Gold Dips 0.5% on Monday, July 25


In the start to the new trading week on Monday, platinum inched higher while gold, silver and palladium declined.

Gold for August delivery shed $8.30, or 0.5%, to settle at $1,719.10 an ounce on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange.

"July has proven to be a tough month for gold with the dual pressures of rising interest rates reducing gold’s appeal due to its lack of yield," Rupert Rowling, market analyst at Kinesis Money, wrote in a Monday note reported by MarketWatch.

It’s like a seesaw. I’m just sitting on mine and hoping when I do sell, it’ll be up.


First-On-Thread watch out for that Seesaw


Me Too


Sell Sell Sell Antonio,


Got my US Marines 2.5 ounce silver medal today; it’s huge and fills up the whole box used for delivering the ASE’s. This sucker is heavy – I could use it as an anchor.

Now, the good news, the US Mint did it again – OOPS they did it again – my medal has a major error and I’m going to sell it for 20 times what I paid for it.


As it turned out about 8 times rather than 20


You still made out good. Here’s to Error Coins!


Cheers to Error Coins


Can’t top that
