The Article Cash4Gold Does not Want You To Read

By Ben Popken and Meg Marco

If you have any broken, ugly jewelry lying around in a drawer somewhere, you've probably taken notice of a company called Cash4Gold that promised to pay "top dollar" for your not-so-precious precious metals. If you're like us, you might have even seen a post on ComplaintsBoard.com by a former employee exposing Cash4Gold.

The whistleblower's post appeared on ComplaintsBoard last November. We featured it this February, as part of our ongoing coverage of Cash4Gold, after the company raised its public profile with a multi-million dollar Super Bowl ad. The post was indeed written by an ex-employee, Michele Liberis, who is now being sued by the company for defamation. Recently, Cash4Gold added Consumerist and ComplaintsBoard as co-defendants in its lawsuits (PDF) against Liberis and another former employee, Vielka Nephew (PDF), in an attempt to force us to take the information down. Liberis and Nephew have chosen to stand up to Cash4Gold's legal attack, and so have we.

How to Invest in Gold Safely

Invest in Gold Without Getting Scammed


Investing in gold and other precious metals is one of the best ways to maintain your footing in an otherwise unstable economy. But while gold, silver, platinum (and their lesser known cousins ruthenium, rhodium, palladium, osmium, and iridium) have maintained their status as solid investments, you need to be wary of unscrupulous dealers and the many scams they perpetrate on unsuspecting investors.

Loan Limits Extended through 2010 by Congress

Loan Limits Extended through 2010 by Congress


Today, Congress approved an extension of higher loan limits for FNMA, FHLMC, and FHA (Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac & FHA) that will extend the current loan limits in place for 2009 to the end of 2010. This will help avoid any disruption in the mortgage market as the housing sector tries to recover.


The loan limits for your area can be found by clicking on the following links:
FHA Loan Limits for high cost counties
Fannie & Freddie Loan Limits for high cost counties
VA Loan limits for high cost counties


VanDyk Mortgage offers FHA Jumbo, Conventional Jumbo (Fannie & Freddie), and VA Jumbo loans in all areas that we service. The VA Jumbo Loan limits are not official yet, but they are based on the GSE Loan limits approved by this bill, so we anticipate no changes to VA limits.


The extended 2009/2010 FHA/Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac loan limits retain the high end at $729,750 in higher cost counties such as Los Angeles, Santa Clara, San Francisco, Orange County, Bay Area cities, and more. San Diego County remains at a max 2009 FHA Loan Limit of $697,500 for a single family residence.



The extended 2009/2010 VA loan limits retain the high end at $737,500 in higher cost counties such as Los Angeles and Orange County, $1,094,625 in San Francisco, San Mateo, Marin, Alameda, & Contra Costa Counties, $937,500 in San Benito & Santa Clara counties, $805,000 in Santa Cruz county, and more. San Diego County remains at a max VA Loan Limit of $593,750 for a single family residence for 2010. Here is a post on the 2009 VA limits that may be helpful.

We are very excited about these enhanced possibilities for our Veterans & Active Duty Personnel. Please call Brian Skaar at 760-752-4480 or visit us online at www.vandykfunding.com to find out more. VanDyk Mortgage is a VA Direct Lender (since 1987). We are the VA Experts. We offer VA loans accross America including: California, Washington, Arizona, Texas, Florida, Georgia, & more.

Federal Home Renovation Tax Credit ( part 3 )

Work performed by electricians, plumbers, carpenters, architects

Generally, work performed by electricians, plumbers, carpenters, architects, etc.
in respect of an eligible expense qualifies.

Family member hired for renovations

Expenses are not eligible if the goods or services are provided by a person related to you, unless that person is registered for the Goods and Services Tax/Harmonized Sales Tax under the Excise Tax Act. If your family member is registered for GST/HST and if all other conditions are met, the expenses are eligible for the HRTC.

Eligible dwellings

An eligible dwelling is a housing unit that is eligible to be your principal residence or that of one or more of your family members at any time between January 27, 2009, and February 1, 2010.

In general, a housing unit is considered to be your principal residence when it is owned by you and ordinarily inhabited by you, your spouse or common-law partner, and your children. This means that any dwelling that you own and use personally could qualify, including your home or your cottage.

Cottages

If you own and use your home and cottage personally, eligible expenses incurred for both properties will normally qualify for the HRTC. Note that the maximum amount of eligible expenses you can claim for the HRTC is $10,000 per family.

Rental and/or business use of an eligible dwelling

If you earn business or rental income from part of an eligible dwelling, you can claim the HRTC only for expenses incurred for the personal-use areas of the dwelling.

Condominiums and co-operative housing corporations

For condominiums and co-operative housing corporations, your share of the cost of eligible expenses for common areas qualifies.

