Re: gold doesn't stack up

I think I should have called this "the metalhead gold investor" thread, or "how metalhead is so much smarter than everyone else for buying gold at 300/oz" or, "how metalhead fills up his life with material items to fill a void" thread. Honestly dude - you're either extremely shallow or extremely in...

Re: RE Anecdotes - Post them here!

Most of my childhood neighbourhood has sold off to new families. Houses seem to be moving fast, Upper Lonsdale area of North Van. Houses priced in the mid 800's are moving quick, of the 3 new neighbours that my parents met, all are move up buyers having purchased their first properties in early 2000...

Re: gold doesn't stack up

5-1 in my calls, with real money in the last month. How are your trades doing? I'm a mainly passive dividend investor, and only made a small addition to my SIN-UN holdings when it went down to 10.75 (which equates to a 11% yield at current distribution) in the last 30 days. 30% of my current portfo...

Re: gold doesn't stack up

Why would I give it up when it makes me money every month? This isn't real estate, stock market moves in predictable patterns and gives you decent opportunities at making money if you can determine where in the pattern we sit. Curiously, you didn't reply to my correct calls over the past month, one...

Re: gold doesn't stack up

The way the market has been it will probably reverse later and you'll end up being right Or it will continue to follow the "Rofina Effect" - the more doom and gloom thrown out the night before, the better the market does the next day :lol: Perhaps this is a new model to start tracking. 5-1 in my ca...

Re: gold doesn't stack up

Pump is done, here comes to the dump.

The bulls lost their chance to regain the market today, they were unable to break out again.
Tomorrow should be a significant down day on the DOW, nothing like todays -20 point close.

Re: gold doesn't stack up

Heres another prediction for Thompson. Tomorrow is another meltdown day for the DOW. Lets see how many calls in a row I can be right, what am I now? 4-0 in the last 30days. The last hour of the day killed it again. 40 points isn't really a melt down but definitely a downer after a mostly positive d...

Re: gold doesn't stack up

Bplace on Meth, The Hunt bros. cornered market in silver, at that time, so you have to discount for that. If China, India, and now Japan are in actuality still seeing real growth, silver's use as an industrial metal together with it's safe haven status should see it outdistance gold. True enough. I...
