If you want the physical stuff you can actually go to ebay and get some. They even sell whole bars, I've bought some at well below market value.
If you're patient enough you can find very profitable deals.


I have been a little skeptical about buying gold or silver on ebay. I mean I know I can get ripped off at my local coin shop too, but I just feel as odds are I am going to get ripped off on ebay.

You are correct! I don't have a clue


On a side note, silver is still going down. What time do the markets open/close for metals?

The US Mint actually makes pure silver coins, American Silver-Eagles And gold coins, American Eagles and Buffalo gold coins. You can get them at larger banks - you may have to order them - for fair market value.

The mint also lists Authorized dealer by state lookup that link is good for all coinage


I have quite a few of all 3 types

Metals don't have an open/close... unless your buying stocks or some form of contract from a mining company through an exchange..

Metals are not like stocks.. you don't purchase the metal through an exchange, but through a dealer.

Nasdaq Dubai Lists First Security Tied to Gold Price (Update1)
Email | Print | A A A

By Arif Sharif

March 2 (Bloomberg) -- Nasdaq Dubai Ltd., the Gulf emirate’s stock market open to issuers of all nationalities, listed a gold security today, allowing Arab investors access to the metal amid growing economic uncertainty.

The bourse began trading 50,000 Dubai Gold Securities, each representing a tenth of an ounce of gold, Jeff Singer, Nasdaq Dubai’s chief executive officer, told a news conference in Dubai today. The shariah-compliant security, an initiative of the World Gold Council and the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre, is the first exchange-traded commodity to list on Nasdaq Dubai, he added.

Dubai Gold allows investors “simple and secure” access to investing in gold bullion “without the additional cost associated with insuring, storing and transacting in physical gold,” according to a statement released at the conference.

I got a few some gold krugerrands, some silver american eagles, and a bunch of 1 ounce silver generics.

So if you buy it at the larger banks do you get it for the exact market price or do you still have to pay a fee/commission/whatever they call it when I buy my coins at the local shops?

I have a bank here that is also an authorized dealer - and it's been a while since I purchased new coinage - but I *think* it was a tad cheaper at the bank than at the dealers - don't hold me to that - I'm old and you know how memory goes when you get old

No wonder! lol. Seemed like everytime I went to check the commodities quotes on bloomberg that metals were always trading. Thanks!

Sounds like they are trying to design a hedge against falling crude prices.

Wonder how well it's going over with the local populace. It still is "paper gold" rather than physical gold.

Then again, it may go over well there

Don't worry, I consider myself young but my memory is shot! I can vouch that concussions do indeed mess up your brain

The mid east has been trying for quite a while to find a way to switch away from USD as the conduit for oil trade. The Gold Dinar is also an attempt, and since 2006 it is a real coin in Malaysia.

There are many Paper Gold funds out there, so one more isn't going to make that much of a mark. But....

If gold becomes the conduit for oil exchange, then the USD is toast

ETA:

Rally is due to too many stocks being oversold in the dump we just went through. Normal reaction - don't jump!

Funds sell too many in the tank and HAVE to buy back some of them, creating rising price. Normal, calm down
Have a bit of chamomile tea LOL

A bit simplistic, but as we have many thread readers trying to wrap their heads around what we talk about easily, here is a little easy to read "tutorial" on overbought/oversold market conditions.

And please - any of your regular thread readers, do not be afraid to ask a question about terms or anything else you don't understand - we all had to begin our understanding somewhere & there are quite a few of us in this thread that are happy to help

I hear ya Rockpuck, but you know what is really crazy - 80% of the goldbugs own paper gold and not enough physical.

Hx3 - CNBC is still trying to use Elliot Wave and Fib calculations to make sense of this market - they don't work anymore - we've been talking alot about that over at TF

OKay - so much for a rally Here's the auto news coming in

TOYOTA NEEDS A BAILOUT

Hattip to Dan721 @ TF

as Euro and Pound both improve by 1c+ /DX grinded higher all day long trying to tag the Nov 20 high of 89.25, but fell short. It's fallen to a low of 88.47 from the post-lockup high of 89.195. The solid green line it's fallen beneath was a strong and steeply-sloped uptrend channel starting on 2/23 (after the Sunday opening shenanigans, for those that were watching).

Make of it what you will. It's the hardest the /DX futures have been hit in a while
