5 gram Credit Suisse Gold bar selling for $664!

Isn't this a bit much for just 5 grams of gold?  It seems to me that this is what a half ounce of gold should, maybe a bit more.  I guess the old axiom is true; a fool and his money are soon parted.

well, that's the asking price.  I was surprised to see a recent one sold at 399.99 which is 1130.00 over spot gold approx as a 5 gram bar is .16oz  AGW. Did I just do your math for you Laddie??

Yep, too many of the clueless trying to jump on the bullion bandwagon while value (appears) to be down.


 


Walt, that's why I'm a bit slow jumping into the silver bullion market.


I really have no idea what to expect of silver.


But I won't make the gm vs. oz error.

Calculating wid the calculator [Sharp EL220] and with calculator having fresh battries, el Heron has calculated that a 1/2 onza de oro Troy would be 15.55 grams.  el Heron is shir that if these calculations are no correcto the ridniks will howl and rage!  nyuk nyuk!

On the old Paper Money & Chatting Bjord there was an a.snirdlee poster that practiced psychiatry widoud a license.  Perhaps we shall see that again?  The fun times might be along soon?  nyuk nyuk!   This place might become more fun than a burl of munkees! nyuk

One Nitchel charged by Lucy would be reasonable por seguro!  However the psychiatric


diagnosis by a.snirdlee is generally worthless.  He has NO medical degree that we know of!


Lucy on the other hant is a different story altogether!
