Need your help

Greetings! Would you know what is the function in excel on how to compute for the future value of investment at the amount adjusted for inflation? e.g. amount invested = 100,000; years to invest = 30 years; interest rate per yr.= 8%; inflation rate per yr.= 3%; additional investment per month = 5,000.
Assumptions are monthly compounding of interest; interest earnings are tax deferred. Your help will be greatly appreciated. Many thanks!

How is the best way to purchase gold as a short to medium investment.

I think gold investment is an excellent idea for any investor, but only as part of a balanced portfolio.For most people about 10% of their investment portfolio is sensible to invest in gold.

There are many benefits to gold investment and one of the main ones is that gold is generally perceived as a safe medium-long term investment. There are pros and cons, so it's important to know what you need from your investments. Gold for example doesn't offer dividend yield like shares. There are many benefits though including gold is easy to buy/sell, it's a highly liquid form of asset and it's generally better to invest in gold in times of economic uncertainty and high inflation. Tax regimes vary from country to country, but in some there are tax advantages of investing in gold.

Investing in gold coins adds a bit of interest in terms of collectability, but also investing in gold bullion is a sound idea too.

I have a starting amount of $2,125. I invest some of it in a bank that pays 4% a year and some in another back that pays 5% a year. After one year I have earned $100. How much money did I invest in ea

There are 2 values for interest, say R and r, and R = 0.05, r = 0.04

There are 2 values for the amount earned, from the 2 banks, say I and i, and we know I + i = 100

There are 2 values for principal invested, say P and p, and we know P + p = 2125

There is only one value for period, say t = 1

So then I = P * 0.05 * 1 and
i = p * 0.04 * 1 and
I + i = 100 and
P + p = 2125


0.05P + 0.04p = 100
P + p = 2125
P = 2125 - p
0.05 ( 2125 - p) +0.04p = 100
106.25 - 0.05p + 0.04p = 100
106.25 - 0.01p = 100
0.01p = 6.25
p = 625
P = 2125 - 625 = 1500

so the amounts were $1500 and $625

Excel 2007

The IRR function is provided by Excel so you can calculate an internal rate of return for a series of values. The IRR is the interest rate accrued on an investment consisting of payments and income that occur at the same regular periods. In the values provided to the function, you enter payments you make as negative values and income you receive as positive values.
For instance, let's say you are investing in your daughter's business, and she will make payments back to you annually over the course of four years. You are planning to invest $50,000, and you expect to receive $10,000 in the first year, $17,500 in the second year, $25,000 in the third, and $30,000 in the fourth.
Since the $50,000 is money you are paying out, it is entered in Excel as a negative value. The other values are entered as positive values. For instance, you could enter –50000 in cell D4, 10000 in cell D5, 17500 in cell D6, 25000 in cell D7, and 30000 in cell D8. To calculate the internal rate of return, you would use the following formula:
The function returns an IRR of 19.49%.
The ranges you use with the IRR function must include at least one payment and one receipt. If you get a #NUM error, and you have included payments and receipts in the range, then Excel needs more information to calculate the IRR. Specifically, you need to provide a "starting guess" for Excel to work with. For example:
=IRR(D4:D8, -5%)
This usage means that the IRR function starts calculating at –5%, and then recursively attempts to resolve the IRR based on the values in the range.
