Investors on the street are paying close attention to the FED and gold movement, and the recent phenomena of people cashing out on scrap-gold has turned the luxury applications of gold into an investment strategy.

The return of the day-trader is surely here. On the TSX exchanges, there are too many bargains to even get our heads around. We are confident in the Resource market, it has bottomed and unlike 10 years ago when these speculative juniors wouldn’t even trade, we are seeing a large amount of volume, on otherwise speculative-high risk juniors. This gives us the impression that the liquidity issue is over, and the demand for the US dollar from cashing out on brokerage accounts is over.

Closed most positions, gave up on investing and started trading options instead. Worked for me.
Will go long again when I see “change I can believe in”, meaning I will buy almost no US stocks, just a bunch of ADRs. Already bought and sold once (into this dead-cat bounce), will do so again as needed.
