I'm baffled! How do you reason that gold has no real value, and in the same post recommend equities?I would advise against buying Gold. It has no 'real value' anymore and was just an old way of transporting a sum of money from a to b.
Certain u.s. equities are the way to go forward.
No, I had a family member get them off ebay(Silver eagles) for me in the US. They were here last week and gave them to me. I did buy 5 Silver Maples off ebay from some guy in Dublin and didn't pay vat. If you get them in the US it's a lot cheaper.Uncle sam ie
Did you have to pay vat on silver coins?
Thats the brilliant thing about investing. One succeeds or fails based on their own analysis.FlyFishing,
I think your on the wrong end of this money cycle. Equities, real estate and even the dollor, pound and euro are on a sprial down. Gold is only asset holding it's own...
i'm being charged 0.3, i was on the 0.1 for about 16 months then got a mail last summer i think saying the fees were changing. I'll doublecheck with them. Still pleased overall though.Are you sure that's right. I have an account with www.goldmoney.com and the fees are minimum 0.1 goldgrams per month or 0.15% per annum, whichever is higher. So far I have found them very good to deal with, and opening an account was straightforward.
