Invest In Gold?

Recommended Posts

Hi

Is anyone considering (or already has) investing in gold? I personally think that at some point in the future we'll be hit by inflation. Also, If I took this root what is the best way to buy gold?

Thanks for any help/advice

welcome, all the answers that you want are in the gold and precious metals section along with most of the people that you want to be speaking with. In this section you may be better asking traders/investors about any downside to gold and if anyone wouldn't invest then why not. That way you can gain both perspectives and make an informed decision.

looks almost like you dislike goldholders because they are unproductive and the money sits outside of the system only aiding and protecting the owner rather than circulating in the system. Gold is not only a hedge or store but is also the ultimate anti fiat play imo.

If you don't like it then I would genuinely like to know your reasons against. Many traders dislike gold, and many that bought during the last peak hate it. There are some valid concerns so am always listening.

Ah Ok, sorry missed that section - new to the site. Cheers, S

no worries, see you in the right place.

may still be worth changing the title and asking the investors why they don't like gold just to know the cons.

Gold is in a bubble, I believe, but it is still on the way up, don't get greedy and don't get burnt.

I'm In PM's so please don't accuse me of being a doubter.

Just brought £9000 worth last week on bullion vault - may go up may not, Money week keeps touting it! If it does go up I'll probably cash in half of it to give me a safety net against holding the other half in case it drops significantly. When you make a purchase at bullion vault 0.8% commision is charged when purchasing and the same when selling.

I believe most people on here are geared towards purchasing a home with their savings and differ from the traders in that respect. Looking back at house prices priced in gold and even if you missed selling out at the 1980 peak you still had a five year window to redeem your gold for a house.

The chart needs updating as we are now at around 250 ounces of gold for a house.

Is there a point to this? i don't see any correlation between UK house prices and the price of gold. If there were then your graph would show some sort of buy signal around 1995/96. It doesn't.

One idiot goldbug used to talk about average house prices always reverting to 100 oz of gold. He would have missed out on the late 80's boom too, presumably waiting for a 50% fall from 1988 prices.

That idiot goldbug has in just 3 years doubled the purchasing power of their savings by converting pound sterling into gold.

In 1995/96 I was firmly in cash savings and there was no need to even think of buying gold nor did I miss out on buying a property.

The 1990's is light years away from where we are now and our present situation is comparable with the 1970s and 1930s.

100 ounces here we come. ;)

So the graph only works for the 1930s and 1970s does it? Have you ever heard the saying about the stopped clock?

They made quite a few hot stock picks recently (past few weeks) - some people slate the publication as the editors are uber-bearish on houseprices perhaps?
