Perfect Timing on Gold

May 20, 2017

Perhaps the timing was not exactly perfect, but it was close.  The chart shows red circles where I was buying, and the blue boxes were the sell orders. I was buying on April 27 just under $31, which I thought was the bottom, but it wasn’t, so I averaged down again on May 5 at […]

Inflection Point 2017

April 8, 2017

So, where are we at?  Are we at an inflection point, a turning point, or will it be more of the same? The general market, as measured by the S&P 500, peaked at the beginning of March, and has faded since.  However, if you measure performance since the start of the year, it’s still up, […]
