It was a busy day of trading for me today. With these markets, you just never know what you are going to get… Even though precious metals and commodities have been bludgeoned as of late, for whatever the reason, mining stocks decided to

Portfolio Update: It’s Beet Red These Days! (November 12, 2015)

Recently, a good friend of mine decided to start investing in the junior mining sector space. It did not take long for them to realize just how cyclical this market really is! Since surging in October, gold mining stocks have been trading in a severe downtrend for about the last 10 trading sessions or so. My friend was not fortunate enough to be able to time the market

Oh boy, what a terrible week for gold mining stocks! When it rains it pours, as they so often say. Fortunately, as a buyer, these down weeks provide some of the best opportunities that we have to add to our positions. By no means do I think

As a motivated buyer, you’ve got to love down days like today. I used the big drop to add to my positions. I’ve been making a lot of purchases as of late, but I don’t anticipate this surge of activity to continue for much longer. Actually, as we head towards the end of the year, my main focus will again shift back towards building up my cash positions.

I gotta say, I’m thankful for my income and passive income streams (from all 8 rental properties), which are making all of this speculation possible. I realize that I’ve

Mining All-Star Lineup: My $100,000 Lottery Ticket(s)

Ever played the lottery and had high hopes of winning it big? I’ll confess, I have… More so when I was a little kid, but even most recently (September 2013), I’ll admit to having purchased a few lottery tickets. In fact, at my old company, we used to pool funds together and play semi-regularly. I can’t say I ever had much success with it, though, perhaps winning $20 was the highlight of my gambles…

What can I say? These days, I’ve got gold on my mind… But it’s not that I’ve been seduced by the intoxicatingly beautiful yellow metal (although I will confess that physical gold bullion is quite alluring to marvel at). No, rather, my fascination with gold quite literally

I’ve made a few new transactions over these past few months, so I thought I would give readers an update on the overall status of my portfolio.

For starters, I’m still holding majority cash, as I continue to make a conscious effort to boost up the reserves as much as I possibly can on any given month. In my mind, I still believe that
