    PLATINUM GROUP METALS Platinum shortages grow as car sales quicken

  • Platinum will gain 13 percent to average $1,635 an ounce by the fourth quarter of 2014, according to the mean of eight estimates by the most-accurate analysts tracked by Bloomberg in the past two years. The most-accurate list includes the top five forecasters of precious metals, and the remaining three are made up of the best analysts for gold, silver, platinum and palladium individually that provide estimates for platinum-group metals. The metals, used in catalytic converters, will be in a shortage for the longest stretch since 2005 for platinum and 2000 for palladium, Barclays Plc and Johnson Matthey Plc data show. (Bloomberg)  -  Platinum and palladium will be the best performing precious metals next year as record global car sales will keep them in short supply for a third year, according to the most-accurate forecasters. 8 percent in 2014 from 2. Platinum and palladium markets show the tightest supply and demand among precious metals and probably will throughout next year as well,&rdquo. said Daniel Briesemann, an analyst at Commerzbank AG in Frankfurt and the most-accurate palladium forecaster tracked by Bloomberg over the past two years.

    I had high hopes that 2014 would at long last bring with it an improved mobile companion app for desktop Quicken that fully supported investment, loan and other asset accounts. Instead, the only "new" functionality that was offered was "receipt capture" and a few miniscule improvements to the desktop version of the app itself. Lack of a full-featured app or version for either iOS or OSX is difficult to account for, given their widespread use.The 2013 and 2014 Quicken mobile app provides basic syncing ability between desktop Quicken and cash accounts, and some budget support. For some inexplicable reason, the 2014 app is only available after one pays Intuit its annuity payment of $60-100, depending upon the version used. Investment, loan and other asset accounts are not supported in the 2013 or 2014 releases of the app. Which begs the question: why bother to upgrade at all, or even use the app?Mint provides much more robust support for one's financial life by... 1/5 Bernard A.

    I wish I could give it zero stars

    I've been using Quicken since 1999, and while every release I've owned has had serious flaws, Quicken 2014 Deluxe is by far the worst. If it wasn't the only software package compatible with my bank's online banking service, I would have dumped it a decade ago. My last version was Q2011 Deluxe, but since support for each version is discontinued after three years--and when that happens, it won't connect to any bank online anymore--I bought Q2014 to prepare for the end of the 2011 version. But after just three days with this almost-unusable piece of garbage, I'm back to 2011 again. Some of the issues I encountered:1) It doesn't just register the software once per installation; it requires registration for every individual bank account file you use with Quicken. I have three accounts, and use Quicken on two PCs, which meant I had to register the new software SIX TIMES before installation was complete.2) The font size settings do not work correctly.

    Quicken 2014 compared to Quicken 2011

    I was a long-time Microsoft Money user, and a reluctant Quicken 2011 Premier user since late 2010 (once Microsoft announced it was no longer updating Money). The transition was somewhat laborious and annoying, but I have since grown used to Quicken. Yes, it has its quirks, but I have never lost any data and I have grown more and more dependent on it and more familiar with it over time.Based on scathing reviews of 2012 and 2013 versions, I never tried to upgrade to those versions and have no experience with them. The reviews of previous versions are similar to other reviews for 2014 in that most claim very few (positive) changes hence no real reason to upgrade. Alas, soon my online updates in Quicken 2011 will stop working in April 2014 due to Quicken's policy of only supporting the last 3 versions (2014, 2013, 2012). At least they are consistent - this has been their policy for 10+ years. I love automatic updates of my accounts, so I bit the bullet and purchased... 3/5 Jeff Waters (Dallas, TX USA) - See all my reviews, October 9, 2013

    Not Ready For Prime Time

    I have been using Quicken for more than a decade and have tolerated being forced to upgrade every few years simply because there is no better alternative to this B+ software.So I recently upgraded from Quicken 2011 (which was working tolerably) to Quicken 2014. The look and feel of the program is exactly the same as the three year old Quicken--no changes or improvements that I can see. However, the new program is clearly not ready to be released as it is filled with bugs.Most annoying is that when I try to download transactions from my bank, credit card or brokerage house, the program immediately crashes. Quicken customer service, although happy to talk to you, is hapless.

    Intuit sets a new low in competence and professionalism.

