Was this 'Archive' charge ever announced or did it just sneak in?

Way too expensive!!!  Almost $900 a year to access!  Is SA in such dire straits that it needs to raise this much money?  I guess I won't be going there, and very likely when I can't follow an author's link to previous work, I'll be looking elsewhere for the info.


PRO membership required to read articles

mdenton51 2 years ago in Marketplace updated by DutchPete 2 years ago 2

I keep getting yellow banners at the bottom of articles that say I must have a PRO membership before I can read the article. I have greatly enjoyed reading the articles on Seeking Alpha the past several years. I have learned a great deal about investing and traps to watch out for. I am nearing retirement  and truly value the investing insight provided by Seeking Alpha contributors. I am playing catch-up with my retirement savings and any insight is much appreciated. However, I can't afford to pay the fee required to become a PRO member. The contributors have provided these articles freely to the many readers and I do not believe that the Seeking Alpha gate keepers have the right to charge for the privilege of reading them. I will be looking for other resources to continue my investing education. I do request that the Seeking Alpha gate keepers reconsider the new policy of charging to read any articles regardless of how old they are.


UK Listed Shares

you need to incorporate international shares in foreign currencies not just ADR that nobody trade and has poor liquidity. I would suggest London listed shares as a start. Regards

Chat not working

tacguy 2 weeks ago in Marketplace updated by SA Editor Daniel Shvartsman 2 weeks ago 1

in marketplace chat, the chat function for my subscribed service (nail tech) regularly, intermittently fails. Since time is money and buy/sell alerts go out over chat, what are you doing to guarantee paid subscribers a level of quality service? When can we expect a fix? (I'm assuming chats for all your marketplace vendors experience this)


Timeshare Stock ROI and Employee Turnover

Could the impact of seasoned sales employee closers leaving timeshare tracks result in the lost sales ? In other words, losing seasoned veteran sales closers costs timeshare sites not just the recruiting, hiring, and training costs, but the far greater costs are the “lost sales”.

Do you agree or disagree that seasoned marketing and sales closers turnover from combined timeshare locations could end up killing the overall numbers and corporate ultimately could end up missing the overall plan goals?

F stock percentage change is wrong. Previous close was 10.74 not 9.74

What are the Dynamics and Future of Gold Prices

GeneHG 3 weeks ago in Marketplace updated by SA Editor Daniel Shvartsman 3 weeks ago 1

Thank you for a good list of stocks and industries to look at for investment potential. It seems that there was no mention of Gold (except for Goldman Sachs).

I am wondering if you have an outlook / prediction for price of Gold (the metal, or the miners, or Gold Vaults, or ?).

Apparently (as most people feel) the price of Gold is based on the cost of finding and mining Gold, as well as the demand for Gold. High demand leads to a higher price for Gold.  High price and high demand provides more profit for the miners.  As the price of Gold rises, there will be more prospecting and new discoveries.

It seems that new discoveries of Gold Metal are becoming less frequent and of lesser amounts (in Ounces per ton). As a result of dwindling discoveries, the Gold Reserves (Gold in the ground) are falling rapidly. It seems that there may be a shortage squeeze that leads to a gigantic price rise for Gold (until other materials are substituted - if substitutions are possible).

I understand that there are hundreds or thousands of Gold mines in our world, mainly near the major fault lines (Ring of Fire).  I am wondering what the near and long term future of Gold price is likely to be (just comparing production capability of the many miners - big and small with demand). These miners have diverse costs of mining and producing Gold (from say $400 per ounce to say $1300 per ounce).  At today's price of Gold, some miners will have little profit and may fold and others will make a good profit, will succeed and will have funds to do more prospecting and to obtain additional land to mine.  I am interested in how the dynamics will affect the price of Gold in the future.

I understand that there was a recent discovery of a large deposit of over 4000 ounces per ton. (Is it real or is that just a promotion?) That discovery may lead to an increase of the Gold reserves, or may be "just a drop in the bucket".

So, I am still wondering what will happen to the price of Gold.  Will the reserves continue to decline, will the big Governments continue buying Gold, Will investors increase their holdings because of fear, will Industrial uses of Gold rise (for the electronics of Electric Vehicles), will jewelry purchases increase?

From much worrying and corrosive care I would be free if you would choose to educate me.
