Still Good

After the disastrous day in the markets Friday, I am still up $110 for the week! Friday did not hit Canada as badly as the USA. All is still good! We can go out for dinner. Well, maybe lunch!

All in all, my investments are rising. There are good days and bad days but the good far outnumber the bad. Norma is getting nervous and saying we should get out of precious metals for a while. She is listening to too many doom and gloom financial consultants on the radio. I will talk to my "guy" before we leave.

My precious metals actually went up a bit last week. It was the more conservative funds that brought me back down. I need a crystal ball.


  1. what's that old saying "Bulls make money, bears make money, but pigs they go to slaughter". I guess the trick is figuring out which you are!

  2. Gold is in a short term downtrend. After the U.S. election, the $USD will resume it's slump (no matter who wins) and that will be good for precious metals.

    1. That is what I have been thinking Kevin. I have held on for several downturns and recoveries so why not one more? It always comes back.

  3. I'd loan you mine, but it has been "broken" for some time :)