Eligibility period

The HRTC is based on eligible expenses for work performed or goods acquired after January 27, 2009, and before February 1, 2010, under an agreement entered into after January 27, 2009, related to an eligible dwelling.

The Home Ownership Accelerator is back

The Home Ownership Accelerator is back! (aka the HOA).

We are proud to announce that we are again offering the Home Ownership Accelerator loan (HOA).

One of the unfortunate casualties of the Mortgage Meltdown was the Home Ownership Accelerator loan program. This loan program allowed USA homeowners the power to utilize interest saving techniques used in Australia & much of Europe to pay off their Home Mortgage Early without paying any extra money each month. The Program has helped thousands of US homeowners speed up their loan payoff by years while maintaining their current lifestyle and no reduction in available spending money.

The program was a victim of the credit crunch and was halted in the summer of 2008, as Secondary loan markets were cut off for non vanilla loan types. These are not risky loans. In fact, when paired with Responsible Homeowners with financial discipline, these are a fantastic wealth builder. Unfortunately, the emotions of Wall Street froze the product for most of 2008 & 2009.

We are proud to announce that the Home Ownership Accelerator is back, and VanDyk Mortgage has been chosen to be an exclusive Lender Partner for the re-introduction of the Home Ownership Accelerator program. This product won't be available to all Lenders and Brokerages this time around. VanDyk Mortgage was selected as an exclusing partner for the HOA due to our strong track record in origination of quality loans properly matched to clients for the best fit, affordability, and sustainability.

If you would like to find out if the HOA or Home Ownership Accelerator is right for you, or would like to get started on your HOA, send an email to us at HOA@vandykfunding.com or call Brian Skaar at 760-752-4480.

VA Home Loans with Fico's as low as 600 still available

VanDyk Mortgage is proud to announce that we offer VA Loans for our Veteran and Active Duty Military Borrowers with fico scores as low as 600.

Many VA Lenders have begun to require minimum Fico scores for VA Loans of 640 in recent months. This is not due to changes in the VA Loan Program, or mandates from the Veterans Administration (who oversees the VA Loan program), these are individual Lender requirements from many of the big banks & lenders (yes, the same ones we all bailed out with our Tax Dollars).

VanDyk Mortgage is proud to announce that we have VA Loans available for Borrowers with fico's as low as 600. These are available for VA Purchase, VA Refinance, or VA Cash out. Many home buyers begin the home buying process with an acceptable score for their lender such as 642, then find after the arduous homebuying process with Short Sales and REO Bank owned properties that their score has fallen below 600, and their lender can no longer help. Call us immediately in this situation, we may be able to help.

We are able to offer this program for two reasons. First, this loan will not be sold in the secondary market, so it is not subject to the additional underwriting and qualification requirements that other banks require.

We offer VA Jumbo Loans up to the full county limit for your area, and even go above the county limit when there is sufficient down payment and entitlement to reach your minimum 25% guarantee for the loan. Here is another post that covers that subject: The VA 417K myth.

VA Jumbo's are the best way to purchase a million dollar home with less than 20% down payment in many California counties and areas. In fact, VA Jumbos are the best way to buy a home that is over $417K in most California Counties. Here is a list of County VA Loan Limits:

FHA loans still available with Fico's as low as 580

VanDyk Mortgage is proud to announce that we offer FHA Loans for Borrowers with fico scores as low as 580.

Many FHA Lenders have begun to require minimum Fico scores for FHA Loans of 640 in recent months, and will not fund FHA loans with a middle fico score under 640, or under 620.

Federal Home Renovation Tax Credit ( part 2 )


Some businesses or individuals may assert that certain items qualify for the HRTC. It is important to remember that you are responsible for ensuring that all eligibility requirements are met when you claim this credit on your tax return.


Examples of eligible expenses

  • Renovating a kitchen, bathroom, or basement, windows and doors
  • New carpet or hardwood floors
  • New furnace, boiler, woodstove, fireplace, water softener, water heater, or oil tank
  • Permanent Home ventilation systems, central air conditioner
  • Septic systems and wells
  • Electrical wiring in the home, home Security System (monthly fees do not qualify)
  • Solar panels and solar panel trackers
  • Painting the interior or exterior of a house
  • Building an addition, garage, deck, garden/storage shed, or fence
  • Re-shingling a roof
  • A new driveway or resurfacing a driveway
  • Exterior shutters and awnings
  • Permanent swimming pools, hot tub and installation costs (in ground and above ground)
  • Landscaping
  • Associated costs such as installation, permits, professional services,equipment rentals, and incidental expenses
  • Fixtures - blinds, shades, shutters, lights, ceiling fans, etc.

