some other ways to think about gold that have nothing to do with debt, money printing and QE. It's all about asset allocation, see, and cost of production ... LINK TO SHOW http://media1.podbean.com/pb/186f5063009d78a19fac4410c3fa5934/507d9624/blogs/2516/uploads/2012-10-14-GMY-DF-E-58.mp3

  17. Here's no 2 of many. Greece From The Inside Dominic Frisby talks to Athens resident, former bond trader and business man, Stratos Manolas. Greece faces a dire social situation with an unemployment rate of 25%, a rise in poverty, illegal immigration and capital flight. In the years leading up to the debt crisis, Greek politicians gladly took EU subsidies without assuring the productive use of those funds, which lead to an increase in debt and corruption. At the same time the regulatory setup in Greece has hindered the entrepreneurial spirit of the country. While the latest reforms were necessary and had good elements, Manolas criticises the implementation of reforms, and how the IMF forced them upon the people. The majority of Greeks still favour staying in the euro. Manolas states that a move to the drachma and the subsequent power to manage their own currency could lead to the postponement of necessary structural adjustments. They agree that the eurozone will continue to “muddle through”. Amid the gloom though, Manolas sees some positive signals for investing in Greece. PLAY LINK HERE
