In 10 £7k blocks
5 individual shares which
must be in the FTSE 250
want 1 pharmaceutical and 1 supermarket, and all must be in different segments
3 in Uk or combined UK/Overseas investment or unit trusts
2 in overseas unit trusts (not European as I have enough in them already)

Any thoughts?

Can't answer your question but if I had a spare £70K to invest
I would'nt necessarily stick to the FTSE 250. I would put some in

City Pub (CPC) and
Learning Technologies (LTG)

Good luck whatever you decide.

There's an awful lot of newly "printed" fiat currency around since SARS-CoV2 reared its ugly head. Always worth looking at the historical performances of assets in terms of the price of gold to get a truer perspective. $35 an ounce when the gold standard was abandoned in 1971, $1,700 today.

Gold/Silver ratio has been making record highs too - 15 for most of history going back to before Roman times, 120 recently.

Do you use options, CB?

Silver is interesting and worth following

Some good commodities miners on AIM , worth doing your research

Avoid investing in the USA Nasdaq , expensive tax for non US residents when you sell you shares (35%).
You need to factor it into any purchase.

Roadrunner46 - that’s not true

The fed simply print more imaginary money

And where has that money ended up? On an inflated stock market

Inflated stock markets a sign of impending  mass inflation

Silver up another 8% today!  Havn't checked but that would be a rise of over 50% in the last month.

How to get things seriously wrong!!!!

Not sure this pops up correctly so here is the Financial Times Article from the 3rd July. Easy to get thing wrong of course.
   
John Dizard JULY 3 2020

If gold was the metal that drove the conquistadors mad, in recent decades silver has had the power to induce near-psychotic states among its holders. I almost wrote “investors”, but that is too dispassionate a term for the true believers in silver.

In recent months, gold has become a respectable part of institutional core strategies, providing a useful anchor to windward in the post-coronavirus markets.

The price of silver, though, has been left behind by the now fashionable cohort of gold bugs. Silver is still up for the year in dollar terms at just above $18 per troy ounce. The gold/silver ratio reached its all-time peak on March 18, when the silver price collapsed to $11.94. At that point the spot price of a troy ounce of gold was worth 126.5 ounces of silver.

Since then the “GSR”, as silverados would put it, has drifted down to below 100, where it has been bouncing gently since the end of May. For the silver people, the relative strength in the price of gold is a buy signal. But they believe almost anything is a buy signal.

Most non-US metals people think of silver in terms of its utility for tableware, jewellery, or superior electrical conductivity. For a certain kind of American silver is part of an ideology.

The good news is that unlike gold, silver is really too cheap to be worth faking

John Dizard
It goes along with owning a semi-automatic rifle with lots of spare ammunition. Canned goods. Conspiracy theories. Contempt for urban liberals. They are way past voting Republican. The most committed are “silver stackers” who squirrel away stacks of silver coins to trade for essentials after societal collapse.

Do not argue with these people. Just back off, without making any sudden or threatening movements.

Your true silver believer thinks the GSR should be much, much lower than 96 or 98 to one. And, to be fair to them, Isaac Newton would agree, if he was around today. Newton believed the GSR should be fixed at 16 to 1.

Metal markets professionals do not share that view. CPM, an industry advisory firm that does not trade or sell the metals or related securities, has a house view that silver prices will not sink as they did in March, but are likely to trade above $16 and below $20.

That is not enough to spark a silver mining boom. The newest significant silver mine, at Sotkamo in Finland, has not been a runaway success since it opened last year. The management, which had not, reportedly, fully price-hedged its production, has recently changed.

Mining investors are more enthusiastic about the prospects for other metals, such as nickel, copper and cobalt. As one of them says: “There is much more emphasis on capital spending discipline. With silver, you have significant above ground stocks.”

And that is the problem for the silver enthusiasts. Yes, the world’s mine output runs short of industrial, investment and jewellery demand.

The global gold market is breaking up

But there are billions of ounces of silver that has already been mined and then stored as bullion or turned into retail artefacts which can easily be melted down. That probably explains the apparent price resistance when the metal trades near $20.

The good news is that unlike gold, silver is really too cheap to be worth faking. On the other hand, it is also too cheap to be of much interest to major banks. Forty or fifty years ago, there were rafts of precious metal groups at major banks, shuttling tonnes of metal through their vaults.

In recent years, the physical trade in precious metals has attracted too many compliance costs and scandals to be interesting to most banks. Even first-rank hedge funds have difficulty getting ready access to the physical market for gold. Silver? They’ll call back later.

If you ignore these cautions and are still intrigued by silver, you could be haunted by the ghost of Nelson Bunker Hunt. Almost 40 years to the day before the March crash in silver, he was forced to meet billion-dollar-bank-crisis-triggering margin calls for his silver positions. From the peak of Texas rich, he became bankrupt.

Interesting thread, wonder what the op done, also wondering why the op wanted 250 companies?  Cheaper to trade with no stamp duty? Or just because the weighting of the 100 with oil and Banks ect?

Interesting times for sure, and notice the AG price has hiked steeply this year.

Does anyone understand the dealings of futures markets, was reading about softbanks 10B punt on tech stocks futures and how they and others like them have been blamed for recent falls as they cashed out.

Heard some right old tripe spouted and, BBC had some goat on saying big  traders are on mostly on holiday through the summer and used that as an excuse for recent tech stock declines, Ffs where do they find these munkees.

any thorts?

Hard to believe that we were discussing the FTSE reaching 6000 not so long ago and today it has broken through 6900 with every chance that it will be 7000 by the end of the month. My best rises have been National Express 120 after the Covid19 outbreak last year up to 325, Lloyds Bank up from 35 to 43 pence and Royal Mail up from 280 to 480 in less than a year. The bad news with a balanced retirement portfolio is the vanishingly low interest on fixed interest savings.
