    Martlet got a reaction from dicker in I learnt a valuable lesson today.   
    Classic fake MO, the goods are untested, not sure, maybe plated no refunds.  This is to not fall foul of Ebay rules, knowingly selling counterfeit items.  If someone even suspected they were real you'd have them down the pawn shop or webuyanyoldgold.com. 
    I think there are a few genuine cases of unknown valuables out there, odd bit of silver in a pile of old coins, a rare sovereign sold as bullion.  But far, far more is trying it on.  My favourite is a chap from Essex who's been selling a dozen house clearance lots every week for over a year, house must have belonged to Scrooge McDuck.
    The thing to look for is the fonts, they are just not right on fakes and the definition of hair in Krugs or Sovs, is too deep without enough detail.  Look on a couple of dealers then compare to "House find" ebay lots and its obvious when you know what to look for.

    The great flaw in all technical analysis, events.  It is tea leaves, though i enjoy it and when you see the patterns work, especially confluence of two or more, its becomes compelling.  Really the best use is to give guidance on entry and exit price targets.

    I've modified the velocity to twice that of the original. now when everyone settles
    their personal iou's(using the same £20) you can see that the price of goods and
    services have doubled(inflation) without the need for more currency to be printed.
    the same £20 has now created £320 of gdp(ie it has circulated twice per person).

    Your response is obtuse, either lacking in understanding or intelligence.
    I find it is very often useful in understanding concepts to look at extremes and the opposite viewpoint. If you are able to understand and accept my example, which is quite easy really, it will help you to understand the other extreme which you seem incapable of at the moment.
    Oh, and I didn't say "Currency Velocity can increase Currency supply" as you incorrectly state, please read more carefully. I said it can effectively do so.
    I have shown you an example of how low velocity can effectively reduce the money supply. It really shouldn't be that difficult to understand how the opposite must be true.
    Therefore my previous statement is quite obvious. You must take the money velocity into consideration before you make sweeping statements about money supply.

    Rather than torturous circular arguments, using your own belief as support for your own belief, you could simply point to some reference material to back your position.  Until then i'll tap out.

    I see other get this wrong, i'd expect an expert to understand the terminology better. Deflation (and inflation) is relating only to prices, not to currency supply.

    Because you say so?  Not much is it, i was hoping for some solid technical analysis of the price and why that leads to a particular target.  I could say price can go to $1200, because thats the 78% fibonacci retracement level from last low end of 2015, and saw support in late 2018.  You say its going $385 ner ner.  The thread would so much more valued if you shared some of the years of trading experience.

    Ok it’s not perfect but it’s the latest I could find.  And I know, I know, it’s the Guardian, but they do link to the source of the survey.

    This report is dated yesterday (May 31st) and unless I’ve misunderstood it, suggests that 13% have fallen behind on rent.  Although I can see why @Rocky2000 may have got confused with his 50%.  My bolding...

    Would you like to link to real numbers relevant to the conversation, UK domestic rental market?  The youtube was anecdotal and focused on US commercial rent.

    What gave you the impression of such a small saving?  They can be 5-10% cheaper than others, or simply stock something others dont.

    The data is there, just so many ways ONS report data it can be difficult to find.  This ONS page shows the influenza data in the downloadable data for section 3.  In the UK multiple illness are reported in death certificates.  
    To add, that data set also shows how substantial the death from Covid has been, as many deaths in ~2 mth as in 5 mths for flu.

    Martlet got a reaction from KDave in FTSE big crash   
    There
    There is more to services than finance.  Having a phone installed is a service, a shop is a service, having some website developed is a service.  Basically anything not manufacturing things or agriculture is service sector. There's little chance of returning to high volume manufacturing unless efficient to do so.  Its worthing noting the UK manufacture far more than at any other time in history, its just the service sector grew more and employment reduced due to automation.  High value, high tech goods are made, rather then low value volume that can be imported cheaper than we can make.  Just as manufacturing replaced agriculture. We move on along the value chain.

    This shows a good example where silver has the edge over buying gold . For anyone building a house extension or even a new build project these heavy black boxes can be used to fabricate internal and external walls. They are great for hanging radiators on , nice strong fixing points. They will also maintain their value and be useful when times are hard .

    Seems an interesting difference of behaviour between east and west.  We start from believe gold will help preserve wealth over long term or through troubled times.  Here we are mid-crisis, in the west we want to buy more for the future expecting prices to rise.  The east sell for the here and now, not giving a jot for the price trend, as gold has served its purpose.
