Re: Perth Mint Online Depository Program

Yeah, but no one with a brain would use unallocated storage except as a temporary parking place.  I'm not sure I agree.  I think either you trust the mint or you don't.  If they're not honest enough to honor the unallocated storage, then why would anyone expect them to honor the allocated storage?

Re: Perth Mint Online Depository Program

Good discussion here. http://gyroscopicinvesting.com/forum/gold/perth-mint/ There are a lot of good posts by the user named Bronsuchecki.  He works there, I think. Isn't that discussion with regards to the certificate program which had a 10k minimum? I believe this new one doesn't have this require...

Re: OJ's Knife Found

During the Rodney King beating, some of the radio traffic included the following comment: "This is like something out of Gorillas in the Mist ." They first scene of the first episode of the FX show The People versus OJ Simpson is the footage of the Rodney King beating and LA riots.  It made me wond...

Anyone watching it?

Gotta say, the first episode was pretty promising.

Re: Crazy Doctor Talk

I have dealt with physicians in a surprising number of settings, and the one thing that I can always count on is an attitude of: "I know.  I got it.", even when it was clear that they hadn't gotten it yet.  When you are trying to provide professional services to these people it can be maddening--e....

Re: Crazy Doctor Talk

So is it any surprise that adding a lot more stress is not working out too well?  It's not too surprising, MT, that two doctors of your acquaintenance have exited stage right in the past two years.  Sadly that trend will continue.  And yes, maybe it is the nicer/sensitive people who are less likely...

Re: Time to buy CEF?

Thoughts? I think it's a reasonable thing to do, as long you're comfortable with the tracking error you'll get as compared to a PP holding only gold, and especially if it's with only a fraction of your gold allocation. I am thinking about doing it myself.  I trust CEF more than I do GLD, SGOL, IAU,...

Re: Sprott Intends to Make Exchange Offers for Central GoldTrust and Silver Bullion

And CEF, but that has a lot of silver too. Actually not a bad idea, though, especially if you don't hold a high percentage of your overall gold allocation in an ETF or close-ended fund.  I just like these Canadian funds better.  They are more transparent and less susceptible to Wall Street shenanig...
