Re: Trades - check Oil!/Silverbear

Nice trade. I'm in U.S.$ so don't trade those TSX double ETFs there anymore. They are good for fast trades but a killer for those that buy and hold them with the downward bias on them.
And yes I caught the ETF:GDXJ Wed and bailed 1st thing in the morning Thursday. Could have done much better had I held it all day. So much for hindsight. The time to sell Gold stocks tends to be in the 1st 20min of trading when all the wild eyed Gold Bugs are buying with both hands. They just can't help themselves. Like junkies needing their fixes. And sure enough I got filled at the early morning highs and no sooner looked at my fill price and my monitor and prices were showing red on my software hitting the lows of the morning. They did come back and broke out over their downtrendlines later but I was happy to grab a safe handful and get back into cash again. A bird in the hand is better than two in the bush. Especially when the bush is full of wild animals and other hunters, lol.....
