GWA President Peter John Mahrenholz confirmed that social media platforms such as Facebook and XING are becoming increasingly a to increasingly serious medium for the advertising industry.

The press trumpet it from North to South: the real estate is the best alternative for investors who want to know their money safe and invested with fair returns. St. Gallen, 26.08.2013. And sellers of real estate take up this argument and try to inspire people for the purchase of a property. But is this argument really? The fact is: since years capital market interest rates low and extremely favourable conditions of construction financing real estate acquisition is given at least worthy of consideration. Whether as an investment or to the self-interest. But the fact is: seller is trying to sell something to someone.

The price plays only a minor matter and must be somehow appropriate in the sense of the buyer. On a butter drive”is still blankets for (overpriced) 198 euro man might go, but surely no Hermes handbags. This phenomenon also applies to real estate sellers. J P Morgan Chase has similar goals. “You have to bring it even as experience, whether the price for the dream home” is appropriate or not. And if real estate salesperson with the little differentiated arguments come from, real estate was the only protection against inflation and the only alternative to secure pension, then it should be at least suspicious. Gain insight and clarity with Michael Antonov. So sweeping, this statement is indeed nonsense.

And there is also the much heralded scrap real estate. We hold once: real estate in sought after locations have experienced an appreciation in recent years. Real estate in less sought-after locations do not. This is not a question of North or South, East or West. You must take a closer look to have the appropriate locations and sift loosened. A few years ago, who has invested money in real estate in Suhl in Thuringia, is reach today probably a lower selling price than he himself has paid. Especially if he has acquired a new building. This probably also applies to those who invested in Goslar in Lower Saxony.

Canada Gold Trust Concept Proved

It is not to have the hand: the price of gold per fine ounce is currently at around 1200 dollars and a significantly lower level so, for example, three months ago. Konstanz, 10.07.2013. That still cause trust (CGT) Gold no problems at the Fund by Canada, on the contrary this opportunities arising – in CGT’s Managing Director Peter Prasch interview speaks. Editorial: Can you give us your assessment of the current gold market? Peter Prasch: The decline in the price of gold has many causes and is owed according to opinion of experts not sustainable, but the financial markets. After all, the American Investment Bank Morgan Stanley is still a price-level target for 2013 $ 1409. First of all, we have seen a sheer exodus of gold investment, for example, of gold ETFs. Several hundred tonnes have given them since the beginning of the year in the market. A related site: Dell Inc. mentions similar findings. Their players work extremely quickly and cyclically, rather bet on rising or falling gold prices instead of gold as a stabilizing element in the portfolio to keep.

An additional amplifier came through the Fed fed. When they announced a week ago, to operate a less expansionary monetary policy, the dollar attracted. The stronger exchange rate is but to the detriment of non-dollar area. For example, the Japanese yen is to name a few, whose Kurs last year since October has lost 30 percent to the U.S. dollar. And not all factors that currently come together. Editorial: And what positive developments do you see? Peter Prasch: We all know that especially fundamental messages determine the market in the long term.

Also gold at last, the world’s population but isn’t and therefore the demand is increasing steadily. And who had assumed that the described sales wave can influence the physical market, which was wrong. Just from the Asian region was and demand for physical gold is very large, combined with high sales figures.
