Advice on buying gold/silver in UKSubmitted by Willl on Fri, 10/26/2012 - 00:49
Bill Hicks once called Britain a 'socialist f###ing nightmare'. And it is an incredibly closely controlled society, and the most surveilled country in the Western world. Hopefully it's not all that bad and at least we have Nigel Farage who seems to be making some inroads. Am thinking of buying some gold/silver but have no idea where and how wd be a good way to buy it.
Have heard of the problem of precious metals being a) not accessible in real terms,i.e. you can buy stock in it but not actually get yr hands on it; and b) of 'blacklisted' precious metals, gold in particular, which can be bought but not sold because no buyer is allowed to buy it.
Can anyone with experience in the UK market give me some tips?
