  1. I would suggest buying some physical bullion first before venturing into mining stocks. Stocks are more speculative investments. In a financial crash, all stocks are likely to go down, including precious metals miners. You should still be able to get coins and bars at a fairly low premium. Investing in stocks is more risky and you need to make sure you know what you are doing.
  2. Many miners produce both gold and silver. Gold often has copper associated as well. I don't use Trading212 myself, but I believe Franco Nevada (FNV) and Royal Gold (RGLD) are on it. These are royalty companies, which are less exciting than miners but should rise if the price of gold goes up. First Majestic Silver (AG) is a medium-sized silver miner. Pan American Silver (PAAS) is a large silver and gold miner. This is not investment advice. The biggest gold producing countries in the world are China, Australia, Russia, South Africa, Canada, Peru, USA, Mexico and Ghana. Mexico is the b
  3. The grade varies enormously from one deposit to another. Those figures are just the minimum needed for a mine to be viable, and for silver particularly it depends on what other metals are present. Some gold deposits have 40 to 50 g/t though that would be considered bonanza grade for gold. Anything above about 8 g/t is high for a gold deposit.
  4. For those who are not already subscribed to Real Vision, they have a free channel on Youtube where they repost some older material. This item is a gem. It is an interview with Harry Markopolos, the guy who caught Bernie Madoff. He runs a whole team of auditors whose business is detecting ponzi schemes, and there are so many that he doesn't bother with schemes that are worth less than $500 million. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5-jlN_0TL4
  5. The difference in price means that gold mining is viable with grades as low as 1 grams per tonne of ore, while for silver 150 g/t is about the minimum, though it will depend a lot on what other metals are present. As a result, gold mining is much more expensive. There is a thread called Gold Miner Picks under the General Market Trading Discussions section which covers gold and silver mining stocks. I think you will need to be a premium member to participate.
  6. Something to think about...If Biden wins the election, there is a fair likelihood that his government will increase capital gains tax (CGT). Even if he doesn't have immediate plans to do so, investors will worry that he might, and there will be a rush to realize all outstanding gains before the year end to take advantage of current rates. This alone could cause a significant sell-off in the stock market, followed by a buy-back in January.
  7. The price of oil may rise on a Biden victory. Biden has said he will not ban fracking, but he probably will make it more difficult for new drilling to take place. This could cause supply to decline a little and push the price up. It would be bad for oil companies exposed to fracking, but good for others, especially ones with relatively low exposure to the USA. Bear in mind also that the green lobby is preparing to sue oil companies for the damage caused by rising sea levels. They want to extract cash from oil companies in the same way that tobacco companies were made to pay for the health
  8. Any fans of Daniela Cambone who are missing her after she left Kitko, she is now presenting for the Stansberry Research channel on Youtube. .
  9. There have been several reports that Euro Pacific - the bank owned by Peter Schiff - is under investigation for having customers who are involved in tax evasion and/or money laundering. The investigation began back in January, but has only recently made the news. It is a tough job for any bank to vet its customers and attempt to exclude those involved in illegal activities, but the authorities have been coming down hard on banks that are caught not doing all the necessary checks. https://decrypt.co/45466/peter-schiff-banked-known-criminals-tax-probe-claims
  10. I'm not a big fan of technicals myself, but if I were, we recently had a perfect example of an evening star candlestick pattern, which is supposed to be a bearish signal.
  11. BP and Shell are all about the price of oil. It has been stuck around $40 for a while now. For as long as it stays there, oil companies' woes will continue. You should not expect a recovery in the share prices unless you believe that oil will ruturn to at least $60 or so. At present, there is still a glut in production, and stocks of oil reserves are growing. The Saudis and the Russians have been cutting back a little, but both are under enormous fiscal pressure and will increase production on any sign of increased demand. Meanwhile the plague has depressed economic activity and reduced demand
  12. Does anyone know why Anglo Pacific Group (APF.L) is so cheap? I bought them two years ago at about 140, and then sold at about 190. They are now back down to 105. This is a stable, reliable company on a P/E of 7, paying a dividend of over 6%. It is a royalty company with assets in base metals and potash. I understand that it owns thermal coal royalties and these are of diminishing value, but even so, this seems ridiculously cheap for a royalty company. I'm looking to buy back in.
  13. On London, I own The Renewable Infrastructure Group (TRIG.L), which hasn't performed particularly well, but it pays a nice dividend. On Nasdaq you might care to check out Clearway Energy (CWEN) and Brookfield Renewable Partners (BEP). If you like royalty companies, check out RE Royalties (RE.V).
