Richard asks…

Investing in gold vs silver?

Silver is way cheaper($39.00 an ounce currently) while gold is $1700 an ounce.Is there a greater demand for gold?Would silver be safer then gold?Which one would produce a bigger return per gram say during a time of conflict/uncertainty.Any tips for investing in precious metals?I’ve read through a couple books.

I could buy 1/2 troy ounces of gold or buy alot of silver,which is the smarter option?What are the advantaged and disadvantages of both?

financi4 answers:

The different nominal prices means nothing in terms of whether one is a better investment than the other. Gold has always been more highly valued than silver, as a result of supply and demand. Gold is simply rarer and harder to come by than silver. It does not help you that you can buy more ounces of silver. It doesn’t matter than one costs more or less per ounce than the other, all that matters is the future change in price, which no one can predict (though a lot of people seem to think they can).

I’m not a commodities expert, but I would guess one is basically as good or bad an investment as the other. If gold is cheap, silver probably is too; and if gold is overpriced, silver probably is also. They both tend to go up or down in price following the same trends.

Paul asks…

Investing in physical gold and silver?

I’m starting to buy gold and silver now to prepare for hyperinflation. I sometimes see “Troy ounce” What’s the difference between ounce and troy ounce? Is one more pure than the other?
how many ounces are in a gram?
how many ounces are in a gram?
how much ounces in a grain?
how much ounces in a grain?

financi4 answers:

The troy ounce is heavier than the typical grocery store (avoirdupois) ounce used in the USA. When you purchase a 1 ounce silver or gold coin, you are receiving a “troy” ounce.

1 Troy ounce = 31.1034768 grams

1 grain = 0.00208333 ounces (Troy)

1 gram = 0.0321507466 troy ounces

Steven asks…

what should i invest my $500 in?

I’m 17 years old and have $500 to invest. What is something i can invest in that will give me good returns? Is investing in gold & silver good? please let me know.

financi4 answers:

A new petrol lawnmower so you can make a LOT more than $500 every single week in the proceeding months …gold and silver are just not in the same league as cash for a few hours work each day and its ALL tax free…just think how much you will have by Winter…

Robert asks…

What precious metal should I invest in?

I am 13 years old and have realized that all the paper money I have saved will not hold its value in the long run as well as precious metals, so i have decided to invest in gold or silver. What I am wondering Is, which is a better investment, gold or silver.

financi4 answers:

None right now. The prices of precious metals are ridiculously inflated at this time. There is no way they will stay this high, and in my opinion this is the worst time to invest in gold and silver.

Thomas asks…

is gold and silver ok,to invest in,?

financi4 answers:

No. They are expensive and worth nothing. Trust me.

William asks…

Investing In Gold And Silver?

How can I invest in these?

financi4 answers:

If you buy real gold and silver, you need space to store them. If you put them in bank, they will charge you every month.

But some forex broker provide the instrument to buy gold and silver with leverage. You pay less and have no other fees involved.

John asks…

What is the best way to play music in your car from an iPhone?

Does anyone use the iTrip with the iPhone or know names of products that make it easy? The cd player in my car isnt mp3 ready so im wondering what would be the best way. Should i wire it all up to play them or should i get the iTrip FM Transmitter. thanks!

Justin answers:

If you have an aftermarket cd player, you can probaby purchase one of two options to solve your problem. The first is merely a cable that connects to the rear of the cd player and to the headphone jack on the iPhone/iPod. This allows you to change songs as you normally would by using the iPhone. The second option(which I personally use and recommend) is a bit more expensive. It is the same as the first except there is a small computer processor involved. My cd player has one built into it, while the previous cd player I had did not. I had to buy a “small box” that had a cable running from it to the cd player and another to the iPod. This connects to the iPod at the serial port onthe bottom and allows you to control the Ipod from the face plate of the cd player, and charge the iPod simultaneously.

If you have an older aftermarket cd player, the first option is probably the only one for you. You may want to purchase a car charger for the Iphone if you go this route.

The iTrip is absolute crap. It is merely a radio transmitter which doesn’t work if you live in an area that has a high number of radio station. (I.E. Indianapolis of all places) By running a cable from the back of the cd player to the Ipod, the sound quality will be exactly what you are used to hearing through the headphones, not a downgraded radio version of your music.

