  • GLD And Gold Miners Had A Great Day  5 comments
    Mar 6, 2013 8:50 PM | about stocks: GLD, NUGT, AUMN

    GLD, as I expected, successfully tested its double bottom today. May see 156.00+ again in coming days:

    Once again, buying at open gap down at strong support proved to be a valid short term trading strategy.

    NUGT - It gaped down at $4.77, which proved to be a very good entry price and it had a great day, up 15.30% and more to come:

    AUMN - Finally it closed with good run after five big down days. Shorts tried very hard to bring it down as much as possible. It successfully tested a double bottom and then a break-out today. Up 13% from its bottom today. $2.16 should be served as its near term lows.

    See 5-minute chart:

    Disclosure: I am long NUGT, AUMN.

    Stocks: GLD, NUGT, AUMN

    James, what do you think of today's sell-off in gold and gold miners?

    Author’s reply » Bought many today: AUMN 2.19; HL 3.51; HMY 5.73; EXK 5.61.


    Gold and silver short term bottomed today, my view.

    James, to me, it's beginning to look more and more like $GDX is going to retest 2008 lows... what are your thoughts? Congratulations on $ACI, by the way.

    Author’s reply » My view:


    Gold/silver miners are never long term investment tools. Only short term trade.


    Check out gold/silver(GLD and SLV) and miner prices (GDX, GDXJ) since 2008:


    GLD - 80->151 up 88.75%;
    GDX - $45 ->$34.18 down 24%.


    The reason: cost to produce gold keeps raising in very rapid pace over the years and buy-and-hold investors will lose big over the years.


    Therefore I only use my short term oversold/overbought tech indicators to do short term trading and can gain 10% or more in short period of time:


    HL - 3.51 -> 4.10 (+16%);
    HMY - 5.73 -> 6.30 (+10%);
    EXK - 5.61 -> 6.30 (+123%)
    AUMN is the lager.


    I will buy them back when next buy signal comes.