Note

Window coverings, such as blinds, shutters and shades, that are directly attached to the window frame and whose removal would alter the nature of the dwelling are generally considered to be fixtures and therefore would qualify for the HRTC.

In some circumstances, draperies and curtains may qualify for the HRTC, if they would not keep their value or usefulness if installed in another dwelling. If these qualifying criteria are not met, it is likely that draperies and curtains would not qualify for the HRTC.

Examples of ineligible expenses

  • Furniture, appliances, and audio and visual electronics
  • Purchasing of tools
  • Carpet cleaning
  • House cleaning
  • Maintenance contracts (e.g., furnace cleaning, snow removal, lawn care, and pool cleaning)
  • Financing costs

Federal Home Renovation Tax Credit


Federal Home Renovation Tax Credit (HRTC)

Only available for the 2009 tax year. The Home Renovation Tax Credit is a non-refundable tax credit based on eligible expenses for improvements to your house, condo or cottage.


It can be claimed on your 2009 income tax return. It applies to eligible purchases made after January 27, 2009, and before February 1, 2010. The HRTC applies to eligible expenses of more than $1,000, but not more than $10,000, resulting in a maximum non-refundable tax credit of $1,350 [($10,000 − $1,000) × 15%].

Who is eligible for the HRTC?

Eligibility for the HRTC is family based. The claim can be split among family members but the total amount claimed cannot exceed the maximum allowable. Iwo or more families share the ownership of an eligible dwelling, each family can claim its own credit (i.e., each up to $1,350) that is calculated on its respective eligible expenses.

All expenses must be supported by receipts and acceptable documentation. Keep them in case we ask to see them.

Eligible and ineligible expenses

Considering the extensive number of eligible and ineligible expenses, it is no possible to provide a complete list. The reader is responsible to check the nformation and make sure he meets all required conditions upon asking the tax credit on his income tax report.

Consult the Internet Site at http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/tx/ndvdls/sgmnts/hmwnr/hrtc/lgblty-prd-eng.html for the complete lists.

The expenses are eligible when they are incurred in relation to renovations or alterations to an eligible dwelling (or the land that forms part of the eligible dwelling) and are permanent in nature.

As a general rule, if the item you purchase will not become a permanent part of your home or property, it is not eligible.

Is gold a commodity or a currency .Gold at $1,500 is inevitable

Gold at $1,500? Don't hold your breath


Is Gold a commodity or a currency? It certainly fits the definition of a commodity: A substance of value, with a uniform quality produced by many different producers.
By Garry White
Published: 6:13PM BST 11 Oct 2009
However, unlike other commodities it has relatively few uses other than as an ornament. Copper is used in wiring, iron is used to manufacture steel but gold's main uses are – and always have been – as a store of value and as a way to demonstrate personal wealth. Even if solid gold bathroom taps are not to your taste, they certainly make a point.

This means that gold really should be considered as a currency – and nothing else. This brings us on to the subject of fiat money.

Fiat currencies are not backed by gold. When most currencies were on the gold standard, a unit of currency could be exchanged by central banks for a fixed weight of gold. That way, paper money could be used instead of using gold or silver coins.

Gold Rise to Record $1047 an ounce today

Oct. 7 (Bloomberg) -- Golds rally to a record shows commodity investors remain concerned that the U.S. economic recovery will spur inflation even as Wall Street forecasts and government bonds suggest stable prices. Bullion has jumped 19 percent this year, and futures touched a record $1,045 an ounce yesterday. Bloomberg's Monica Bertran reports. (Source: Bloomberg)

Canada Rate Hikes


Excessive real estate strength in Canada from ultralow mortgage rates could push the Bank of Canada to raise interest rates sooner or more aggressively than forecast, according to a TD Economics report on Tuesday.


The possibility is worth watching closely, the economics arm of Toronto-Dominion Bank argued, although it also said the most likely scenario is that the real estate market will moderate and inflation will remain in check.

The Bank of Canada has pledged to keep its interest rates unchanged at 0.25 percent until mid-2010, unless it sees a threat of inflation spinning out of control.

TD pointed to recent statements by the central bank that hinted that it would seek to lean against signs of emerging asset bubbles and that it is also monitoring developments in home prices.

In a recent speech, Bank of Canada Governor Mark Carney deemed the strength in existing home sales as "temporary", reflecting "pent-up demand" and improved affordability.

"The (Bank of Canada's) view at the moment is that the recent resurgence in real estate is temporary, but if it does not moderate in the coming year -- or worse still if price growth accelerates -- it could lead to an earlier and more substantial tightening in policy than currently anticipated," TD economists Craig Alexander and Grant Bishop said in the report on Tuesday.

