  1. Has everything been locked now? Is this only a bad dream?
  2. Hi everyone I have never stayed long in the company of people who did not appreciate this company. The current drama around the gold thread is ridiculous. The moderators are mostly opposed to this thread and topic, and the current situation is making it much less convenient to access the thread, especially if one wants to have the main forum on the screen at the same time. The floating thread indicated much better when there was action on the thread and in gold, or other parts of the economy. There is no need to discuss the relevance of gold to property, credit and the economy in general in this email once again. But I want to stress that a lot of valuable information got posted on this thread over time and I have learned a lot myself. The discussions with opponents of gold where most valuable to me. I spent a lot of time posting on this forum. Not only because the topic of house prices is so important (as a proxy for the whole credit/money market), but also because there is a good amount of knowledgeable people on this forum, and many of them posted on the gold thread. I had a lot of fun, but often it was hard work, e.g. finding the right data, article, chart or simply logical argument to counter a false or sloppy statement. No one who is giving away tediously researched information on this forum is paid to do so. It's all voluntarily, and some people simply have fun to educate or intellectually challenge others. I understand how some posters can become very upset and impatient when their efforts are ridiculed, since I believe most posters have good intentions and really post what they think is in the best interest of others to know. Anyway. The house price crash is old news. There is no way around it - it's over. Maybe it's simply time to move on and go somewhere where the information I and many others have posted here is more welcome and appreciated. Some have asked me for copies/updates of the charts I have posted many times before. Many of the charts I have posted have been taken from here: http://gold.approximity.com/gold_charts.html I also have an own thread on the Gold Is Money Forum that I update every now and then: http://goldismoney.info/forums/showthread.php?t=195370 I am also checking out Axstone's thread (and others) every now and then: http://goldismoney.info/forums/showthread.php?t=150966 Finally, I have created a new thread on Global Edge Investors on gold, which is here: http://www.greenenergyinvestors.com/index.php?showtopic=2874 I will post charts etc. on there from now on. I will browse HPC every now and then. But I will try to reduce my time on there considerably. Good luck to everyone. GF
  3. Even better: don't buy the rising market at all! OK, that's really my last post now until the gold thread issues get's solved. Bye.
  4. This thread is not just a metal thread. Gold is a macro-economic variable, the only currency that cannot be created by will/paper. The present crisis and bursting credit bubble is deeply rooted in the abolishment of the Gold-Dollar standard in 1971. And, yes, house prices (and how they relate to gold) get discussed on here too. I think it is very inconvenient to access the thread where it is now. I either need two windows, or I either miss out on the main forum or the gold thread. I therefore very much favour an unpinned version in the main forum as it was before (and was widely accepted too). I will postpone posting until we have a good solution for this (IMO, back to how it has been before). Good luck, everyone.
  5. Oh dear. Well, someone asked to pin the thread. Then someone complained about the thread being pinned. Now access to the thread has gone back to inconvenient. We should just go back to good old free-floating. Sorry Oldie, I know you do your best here, but even people on the thread have different opinions.
  6. I also liked it free-floating in the main forum the best. Two big advantages: (1) Usually only 1 or 2 clicks away. (2) The position indicates how lively the discussion is at the moment. If it's not going to be in the main forum, I might follow Pluto's example - although I hope he takes back his decision if the thread gets floated again.
  7. Bloomberg all bullish on gold today. http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=206...&refer=home
  8. Oh man, I do spend to much time on here. But the markets are jittery today. Makes for good discussions.
  9. Buffett seems to have wisened up now. http://www.iht.com/articles/2008/03/03/business/buffett.php
  10. Is the thread getting moved around again? Strange things going on.
  11. Someone sold a shed load of Dollars, it seems.
  12. Whoaaaa! Who was that!!?? EDIT: OK, it has stopped now. Pheww, that briefly looked like a moonshot to me.
  13. Scotland will crash and burn. In contrast to popular Scottish opinion, the credit crunch and UK-HPC WON'T stop at Hadrian's Wall.
  14. It looks increasingly like a commercial signal failure in silver. The shorts are heading for the hills, while the price is going up! I can easily imagine it to go to $25-$30 in this upsurge (see recently posted charts).
