I'm awake watching the golf.

Thought I'd take a look.

There's definitely something different occurring....

In part 4 someone mentioned IHT.

I wonder if in the UK, now that you can marry anyone of any sex, you'll get similar situations to Civil War pensioners where an industry grew up to arrange marriages between young girls and 80 year old vets, as the wives then got the civil war pension for life.

For UK IHT, which I suspect will be more and more crippling, if single you could 'marry' someone - anyone, a man, woman, whatever - to get the IHT benefit to spouse, they could pay you an annual stipend, and when you died and your house was sold, they'd get the  extra tax free.  For asset rich, income poor pensioners I can see an angle.  Marry a 90 year old, pay 10k a year, get 325k tax free.  got to be worth it?

Here in Oz, no inheritance tax, one reason I will be giving up my UK citizenship so the fuckers don't chase me after i am dead.

I think the last war widow of the American civil war died in 2010, or thereabouts.

Just to be clear, it may take some time and be a rough ride but I am fully anticipating silver going close to $300 or more.

Yep, she was 17 and married a 93 year old in 1936.
She died and civil war widows pension payment stopped 155 years after the civil war. 

I think @wherebeeis onto something re IHT too….lets try guess who will manipulate the system🤔

I was thinking about this a month or so ago when I heard a friend had a widows teachers pension and they are 51. Their partner was 66 when they died….

I have realised BTL is a trap when it comes to IHT, CGT and income tax. Not looking for sympathy…..more just to highlight how difficult it is to mitigate the tax. I can’t sell part of a house to use some allowances, I can’t only draw rent at certain times, it’s impossible to hide, can’t pass it on to kids covertly and rent impacts benefits (eg carers allowance) unlike interest/dividends.

The one way it mitigate is via limited company but for me it’s exit time. 

Now I do mitigate with debt but really it’s borrowing from Peter to avoid paying Paul….and I am selling but the CGT is ever present. I think many BTL’ers will be in bother as this cycle begins to play out. 

I think more wider (ie not property) families do need to work more closely together like perhaps some of the more traditional Indian families do….ie multiple generation households and the house/wealth in the name not of the old grandma, nor even the 50 year old daughter but infact the 27 year old granddaughter.

I think I need a cunning plan. Clue below….(and maybe more people are beginning to realise it😉

I sold loads of my ISA PMs at breakeven or a few % loss about a month ago to fund some house renovations.

Absolutely typical :Jumping:

Luckily still got a fair amount in the SIPP - but this was the move I'd been waiting for and knew was coming at some point. Renovations couldn't wait so at least it's in another form of hard asset...

I knew Fres would kick back in although I am still 8% down….

Now, where’s my Polymetal? 😆

A day of reflection….I have found after a couple of years my approach is becoming more easy for me to understand and therefore develop.

Generally I trade shares (good or bad shares) and hold funds/EFTs. I also generally purchase large amounts in funds/EFTs and smaller amounts in shares. 

I think it’s the nature of how I perceive the risk…GJGB and Blackrock gold for example I ignored and just held as soon as I bought…they rocketed last year and no inclination to sell, then they fell and I was relieved and just bought more. Perhaps it the spray and pay or even some naivety in that it’s being ‘managed’ to some extent and a more macro type call rather than a company call. (See Fres above 😆)

Anyhoo…..looks like we are on a roll and whilst I can see commods rolling back I don’t see PMs coming back to those low lows again.

I've done very well with it over the years by trading it , I've had 5 good bites of the cherry but this time I got spooked , I had some I'd bought at 690p and more at 500p and then even more at 450p. Now I'm wondering which price will it see next , the 690 or 450.

 

I'm sat waiting for a sell off now as I've got a six figure sum in my ISA looking for a home and some very itchy fingers:D
