    I just finished watching the first 2 (of 4) free DVD's, which I ordered from Freeman Fox.
    Freeman Fox - Financial Planning, Stock broking, Property, Finance

    The DVD was filmed at one of Peter Spanns Seminars, I think it was 'Welcome To Wealth'.

    I was wondering if anyone here is a client of Freeman Fox?
    I was curious as to what services they actually provide, and what their fees are like?

    If anyone has any general comments on the organization, or the DVD's, it would be much appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Compleks...

    Also, something that stuck out, was that Peter recommended people buy gold bullions.
    He didn't explain his reasoning for this, and I was just curious to know why he might make such a suggestion?

    Have a look at when the recomendation was made and then look at this page.

    ASX share price charts

    I know my lender will go to 60% LVR on GOLD even though it has no income.

    Thanks mate.
    Graphs are a foreign language to me, but I think I got the general idea.

    Was that graph representing prices of shares, or prices of actual gold?

    How does the inflation of gold compare to other investments?

    Does anyone here own any gold as part of their investment strategy?

    Seems like an interesting concept.

    GOLD is a listed share on the ASX.

    There are other ways to buy such as the Perth Mint. There is 1 year patch where it went great and some good short term positions along the way, not for the faint hearted casual investor though.

    I much prefer investing in those that mine it and sell it rather than those who hoard it. It has had some big ups and downs and spends a lot of time going sideways. At the monent I would say it is an underachiver.

    Energy and other less rare metals looks to be more in demand presently.

    Just my opinion though........

    Gold is a commodity and not a benchmark like before...whether we like it or not we have to accept it and treat it as such....
    Gold has may traders believe that it is an indicator of a weak dollar...in the near term NO...
    Gold has been used by hedge fund as a inflationary hedge and also to protect their dollar longs (long positions) against any future geo-political risk...
    :cool:

    how about gold future contracts... they give you the exposure of the fluctations in gold prices and you dont have to worry about insurance or transportation....

    its hard for someone to steal you .001% of Woolworths but easy for them to steal you gold bullions

    Give them a call and ask for a copy. Their number is on the site, and it's a free call, I think.

    They will take your deatails, and send you a few e-mails, letters etc... But it's all usefull information.
