Thunderbog you do spout some rubbish at times, it just means that NS&I have reached the target that was set for them and as they say in the release, normalise and align the rates with savings in general.

normalising.. but 1% is not appealing for an average return from PBs.

1% mean return is very unattractive on premium bonds.
The big money 'prizes' skew the mean return and most holders earn considerably less than 1%. The more meaningful average is the median return.

so..
i'd be prepared to bet that Gold is higher priced, in pounds, a year from now than it is today?
You're on.

The price quoted on gold.co.uk is around GBP1400. I bet you one imutual share that it's less than that on 1 June 2021.
A couple of weeks late, the half-time position is today's gold price is GBP1381.

No. Same reasons I gave in May/June last year: gold has been at a historic high. With some reduction in weakness of GBP, the only way for gold is down.

i think gold will move up - but for me it's only really a secondary hedge behind bitcoin.