The economists stressed that the central bank targets the rate of consumer price growth and does not target asset values.

"The key issue is whether the low interest rate environment is creating an economic imbalance that requires a rebalancing of monetary policy," the TD economists said.

Canadian real estate markets have staged a stunning turnaround this year from the end of 2008 when sales and prices retreated sharply. The latest Canadian Real Estate Association data showed August home sales were up 18.5 percent from a year ago, while prices rose 11.3 percent nationally from a year earlier to an average C$324,779 ($306,395).

TD expects sales will cool in the coming months and for price growth to return to a mid-single digit pace after months of pent-up demand and tighter mortgage pricing.

"The base-case economic forecast does not anticipate that hot real estate markets will force the Bank of Canada's hand, but it is a risk worth closely monitoring," the TD economists said.

TD expects the Bank of Canada will begin to gradually lift the benchmark overnight interest rate in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Gold Needs New Money

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- David Morgan, founder of Silver-Investor.com, says gold needs new investors and physical buying in order for the precious metal to break the $1,033 level. Morgan believes it will happen soon and shows how he's trading gold and silver.

Playing It Safe.Growing it Slowly But Surely With a Peace of Mind.

Ok yeah we haven't been updating for soooo long but well...we needed a break. Anyway the meteoric rise of the stock market makes us sick in the belly as we just didnt have any bullets left to pump in. Haizz...just spraying some water guns here and there..pathetic!!!!!Well guess there is a season for everything and we should be thankful. Anyway, now we have got some money and October does seem to be a potential month where stocks are likely to go down after the euphoria. Why do we say this?
Looking at the Baltic Dry Index which according to Wilkepedia is :
"An assessment of the price of moving the major raw materials by sea. Taking in 26 shipping routes measured on a timecharter and voyage basis, the index covers Handymax, Panamax, and Capesize dry bulk carriers carrying a range of commodities including coal, iron ore and grain." It has been going down since June 09 and some stocks are being squeezed into a tight consolidated range between the bollinger bands which classically signifies a impending move.Besides it well know that in Sep and Oct stocks do dip statistically.

But oh heck with it. We just bought some SIA Engineering and SMRT shares recently and yes we are impatient and thats bad ...really bad..illogical and unwise.Simply put...stupid.Anyway, as fundamental investors, we dont try to catch the bottom nor the top. We just wanna catch NEAR the LOCAL bottom or LOCAL top and we are in heaven. Hope nothing unforseen happens!So why these seemingly boring stocks. SMRT..what the heck!

Frankly, we did consider buying SMRT since March April of 2009 and we dismissed it in favour of other stocks as we couldnt see much growth then, other than a very very stable business sans a terrorist attack. But the news that it recently was able to sell some bonds at a low 2 +% interest caught our eye. The news that it recently concluded an acquisition of a 49% stake in China's Zona Group caught our eye. The knowledge that a certain director bought some shares in August 2009 at $1.73 made our eyebrows twitch. ( though its only 10,000 shares lah).Looking at the past dividend yield, it has been steady and increasing too and we having taken lots of MRT lately...its a super cash cow, ready for overseas expansion with their Singapore business as an ATM machine. Just look at the army of corporate warriors going to work every morning being squeezed like sardines.......One thing about this business though is that it is highly regulated by the government to keep the cost of living affordable to the majority. Anyhow..worst case we treat this stock like buying a bond, best case, it expands more aggressively overseas to justify a higher stock price and/or higher dividends.Basically, we think it the best tranport stock to own in Singapore.

So how about SIA Engineering? We figured that Singapore is becoming the center of MRO in Asia Pacific with the government paying special attention to this area. We also figured that the Singapore Airlines Group of company which comprises of Silkair, Tiger Airways, Virgin and SIA already provides a base of recurring clientship for this company. In addition, SIA is noted for being at the forefront of flying new planes like the A380 which means SIA Engineering got expertise compared with her peers. Anyhow, having briefly a stint in the aviation industry, we do think that this is a kind of engineering work where people dont just outsource to low cost countries or companies as the consequence of a shabbily done job is catastrophic. We also think that this company will be one of the beneficiaries of the spillover effect from the casinos in Singapore....OK we also noted the following...
Options were granted to employees with an exercise price of $2.25 - $4.67 to be exercisable from 2006 - 2018 and the current price now is about $2.59. Sounds pretty decent with a quite high dividend yield of 6.15% with a quite steady historical dividend payout. Well...why not...besides their ratios are fantastic.

Oh well...discipline my friend..we are working on it. Luckily, we still have some bullets left for the rest of October. Let's hit the low. Its just a game..