Charles asks…

How much do you pay monthly for an Iphone 3g?

How much do you pay a month? I wouldn’t plan on getting Internet with it, so would the price per month be lowered? I would like to go with Telus as well.

And also.. What is voice control and voice memo on the Iphone? I’d like to get the 8GB, and the 16GB looks very tempting but expensive too.

Is there anything else I should be aware of before purchasing it? Pros and cons?

Justin answers:

The $30 monthly iPhone data plan is a requirement, there is absolutely no way around it. Voice control basically allows you to speak the words “Call Bob” and the phone will place the phone call without you having to dial the number. You can also say the name of a song and it will play without you having to access your music files. Voice memo is a microphone that records audio.

Mark asks…

How do I transfer movies and videos from my iphone to my imac for free? What do I need to download?

I don’t want to have to pay for anything, so please if there is a free way please tell me.

Justin answers:

Below is a link to an iLounge article. ILounge is a great guide for all things iPod. If you go to the iPod 101/201 section, there are a number of tutorials on how to do many different things with your iPod and iPhone.

The article below talks about three different ways of getting content off of your iPod/iPhone:

-Paying for a program. This may not be what you want to do, but the programs you pay for generally give you the best return. You can get all of the information about the content you transfer (song play counts, ratings, etc.) with some of the programs you pay for, plus be able to recover additional content. Again, it may not be the way you want to go, but it’s the easiest and best way to get content off of your iPhone.

-Get a free program. Some of these programs are only designed to get content off of iPods, and may not be able to recover videos. But, they’re worth checking out before you pay for something. You’ll also probably lose the additional information (play counts, etc.) if you use a free program.

-Do it manually. I never recommend doing this, because you stand potential to damage the database that your iPhone uses to access the song information, and may not even work with iPhones. The database was also not designed to be read by real people, so you will have to dig to find your content.

I’d recommend paying for a program, as it gives you the most flexibility and the best chance of recovering your content. I use CopyTrans on my desktop, and it lets me back up all of my content from my iPhone, which is great for any number of different circumstances.

By the way, if you’ve purchased the videos, you can just click on your iPhone and click on “Transfer Purchased Content”. As long as your computer is registered under your name, you can play any movies you download off of your iPhone.

Hope this helps!

Steven asks…

How do I fix my car stereo problem?

I purchased a new car stereo and it’s installed properly. I wanted to plug in my iphone so it can charge and play simultaneously, instead it charges and plays one song and has a white screen saying “Accessory connected”. I can’t switch from that screen. I’m using a regular USB cable and I want to be able to scroll down my music playlist. How do I fix this? Is there a setting or something somewhere?

Justin answers:

Is your ipod jailbroken? If it is, this will occur. So what you should do is make a playlist, and if you don’t want to do that, all you gotta do, is unplug you ipod, pick the song, and re plug it.

Daniel asks…

Where can I go to learn the very basics of stocks?

I’ve been pretty interested in stocks for awhile now but I have never really gotten into learning more about trading and buying/selling stocks. I have some really basic knowledge about ET Fs, bonds, mutual funds and things like that but I feel like I barely know anything about actually using a site like etrade to begin. It may seem silly but I borrowed Investing For Dummies from my friend.

Anyway, if you guys could give me some sites or maybe even books to really help me get started, that’d be amazing. Also, I’d like you to know I’m 17 years old so I don’t think I’d actually be able to invest some real money into stocks as of now, I’d just like to know a little bit more about the whole idea.

Thanks in advance

financi4 answers:

It’s nice to start out young and you should get a lot of information to give you a bird’s eye view as early as now. You may want to look into penny stocks which range from $1-$5 give or take. It’s not really lucrative in real time but at least you get a hands on feel of trading. You can also look out for trading software’s that will also help you analyze stock data, predict the market etc.

Its always best to consult a professional broker or financial adviser to get an experienced advice and knowledge on the matter. What ever investment option you take would involve risk so get as much possible information for you to come up with an informed decision.

Good luck in your investment endeavor.

Donald asks…

With 40k would you invest in real estate or gold and silver?

What is the best way to spend 40k?

