Yes the markets have been psychotic but I have not lost money and even made a little buy covering my ASSetts and being extremely paranoid with my trading. Good thing too as a lot of traders have had their heads handed to them this year. Summer months tend to be low volume and non trending so one must be nimble to cherry pick the trades now. So far so good. Not losing is far more important to me than making more of the stuff. Seasonally the precious metals and Agricultural markets like Fertilizer manufacturers and farm equipment type of stocks and their ETFs historically run up from the summer/fall months to the end of the year. Here is a pic of the Southern end of Vancouver Island. This is what we put on the Glossy brochures to bring in business and tourists. We waited for the rain to stop to take this one. That took awhile,lol.