    Forewarned by abysmal ratings on Amazon, but optimistic that by now (December 30, 2013) Quicken Premier (QP) 2014 would be functioning properly, I downloaded it to a computer which didn't have Quicken on it at all, in case there was trouble. I've been a Quicken User since 1993, and have upgraded every year. QP 2013 was the worst version before 2014 came out, and it took Intuit eight revisions for the 2013 version to get it functioning by the end of 2012 (it's presently had 12 revisions). QP 2014's debut seems to have set a new low in both competence and professionalism.Two days ago (a Saturday), figuring that surely after getting feedback and having some Intuit ghost, "Kathryn," putting canned messages on the hundreds of complaints about QP 2014 (and other Quicken 2014 software) that things were fixed, or would be forwarded to something called a "development team" (a development team?

    Underwhelmed with changes from last year's version

    Changes to the UI from past years versions are virtually nil. The UI looks dated with Windows 95 era style icons in the toolbar.The UI is slow in repainting itself while scrolling large datasets, this is particularly noticeable in the Investing tab if the number of stocks exceeds what will fit in a single window view, requiring you to scroll. If I edit a row then click off of it to edit a different row somewhere else in the window, the app will occasionally become non-responsive for up to 30 seconds before allowing me to edit the new row.I have a high-end Intel i7 desktop PC with 16GB RAM and a high-end NVIDIA video card, so these types of performance issues are unacceptable.Print to PDF functionality has never worked for me in the last version or this one (error code -20). Quicken installs a printer called "Quicken PDF Printer" which one would think is a general purpose PDF printer. I had to find a third party PDF printer in order to print to PDF... 2/5 B.

    Long Time Loyal Customer/User Confused

    I started using Quicken in the 1980s printing out my checks on a dot-matrix printer.Since then, I have been a loyal customer/user, upgrading almost every year.I have seen the product go from DOS-based to Windows-based with many amazing features.I have always used the transaction downloading capabilities which have evolved to the "One-Step Updates" to all my financial institutions thus avoiding manual entries.My gripe is that the price to upgrade annually has increased, but so have the bugs. And the new functionality each year is limited. Despite that, I have continued to upgrade annually as I really like the product and typically there are some new functions I find useful. Until this year...Specifically, when I logged onto my copy of Quicken 2013 (Home&Business), a window popped up from within the Quicken 2013 program prompting me, as a current user, to upgrade to 2014.

    Some problems still not fixed

    As my version of Quicken 2011 H&B has a) suddenly stopped connecting with my bank and downloading transactions again and b) will be sunset next year anyway due to Quicken policy, I decided to give 2014 a try, so far the problems are as follows:1. Still cannot print an invoice to printer or PDF if it has a logo, tried every suggestion on 2011 and every suggestion again on 2014 and still does not work. You would think after many years and multiple new releases they would have fixed this basic functionality for the business section. Also in addition while trying to print invoices with a logo the program froze solid multiple times and I had to do the three finger control, alt delete to bring up task manager and kill the program.I was hoping to switch to H&B rather than upgrade QuickBooks for my business but H&B just does not seem professional enough2.

    Very basic. OK if you're updating from previous "Starter Edition"

    I just did a clean install of Windows 8.1 and decided to upgrade my Quicken Starter Edition 2011 to the latest version. I purchased and downloaded it directly from the Intuit website since it's currently on sale for $10 off. The installation went fine, and it doesn't have any issues with Windows 8.1. It successfully imported and converted my 2011 backup file. I only use the program to keep track of my online accounts, and download my balances, etc. For this purpose, the "Starter Edition" works fine for me. If you plan on doing any serious banking, you're gonna need at least the Deluxe version or higher. The "Starter Edition" also will not work with older Quicken files other than those saved with similar "Starter Editions".I see no visual or functionality differences in the 2014 edition of the Quicken Starter Edition from my version that was 3 years old. I see no reason to upgrade unless you really have to. It does work for me though, so I'm fairly satisfied with it. If... 3/5 D. Hentze (United States) - See all my reviews, October 17, 2013

    IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT FEES

    There is a lot of confusion about this. The main distinction to note is that there is a difference between *preparing* a tax return and *e-filing* a tax return.There is also a difference between *e-filing* a tax return and just *filing* a tax return using TurboTax : E-filing means the prepared tax return is submitted to the tax authority electronically. You can, if you wish, print the prepared tax return instead, put it in an envelope, and sent it to the tax authority by mail - this would be *filing* the tax return, as opposed to *e-filing*.For the TurboTax Deluxe Fed + Efile + State 2013 software, you are paying for software which will enable you to *prepare* up to 5 Federal tax returns and and *prepare* up to 5 State tax returns for ONE state only.When it comes to submitting the Federal tax returns, there is no e-filing fee - you can e-file up to 5 Federal tax returns electronically with this software, and there's no additional cost to do so.

    Install .Net Framework before Installing TurboTax

    TurboTax has been a trusted friend for over 10 years now. The software itself is great - always user-friendly, and makes the tax-filing season a breeze. Highly recommend TurboTax for your tax needs. With that said...... the Installation process from the Amazon download was a pain. My PC is not very old (running Windows 7 Professional with an i7 and 8 GB), so I figured the download/install process would be simple. I didn't see the other posts about people not being able to install it after downloading.

    Switching to TaxAct

    I have used TurboTax since they first hit the market. Never had a problem. This is the last year that I will ever buy TT.because of it's bugs this year and the "tough luck" attitude of Intuit. Forms that they say are available (and which are available in every other tax program ) are not being recognized by the actual software. An example is form 8379 Injured Spouse Allocation. You try to use it because you have received email from Intuit saying it is available but the program just continues to tell you that it isn't available yet. Crappy quality control. Should have been found before release. But evenmow that many people are telling them about this problem they still ignore it and just keep telling us it is our fault... we must be doing something wrong. We are not the problem and they should be ashamed of the quality of their program this year.As I said, I'm ditching this and going to TaxAct. Just wish I could get a refund on TT this year but it is software so... 1/5 Bob Meighan, VP TurboTax, January 24, 2014

    THIS VERSION HAS BEEN REDESIGNED AND IT'S AWFUL!

    I have been a happy Quicken user for years dating all the way back to when it was launched in a DOS version. Subsequent versions in Windows have shown steady improvement, and annual updates never radically changed what was a pretty reliable and well-thought-out product. Until now, that is. It looks as though for the 2014 iteration, developers decided to revise just about everything about this product's features, and in the process, they have made it incredibly more difficult to use and work with. The reconcile feature no longer lets you arrange transactions in ascending or descending order of amount. The graphic user interface on the budget feature makes it three times harder to work with, let alone to just view a budget. And there are many many other little changes and 'improvements' that just make keeping our books so much more of a task than it used to be. It was a total waste of money and I am not even going to donate my disk, rather opting to shred it lest someone else get... 1/5 J. Parfrey (Denver, CO) - See all my reviews, March 30, 2014

    have not had a problem with this product

    I have had Quicken for financial purposes since I was a boy. I am 68 years old. Having just up-dated to the 2014 version, the product is so very similar to what I had from 2011 as to be pretty indistinguishable. Well, maybe the font is little big, but we all need to be flexible.The upgrade involved migrating 74,567 transactions; would that make me near top of the list? The changeover took all of fifteen minutes or so. Now I realize in this day and age that might be unacceptable, but I got a little nap in and felt fit as a fiddle afterward.Indeed, I was fearful of all these rumor mongers predicting the end of time, at least as far as my money was concerned. But it went fine, it really did. Perhaps I am just lucky or have a bit of patience.

    What Happened Intuit?

    I have used Quicken since before Windows 3.1, when it was just a text-based application. It's always been reliable, friendly, and a tool I can trust. I recently upgraded from Quicken 2007 to Quicken 2014. BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER.Rather than choosing the download, I got the version on CD. This version is seriously broken. I converted my old 2007 files without a hitch, but about a week later, the FILES WERE CORRUPTED. Yep, that's right - I couldn't open them, and Quicken didn't offer any suggestions on how to resolve the issue. It simply said something along the lines of "Sorry, try starting a new file!" Really?Fortunately, my new backup system (which I had only just setup a few days earlier) had an uncorrupted version of my file which I was able to recover. I had only lost a dozen or so entries, so I re-entered them, and lo-and-behold, the file get's corrupted AGAIN. At this point, you can imagine my frustration!I decided to check and... 1/5 Robin Warren - See all my reviews, March 23, 2014

