I still haven't quite figured out how these PM's work. I'm currently holding a few: GG, DROOY, HGMCY, AEM. Sometimes they go UP if the price of gold goes up, sometimes they go down if the price of gold goes up. And visa versa. Some rise when the market goes up, some fall. I can't really get a feeling for the patterns. What I HAVE learned is that if I use a stop, I will be stopped out, the price will go right back up to where it was, and I feel like a jackass- it's happened more than once. So... for now, no more stops. Then again, if they go down and don't come back up again, I'm screwed. Regardless, I'm holding for the long term and if I lose my money, it won't be the first time. The only other alternative is physical gold that I pay a hefty commission for, can't put in a safety deposit box (as per Merciless) and will likely have my cleaning lady retiring in Cabo San Lucas. I'm open for enlightenment.
