  • Currently Central Fund of Canada (symbol: CEF) is trading at a 6.1% discount to NAV: http://www.centralfund.com/Nav%20Form.htm The fund is roughly half gold/half silver.  At times the NAV can get to 5+%, so if you buy at a discount like this, it can be very rewarding.  Owning physical is great of course, but if you’re looking to add more to your holding, this is a smart way to do it.

  • Hi there! Can anyone give me some initial advice on where and how to purchase and store physical gold? I’ve never done this before and I figure this is probably the most trustworthy forum for such advice. A bit about my situation. I’m from the UK (Northern Ireland) and have bought gold coins in the past but these were always delivered to me and are in my own possession. I want to buy and store a much larger amount as safely as possible because holding this gold myself is not really an option. My reasoning is that I am considering selling my house and travelling around the world on a motorbike. Ultimately I would like to buy a rental property somewhere that would provide me with some passive income while I travel but would probably rule out the UK. This means I need to put the value somewhere in the mean time and it certainly is not going to be put in a bank! Thanks

  • Speculators, Take a look at the recent Precious Metals Summit for 2016. It has a vast amount of company presentations but consider paying particular attention to the Ross Beaty interview and the other keynote presentations.   http://www.gowebcasting.com/conferences/2016/09/14/precious-metals-summit

  • How will people generate income and/or put food on the table as A.I. and automation continue to become more capable, self-learning, and cheaper? Eventually humans will be “unemployable”, much like horses are “unemployable” today, except for narrow novelty purposes (entertainment, sport, horse drawn carriages, etc.). How do we prep for technological unemployment?

  • What are you growing in your garden this years? Do you have any photos to share? As of this writing my wife and I have English and snap peas, lettuce, carrots, radishes, and leeks going from seed. We have kale still going from last fall that we over wintered and our seedlings for the remainder of our crops are about ready to transplant.
