Going into a pawn shop and selling physical gold is where you phuqed up. You DESERVE to lose ALL of it, idiot. If you want to give away the rest of it, post your email address here and let's talk. I'll give you mailing instructions. SHEESH! What a moron.
If you have a one ounce gold coin – keep it – and consider yourself blessed for your foresight and good fortune. This economic cluster ph *ch is a long way from over. But, if you do have to sell it – go to a local coin shop. An honest broker will give you spot. At worst case you will get ten percent under and purchase at ten percent over.
When this economic scheme falls apart – the hordes of city folks are heading your way. Don’t worry most will not make it - they will kill each other in the chaos and confusion on the way out of the cities, and most will run out of water, food and gas along the way. One in ten will make it. Shoot all the bankers on sight and give them no quarter.
I have no position in Gold and have never had a long or short position in Gold. My comments are for the good of society and to counter in some small way the damage that you Gold manipulators are doing to the nations psyche (and red-necks are a crucial part of the psyche).
I am a PhD in Chemical Engineering from the top schools in this country and also visiting stints to the top schools in the world. Worked for the top international companies. Have worked in factories, blue chip corporate research facilities. Go ahead and test my knowledge :-)
Now retired (early) and live in (smallish) big city Alabama.
A redneck is stupid, is stupid, is stupid. Most rednecks know that but are too bullheaded to do something about it.
