  1. Just put a years SIPP contribution into SSLN this afternoon, so that's the kiss of death for silver. Still had last years sat in there in April, put it all in SGLN. Currently up 15%. Looking at the rest of the portfolio, HSBA, RDSB, EZJ, IMB etc, PMs are saving it. GSK up from the stocks. Smith funds also OK.
  2. We were looking at houses at the start of the year. 3 have been reduced this week. £1.1m now £900k, £750k now £650k and £650k now £550k. We weren't looking at any of these, but I was aware of them. Just the start...
  3. Just got mine, exactly 3 weeks.
  4. There is usually a (at least) 5% off code available.
  5. Esafes.co.uk Used them a couple of times.
  6. I've heard that too. Certainly an.idea if things go bad at home. Remember my FEO telling me a story of how he 'had to' take someone's guns away due to some unfortunate event, that wasn't directly the result of the licence holders doing, but a family member in their household. Think he was just trying to scare me. Still, that said, I know someone under the same FEO who does things which are asking for a middle of the night visit, things which are widely known and public. They even argue with the FEO about variations and have gone over their head to HQ and asked for things the FEO has declined....and got them. Nothing happens. But definitely feels like, they'll grant you an FAC, then look for any reason to take it back.
  7. Fundsmith and Smithson were doing amazing for me. VG Life strategy, aligned to your retirement age is good, especially if you have time on your side. Have Lindsell Train too, got in the same time as the Terry Smith ones. Can't get near them. If you think the bottom is here, get in, if not, hold fire. I couldn't get near Terry's performance with the shares I chose. But DYOR!!
  8. Has anyone done this? Experiences? Also, what is the situation with tax and/or duty buying gold (Sovs/Brits) from Apmex? I got something from them, when I started out, but don't recall the experience. I know there should be nothing to pay to the courier or hmrc. But have people been stung and was it (easily) resolved? Anywhere else offer UK gold coins, payable in crypto, without high costs?
  9. Paid 10% on a card and just BACS the balance. So, now I wait.... Says 3 weeks, but have others received silver sooner?
  10. Thanks for that. Will I have to provide them with a load of ID too?
  11. Have only ever purchased from Bairds by going to Hatton Garden and handing over currency. As that isn't an option, I tried to use their website. Neither of my email addresses are recognised, so unable to sign in. It is asking for ID, which I don't want to provide (again). Using guest checkout, I get to the card details page, it states only 10% will be taken by card and the balance by bank transfer or funds on account. Can I buy it 100% on a card with no ID?? If I pay the 10% on a card, can I do the balance via BACS, without them wanting any ID? Failing that, where can i buy with just a card? Was looking at 4* 500g cast silver bars.
