Apparently not at some cash for gold places. A recent investigation by various Trading Standards and consumer advice outlets, strongly suggests that the prices being offered are far well below the going fair rate.
In fact, some of these places have been told that they must get their act sorted, or face possible prosecutions.
And you don't think that a couple of hundred tonnes of gold hitting the market would drop the price somewhat.
Which is something that Clegg doesn't seem to have considered with the proposed share offer for the part-nationalised banks.
We'll all get £1,000 of shares for example, and once the price hits a certain point we can sell them and the Government gets the £1,000 and the seller gets the profit, less the share dealers commission. I wonder if Clegg has realised that the minute the price goes above the threshold a massive number of the shares will hit the market, immediately dropping the value...

I presume these words were uttered by yet another of the countries many 'of' bodies. why cannot these people not just act instead of issuing an implied threat,which no company takes a blind bit of notice of.Oops silly me I forgot they were just set up so the great unwashed felt that the government actually gave a dam. These toothless bodies are a waste of space and money.