Justin answers:

Gold and Silver are too speculative. Over last 10 years they have appreciated nicely so many people have come to believe that they are safe. However we need to keep in mind that Gold touched a high of $900/Oz in 1980 and and then over next 23 years constantly kept going down in value and reached a low of $270!!! Can one imagine to wait that long and take 75% loss in value? See the chart here. Click or copy and paste:
http://www.futuresbuzz.com/gc.bmp

Same goes for silver. It touched a high price of $40 in 1980 and for people who invested at that price saw price hover around $5 or so over next 25 years!!
Http://www.futuresbuzz.com/si.bmp

There is no guarantee that the same thing can’t happen again in those two commodities. Actually chances are it will repeat in my opinion.

So, out of the 3- Gold, silver and Real Estate-, Real Estate is the best choice. It also offers very nice income these days particularly when interest rates are low.

Steven asks…

What company is the best to invest in right now?

What company do you think will do well within the next few months in the stock market? What company would be my best bet investing a few hundred in?

Justin answers:

Silver stocks. Down historically. The only way to go is up up up. After elections will be the time the Plunge Protection Team(PPT) gives up on trying to manipulate precious metals markets down to hide inflation/weak dollar.

I’m liking C’ouer D’alene and i’ve put my money where my mouth is. (stock symbol CDE) Also Yamana Gold (AUY)

David asks…

Is it a good ideal to buy silver bullion?

I been thinking of buying silver billions.just don’t know when would it bee a good time.or should I just keep my money?

Justin answers:

Many financial experts, including Howard Ruff, suggest buying silver right now because it’s still not in line with it’s historical relationship with gold. Check out this article from his blog. Http://blog.nineyearmortgage.com/invest-in-silver/

Joseph asks…

Is silver a better investment than gold?

I’m gonna be working this summer and I am also planning on putting most of my money towards investments. Are silver and gold good investments that will make me more money, or are there any other options.

Justin answers:

Have a bag of junk silver lying around, as protection against total financial collapse, and invest in companies that dominant their markets and pay consistent dividends for the long run.

Ken asks…

what are the first steps of local economic recovery?

How can poor people prepare for currency collapses when they don’t have money to buy gold or silver?

Justin answers:

Stay away from gold and other precious metals that have already skyrocketed in terms of price. Poor people need to do what all other people do to ensure a positive future. Spend less and save more! Don’t chase investments that are already inflated either. People have a natural tendency to want to buy something that is already had a good run because they think it will go higher. Gold is at all time highs still and there isn’t much reason to think its going to continue this run much higher. Find a good stock and invest in it. Many are trading at low P/E ratios and there is a good opportunity to make money. Have a buy price is mind and a sell price. Put in a stop loss order to prevent a big market swing from killing you. Follow this advice and you should do fine.

Daniel asks…

Im wanting to Make silver wire jewelry that is melted together in places.?

I was given a roll of silver wire since I’ve recently started jewelry making. I want to be able to soften or melt the wire in places and connect it to the other jewelry pieces. Is that an option w a torch? What else would I need? And what are some good steps to try? Would another metal work better? Something that wouldn’t turn your skin green though…. Any suggestions nice comments would be great!

Justin answers:

You’ll need an annealing torch and you’ll need silver solder. The annealing torch will soften the metal and make it easier to work with, but to make the metal stick together you should use silver solder. Solder can be used with either the torch or with a jeweler’s soldering iron with a fine tip. Don’t buy from an electronics store -invest in a proper jewelers torch and jeweler’s soldering iron. I prefer the torch. I thought the iron would be easier but it wasn’t. Gold is slightly easier to work with than silver -but far more expensive. For small joins I like silver paste -it has the flux and silver pre-mixed so there’s no guessing and you can use only what you need. There’s less mess to clean up. You can also buy soldering wire and you must use flux so the silver jewelry component and the solder will mix and meld.

There’s lots on line about using silver wire, annealing, soldering and more. There’s a steep learning curve -you won’t be making designer quality jewelry overnight. Be prepared to spend some time experimenting and learning the technique. Use safety equipment such as glasses and gloves. Practice safe torching and soldering -both are tools that can burn your house down if used unsafely. Keep a working fire extinguisher close by and don’t even think of working on a wood or laminate surface!

Here are a few simple resources to start, you will need to do lots of independent reading and practicing: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-solder-for-Jewelry-purposes/