    Slow To Release Forms and Too Much Marketing

    I've been using TurboTax since 1997, but this could well be my last year. The drill is pretty consistent year to year, so I can get through it quickly with some upfront organization - like reviewing credit card statements, checkbook register, and investment statements then consolidating my deductions and investment income in an Excel spreadsheet before starting TT. I'm usually ready to file after the first week of January, but end up waiting until February for everyone else to get their act together - whether it is the IRS or Intuit updating their software or banking institutions that take too long printing out forms with numbers that were already well accrued for the year - everyone seems to have an excuse.I've successfully used the TT e-file to get my Federal taxes in this year. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to submit my Arizona taxes at the same time due to Intuit not having Form 140 completed.

    State download misleading; Quirks continue

    I have been using TurboTax since about 1994, and have watched it evolve. In general, I like how it works, and am used to its overall approach. In the 2013 version, I noted a couple of things which I hope will be fixed in later versions:1) When starting the process to select and download the one included "state" package, the dialog box shows the state you have selected in an area entitled "states not yet paid for." Along the top, there is a progress indicator, showing that the next phase will collect billing information. That was disconcerting and misleading enough for me to go back to the physical box and make sure I bought the correct product that includes one state for free. When I confirmed that I had the right product, I continued the process, and it turns out that it skips over the billing and goes right to the download phase - indicating that the one state was included for free. Whew. Good news, but the interface shouldn't imply that you will be... 3/5 K. Gregg (Tucson, AZ USA) - See all my reviews, January 14, 2014

    A solid and reliable tax software program that I have used for many years!

    I do our taxes every year and it is a tedious job. If it wasn't for TurboTax I probably would have it done. This year's version is pretty much the same as past years and I am glad because I have used the software for as long as I can remember and I like following the same walk through routine that TurboTax makes you follow. Using TurboTax is fast and easy and I like several features that I use every year:* The ability to import last year's data automatically into this year's preparation.* The ability to E-file your taxes with the federal government which speeds up your refund, if you are getting one.* The itemized deductions for gifts to charity is very helpful as we donate quite a bit every year and it makes it easier to compile a list, keep it for your records and come up with a reasonable value to claim on your taxes.* I actually pre-calculate my next year's taxes and print out the forms to mail in quarterly payments for the next year's taxes to avoid... 5/5 jjceo (Greenwood, Indiana) - See all my reviews, November 26, 2013

    Earlier issues resolved

    I've been a Quicken user for 23 years (since 1990). I started out upgrading every year, but after a few less-than-great versions I became more selective about buying upgrades. My Quicken 2010 Deluxe was almost to end-of-life (with regard to transaction downloads), so I had to decide whether to purchase the new 2013 version, or perhaps find a 2012 copy. Reading all the negative reviews here on Amazon initially scared me off 2013, but as I monitored reviews across the Internet it appeared to be getting better. I put in my Christmas gift request for 2013 Deluxe, and am happy to report that my transition from Q10 to Q13 has been very smooth. The new version automatically uninstalled my Q10, installed Q13, and updated it with all the patches (release 10). I had almost 200,000 entries that converted without any issue, and all my stock history came across cleanly as well.

    Not ready for prime time

    I was perfectly happy with Quicken 2012 but when I saw that 2013 had an iPad app I had to take the plunge. Throughout my day, I spend a lot of pocket cash that I often forget about, and the idea of being able to enter transactions directly on my iPad and then sync them when I got home was *very* appealing to me since I'd often end a month with a few hundred dollars in "pocket cash" when my wallet only had $20 in it.However, the cloud experience just flat out does not work. I added all of my accounts, but when I log into the iPad App it tells me to go to my computer and add the accounts. I've tried cloud sync several times. After about 5 minutes, a window pops up that "Quicken has stopped responding" with options to close the program or continue waiting. I picked "Continue" then took my dogs for a walk, only to return 20 minutes later to the same message and I have a *VERY* fast Internet connection (it took about 1 minute to download the Quicken program itself)... 2/5 Kathryn, October 15, 2012
